Parasol Turns Heads (and Lights) with Clay Paky at LDI

parasol_4228sm.jpgParasol Advanced Systems of Vancouver, BC, Canada, was stopping traffic with its new KLRTM System (Kinetic Light Ring) during LDI 2011, October 28-30, in Orlando, Florida, at the Clay Paky booth, demonstrated with 12 Clay Paky Sharpys.

With its eye-catching display, Clay Paky won the coveted LDI Booth Award for “Most Creative Use of Light” at a ceremony on the show floor on Saturday, October 29. The award was accepted by Clay Paky Chief Commercial Officer Pio Nahum, who thanked Parasol for their involvement in making the Clay Paky booth the talk of the show.

Nahum says, “The Parasol system made a spectacular contribution to our booth, and is an ideal partner to our Sharpy spotlight. Apart from being unique on the market, the KLR system is standardized and completely market-ready. I feel sure that the Parasol system will be widely adopted and initiate an entirely new approach to designing with automated lights.”

Parasol CEO Hermann Fruhm says, “We were blown away by the response to the display at LDI. The Sharpy is the type of fixture that perfectly complements the KLR system and the results were even better than expected. We've gotten a flood of requests for information and we couldn't be happier.”

The KLR system is Parasol's second product that enables a designer to move the source point of a number of automated lighting fixtures along a pre-defined path. The KLR system is based on a patent application filed by Parasol earlier this year.

Parasol's first product is a system of independently controlled carts that can be scaled for all types of applications, ranging from small clubs (lights under 80 lbs.) all the way to large outdoor systems capable of handling payloads of over 400 lbs per Paraâ„¢Cart.

Parasol debuted its L Series cart system at the recent world premiere of the Pirates of the Caribbean 4 movie, and then again during the season finale of American Idol, both with flawless results.
