The new Comscan LED System from American DJ puts the power of a complete light show of scanning colours and gobos right in the hands of DJs and mobile entertainers – literally. The light-weight, compact and easy-to-use LED lighting system contains everything DJs need to create a roomful of high-energy visual effects in one compact package: two Comscan LED DMX scanners, one universal UC3 handheld remote controller, and the required DMX cable for linking the units together.
Driven by an advanced high-performance LED source, each Comscan LED scanner projects eight dazzling colour/gobo combinations that scan across a venue in wide, sweeping, X-Y mirror movements. Featuring a 13° beam angle, the units can pan up to 166° and tilt up to 54°. Adding to the excitement are a variety of built-in lighting programs, a Gobo Shake effect, a Strobe effect and 0-100% dimming capabilities.
“The Comscan LED is the ultimate system for any mobile entertainer who wants the high-energy movement and professional look of a DMX scanner light show,” said Dirk Kast, General Manager for American DJ Europe. “You get great value – two scanners, a remote controller and cable – for one very affordable price. Plus, the system is perfect for taking on the road, because it’s so compact and lightweight. And our easy-to-use UC3 controller makes it simple for anyone to put on an amazing, professional-looking light show.”
In addition to being operated with the UC3 controller, the Comscan LED scanners are DMX compatible and can be used with any DMX-512 protocol controller, such as American DJ’s LED Operator or MyDMX software. Operating on 5 DMX channels, the scanner has a convenient 4-button menu system with LED display on the back, which makes it easy to navigate through DMX settings. The Comscan LED System can also be operated in Sound Active and Master-Slave modes. When four units are linked together Master-Slave, the system features a Pan/Tilt Inversion Mode, in which scanners 1 and 3 will sync together in the opposite direction of scanners 2 and 4.
The Comscan LED System features state-of-the-art 1.8° stepper motors with microstepping for smooth, fluid movements. The system includes a manual focusing lens and comes with a convenient hanging bracket with a safety hook for easy mounting. Compact and lightweight, each unit measures 344 x 160 x 200 mm and weighs 3.6 kg. The scanners’ long-life LEDs are rated at 30,000 hours, so there’s no need for frequent lamp replacements. The LED source is also very energy efficient; each scanner only draws a maximum 30W of power.
