Ayrton's Kyalami design is a perfect synthesis of elegance and functionality. With a minimalist shape and compact construction, this laser luminaire stands out for its modern aesthetics and its ability to adapt to a wide range of environments. Its extremely miniaturized cylindrical design, with a sphere of only 265 mm that incorporates its 100 W laser module, allows for flexible and discreet installation, while its front, with a strategically positioned lens, provides a unique visual signature. With carefully designed details and precision engineering, Kyalami not only offers exceptional performance, but also elevates the aesthetic appearance of any space where it is installed.

Kyalami adopts a minimalist style due to the Simplified waterproofing and continuous rotation of pan and tilt movement, increasing the possibilities to generate complex effects and making this luminaire a universal tool capable of facing any challenge in all conditions.

In addition, IP65 rating ensures exceptional resistance to dust and water. Whether at outdoor events, architectural installations exposed to the elements or in humid conditions, Ayrton's Kyalami offers safe and long-lasting performance, ensuring high quality lighting in any situation.

Furthermore, this latest generation laser source allows for remarkable energy efficiency, reducing energy consumption and long-term operating costs.

3. Unparalleled graphic and creative capacity

The graphic and creative capabilities of Ayrton's Kyalami are truly impressive, offering lighting designers a wide range of possibilities to create captivating and unique visual effects. Kyalami is provided with an innovative color section that includes a progressive high-definition CMY color mixing system and a multi-position, instant-access color wheel equipped with five corrective filters and 17 complementary color filters. Additionally, this luminaire offers a wide selection of 29 fixed metal gobos designed to sculpt light in 'beam mode''. These gobos can be mixed with two individually combinable rotating prisms allowing you to produce a multitude of volumetric lighting effects. A light and heavy frost filter completes the palette of graphics tools.
