Ayrton Diablo Delights in Asia
Audio-visual company, Creative Technology Asia Pacific (CT), initially purchased 16 Diablo-S fixtures for its rental stock, but after experiencing the great capabilities and performance of their newly acquired Diablo-S, decided to purchase another 8 fixtures to increase the CT offering to 24 units in total.
As one of the world’s leading suppliers of specialist audio visual equipment to sports, corporate, exhibition and entertainment industries, CT had specific reasons for its choice: “Diablo is a smaller wattage fixture that is on par with other big brands, and in a shootout proved itself to give a higher return per dollar than the others,” commented the company. “It has the versatility, good build quality and ease of maintenance which is so important for a rental house. It also has a rich set of features and, with its small body and great output, is much easier for our technicians to handle, day in and day out, on the road. In terms of size versus power and functionality, what you see is definitely not what you get…in a good way!”
Ayrton was delighted to hear that Yale-NUS College, a well-respected international arts college, has also chosen Diablo-S fixtures for its Blackbox Theatre venue. This is the first time Yale-NUS has used Ayrton fixtures and Diablo was chosen following a demo from Total Solution Marketing which confirmed the fixture met Yale-NUS’s specification completely.
“Diablo’s great colour and gobo effects have proved ideal for the venue’s broad mix of dance, theatre and live music events,” comments Yale-NUS. “We found Diablo-S stood out from other brands because of its clarity, resolution and brightness. The fixtures are simple and easy to use, compact and lightweight, and we have found the shutter feature to be extremely useful in shaping the beam. Diablo really does cater for all our requirements.”
Ayrton’s versatile Diablo-S is proving one of its most popular fixtures, due in part to its many great features that include a 6.7° - 53° beam spread and 100% framing shutters. Weighing only 21.8kg, and with 300W LED source delivering an incredible 19,000 lumen output, Diablo is the smallest, lightest and most efficient LED luminaire of its type.
