Seeing Double With American DJ
American DJ has announced the release of the Double Phase LED, a unit which was developed especially to give DJs the range and power to cover a large area of any venue with a rainbow of bright, animated LED lighting effects.
The dual barrel mirrored effect is powered by two CREE 10-watt quad colour LEDs that create thick, twin beams of light in a variety of colour combinations. Each of the two high-output LED sources actually has four different colour LEDs (Red, Green, Blue and White) inside it. All of the colour mixing is done within each LED lamp prior to output, which allows the unit to produce a wider spectrum of colours.
The dual barrel mirrors magnify and amplify the beams so it can easily cover any venue in need of a professional-calibre light show. The unit also comes equipped with an LED strobe effect that adds pulsating flashes of colour as well as 0-100% dimming, 150° beam angle and built-in programs to give users an exciting lighting show.
“The Double Phase LED takes the intensity and excitement that club owners, working bands and mobile entertainers demand from a barrel mirror lighting effect, and multiplies it by a factor of two,” said Dirk Kast, General Manager for American DJ Europe. “With a pair of high-quality CREE Quad Colour LEDs as its light source, this technologically advanced unit is capable of delivering the most striking colour combinations you’ve ever laid eyes on. Plus, in the American DJ tradition, it’s very affordable, user-friendly and easy to operate right out of the box.”
The Double Phase LED offers numerous advantages that make it ideal for users of all levels of lighting experience. It can be operated in three different modes: Sound-Active, Master-Slave, or DMX-512 (6 channels controlling dimmer/strobe, colour, roller speed and rotation). When in Sound-Active or Master/Slave modes, it runs as a simple plug-n-play effect, moving to its own internal programs. In addition to full DMX control, the unit is also compatible with American DJ’s easy-to-use UC3 controller (sold separately), which can be used to turn the unit on/off and navigate through the various settings. Up to nine Double Phase LED units can be linked together via the unit’s IEC AC in/out connectors, to cover spaces and venues of all sizes.
The unit also features other additions to make it easier for users, including a four-button DMX LED display located on the rear panel. The unit also comes with a hanging bracket and safety hook for worry-free mounting and is designed for easy portability measuring 478 x 194 x 134mm and weighing only 4.5kgs.
The American DJ Double Phase LED is available now priced at approximately £189.
