ADJ at Prolight + Sound

ADJ will utilise the upcoming Prolight + Sound exhibition in Frankfurt, Germany to showcase a variety of the company’s newest lighting and LED video products.

On display will be the latest additions to the company’s Vizi and Hydro Series of automated luminaires, as well as the new ElectraPix Series of battery-powered wash fixtures. The booth will also showcase the WMS2 high-resolution LED video panel and the IP-rated Jolt Series strobe/blinders, as well as the Aria X2 wireless lighting control solution.

The next in ADJ’s Vizi Series of automated luminaires, the new Vizi Beam CMY is a dedicated beam fixture. Harnessing the full potential of the 310W Osram Sirius HRI discharge lamp, paired with precision-engineered optics, it generates a 2-degree beam. Lighting Designers can unlock a spectrum of possibilities with CMY colour mixing, paired with a 14-colour dichroic wheel that includes CTO (3200K), CTB (9000k) & UV filters. In addition, the fixture offers a GOBO wheel loaded with 17 static patterns (including 4 beam reducers) and a dynamic GOBO shake effect. Users can also enjoy the on-board wireless DMX, motorised focus, 16-bit fine focus and high-speed 3-phase pan and tilt motors. The fixture’s feature set also includes two rotating prisms (16-facet circular and 6-facet linear) which may be overlayed, as well as a frost filter for creating wash effects.

The ElectraPix Series is a collection of battery-powered and wirelessly controllable LED wash fixtures. Each product in the series features the same colour-calibrated 20-Watt Hex (RGBAL+UV) LEDs. In addition, an arrangement of 0.2-Watt RGB colour mixing LEDs surrounds the main LEDs to generate a background glow effect. The ElectraPix Bar 8 is a compact 0.5-meter linear fixture that incorporates eight LEDs. The larger ElectraPix Bar 16 measures 1-meter in length and features 16 LEDs. Finally, the ElectraPix Par 7 is a complementary LED par fixture loaded with seven LEDs.

The ADJ Hydro Series is a range of IP65-rated automated luminaires that each boast rugged touring grade construction, premium components, and a feature set. A luminaire, the Hydro Hybrid is the latest new edition to the range. It harnesses the potential of a potent Osram SIRIUS HRI 420W discharge lamp, focused through precision optics, to deliver an output of up to 14,416 Lumens. Its feature set includes CMY colour mixing and an additional 12-position coloUr wheel, two GOBO wheels (one fixed static and one replaceable indexed-rotating), two rotating prisms (8-facet circular and 6-facet linear), motorised focus and motorised zoom (1.6° – 17.7°: Spot Mode; 3.1° – 39.2°: Beam Mode).

The new WMS2 is the company’s highest resolution offering to date. It features an arrangement of RGB SMD1515 colour mixing LEDs and generates a brightness of 800 NITS. Offering a pixel pitch of just 2.6mm, resulting in a pixel density of 147,456/m2. Measuring 1000mm by 500mm (39.3” by 19.9”), each panel is made up of eight individual modules of 96 by 96 pixels. This video display solution can be mounted directly to a wall, with a edge-to-edge finish, either horizontally or vertically.

The new Aria X2 wireless lighting control solution is a next generation multi-band system designed to increase the transmission range for cable free communication of a DMX signal between console and fixtures. Featuring an advanced proprietary protocol, it creates a wireless mesh that allows all Aria X2 devices within a given system to transmit the DMX signal between one another. On display at ADJ’s Prolight + Sound booth will be the Aria X2 Transceiver, which features twin wireless antennas as well as 5-pin DMX input and thru connections. An Aria X2 network can be configured from the large display screen located on the front of the transceiver or using a dedicated mobile app. In addition, the app can also be used to remotely configure compatible fixtures and provide basic DMX control.

All the new lighting fixtures on display at Prolight + Sound 2024 are equipped with Aria X2 compatible wireless transceivers as are many of the other ADJ fixtures released recently.

ADJ’s Jolt Series features a collection of potent fixtures which each combine white strobe/blinder LEDs with multi-coloured wash LEDs in the same unit.The new Jolt Bar FXIP and Jolt Panel FXIP offer the same creative potential but with touring grade casings that are IP65-rated for safe use outdoors in any weather conditions. The linear fixture features a central strip of 112 x 5-Watt cool white SMD LEDs (grouped into 16 individually controllable zones), surrounded on both sides by a total of 448 0.5-Watt RGB colour mixing SMD LEDs (in 32 zones). The panel fixture is equipped with 48 0.5-Watt cool white SMD LEDs (divided into 6 zones) alongside 800 0.5-Watt RGB SMD LEDs (in 40 zones). Both fixtures are packed with features, including wireless DMX and internal program macros, and are supplied with a frost lens.

“Prolight + Sound Frankfurt remains an important event on the industry calendar,” commented ADJ’s European Sales Director, Sebastian Mobers. “It attracts entertainment technology professionals from across Europe as well as many international visitors. With lots of exciting new products to showcase, the entire ADJ Europe team is looking forward to welcoming both new and existing customers to our booth at the show, as well as introducing our latest fixtures to lighting designers, technicians, and other entertainment technology professionals.”
