American DJ Introduces Event Bar DMX
Compact and ultra-convenient, the new Event Bar DMX from ADJ is likely to prove popular with many Mobile DJs. This all-in-one LED scanning light system features four bright white 3W LED pinspots on individual X-Y scanning arms all mounted on a single pre-wired bar.
A great “turnkey” lighting system for mobile entertainers, the Event Bar DMX is easy to set up and operate. It is also a very versatile lighting tool that can handle everything from illuminating a large dance floor, to table or cake spotting for that big wedding day or corporate event.
Wherever it’s used, the Event Bar DMX will provide impressive high-impact lighting. Featuring full DMX control, each of its four heads operates independently of the others and has its own strobe effect and 0-100% dimming capabilities, giving users the ability to create just the right mood and effects for any application. With a pan angle of 360° and tilt of 270°, this four-headed scanning system also provides broad, sweeping coverage with its brilliant white beams, so it’s ideal for illuminating spaces large and small. The lamps come with a standard 12° beam angle, but as an added option a 6° beam angle is also included.
Featuring both DMX and manual control, the Event Bar DMX provides a number of operating options that will appeal to novices and lighting pros alike. It can run in four different modes: DMX-512, Stand Alone, Sound Activated or Master-Slave. When in DMX Mode, it utilizes up to 25 channels and operates just like a moving head in that users can control the pan and tilt on each individual head independently.
The Event Bar DMX also features a number of exciting built-in programs that will amaze any audience when run in Sound Active Mode or when accessed as macros via DMX. Regardless of which mode you choose, the programs will run silky smooth and at an unbelievably fast rate, thanks to the unit’s eight high-quality motors. A bright, user-friendly display makes it easy to navigate through DMX settings and access the internal programs.
Equipped with 3-pin XLR connectors and 4-piece daisy chain power connect, the Event Bar DMX is also the perfect fixture to run in multiples to create a very unique programmed light show at a fraction of the cost of using individual high-power scanners. Or to look at it another way, you can buy four Event Bar DMX systems for about the same price as four traditional moving heads and get a similar look (albeit with only white beams) – only you get sixteen heads instead of four!
A perfect tool for those on the go, the Event Bar DMX is a metre long and weighs less than 8 Kgs, so it can be easily transported and will take up very little space in a vehicle. It can be mounted either on a tripod stand or on truss with a clamp, giving lighting users plenty of setup options.
