French lighting manufacturer Ayrton has appointed Elation Professional as the exclusive US distributor for its groundbreaking Easy Color moving head LED fixture. Elation, a member of the American DJ group of companies, introduced the Easy Color to the U.S. market at the 2003 LDI show.

“We are pleased and honored to enter into a distribution agreement with Ayrton," said Scott Davies, general manager of the American DJ group of companies. “With their top-quality products and commitment to innovation, we could not ask for a better partner than Ayrton in a marketing venture. We are also very excited about the Easy Color and the new lighting applications and markets it will open. As a moving-head LED, it is truly the first fixture of its kind.”

Easy Color combines moving-head technology with a Light Emitting Diode. It is designed for use in architectural, commercial, and retail applications, as well as film and video.

“The Easy Color brings the excitement of moving head effects to a whole new market of end-users--such as architectural installations, interior designers, stores, ad agencies and video producers,” said Davies. “This fixture is a real breakthrough product, and it will create huge new marketing opportunities for special effects lighting.”

In addition to its unique combination of a moving head and LED, the Easy Color offers a number of other features that make it well suited for architectural, commercial and production use. The fixture includes RGB color mixing, which gives users 16.7 million color possibilities, as well as advanced electronic dimming.
