Clay Paky’s new Alpha Beam 1500 is a new 1,500W moving light that produces a concentrated parallel light beam with new graphics, color, and movement features. Because of a new optical group, it produces similar output and distance to luminaires of thousands of watts, according to the company. Features include an extensive effects section, 14 gobos (six rotating, eight fixed), patentpending focusing, two rotating prisms, rotating beam shaper, mechanical iris, CMY color mixing plus color wheel, dimmer plus precision dimmer on separate channels, three combinable linear frosts on dedicated channels, and stop/strobe effect.
