ADJ Introduces the Mega Go Flood Par
ADJ has announced the forthcoming release of the Mega Go Flood Par, a low-profile, wide-angle beam LED Par 38 that runs on a rechargeable lithium battery. It has been created to give DJs the freedom to create bright RGB colour washes virtually anywhere –even where there are no power connections.
Featuring a 120° beam angle and a short throw from its SMD (Surface Mount Diode) LEDs, the Mega Go Flood Par is ideal for wide, close-range wall-washing as well as the backlighting of scrim onstage. Equipped with 27 x 4.5-watt Tri-Colour (red, green, blue) SMD LEDs, it creates rich, smoothly blended colours and ultra-bright washes, with none of the distractive RGB shadows typically produced by single-colour LEDs.
The Mega Go Flood Par will also run for 4.5 hours at peak performance when fully charged. Its built-in lithium battery can then be recharged and ready to go again in 6.5 hours. “Being free from the constraints of power connectors gives you more creativity and flexibility in your lighting designs – not to mention an easier, faster set-up time – which is why our battery-powered Go Series has been such a huge success,” said Dirk Kast, General Manager for American DJ Europe. “Now, with the Mega Go Flood Par, we’ve brought the convenience of battery operation to a wide-angle, short-throw Par 38 fixture.
“But the Mega Go Flood Par is about more than cordless convenience,” added Kast. “Just because it’s battery operated doesn’t mean you have to settle for less power. Like the other members of the Go Series, its high-output, RGB colour quality and brightness rival that of much bulkier, ‘plugged-in’ fixtures.”
Offering a broad choice of DMX and manual control options, it includes 0-100% electronic dimming, LED pulse and strobe effects, fast or slow colour change operation, and 35 built-in colour macros. There are a total of five operational modes to choose from: Auto Mode; Sound Active Mode; Stand Alone Mode; Master-Slave Mode; and DMX Mode. DMX users can further select from seven different channel options (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 or 7 channels) for even greater programming flexibility.
For the ultimate in user convenience, this go-anywhere fixture can also be operated remotely, using ADJ’s ADJ RFC Wireless Remote Control. Additionally, the Mega Go Flood Par can be linked in multiples via 3-pin XLR cables and IEC AC inputs/outputs are included on the rear panel to daisy chain power for up to 30 Mega Go Flood Par units.
The Mega Go Flood Par features ADJ’s exclusive low-profile, sit-flat design, with all of its power/DMX connectors positioned on the side of the unit rather than the rear. This new, efficient design gives the par the flexibility to be positioned flat on the ground without its bracket for easy uplighting and to be inserted directly into truss as a colour toner. The unit also comes with a dual-bracket scissor yoke for hanging on truss as well as angled floor-mounting. The unit itself weighs only 1 kg, and its low-profile case measures just 202 x 15 x 92 mm.
