CHAUVET DJ Unveils Collection Of “Firsts” At DJ Expo

August 2017

Atlantic City – DJ Expo 2017 will witness quite a few firsts for CHAUVET DJ. Visitors to the company’s booth (517) in Atlantic City August 15-17 will get a look at its first ever LED video wall, the Vivid 4. This year will also mark the first time that the company shows the groundbreaking SoundSwitch light control hardware/software package at DJ Expo.

Adding to the excitement, CHAUVET DJ will be introducing the newest member of its popular Intimidator series, the Intimidator Beam 355 IRC, a 100W LED moving beam. On top of that, there will be product giveaways, an informative Jeremy Brech seminar and great show floor deals from iDJNow.

Highlighting the product introductions at DJ Expo will be the Vivid 4, a modular video panel that vividly displays content without the need for bulky media servers. Users can create dazzling video displays with these lightweight video panels that feature black body LEDs that accurately reproduce high-contrast videos. Vivid 4 makes a perfect DJ façade and seamlessly integrates with Serato for displaying music videos to generate added gig excitement. Setup is easy and fast with multiple magnets and positioning pins that make getting up and running tool-free and effortless.

Also debuting is the Vivid Drive 23N, a video driver with numerous input/output options for any Novastar video panel. Its built-in video scaler allows video content to be resized quickly and easily.  The Vivid Drive 23N has an onboard digital display that easily sets all settings including transitions, content, scale, aspect ratio, PiP and more. DJ Expo visitors can enjoy dazzling demos of the Vivid 4 system at the CHAUVET DJ booth and on the DJ Times Square Main Stage.

Along with the Vivid 4, the latest Intimidator moving fixture will also be turning heads at DJ Expo. The Intimidator Beam 355 IRC is a powerful and feature-rich moving head beam fitted with a 100W LED. Complex looks are easy to generate using the fixed gobo wheel that includes a unique animation effect for additional dramatic looks. A rotating 3-facet prism splits the beam to cover larger areas. The motorized frost filter converts the beam to a wash. The onboard full-color display is IRC-6 compatible and features totem mode and onboard memory for storing a scene. Intimidator Beam 355 IRC has powerCON®-compatible power input/output connections for power linking.

“We’re really excited to launch these exciting products at DJ Expo this year,” said CHAUVET DJ Senior Product Manager Allan Reiss. “We know that demand for larger production elements for special events is growing and we’re proud to be able to introduce these powerful tools like the Vivid video panel system to help meet those demands.”

Knowing how to deploy these products profitably in a rapidly changing marketplace is also critically important. This is why CHAUVET DJ is sponsoring “Lighting to Energize Events and Profits” with Jeremy Brech. In this insightful and informative seminar Brech, event producer and owner of DJ Jer Lighting and Events, will share powerful lighting techniques and tools, including a SoundSwitch demo to add new dimensions of ambience, excitement and design energy to events. The seminar takes place on Tuesday, August 15th at 10:00am in Room 303.
