Main Light becomes one of the first in the US to acquire Ayrton Zonda 9 FX fixtures
Main Light increased its rental inventory of Ayrton lighting fixtures with the purchase of a large complement of versatile new Zonda 9 FX fixtures. The company currently has oﬃces in Delaware, Tennesse, and Las Vegas, with a fourth location in February 2023 to Teterboro, NJ. Main Light has seen a steady demand for its Ayrton Perseo, Khamsin and Diablo fixtures, which were acquired during the past two years from ACT Entertainment, the exclusive distributor of Ayrton lighting in North America.
Main Light’s acquisition of Zonda 9 FX represents one of the first investments by a US company in the luminaire. Designed for a multitude of applications, Zonda 9 FX is the first in a new family of products for stage lighting equipped with a high‐ performance 40W LED source with
RGB+W additive colour synthesis. Zonda’s LED/optical system combination can produce a powerful light output of 25,000 lumens and a homogeneous mixture of pastel and saturated colours. It serves as a powerful wash light while delivering 3D volumetric eﬀects via individual control of each LED. Its high‐ definition LiquidEﬀect creates complex 2D and 3D graphical eﬀects, which can be coupled with beam, wash or matrix applications.
“We were eager to add to our mix of Ayrton products based on the reliability of the fixtures we have and the support that ACT oﬀers,” says Randy Mullican, CEO of Main Light. “We saw Zonda at Prolight + Sound, and it filled a gap for us in large‐format LED wash fixtures, which also oﬀer tremendous pixel control and new and exciting eﬀects.
Zonda promises to be a great wash with the added bonus of eﬀects.”
Mullican expects Zonda 9 FX to attract lighting designers looking for “a bright wash with special eﬀects capabilities for entertainment and large conferences.” No sooner were the new fixtures delivered than they were dispatched to the Formula One US Grand Prix’s annual race at Austin’s Circuit of the Americas where Ed Sheeran performed his first US show in four years.
Mullican reports that Main Light intends to buy more Zonda 9 FX fixtures, and he can count on ACT “to always provide a great level of support for our purchases. ACT already provided technical support on the eﬀects side of Zonda 9 FX, including training our staﬀ so we’ll have a knowledge base of the fixture’s eﬀects tools to share with customers.”
