American DJ have unleashed one of their most powerful and exciting DJ/club LED effects to date. The new DJ Spot LED is a compact intelligent moving head, powered by a massive 25-watt Surface Mount Diode (SMD) LED source that ADJ promise will be available at a very affordable price.
With its brawny 25 watts of LED muscle, the DJ Spot LED represents the beginning of a new wave of higher-output fixtures that utilize the latest advances in LED technology. But its brighter, beefier, light beam is only part of what the DJ Spot LED has to offer. This powerhouse moving head is loaded with professional features, including 7 colours + white and 11 gobos + spot. These are mounted on separate colour and gobo wheels, providing an almost limitless range of visual possibilities. It’s got plenty of other effects too, such as a Gobo Scroll mode, Gobo Shake effect, variable speed Strobe effect, and 0-100% dimming.
“American DJ is not only breaking technological barriers with our LED products, we’re smashing through price barriers too,” said Dirk Kast, General Manager for American DJ Europe. “The DJ Spot LED is a prime example. It’s part of American DJ’s commitment to making the newest cutting-edge lighting technologies accessible to our core group of club/DJ/mobile entertainer customers. Now even smaller lighting users can have the best and brightest in LED moving heads.”
Moving head fixtures that use an LED lamp source provide DJs with many advantages over those that have conventional lamps, noted Kast. One big advantage is a longer lamp life; the DJ Spot LED’s 25-watt LED is rated at 50,000 hours. LEDs also emit less heat than conventional lights, so they can run all night long without shutting down for duty cycles, plus they can be packed up right after the show – no cool-down period required. Additionally, LEDs offer big energy savings over conventional lamps. Despite its immense brightness, the DJ Spot LED draws only 50 watts of power in total. This means that a massive lighting show featuring 12 moving heads or more could be powered from just a single socket shared with a PA system!
Ideal for lighting users of all levels of experience, the DJ Spot LED can be operated in three different modes: DMX, Master-Slave and Sound Active. When in Sound Active Mode, it will move to exciting built-in programs as an easy-to-use, plug-n-play effect. Operators can also adjust its responsiveness to the music via a Sound Sensitivity Knob. In DMX Mode, the DJ Spot LED operates on eight control channels. It features a 4-button LED Menu System on the rear panel, which makes it easy to navigate through DMX settings. The DJ Spot LED can also be operated wirelessly via American DJ’s UC3 Series remote controllers (sold separately).
Whatever operational mode is used, the DJ Spot LED will fill the dance floor or stage, floor-to-ceiling and wall-to-wall, with the most brilliant colours and images. Featuring a 17° beam angle, its moving yoke can pan a sweeping 540° and tilt 270° for maximum room coverage, while high-quality stepper motors with micro stepping provide smooth, accurate, movements.
The DJ Spot LED’s compact size makes it great for mobile applications where extreme brightness is desired. Easy to transport, the unit measures 390mm (L) x 300mm (W) x 400mm (H) and weighs a very manageable 9 kg.
