|CP Color is a series of new Clay Paky colour changers designed as
versatile tools for lighting designers in a wide range of settings
including stage and set designs as well as architectural and
furnishing elements. The CP Color models adopt a CMY system to create
any colour tone, by superimposing filters in very pure dichroic glass
and have a uniform mechanical dimmer from 0 to 100%, to gradually dim
the light beam. Both functions can be set automatically for stand
alone operation by choosing from a range of predetermined values, or
controlled using the DMX 512 signal. The "automatic" functions are
used for inserting fixed colours, selecting the sequence type and
setting the speed. For instance, the colour can be created in a linear
form with adjustable speed, intervals ranging from two seconds to ten
The CP Color models can be installed on the floor or on the ceiling and work in any position. All models have a range of optional diffuser filters that can all be combined. These can diffuse the light beam in an angle from 10° to 80°, creating a mix of shades which can be suited to specific requirements. An ovalizer filter adds another distinctive element to the projection.
