ADB @ ISE2018
Claypaky and ADB took part together at Integrated Systems Europe (ISE), the largest event devoted to integrated audio-video systems in the world. The four-day annual event took place at RAI Amsterdam in the Netherlands from 6 to 9 February.
The two companies are part of the international Osram group and are pursuing a common design programme for the development of stage lighting products featuring advanced technology and performance, while maintaining the peculiarities of each brand.
Pio Nahum, Claypaky CEO said: “Claypaky and ADB together offer one of the most complete packages in today’s entertainment technology industry, including static and moving-head lights with LED, halogen or discharge lamps, as well as lighting control equipment, and dimming and networking systems. It is a range of complete solutions for any type of project: television studios and theatres of all sizes, corporate events, congress halls, multi-purpose spaces, retail environments, places of worship, cruisers and theme parks. The products offered by the two brands are perfectly complementary, and cover the whole spectrum of needs of people who work in the lighting field. For this reason, we deemed it essential to take part with a joint booth at an exhibition devoted to system integration”.
ADB NEW PRODUCTS
The new ADB KLEMANTIS is an asymmetric cyclight based on a six-color LED module, which uses cutting-edge HCR (High Color Rendering) LED technology to deliver a wide selection of colors from bold hues to pastel shades. Thanks to an innovative algorithm, the unit is capable of achieving a stable CRI of over 97 (up to 99), as well as an impressive tunable white light ranging from 2500K to 8000K
IMAGO and IMAGO WING are flexible, professional tools for modern programming. They are compact, lightweight, ergonomic, sophisticated, universal lighting control desks, which are always on hand, and can be easily carried around in a backpack. IMAGO is based on a keypad, a sequential crossfade, six Subfaders and six Executor keys with illuminated keys. The IMAGO WING completes the IMAGO family offering, when associated to the IMAGO, additional control possibilities.
HATHOR SOFTWARE: exclusive ADB proprietary software. Version 2.0 has recently been released with innovative features, including the availability of over 30 thousand fixture libraries. A new logo has been created to hallmark and promote all ADB Hathor-basedcontrol systems. A special section has been added to the new ADB general catalogue.
EMPHASY is an LED profile spot for accent lighting with an elegant, compact, lightweight design. The unit has built-in electronic control, and is fan-less for total silence. It is the perfect solution for all applications where the fixture cannot be hidden and an object or an architectural detail has to be enhanced; for instance in museums, art galleries, shopwindows, exhibition stands, restaurants, hotel lobbies, churches and other commercial and entertainment venues. EMPHASY features a high colour rendering index (CRI>95), stable over time, and a very high light output for its power consumption. The lens designed around the LED delivers a precise, sharp, perfectly diffused beam. The unit is available in various versions, with different beam angles (19°, 26°, 36° or 50°), colour temperatures (3200K or 5600K), body finishing colour (black or white).A DMX version for theatrical use is available.
“KREIOS” LIGHT LINE: The Kreios product range has officially become part of the ADB world. They are products made by Osram, the group both ADB and Claypaky belong to, but their marketing has now been entrusted exclusively to ADB, since this light is best used in the theatrical, television and architectural sectors. Kreios units have recently been installed at the futuristic Louvre Abu Dhabi Museum.
The most important rigs build by ADB last year include ones at:
Sydney Opera House Seoul Art Center Lotte Concert Hall, Korea Taipei National Theatre & Concert Hall Rhein-Main-Hallen Wiesbaden Münchner Kammerspiele Théâtre National de Chaillot Cité Musicale à Boulogne Billancourt Théâtre du Rond-Point Louvre Abu Dhabi Museum.
