CHAUVET DJ Flaunts New Products at MBLV17

January 2013

SUNRISE, Fla. – Fresh from its successful presentation at NAMM 2013, CHAUVET DJ brings the latest in LED technology to mobile entertainers at MBLV17, including new 100% wireless Freedom wash lights, the battery-operated EZ series, BEAMbar, Intimidator Spot Duo, Intimidator Spot LED 450, Core pixel-mapping fixtures, plus two mobile trussing solutions, TRUSST Arch Kit and Goal Post Kit.

CHAUVET DJ continues to lead the wireless LED revolution with the addition of four new Freedom wash lights: Freedom Strip Mini RGBA, Freedom Par RGBA, Freedom Par Quad-5 and Freedom Strip Mini Quad-5. Discreet and lightweight, they give plenty of flexibility to the entertainer on the go, with a rechargeable lithium-ion battery that runs for up to 20 continuous hours, an IRC remote for easy point-and-shoot wireless control and a built in D-Fi transceiver for wireless DMX communications. In addition to the standard black housing, Freedom Par Quad-5 is available in a white casing which makes it ideally suited for wedding venues.

Also new and cable-free are the battery-operated and highly mobile EZrail RGBA and EZpar 64 RGBA. EZrail RGBA is a linear wash light fitted with 160 RGBA LEDs and controllable in up to four sections. EZpar 64 RGBA has 180 RGBA LEDs and is available with a black or white casing to blend in to any environment. Both also come with a free IRC point-and-shoot remote controller.

The new BEAMbar joins the CHAUVET DJ line of products with a 4-degree beam angle to emit narrow, razor-sharp beams of white light for crisp visual effects. Fitted with five, 6-watt white LEDs, it includes full pixel control to easily create eye-catching sweeps, animations and runway effects. Or, to build a massive matrix, combine several units using the CBB-6 mounting bracket.

Joining the acclaimed Intimidator line, Intimidator Spot Duo combines two independently controllable moving heads on a bar that is easy to rig on a truss or mount on a tripod. This dynamic duo features independent color and gobo wheels for a variety of projections and mid-air effects. Also new to the series is the ultra-bright Intimidator Spot LED 450, with a commanding output from three white, 60-watt LEDs and remarkably sharp optics. This feature-packed moving head includes a motorized focus to project crisp, rotating gobos, a rotating, 3-facet prism to split the beam and cover even larger areas and easily interchangeable gobos for custom looks.

The new Core series, which includes Core 3×3 and Core 3×1, combines a pixel-mapping effect, blinder effect and a powerful LED wash into one fixture for the ultimate in eye candy. Powered by individually controllable tri-color (RGB) LEDs with chip-on-board technology, it utilizes a unique reflector cup to produce large pixels of light and create intriguing sweeping and chasing effects.

CHAUVET DJ offers two mobile trussing solutions to hang backdrops or rig lights and achieve a professional look in minutes. TRUSST Arch Kit and TRUSST Goal Post Kit are lightweight, non-corrosive and travel-ready trussing kits that assemble and tear down quickly, thanks to numbered sections. Custom-designed VIP Gear Bags to carry the kits on the road are also available.

The 20-by-30 foot CHAUVET DJ booth (#501) will be constructed using nearly 150 pieces of TRUSST — the rugged, easy-to-use trussing system backed by Chauvet.
