SUNRISE, Fla. – Chauvet, a leading manufacturer of LED lighting, introduced new and soon-to-be-released products during LDI 2012. All four Chauvet brands were shown including CHAUVET DJ, CHAUVET Professional, TRUSST and Iluminarc. During the show, CHAUVET DJ showcased TRUSST — a trussing system built with the highest standards of safety — and introduced new and soon-to-be-released gear designed for mobile performers and club installations.
To best showcase the new line of TRUSST and the latest gear, the CHAUVET DJ booth was constructed using 122 pieces of TRUSST. CHAUVET DJ Intimidator Beam LED 350 joined the Intimidator series with a concentrated, 4-degree beam to project aerial and long-throw effects. CHAUVET DJ Freedom Par Quad-5 and CHAUVET DJ Freedom Strip Mini Quad-5 joined the wireless Freedom series with 25-watts of quad-color LEDs. Additionally, CHAUVET DJ Scorpion 3D RGB and CHAUVET DJ Scorpion Burst GB joined the Scorpion series of lasers with new effects to enhance any show. For the ultimate in atmospheric effects, CHAUVET DJ Nimbus and CHAUVET DJ Geyser RGB proved to be showstoppers.
Attendees crowded in the CHAUVET DJ booth to see Intimidator Beam LED 350 in action. Fitted with a 75-watt LED, it projects a tight, concentrated beam, while a motorized frost filter converts the beam into a wash light. The feature-packed moving head features a fixed gobo wheel, animations and three-sided prism to easily generate complex looks and cover larger areas.
Powered by a rechargeable lithium-ion battery, Freedom Quad-5 series includes both a PAR-style uplight and strip light fitted with 25-watts of quad-color (RGBA) LEDs. Both fixtures include the proven D-Fi 2.4 GHz wireless DMX system and are fully linkable with CHAUVET DJ COLORstrip and the Freedom™ series.
An innovative 3D laser, Scorpion™ 3D RGB features red, green and blue laser diodes that mix together to project never-before-seen animated 3D patterns. Scorpion Burst GB features high-speed motors that generate up to 24 different effects that scan and burst to enhance any gig.
Nimbus and Geyser RGB proved to be two of the most popular fixtures at this year’s show. Crowds flocked to the booth as Nimbus flooded the show floor with thick, low-lying clouds. To increase mobility, CHAUVET DJ introduced the Nimbus Cart which allows you to easily relocate Nimbus during your event. Geyser RGB made a bold statement as it generated an illuminated CO2 cannon type of effect. It is an effect light and fogger in one unit that blasts a vertical stream of safe, water-based fog while simultaneously illuminating it with 21 high-power, three-watt RGB LEDs.
