Curve Light with Ayrton as it Launches Kyalami

May 15, 2024

Ayrton announces the official launch of Kyalami, its first IP65-rated laser source luminaire in its Creative Solution series. Kyalami is inspired by the multiple award-winning MagicDot. First released in 2015, MagicDot sold by the thousands within months, and still inspires creativity. Nine years later it has given birth to Kyalami. Here’s a video overview of the Kyalami:

Devised for architectural graphic effects, Kyalami is an ultra-compact luminaire with incredible creative potential. Its essential performance capability is based on its unique design, extreme miniaturization, and a minimalist cylindrical footprint that allows multiple luminaires to be installed only a few centimeters apart. A sphere of just 265mm incorporates Kyalami’s 100W laser module, cooling system and optics, while its 126mm front lens positioned in the continuity of the sphere provides Kyalami with a unique visual signature.

Kyalami pushes all the limits when it comes to beam definition, with native contrast never before achieved by a digital light source. Its proprietary three-lens optical system produces an incredible, intensive 1° beam and an extreme range of focus that permits the beam shape to be adjusted according to the operating distance.

Kyalami delivers a record luminous flux of 400,000 lux at 10m from its next generation speckle-free laser source, which is designed for rendering a D65 white point that allows perfect color reproduction. A highly innovative color section includes a high-definition progressive CMY color mixing system and a multi-position instant access color wheel equipped with five corrective filters, and 17 complementary color filters.

Kyalami has unrivalled graphics capability, offering a wide choice of 29 fixed metal gobos designed to sculpt light in “beam” mode. These gobos can be blended with two individually combinable rotating prisms allowing the production of a multitude of volumetric lighting effects. A light and heavy frost filter complete the graphic tool palette.

Kyalami adopts a minimalist style due to simplified waterproofing and the continuous rotation of the pan and tilt movement, increasing the possibilities for generating complex effects and making this luminaire a universal tool capable of meeting any challenge in all conditions.

Its dimensions measure just 10.43” x 16.929”x 10.43” (265 x 430 x 265 mm) (l x h x d) and weighs in at 31.967 lbs. (14.5kg). A creative, elegant, original, lightweight, and fast luminaire, conceived and designed to be unlike any other, Kyalami will disrupt the codes and unleash the emotions.
