Hepikos is an innovative Clay Paky washlight, which encloses all the most advanced optical, mechanical and electronic technology, characteristic of the most professional moving lights, in its highly compact body. The light is built around a new, extremely bright 700 W Osram lamp, and has a 5-40° zoom which provides a bright, uniform wash effect at maximum beam angle.
The color production system includes a CMY color mixing consisting of three wheels entirely devoted to producing single colors, as well as two color wheels, each with 8 filters carefully selected by Clay Paky's R&D department on the basis of suggestions received from lighting designers. Strict quality control on incoming materials assures near-zero tolerance rates on variations in the standard colors.
Hepikos is also an advanced multi-purpose light: thanks to its 185 mm diameter plano-convex front lens and its narrow 5° beam angle, it can produce a sharp, full-bodied beam, which may be used for striking aerial effects with saturated colors.
Some devices have been specially designed for this product: a mechanical iris, which is able to alter the beam diameter in beam mode as desired to create columns of light of different sizes, right down to a pencil beam;
A four-faced interchangeable rotating prism which modulates the visual effects by breaking the light up into several dynamic projections;
A soft-edge frost filter which makes the edge of the projected light less sharp and produces the wash effect typical of a washlight with Fresnel lens.
Hepikos is ultimately a hybrid beam/wash light, where both functions are optimized, rather than one weakening the other. It is perfect for complementing the beam/spot effects produced by the Mythos, with which it shares the same chassis and the same 7800K lamp color temperature.
You will love the Hepikos for its great performance, versatile optical unit, abundance of colors, compact size and low operating power consumption in comparison to competing products with similar characteristics. It is a must-have unit for rental companies which already stock and appreciate the Mythos!
