ADJ is preparing to use NAMM 2022 to reunite with customers and demonstrate a variety of new lighting fixtures that have either been recently launched or will begin to ship over the summer. The company will also be the official sponsor of the outdoor Arena Plaza stage, which will showcase live performances throughout the show lit by ADJ IP65-rated fixtures and amplified by a sound system from sister company, Avante Audio.
ADJ can be found at the heart of the show floor on booth #11233, where the team will be waiting to reunite in person with customers both old and new. The booth will also showcase a variety of recently released and soon to begin shipping professional lighting products, including moving head luminaires, static washes, and multifunctional strobe/blinder/wash LED-powered fixtures.
Having supplied lighting equipment to the Arena Plaza stage for the past couple of years, ADJ is stepping up its involvement by becoming the official naming sponsor of the stage. Located in the outdoor area between the Anaheim Convention Center Arena and North Hall, the ADJ Arena Plaza stage will showcase a program of live music performances running throughout the three days of NAMM. It will feature a lighting rig composed of ADJ IP65-rated Hydro Series moving head luminaires, which are specifically designed for use on temporary outdoor stages.
ADJ’s sister company, Avante Audio, will provide the sound equipment for the stage, demonstrating the impressive capabilities of its IMPERIO ‘mini’ line array system. There will also be an Avante Audio tent in the Arena Plaza area where NAMM attendees will be able to pick up fun swag.
Sure to be of particular interest to visitors to the ADJ booth will be four new additions to ADJ’s popular Hydro series of IP65-rated moving heads. Sitting proudly at the top of the expanded range, the HYDRO PROFILE combines an immense 660W LED engine that produces 25,000 Lumens, with an expansive feature set to offer a professional lighting powerhouse. Its beam can be precisely manipulated using a four-blade rotatable framing system, while other key features include a CMY colour mixing system combined with a variable CTO flag, a six-slot replaceable colour wheel, two GOBO wheels, two rotating prisms, and an animation wheel, as well as motorised zoom (six to 45 degrees), focus and iris.
Offering a compact and budget-friendly IP65-rated spot solution, the HYDRO SPOT 1 features a potent 200-Watt cool white LED and delivers punchy output which can be manipulated using an extensive collection of beam-shaping tools. These include motorised zoom (for a beam angle of 11° to 22°), motorised focus, two frost filters, two rotating prisms, six rotating and replaceable GOBOs, and two colour wheels.
The larger HYDRO SPOT 2 model is powered by a potent 320-Watt cool white LED engine. It offers an impressive 15,000 Lumen output while featuring a wide variety of beam-shaping tools, including an animation wheel, motorised zoom (for a beam angle of 8° to 41°) and focus, two frost filters, CMY colour mixing along with a variable CTO flag and independent colour wheel, two GOBO wheels and two rotating prisms.
Finally, the new HYDRO BEAM X12 is designed to create stunning aerial effects, both inside and outdoors, combining lightning-fast movement with the power of the latest Philips Platinum 12R LL MSD Discharge Lamp technology. The light from this extremely efficient source is focused through high quality optics to create a piercing output with a tight two degree beam angle.
Alongside the already shipping ENCORE LP18IP, ENCORE LP12IP, ENCORE LP7IP and ENCORE LP5IP LED par fixtures, NAMM will showcase three new additions to ADJ’s IP65-rated Encore Lime Par series of wash fixtures utilizing high output 4-in-1 colour mixing LEDs that each include individually controllable red, green, blue and lime elements.
On all the fixtures in this range, the inclusion of the lime LED primary colour boosts both CRI and perceived brightness as well as filling in gaps in the colour spectrum. Each LED is rated at 20-Watts and in addition to a huge gamut of colours is capable of delivering white light with colour temperature varying between 2700K and 7000K.
The new ENCORE LP32IP is a multifunction fixture, designed to be used interchangeably as a wash, strobe or blinder, which features 32 LEDs arranged in a four by eight matrix and divided into eight independently controllable zones. The complementary ENCORE LB15IP is a linear fixture featuring 15 LEDs, which can each be controlled independently. Finally, the ENCORE Z7LP is a par fixture which combines seven LEDs with a motorised zoom function offering a variable beam angle of between five and 50-degrees.
In addition to these brand-new products, ADJ’s booth at NAMM will also showcase a variety of recently released fixtures that are already shipping. These will include ADJ’s FOCUS PROFILE fully-featured and LED-powered moving head framing profile and the VIZI BEAM 12RX dedicated beam moving head. Also on display will be the new JOLT PANEL FX and JOLT BAR FX multifunctional wash / strobe / blinder fixtures, which each feature a central strip of 5W cool white SMD LEDs surrounded on both sides by arrays of 0.3W RGB SMD LEDs arranged into multiple independently controlled zones.
Finally, the ENCORE FR PRO COLOR, which is the latest addition to ADJ’s range of professional stage lighting fixtures, will also be showcased. It combines a 7” Fresnel lens, motorised zoom, and a potent 400-Watt LED light engine to deliver enhanced colour mixing potential and a CRI in excess of 94.
“Two and a half years since the last show, myself and the rest of the ADJ sales team are extremely excited to return to NAMM in June,” commented ADJ USA National Sales Manager, Alfred Gonzales. “We have a whole host of exciting new products to showcase, both from our booth and the ADJ Arena Plaza stage outside. However, more importantly we’re looking forward to reconnecting in person with the many customers and industry friends that we haven’t seen since 2020. If you’re visiting the show, please be sure to drop by the booth, we can’t wait to reunite with you in person!”
