When Vice President of Lighting Mark Fetto came on board at OSA International in 2019 to build the company’s lighting division, he saw Claypaky Mini‐B fixtures at LDI and thought the small but versatile LED moving lights would easily meet customers’ lighting needs. One of the first companies to invest in Claypaky Mini‐Bs, OSA has put its inventory of 48 fixtures to work on a diverse range of projects despite the coronavirus pandemic. OSA provides world class entertainment technology, event production and systems integration from offices in Chicago, Las Vegas, and Nashville. “The Mini‐B seemed to be the right size, the right brightness and had great zoom capabilities,” Fetto recalls. “As a wash light Mini‐B may be small in stature but it’s large in output.” Although the coronavirus pandemic slowed production for many businesses, OSA’s development of the Concertata® digital engagement platform has enabled a roster of virtual events to take place, a number of them utilizing the new Mini‐Bs. A national telecommunications company tapped the fixtures for a trio of corporate events staged live in the company’s corporate office building to light an in‐house studio and to broadcast virtually. The Mini‐Bs supported Crossfade Design’s Lighting Designer Michael Nevitt for the Loma vs. Lopez “Winner Takes All” lightweight boxing bout last November, which was televised live on ESPN from the MGM Grand Conference Center in Las Vegas. Most recently, the Mini‐Bs were utilized at Hope Church in Las Vegas for Easter Sunday services in their newly built sanctuary. OSA Lighting Designer Duke Carlisle used the fixtures to supplement the church’s general stage lighting package. Fetto believes that the Mini‐B’s versatility and power for its size will make it in demand for an array of customer applications. “It’s going to be quite a popular light for everything from corporate events and houses of worship to concert touring and broadcast,” he predicts.
