CHAUVET DJ Announces A Dozen New Products
Ahead of the NAMM trade show that will take place in Anaheim, California at the end of this month, CHAUVET DJ has announced details of six new lighting fixtures – all suitable for mobile DJs – that will be added to its product line-up for 2018. These include an addition to the wireless Freedom series, a versatile new version of the popular GigBAR and a powerful multi-zone wash fixture.
Visitors to the company’s NAMM booth (11133) will be treated to a first look at the new Freedom H1, a compact 100% wireless, battery-operated LED wash light with a built-in D-Fi transceiver and a single hex-colour (RGBAW+UV) 10W LED. This compact fixture can be mounted virtually anywhere: free-standing on the floor, attached to a lighting stand/truss or mounted directly to a metal surface using its magnetic base. Multiple units can be remotely controlled simultaneously via stand-alone mode, wireless DMX or IR. The Freedom H1 X4 system includes four fixtures, four diffusers, a carry bag, multi-charger and IRC-6 remote.
Another NAMM newcomer for CHAUVET DJ is the GigBAR Flex, which represents the next generation in the series designed to make mobile entertainment lighting easier and more convenient. A versatile lightshow-machine, the new product features two LED Derbys, two RGB+UV LED Quad-colour pars and four strobe LEDs. For added versatility it has a pass-through mounting hole for use with various lighting and speaker stands, as well as adjustable leg brackets that allow it to stand directly on the floor.
The new Wash FX2 will also be debuting at NAMM. This multi-purpose effect light has 18 quad-colour (RGB+UV) LEDs that can be used as a regular wash light or as an eye-candy effect with six chasing zones. An on-board dimming feature adds to its capabilities, and the unit’s powerful UV LEDs can be used to create a psychedelic black light effect in addition to delivering vibrant colour-mixing.
CHAUVET DJ will also be using NAMM to introduce three new effects lights: Line Dancer, Duo Moon and Mushroom. The Line Dancer is a compact LED fixture that projects strips of rotating multi-coloured light to create mid-air effects that blanket an entire space with eye-catching patterns. Meanwhile, the Duo Moon is a plug-and-play LED fixture that projects a fun moonflower and strobe effect. Finally, the Mushroom is a new compact, easy-to-set-up version of the classic plug-and-play effect light that generates hundreds of sharp, multi-coloured beams.
“We’re humbled and honoured by the recognition CHAUVET DJ has received at NAMM, winning ‘product of the year’ awards multiple times from MMR and Music & Sound Retailer,” said Albert Chauvet, CEO Of Chauvet. “Our team is committed to continuing this tradition of innovation. This commitment is very evident in the new fixtures we are introducing at NAMM. Like the innovations that came before them, these products were thoughtfully designed to offer new solutions to end-users, and create new selling opportunities for CHAUVET DJ dealers.”
