Gain High ‘Vizi-Bility’ With ADJ’s New Moving Head
ADJ has introduced one of its most sophisticated moving head fixtures to date: the Vizi Beam Hybrid 2R. A visually striking, razor-sharp beam effect with a tight 4° beam angle, the lightweight, energy-efficient fixture is designed for mobile DJs who want to add the visual excitement of intense-beam effects to their lighting designs.
Going beyond sharp, brilliant beams, this versatile fixture offers a host of other professional features and effects, including a Frost Filter that allows it to do double-duty as a wash effect – thus, the ‘hybrid’ in its name! It also includes 14 colours, including UV filter, white, and CTO and CTB colour correction; 8 fixed gobo patterns plus spot; gobo scroll mode; an 8-facet prism; pulse effect; random strobe from slow to fast; and 0–100% dimming. The gobo wheel and colour wheel are independent of each other, so both can be used at the same time and gobos and colours can easily be changed on the fly.
Part of ADJ’s popular Vizi Series of intelligent fixtures, the Vizi Beam Hybrid 2R is powered by the eco-friendly Philips MSD Platinum 2R—a revolutionary 100-watt light source that boasts an output comparable to a 250-watt discharge lamp. The incredibly bright Vizi Beam Hybrid 2R not only consumes significantly less power, but is much faster than previous ADJ moving heads because it is lighter in weight and more compact than other fixtures in its class. It’s low-maintenance, too: the unit’s Philips MSD Platinum 2R lamp has an estimated life of 10,000 hours.
“ADJ is committed to creating innovative new products that benefit our customers in multiple ways, like the Vizi Beam Hybrid 2R” said Dirk Kast, General Manager for ADJ Europe. “This incredible fixture does more than just create brilliant effects that intensify your lighting presentation—it also operates more efficiently, works much faster and costs far less than other moving heads in its class. Like the rest of our Vizi Series of intelligent fixtures, it’s a winner on every level.”
The Vizi Beam Hybrid 2R is fully DMX compatible, with 16 channels that can be controlled from any DMX-512 console. A built-in 4-button LED menu display on the unit makes it extremely easy to navigate all the DMX settings. Users who are unfamiliar with DMX programming can operate the Vizi Beam Hybrid 2R in Sound Active and Master/Slave modes using the unit’s built-in programs, which create their own amazing lightshows at the touch of a button.
Other pro features on the Vizi Beam Hybrid 2R, include auto X–Y positioning, 540°/630° pan and 8-bit 270° tilt (with 16-bit fine pan/tilt control) and stepper motors with micro stepping. The Vizi Beam Hybrid 2R is extremely cool-running, so it can operate all night long without duty cycles and consumes just 210 watts of power at maximum use. The unit is easy to transport, measuring 225 x 310 x 420mm and weighing just 8kgs.
