Burbank-based Volt Lites, Inc. has taken delivery of a complement of Ayrton GHIBLI and MISTRAL TC fixtures expanding its lighting roster with its first-ever Ayrton purchases. Volt Lites has also added AC Power Distribution products to its growing equipment inventory. Ayrton lights and AC Power Distribution products are exclusively distributed in North America by ACT Lighting, Inc.

Helmed by Co-founders Harrison Lippman and Matthew Shimamoto, Volt Lites is a lighting production shop for the greater LA rental community and a wider national clientele.

GHIBLI is Ayrton’s first LED spot luminaire with a factory-equipped framing system. GHIBLI delivers a light output of 23,000 lumens in a highly compact format. Its proprietary optical system produces an extremely uniform fat beam with no hot spot. GHIBLI’s selection of gobos and colors was made in collaboration with lighting designers to meet the needs of the entertainment industry.

MISTRAL TC is a new versatile and fully-equipped LED spot luminaire designed for applications requiring perfect color reproduction. The ultra-compact fixture has an entirely new LED module using a monochromatic light source calibrated at 7,000K with a native color rendering index greater than 90 and extremely high TM30 readings, which enables MISTRAL to produce more than 14,000 lumens. Its optics achieve an extremely uniform flat beam that can render images perfectly in all conditions and at any beam angle.

“Both the GHIBLIs and MISTRALs are exquisite LED profiles that hit all the marks and complement each other,” says Lippman. “The Ayrton line has really impressed us, and we’re excited to get the new fixtures into our clients’ hands: Volt Lites is one of the first companies to offer MISTRALs in the US. The fact that ACT Lighting added Ayrton to their line card means we’ve been able to add Ayrton fixtures to our inventory.”

Shimamoto sees GHIBLI as “a new workhorse for our growing line of spot and profile fixtures. The GHIBLI produces bright vivid colors, has a flat, even field for key light and razor sharp optics for mid-air projection. This allows for the light to play a variety of roles. I also love how quiet they are for our more sensitive environments.”

The GHIBLI’s factory-equipped framing system is another plus, according to Lippman. “Clients have come to expect shuttering capabilities, and it’s very challenging when a fixture does not offer framing shutters.”

He finds MISTRAL to be “a superior, compact LED profile with a very similar range of functions as its big brother, the GHIBLI. I like the form factor, the output and the light quality as well as its close-to-silent operation.”

“They are the perfect solution for our clients’ needs when a small, light-weight, high-output fixture body is required,” adds Shimamoto.

Both fixtures have already been in demand by Volt customers. “The GHIBLIs are very popular for film, commercials and live television while the MISTRALs are starting to go out on all types of live events and corporate projects,” Lippman reports.

Volt Lites also took delivery of several AC Power Distribution products: SST Cam Feed-Thru 24-channels, 240v and 30-channels, 120v 19-pin units as well as SST 2x6 200A Camlock Spiders.

“We like the units’ compact and efficient size and their attractive price point,” says Lippman. Shimamoto concurs. “The AC Power Distribution products pack a big punch in a compact and efficient footprint. We love that we can customize the anodized aluminum trim to fit within our company’s brand. These units have proven themselves time and time again on tours, TV shows, commercials and events without failure.”
