Clay Paky is Major Player on X Factor Kazakhstan


An impressive range of Clay Paky fixtures, including the Alpha Spot QWO 800s, Sharpys, A.Leda Wash K10 and K20s, and Alpha Profile 800 STs are lighting up the world famous TV show phenomenon - X Factor - as it debuts in Kazakhstan.

Lighting designer Andrey Kuznetsov is utlising 16 Alpha Spot QWO 800s, 32 Sharpys, 8 A.Leda K10s, 8 A.Leda K20s, 16 Alpha Profile 800s and 2 Shadow QS-LTs to create a winning combination for the launch of Kazakh X Factor, which follows a similar format to the UK show.


“I was impressed by Alpha Profile 800 - the Profile System is unbelievable, it made it very easy to make designs and to highlight the set and the performers,” says Kuznetsov. “To have so many functions and capabilities in a single compact fixture is truly amazing. A.Leda impressed me with the wide range of fantastic colours it can deliver. They are fast, super bright light with great all round functionality. The excellent colour rendering of the CTO and colour mixing system also allowed me to use these LED Fixtures as a very effective front light – I am truly impressed.”
