Claypaky Xtylos, the first Beam fixture with RGB Laser sources

Claypaky Xtylos

Presented at Prolight+Sound 2019, where it was very well received by lighting designers (it was like a honey pot in the middle of a bunch of hungry bear cubs), the Xtylos heralds itself as a revolution in the world of motorized Beam fixtures.
An evolution of the Sharpy, it is based on a brand new technology using three RGB LASER sources. Let's have a look at this unit!

A trade show is not always the most appropriate place to assess the quality of a beam, so we asked to borrow this innovative fixture to test it at the Impact Evénement studios, but also at night in Dimatec's parking lot, alongside the Sharpy, of course, and the Sharpy Plus.
We also asked our colleague Jean-Pierre Landragin, a laser specialist, to provide more details on the source technology on board (see the box at the end of this article).
