KAF is a theater and exhibition center in Almere, which opened in 2007 and was renovated and took its current name in 2016.  The complex features three performance spaces in the theater and an exhibition hall.

“We were looking for lights that would work with a wide range of theatrical performances, concerts and event rentals,” says Maarten Bolt and Menno van Houten, Light techicans at KAF.  “We did a long shootout of fixtures, and the Axcors stood out from the competition for their design, performance and attractive price.  Plus, we had used the Axcor Spot 300s once and liked them, so we opted for the new Axcor Spot 400 models.”

Part of Claypaky’s Axcor family of lighting fixtures, the Axcor Spot 400 offers medium-power applications a compact, bright LED-moving spot with exceptional projected visual effects.  It features two rotating dichroic glass gobo wheels with a total of 14 rotating gobos, an animation disc, a rotating prism, power-driven iris and 16-bit dimmer.  It also boasts highly advanced color management tools and an incredible 5.5º - 55º zoom with extremely uniform light distribution at every beam aperture.
