ADJ Releases New Wide-Washing Ultra HEX Par 3
ADJ has expanded its Ultra range of LED fixtures with its latest product release, the Ultra HEX Par 3: an LED Par fixture that produces wide washes in a range of vibrant colours – due to a combination of three 10-watt 6-in-1 HEX LEDs and 63 built-in colour macros - offering mobile DJs a new wide-wash colour lighting solution.
The smooth colour mixing of the 6-in-1 LEDs allow mobile DJs to choose from a palette of unique, party-enhancing colour combinations and, with 63 built-in colour macros, a variety of hues can be dialed in from the unit’s 4-button digital display or via a DMX controller. With its 40-degree beam angle, the Ultra HEX Par 3 provides wide coverage which is great for washing architectural walls with colour. For a more balanced, wider wash effect, a gel frame is also provided to allow the use of an optional diffusion filter.
With its patent-pending inteligently designed DMX/power input/output connectors, the Ultra HEX Par 3 is ideal for mobile DJs who need to provide up-lighting at venues of all sizes. With LED pulse and strobe effects, mobile DJs will also find the Ultra HEX Par 3 suitable for creating a party atmosphere, and, with a range of colours to choose from, the lighting can easily be set to suit the general theme of a party, whatever the occasion. The fixture’s adaptability comes from ADJ’s use of HEX LEDs, which pack red, green, blue, amber, white and UV into one diode, allowing users to not only choose from a range of colours but to use ultraviolet light, resulting in the kind of glowing effects often needed by mobile DJs in party environments.
Control over the Ultra HEX Par 3’s range of effects is offered through a choice of five operational modes: Static Colour, Dimmer, Auto Run, Sound Active and DMX-Controlled. While in DMX-Controlled mode, users are given a choice of 6, 7, 8, 11, and 12-channel modes. The basic 6-channel mode allows control over the 0-100% dimming of RGBWA + UV. The 7-channel mode furthers this by offering 0-100% master dimmer control too, while DJs can enjoy additional control over slow-fast strobing by opting for the 8-channel mode. In 11-channel mode the further three channels offer selection of Dimming, Colour Macro, Colour Change, Colour Fade and Sound Active modes; selection of the programs for these respective modes; and control over the speed and sensitivity of these programs. Finally, the full 12-channel mode allows users the further option of remotely selecting five different Dimmer Curves. For a more simplistic control option, the Ultra HEX Par 3 is also compatible with the ADJ RFC wireless remote control as an optional add-on – great for DJs running a wireless lightshow setup.
“We feel like we’ve really struck gold with the innovative new Ultra Hex Par 3,” Alfred Gonzales, national sales manager of ADJ USA explains. “With 6-in-1 HEX LEDs and 63 built-in colour macros, users really can achieve all kinds of colours with ease – and even UV effects – making the fixture the perfect wash solution for nightclubs, houses of worship and stage productions. Being compact and lightweight, the fixture is ideal for mobile entertainers and, with a low power draw, it’s also great for anyone who requires a powerful wash solution to run over a long period of time.”
The wide wash and varying colours of the ADJ Ultra HEX Par 3 enable mobile DJs to use the fixture for a number of purposes; whether it’s part of an active dance-floor lightshow, used as up-lighting, or for providing UV effects at a party with young clientele.
