Clay Paky Sharpy

 

Sharpy is a 189W moving beam light with an unprecedented brightness usually achievable only with far greater wattages. Weighing just 16 kg, Sharpy produces a perfectly parallel, laser-like beam with an incredible output of 59,760 lx at 20m (5,100 footcandles at 65 ft). Sharpy is also groundbreaking for the purity of its beam, which is sharply defined and free of any halo or discoloration around the edges. It offers 14 different colors and 17 gobos, allowing you to change the shape of the beam and create an array of spectacular mid-air effects. With its light weight and modest footprint, Sharpy is small enough to be fitted anywhere – on trusses at live and TV events, on stage, in showrooms or conference rooms.

Sharpy is also available in a shiny mirror-finish chrome version, adding glamour to sets while making lights a less invasive presence.

 

Reviews

“We never thought we'd see a 190W light that we could use in Wembley Arena.”
2010 PLASA Jury

“This is the type of output normally seen with Xenon fixtures, not sub-200W lamps that could pass as carry-on luggage.”
Patrick Dierson, Live Design, February 2011
