Never Stop TRI-ing!
American DJ have announced the release of their new Mega TRIPAR Profile, a compact colour-mixing LED par can that features the exclusive “sit-flat” design of the company’s Mega Par Profile, but has been upgraded with Tri-Colour LEDs for superior RGB colour blending. The versalite fixture is ideal for uplighting, dance-floor washing and many other mobile entertainment applications.
The Mega TRIPAR Profile’s Tri-Colour technology is housed in a low-profile sit-flat case identical to that of the original Mega Par Profile. Because the power and DMX connectors have been positioned on the side of the fixture, rather than the rear, the Mega TRIPAR Profile can sit directly on the ground or inside truss without its hanging bracket. This design makes the Mega TRIPAR Profile ideal for uplighting, architectural wall washing and truss toning, as well as general stage and party lighting.
Featuring a 40° beam angle, the Mega TRIPAR Profile includes 32 built-in Colour Macros, Colour Strobing and 0-100% Electronic Dimming. It can be operated in 5 different modes: DMX-512, Sound Active, Auto, Static Colour, or RGB (colour blending). When used with a DMX controller, operators can choose from 7 different channel modes for a variety of programming options: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, or 7-channel. A digital display with 4-button menu on the rear of the unit provides easy access to DMX settings.
The Mega TRIPAR Profile can be run as a Stand-Alone unit or in Master-Slave configuration to give synchronized coverage over a wider area. It also features IEC AC input and output on the side of the fixture for daisy chaining up to 33 units.
As another control option, the Mega TRIPAR Profile can be operated with American DJ’s LED RC wireless infrared remote controller (sold separately). The easy-to-use LED RC allows for remote control of the Mega TRIPAR Profile’s basic functions from distances up to 30 ft. / 10M.
The versatile unit comes with a Scissor Yoke hanging bracket that allows it to be hung on truss, mounted on a wall or set on the ground – or you can remove the bracket entirely to give the fixture its unique “sit-flat” positioning. Weighing just 1.2kg and measuring a compact 225 x 220 x 85mm, the Mega TRIPAR Profile is great for mobile use.
