CHAUVET Debuts Double Derby™ X with LED Technology
The Double Derby™ X may look like a classic derby effect with rotating, crisscrossing multicoloured beams, but thanks to LED technology this DJ mainstay has been transformed into a modern lighting unit. With just three high-powered 3-watt LEDs, this workhorse provides DJs with pre-programmed shows using the crisp red, green and blue beams in different combinations: green/blue, red/blue, and red/green/blue. The effect produces an astounding 132-degree wide floor coverage, enough to blanket an entire room with moving beams of coloured light.
Strobing effects are built in to the automated programs and blackout is available using a DMX controller. Thanks to a lightweight case and the use of LED technology, the Double Derby™ X is light weight at just 2.75Kg. It’s also compact, measuring 280mm x 297mm x 254mm.
As with most LED-fitted lights, the Double Derby™ X is ideal in settings where heat must be avoided, where energy consumption must be minimized and where long periods of operation are required – as the unit has no duty cycle. Multiple units can be linked together in a master/slave configuration and the Double Derby™ X can also be linked together with CHAUVET’s new Kinta™ X effect for a varied, but synchronised, lightshow.
