Product Description

KARIF is a versatile new fixture in the LT (Long Throw) series, adding to the AYRTON product offering for long-distance applications.

This is a machine with phenomenal powers capable of delivering stunning visual effects. An ultra-compact 300 W beam-spot luminaire equipped with a 168 mm frontal lens, KARIF offers an astronomical zoom ratio of 17:1 and a zoom range of 2.8° to 47°. To achieve an ultra-intense beam with an LED source, AYRTON uses an entirely new miniaturised high-efficiency low-etendue compact LED module. Calibrated at 8000 K, it can generate powerful metallic white light and deep, vivid colours suitable for this type of application. KARIF provides overall output of 14,000 lumens at a colour temperature of 7000 K. In this first hybrid LED luminaire, AYRTON has added continuous rotation to its panoramic movement to expand the possibilities for creating complex special effects.

KARIF offers full-featured standard equipment including a CMY colour mixing system and a multi-position colour wheel with a variable CTO, four colour-temperature correction filters, and nine complementary colour filters on two concentric circles (patent pending). The effect section includes one wheel with nine interchangeable rotating HD glass gobos. For KARIF-LT to reproduce multiple images, AYRTON has developed a totally new wheel of fixed multi-position gobos with instant access to 19 HD glass gobos and 20 metal gobos on three concentric circles (patent pending). KARIF is also equipped with a bi-directional continuous dynamic effects wheel. The prism effect system comprising four individually combinable prisms, coupled with 48 fixed and rotating gobos and an ultra-intense beam, can create unusual and spectacular kaleidoscopic effects.
