Clay Paky Alpha Beam 1500 fixtures helped Atomic Lighting shine at the 11th annual Latin Grammy Awards telecast on Univision November 11 from the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas. A.C.T Lighting is a distributor of Clay Paky lighting in North America.

The Alpha Beam 1500 is the most powerful luminaire among fully-automated ACL fixtures. It generates a solid, super-concentrated parallel beam for very long-throw projections that can be shaped and animated with built-in tools for fantastic mid-air effects. With its new Fast-Fit 1500W lamp, the fixture can also become a spotlight for long-distance, focused projections and perform as a narrow-angle washlight.

“We used eight Alpha Beam 1500s on the show,” reports Atomic Lighting’s Brett Puwalski. “The lighting designer, Carlos Colina, had heard about them and was interested in checking them out. He used them as replacements for Xenon searchlights to throw beams at the audience half-way up the arena’s seating section. They worked great!”

The Clay Paky Alpha Beam 1500s were hailed for their bright beam and color mixing and effects capabilities. “They’re really bright for the size of the fixture,” Puwalski says. “They deliver a lot of bang for the buck. Xenon’s are huge and use a lot of power, but the Clay Paky puts out the same beam in a much smaller and quicker package.”

The Alpha Beam 1500 is known for its extremely high luminous efficiency and eco-friendly package that makes it favored over much larger and more expensive searchlights. Its pan and tilt movements are extraordinarily wide, fast and linear. The fixture features a CMY color system and color wheel, eight static and six rotating gobos and one prism for changing the graphic effects and beam angle, plus a linear frost effect on a dedicated channel.

“The Clay Pakys looked very nice on the show. Carlos was very happy with them and looks forward to using the Alpha Beam 1500s again in the future,” Puwalski says.
