ADJ’s New Inno Beam LED Offers Power and Versatility
Displaying its ability to innovate in the area of LED lighting technology, ADJ’s Inno Beam LED is an extremely powerful and highly versatile new moving head fixture which takes high-power/low-consumption lighting to the next level. This high-output mover is powered by a bright white 80W LED source and utilises a tight 6-degree beam angle and eight colours, plus white, to deliver an extensive range of mid-air beam effects. The Inno Beam LED’s versatility comes from the palate of options available to lighting designers, such as its beam reducers, frost filter (for wash effects) and 8-facet prism.
Even if users are limited on power, as mobile entertainers sometimes are, the 80W LED consumes little energy while still providing far-reaching powerful beams, so the fixture is ideal for use in a wider lightshow. This low power draw of 129W (max) – which is considerably less than comparable discharge lamp powered beam moving heads – also makes the Inno Beam LED great for use in productions or events, with the unit being affordable to run as part of an extensive lightshow used in a long-running stage production. The LED light-source is also environmentally friendly and cost-saving, as it should never need to be replaced due to its 50,000 hour life expectancy.
Further awesome effects can be achieved by using the 8-facet prism, which creates hypnotic aerial effects and a spectrum of dazzling colour when enhanced by the independent colour wheel. Using the laser cut GOBO wheel, with four GOBO patterns and four Beam Reducers, users can vary the size of the beam, allowing for far-reaching effects and, using a tighter angle, precise beams perfect for pin-spotting. This makes the fixture highly versatile; ideal both for tours, clubs and for mobile entertainers working weddings and other private parties. With separate colour and GOBO wheels, users have a choice of colours for any occasion; whether it’s a wedding, a party, or a corporate event – and GOBOs allow for unique patterns to further enhance the user’s lightshow. GOBO shake and scroll effects offer further possibilities, making the Inno Beam LED a versatile, as well as powerful, lighting fixture.
Thanks to the Pan/Tilt Inversion mode, users can achieve a professional-looking lightshow which will be synchronized and symmetrical even when using Inno Color Beams in sound-active mode, resulting in eye-catching effects and an experience of pure lighting excitement for their audiences. This feature is ideal for mobile DJs that need an effective lightshow with which to impress their audience but don’t want the hassle or complexities of programming and running a DMX show.
For a wider wash effect users can broaden the variable beam angle and apply the internal frost filter for a dispersed, far-reaching wash. Strobing and pulsing can also add a unique extra dimension of performance-enhancing effects. Adaptable to any situation, the flexible Inno Beam LED offers users a choice of three operational modes: DMX Controlled, Sound Active and Internal Show. For users who want total control over the fixture and its features, two DMX channel modes are available. In 12-channel mode, users have control over 540-degree pan and 210-degree tilt, including movement speed; a choice of colours, including split colour and rainbow effects; a selection of GOBOs and GOBO shake effects; prism effect and rotation settings; 0-100% dimming; frost filter; shutter speed, for pulsing and strobing; and a choice of five dimmer modes (Standard, Stage, TV, Architectural and Theatre). The two extra channels on the 14-channel mode give users further 16-bit fine control over pan and tilt – offering precise positioning and increased control. For users wishing to avoid DMX-addressing, the Inno Beam LED comes with four built-in shows, offering pre-programmed lightshows with which users can ‘wow’ their audiences. For basic control over these pre-set shows, the Inno Beam LED is compatible with American DJ’s UC3 Series easy-to-use controllers, which are sold as an optional add-on, so users can simply plug in and get started straight away.
“For ADJ’s latest unique moving head fixture, the Inno Beam LED, we’ve used a highly powerful white 80W LED source; offering lower power consumption than a discharge beam moving head but retaining the power and brightness that our fixtures are known for,” says Alfred Gonzales, national sales manager for ADJ USA. “With a range of colours, four GOBOs, four beam reducers, a frost filter and an 8-facet prism, users can now create incredible colour effects as well as use the fixture to achieve far-reaching washes or concise, powerful beams. Offering great value, the Inno Beam LED is a solid investment for any user’s lightshow; we’re proud to have created such a versatile product.”
The Inno Beam LED is lightweight and small in size, making it easy to set-up and store in transit as part of a portable lightshow, but also works well included in a venue installation due to its powerful wash and beam effects. No matter how the fixture is used, IEC AC in/outs allow users to daisy chain power, linking up to six Inno Beam LEDs at 230V – meaning its unique effects can easily be amplified by adding multiple fixtures to any lightshow.
The Inno Beam LED is available now from ADJ USA and ADJ Europe.
