OSA International increases lighting rental inventory with new Ayrton Eurus and Diablo fixtures
OSA International, Inc., which delivers world‐class entertainment technology, event production and systems integration from its base in Las Vegas, has added large complements of Ayrton Eurus and Diablo lighting fixtures to its rental inventory servicing its Las Vegas and Nashville oﬃces.
ACT Entertainment is the exclusive distributor of Ayrton lighting in North America.
The purchase is the one of the first Eurus buys in the US. Mark Fetto has a long history as an early Ayrton proponent including the purchase of a compliment of Diablo units for OSA International in February of 2020.
Fetto, who is OSA International’s VP Lighting and General Manager of the Las Vegas oﬃce, was brought on board about three years ago to build the company’s new lighting division.
“We’ve steadily been growing our inventory of fixtures and, as part of that, ACT demo’d the new Eurus for us,” says Fetto. “I liked how durable the fixture looked and felt, and its output was outstanding for a 650W fixture. We were looking for new robust fixtures for our touring clients, and Eurus supported our existing inventory very well.”
Eurus S is a multi‐function profile luminaire especially designed for stage applications. It is equipped with a new 650W ultra‐compact monochromatic LED emitter calibrated at 8200K and can deliver metallic white light with an output of 36,000 lumens at a colour temperature of 6700K. Eurus includes a subtractive CMY colour mixing system combined with a variable CTO and seven‐position complementary colour wheel for displaying an infinite palette of vivid saturated colours and pastels.
OSA International also doubled the size of its large inventory of Diablo fixtures, Ayrton’s feature‐rich 300W profile luminaire based on the ultra‐compact Mistral format. “We put them on almost every corporate event we do, so we needed to stock more units,” says Fetto. “Their light weight and high output are especially important when there are weight limitations in ballrooms, and their great colour mixing and Ayrton reliability make Diablo an excellent addition to our inventory.”
He notes that Diablo fits a wide range of projects beyond corporate events, citing tours for the legendary Paul Anka, a variety of BMI music events serviced by the Nashville oﬃce, as well as lighting the basketball court for the NBA’s upcoming G League Winter Showcase in Las Vegas.
“As OSA International’s lighting division continues to grow, we will be adding more Ayrton products to our inventory,” Fetto reports. “Our ACT rep, Eric Abad, has been great about showing us new fixtures and was instrumental in obtaining more Eurus units from Europe to meet the demand from the Korn tour.”
“It's been a pleasure working with OSA and Mark on their Ayrton investments. They saw the quality and value in Ayrton fixtures‐‐and the reliability that brings. It's easy to get lost in the spec sheets, but Mark sees what a fixture brings to the table for his clients and his company, which is really all you can ask for,” concludes Eric Abad, Western Regional sales for ACT Entertainment.
