ITALY- Leading Italian lighting manufacturer Claypaky announces its commitment to ArKaos’s powerful Kling-Net protocol, which will now be embedded in its newest HY B-EYE product line.

Giovanni Zucchinali, Claypaky’s Product Portfolio Manager, explained that “as the current and future requirements of lighting and visual design are so dynamic and fast-moving, lighting designers, programmers and operators need the most flexible and creative tools at their fingertips. We see a strong trend for one of those future developments being moving heads and pixel fixtures increasingly working in conjunction with video content”.

More details from Arkaos (www.arkaos.com):

He goes on the explain that the new Claypaky HY B-EYE K25 and HY B-EYE K15 recently introduced to the market, are supplied with ArKaos Kling-Net as standard and already included in the firmware.

“This new and interesting feature greatly expands the already rich effects of the HY B-EYE range, making it an even more versatile and practical luminaire” comments ArKaos CEO Marco Hinic. “This is why, going forward, ArKaos is supporting Claypaky devices with the Kling-Net software network interface and we are all looking forward to this combination of cutting-edge technologies that will offer faster, more flexible and even more versatile products”.

Kling-Net is a revolutionary plug-and-play control protocol developed by digital media specialists ArKaos for the easy operation of LED and video devices / lightsources.

It allows the distribution of real-time video data to remote display devices – like LED fixtures or LED panels – over Ethernet, adding a degree of ‘intelligence’ with the automatic configuration and connection of display devices to a computer.

It enables the perfect time synchronization of video signals sent to multiple devices and avoids using expensive hardware and video converters to achieve this.

Using Kling-Net, a heterogenic network of display devices from different manufacturers can be created and all controlled all from one computer!

One of the many aspects of Kling-Net impressing Claypaky was the opportunity to integrate luminaires very simply into a show video design, removing the usual complications and time needed by the user/designer to create a device library containing the pixel mapping information specific to each fixture.

With Kling-Net embedded, the fixture itself provides that information.
