Ayrton launch Ghibli and MiniPanel-FX at PLASA 2017

Ayrton will launch of exciting new products, Ghibli and MiniPanel-FX at the 40th PLASA London show where it will exhibit alongside its exclusive UK distributor, Ambersphere Solutions.


Ayrton is delighted to reveal Ghibli™, Ayrton’s first LED Spotlight. Compact, elegant and lightweight, Ghibli delivers an impressive 23,000 lumen output which makes it powerful enough for large scale arenas, and features a 7:1 zoom with a 8.5° – 57° beam spread.

An optional High CRI Mode can be implemented for situations demanding even higher quality light output.

Ghibli also features CMY colour mixing, variable CTO, and a complete effect section including two gobo wheels, a prism, an animation wheel, two frosts, and a rotating framing system that allows a full wipe, all in a most competitively priced package.


MiniPanel-FX is a fabulous new addition to Ayrton’s FX-Zoom range. Small in dimensions but mighty in output, with a zoom spread of 3.6° to 53°, MiniPanel-FX houses four of Ayrton’s unique square lenses in a neat 2 x 2 configuration to form an extremely powerful beam and wash light with immense creative possibilities.

With characteristic endless double rotation, MiniPanel-FX is the perfect tiny complement to its hugely successful siblings, MagicPanel-FX and MagicBlade-FX.

Both Ghibli and MiniPanel-FX will be ready to ship in the autumn.


Launched at Prolight+Sound 2017, Ayrton’s Merak 250W RGBW LED wash light will be making its first appearance at Olympia. This little powerhouse of technology features a proprietary 10:1 optical zoom system, with a 7° to 70° zoom and a new Fresnel lens design to ensure perfectly homogenous colour mixing regardless of beam angle. With its single-source transmitting lens, Merak™ casts wonderfully crisp light and just one shadow.

Finally, Ayrton is proud to support the Knight of Illumination Awards – itself celebrating its 10th anniversary – for the fourth year in succession. This event is a must for everyone in the lighting industry, in an evening dedicated to the creativeness of the lighting designers who put the inventiveness of fixture designers and manufacturers into practise.
