Claypaky Sharpy X Frame Multifunction Luminaire

Michael S. Eddy • Product News • January 11, 2022

Adding to the family of the award-winning Sharpy fixtures, Claypaky introduces the Sharpy X Frame multifunction luminaire. The Sharpy X Frame takes the best features of the Sharpy line and integrates a four-focal plane shutter system in a lightweight, compact fixture. The unit’s source is a 550W arc lamp that makes this fixture extremely bright and produces deep and vivid uniform colors (including a deep red). Here’s an introductory video from Claypaky:

As a completely hybrid, multifunction fixture, the Sharpy X Frame not limited as to beam effects, it can also be a spot, profile, or wash unit. This fixture replaces much larger luminaires using the longer life 550W arc lamp.

Although a small fixture by most standards, nothing is sacrificed in the Sharpy X Frame fixture’s feature set. In addition to the four-focal plane shutter system, the unit offers a rotating gobo wheel with eight rotating gobos, a static gobo wheel, four and eight-facet rotating prisms, linear frost, a color system featuring CMY, CTO, and a separated color wheel, and six beam reducers starting at 0.5°.

With a zoom range from 2° to 52°, the Sharpy X Frame can do unparalleled visual effects. The unit is fitted with a 160mm front lens and proven Claypaky optics for producing sharp images and collimated beams.
