Ayrton has launched its new MagicBurst fixture - the industry’s first high-power graphic LED strobe to offer continuous, unlimited rotation on its pan and tilt axes. The strobe was first unveiled in Frankfurt earlier this year at Prolight + Sound 2016.
MagicBurst is the company’s first strobe unit, and the world’s only motorised strobe. Its 384mm x 384mm square face supports 3,840 high-output white LEDs grouped into 64 pixels on an 8 x 8 matrix.
With a new, state-of-the-art, ultra-compact 1,300W power supply, MagicBurst can deliver a peak light output of over 240,000 lumens – perfectly calibrated at 5600K - for several seconds, and put it into continuous rotation.
The strobe duration, speed and intensity of each LED pixel group can be individually controlled, and individual sections controlled to create graphic arrays, moving checker-boards, flashing letters, etc. MagicBurst also has a library of fixed images and pre-programmed dynamic effects.
With a minimalist design and reduced visual footprint, MagicBurst is similar in panel/head dimensions to Ayrton's MagicPanel-FX and DreamPanel product family. This standardised format allows it to be combined in arrays with units of the same size to create giant graphic arrays.
The new strobe has selectable Auto, Stage and Studio ventilation modes, with self-adjusting variable speed fans for quiet operation in Auto mode. Its extended serial connectivity means MagicBurst can be controlled via DMX-RDM, ArtNet, sACN or a wireless link using CRMX TiMo RDM from LumenRadio.
