Ayrton introduces new IP65 rated fixtures at Prolight + Sound Frankfurt

Ayrton is set to reveal new products at Prolight + Sound 2023 in Frankfurt.

Weighing only 28.5kg, Rivale Profile has been designed to push limits and is Ayrton’s most versatile luminaire to date.

Equipped with a 160mm frontal lens and a brand new 450W high-efficiency LED
module, calibrated at 6.5kW with a luminous flux of 27,000 lumens, Rivale Profile
can produce an ultra-intensive beam of 4° – close to that of Ayrton’s famous “LT”
versions – with a 13:1 zoom ratio and a zoom range of 4° to 52°.

A brand new high-definition progressive CMY colour mixing system allows for a
perfect reproduction of pastel colours. A variable Deep RED channel optimises
the colour rendering index at low levels and offers a progressive red with a high
level of saturation for specific needs.

A progressive CTO and a seven-position colour wheel complete the palette of tools dedicated to creating colour.

Rivale Profile is factory equipped with a wheel of seven rotating gobos, a wheel
of eight fixed gobos, a framing section that allows the precise positioning of each
shutter blade on 100% of the surface with a rotation of +/- 90°, an iris diaphragm,
a monochromatic effect wheel, two combinable rotating prisms and two frost

By utilising innovative materials and state-of-the-art technology, Ayrton has
minimised this fixture’s weight to enable it to accomplish exceptional feats and
deliver outstanding performance.

Developed for mixed-use indoors and outdoors- in all conditions – Rivale Profile, has a unique visual signature that foreshadows the style of Ayrton’s future line and secures the Ayrton name as a ‘no-compromise’ brand.

Part of Ayrton’s Classical IP65 3 Series, and complete with continuous rotation of
the pan and tilt movement, Rivale Profile is a unique projector, unparalleled on
the market, that successfully boasts performance, creativity, subtlety, and power.

For the first time in its history, Ayrton is presenting a weather-sealed effects
luminaire that offers as much creative potential indoors as outside. Argo 6
combines a minimalist design incorporating features for total protection against
harsh weather with easier internal access.

The window, made of highly resistant and exceptionally transparent polycarbonate with a V-0 protection rating, is designed to ensure optimal visuals.

A new composite alloy, reduction in thickness of the parts, an optimised cooling system, simplified lens guidance, and integration of low-density optical components, mean Ayrton has been able to reduce overall weight by 20%.

Available as Wash or FX versions, Argo 6 is equipped with 19 LEDs of 40W with
RGB+W additive colour synthesis that can deliver a light output of 13,000
lumens. Argo 6 can obtain a highly intense beam with a zoom ratio of 14:1 and a
wide zoom range from 4° to 56°.

For the first time, Ayrton has provided individual control of the LEDs on the Argo
6 Wash version and added a virtually infinite library of effects. Argo 6 Wash is a
precise machine that can obtain perfect colour reproduction.

A complete library of pre-programmed colours allows for quick creation of subtle, dense, and contrasting swaths of light. Its black honeycomb and perfect separation of the light sources help to significantly boost the level of contrast.

Argo 6 FX is a versatile fully-equipped luminaire designed for a multitude of
applications. It borrows from the main features of the Wash version and offers continuous rotation of the pan and tilt movement I.R.S. TM. Argo 6 FX is equipped
with a high-definition liquid effect system enhanced by a translucent honeycomb
that can generate complex graphic effects LiquidEffect TM.

Both Argo 6 Wash and Argo 6 FX can be used alone or in combination with the
main LED matrix. By allowing for more precision and exactness, they add a
breath of creativity. Part of Ayrton’s Multi Sources IP65 6 Series, Argo 6 allows
you to rediscover a new sense of pure freedom.

More Ayrton products will be presented during Prolight + Sound in Ayrton’s famous light show on the booth (Hall 12.0 Booth D74) where Zonda 3 Wash and Zonda 3 FX, its older,
larger siblings Zonda 9 FX and Zonda 9 Wash, plus Domino Wash, Huracán
Wash, and the laser-sourced Cobra will be exciting the audiences with their
creative abilities.

Next door to the Ayrton booth Women in Lighting, supported by Ayrton, will have its own booth (Hall 12.0 D72) which will be run by founders Sharon Stammers and Martin Lubach of Light Collective, and Ayrton’s Kseniia Igoshkina as well as Topstage’s Linnea Ljungmark.

This is a space in which to relax and network with the team. A programme of WIL talks will present a new speaker each day in the Theatre + Light Stage (Hall 12.0 Stand C26). Speakers include Daksha Suryavamshi of Tranzept, Raquel Rosildete from Berlin and Sophie Blondeau from PixMob.

There will also be a daily gathering at 5pm in the Ayrton VIP Lounge for more drinks,
snacks, and chats for attendees of Prolight + Sound 2023.
