Adding to the family of the award-winning SHARPY fixtures, Claypaky introduces the SHARPY X FRAME multifunction luminaire. The SHARPY X FRAME takes the best features of the SHARPY line and integrates a four-focal plane shutter system in a lightweight, compact fixture. The unit’s source is the powerful 550- Watt arc lamp that makes this fixture extremely bright and produces deep and vivid uniform colors (including an unmatched deep red).
The unit boasts the flexibility to be the light you need when you need it. As a completely hybrid, multifunction fixture, the SHARPY X FRAME not limited as to beam effects, it can also be a spot, profile, or wash unit. This fixture replaces much larger luminaires using the longer life 550- Watt arc lamp.
Although a small fixture by most standards, nothing is sacrificed in the SHARPY X FRAME fixture’s feature set. In addition to the four-focal plane shutter system, the unit offers a rotating gobo wheel with eight rotating gobos, a static gobo wheel, four and eight-facet rotating prisms, linear frost, a color system featuring CMY, CTO and a separated color wheel, and six beam reducers starting at 0.5°.
With a zoom range from 3° to 52° (spot mode) and 2° to 29° (beam mode), the SHARPY X FRAME can do unparalleled visual effects. The unit is fitted with a 160mm front lens and proven Claypaky optics for producing sharp images and collimated beams.
The SHARPY X FRAME is the most versatile, compact hybrid fixture on the market that addresses the needs for a bright spot, aerial effects unit, framing fixture and everything in between in an affordable, compact package.
Thanks to the continuous success that Sharpy X Frame is showing internationally and across many market segments, a new version has been introduced: the SHARPY X FRAME FD. Equipped with minor, yet worthy, solutions suitable for broadcasting application, Sharpy X Frame FD has immediately found appreciation from TV Lighting Designers. It features a brilliant and lighter magenta color filter (with a different color gamut delivering “camera-friendly” tonalities), and a light frost filter allowing soft-edge effect on gobos and framing blades.
