ADJ Introduces Quad-Colour Version of its Popular Event Bar
ADJ has released a new four-head X-Y pin-spot system, the Event Bar Q4, as part of its range of quad-colour LED powered fixtures, taking the idea of RGB one step further by adding white to the mix.
Each of the Event Bar Q4’s fixtures is powered by a powerful 10W CREE quad-colour LED and can pan and tilt independently, making for a fully-controllable lightshow. Due to its pre-programmed movements and independent control, mobile DJs will find the Event Bar Q4 gives them a dual-purpose system whose fixtures work in both static and active modes. In a static position, these four units can work independently to spotlight tables, centrepieces or décor in any colour. When movement is needed, however, the fixtures work as moving heads, adding powerful moving beams to any lightshow. This makes the system particularly suitable for mobile DJs who work weddings and other functions, where the ability to create both a subtle atmosphere – using static lighting – and a lively party feel – using the moving heads – is needed. Once the lightshow is underway, users can apply any of twelve pre-programmed shows and chase-effects to suit the needs of their audience. Alternatively, the unit is fully controllable via DMX allowing its integration into a larger synchronised lighting display.
“After the success of the white LED powered Event Bar DMX, we wanted to move to the next level providing multi-coloured beams of light from an equally compact and easy to use product,” explains Alfred Gonzales, national sales manager for ADJ USA. “With the Event Bar Q4 we’ve added RGB colour mixing to the staple white to provide complete flexibility which is still affordable. Each head is independently mobile and the system functions as both a set of static pin-spots and as part of a dynamic lightshow, meaning users will find it adaptable to many situations.”
Various operational modes allow users to easily control the fixtures, including Auto (Show Run), Sound Active, and RGBW Dimmer. For easy control, the ADJ UC3 handheld remote (sold separately) can be used to select mode, alter show speed and activate various strobe effects. The power supply for up to ten Event Bar Q4s (at 230V) can also be daisy-chained together to minimize the need for messy cables and to reduce setup times.
In terms of practicality, the Event Bar Q4 can be truss-mounted - due to its Omega bracket – while a built-in mount also allows it to be fixed directly to the top of a lighting stand (sold separately). There is also a safety loop feature at the rear for extra precaution. The fixture is flicker free and its eco-friendly LED light sources should never need to be replaced thanks to their operational life of approximately 50,000 hours. A useful 4-button LCD display makes mode selection easy, as well as DMX addressing and selection between the four different DMX channel modes: 2, 32, 33, or 37.
The Event Bar Q4 is available now from ADJ suppliers.
