"We saw enormous interest," said CEO Pio Nahum and Marketing Manager Davide Barbetta. "The theme itinerary through the three showrooms worked in a continuous cycle, yet there were visitors waiting to enter at every time of day, and their numbers even increased on the last days. We think word got round of a highly detailed demo, put together by our technical team consisting of Claypaky's lighting designers, Marco Zucchinali and Giulia Sabeva, and visual design experts."


The ZAC-EYE
THE FUTURE THAT FOLLOWS

the Zac-Eye, which made its international début at the show, aroused much attention. It is the first stand-alone follow-spot to use artificial intelligence: the movements of Claypaky lights are controlled automatically by a highly innovative device that connects to them via Ethernet. Its 3D optical sensor detects all the objects on stage, and a sophisticated algorithm distinguishes human shapes from the rest of the surroundings. In this way, it is possible to follow up to 4 actors on stage independently and automatically with any Claypaky light.

The AXCOR 300
SMALL WITH GREAT PERSONALITY

The AXCOR 300 family of ultra-compact LED moving heads was presented for the first time at PL+S. The Axcor Spot, Axcor Wash and Axcor Beam, equipped with max. 180W white LEDs, aroused a great deal of interest among all the lighting professionals at the show owing to their high performance at an affordable price. The quality of their effects, their practical built-in features, and their high light output stem from the high-end products Claypaky is specialized in. The AXCOR 300 models bring new modes of creative expression to theatres, tours, events, TV studios, and fixed installations.
