The future of LED moving head effects has never looked brighter - or smaller, or “greener”! American DJ has introduced two revolutionary new LED-powered DMX moving heads, the Vizi LED Spot and Vizi Wash LED 108, that deliver a super-brilliant high output, along with loads of professional effects and features in an amazingly compact, energy-efficient package.
A powerful spot fixture, the Vizi LED Spot utilises a massive 22W LED source (6,500°K, 50,000-hour) to project brilliant colours, gobos and prism effects onto walls, floors and stages, while consuming only 88W of electricity. A dazzling wash effect, the Vizi Wash LED 108 contains 36 3W LEDs (12 each red, green and blue), also rated at 50,000 hours, which can create a virtually infinite spectrum of colours through RGB mixing, yet it draws a mere 120W power maximum.
Not only are the Vizi LED Spot and Vizi Wash LED 108 brawny and energy-efficient, they’re also extremely small and lightweight. Each fixture weighs just 9Kg; the Vizi LED Spot is a trim 303(L) x 419 (W) x 214 (H) mm, while the Vizi Wash LED 108 measures 310 (L) x 228 (W) x 369 (H) mm. This makes the units easy to transport and set up with minimal labour, and also allows them to be installed in the tightest of spaces.
“On one hand our customers are telling us they want brighter, more powerful fixtures, while on the other, they’re looking for smaller, more efficient units that are easier to handle and will help them save money on energy and labour costs,” said Scott Davies, General Manager of the American DJ Group. “The arrival of LED-powered effects has helped to meet both of these seemingly opposite demands.
“Now with the Vizi LED Spot and Vizi Wash LED 108, American DJ is taking the LED revolution a step further,” stated Davies. “These are our smallest, most lightweight and brightest LED moving heads to date. Both are super energy efficient, and both include a long list of exciting effects and features that you’d expect to find on any top-quality professional DMX moving head.”
Vizi LED Spot – The power of its 6,500°K, 50,000-hour 22W LED, combined with 8 dichroic colours plus white (including UV) and 7 rotating interchangeable gobos (5 metal, 2 glass) – on independent colour and gobo wheels - make this a spectacular spot effect. Operating on 12 DMX channels, the Vizi LED Spot also includes a separate prism wheel with 3-facet, 5-facet and infinite prisms, as well as a gobo scroll mode, gobo indexing, gobo shake and strobe effect. With a 540° standard pan (630° optional) and 270° tilt, the Vizi LED Spot can cover large, multi-dimensional areas. It features a 14° beam angle, manual focus, 0-100% dimming, and a 27mm gobo size (22mm viewable).
Vizi Wash LED 108 – Ideal for projecting smooth, rich colour washes on walls, stages and other surfaces, the Vizi Wash LED 108’s 12 red, 12 green and 12 blue 3W LED lamps can be blended with a DMX controller to create virtually any hue imaginable. Featuring a 22° beam angle - with an optional 15° lens kit also available - its moving yoke can pan 540° (630° optional) and tilt 265°. The 12-DMX-channel unit includes 0-100% dimming and a strobe effect with up to 25 flashes per second.
Both the Vizi LED Spot and Vizi Wash LED 108 are equipped with user features that are highly demanded by today’s lighting pros, such as Remote DMX Addressing (RDMX), which allows DMX values to be set from any DMX controller, and a convenient 4-button DMX menu system. In addition to DMX control, the units can be operated in Sound Active, Stand Alone and Master/Slave modes.
