American DJ Introduces Micro Wash RGBW
Now it’s possible to splash a brilliant wash of colours in even the tiniest nooks and crannies, allowing you to light up your performance or event in places where space is at a premium. American DJ has unveiled the Micro Wash RGBW, a mini par can with a big attitude that’s powered by seven bright 1-watt LEDs (2 red, 2 green, 2 blue, and 1 white).
Although it measures just 175 x 101 x 66mm and weighs a mere 0.74 kg, there’s nothing “small” about the Micro Wash RGBW when it comes to emitting dazzlingly bright colours. This petite powerhouse produces a super-high output, along with satiny smooth RGBW mixing, to give you the kind of intense colour wash you’d expect from a much larger professional LED stage par. Plus, the Micro Wash RGBW is loaded with pro-style features and effects typically found on bigger units, such as DMX control, 32 built-in colour macros, a colour strobe, 0-100% electronic dimming, and selectable fast or slow colour change operation.
Easy to transport and pack in a vehicle, the pocket-sized par can go virtually anywhere a colour wash is desired. Featuring a 6° beam angle, it comes with a dual bracket system that allows it to be hung from overhead or set on a floor or surface, making it great for performance stages, DJ booths, table spotting and up-lighting.
“The Micro Wash RGBW is a scaled-down - but not scaled-back - version of a larger LED colour-mixing par can,” said Sebastian Mobers, Sales Manager for American DJ Europe. “It’s got all the features and amenities that you’ll find on a professional LED stage par, only it’s mini sized – and mini-priced.”
“With lighting being more widely used today in entertainment, decorative and display applications, we’re finding that there’s a growing demand for professional-style fixtures that are smaller in size than conventional units,” added Mobers. “The Micro Wash RGBW fits right into this trend. Its compact size makes it great for spaces and applications where standard par cans would be too large, yet you get a full-featured unit with a powerful output and smooth RGBW mixing, that produces a top-quality colour wash.”
The fixture can be run in six operational modes: Manual Colour, Colour Change, Colour Fade, Auto (Program Run), Sound Active, and DMX-512. Operators can further choose from six DMX modes: 1, 2, 4, 5, 7 or 8 channel. A 3-button LED display on the rear panel makes it easy to scroll through the various options and select the desired settings. Additionally, the Micro Wash RGBW can be linked in multiples via 3-pin XLR cable for master/slave operation.
