Gobos On The Go, CHAUVET DJ Introduces EZgobo

EZ-Gobo
SUNRISE, FL – Now DJs and mobile entertainers can add the visual excitement and impact of gobos to any event even when power outlets aren’t readily accessible, thanks to the new EZgobo projector from CHAUVET DJ. Battery powered and wireless, the new LED product brings an unprecedented level of mobility to gobo projection.

“Gobos are an important part of a mobile entertainer’s show, adding an extra element of personality and fun to any performance,” said Allan Reiss, senior product manager of CHAUVET DJ. “One of the really nice things about the EZgobo is that it gives you the flexibility to use gobos anywhere. It’s compact, so it’s great for tight spaces; it’s got a magnetic base so it can be attached to most metal surfaces, plus it has a scissor clip with an eye loop for easy attachment to ceilings — and since it’s a wireless battery powered product you don’t have to worry about the availability of nearby power outlets.”

Another “nice thing” about the EZgobo is that it allows DJs to create their own removable gobos with transparency film (purchased separately) . The new mobile gobo projector also has ten built-in wedding ready gobos that are ideal for many ceremonies. Adding to the flexibility of the EZgobo is its manual zoom, which allows short or long throw applications.

The EZgobo features an IRC remote with on/off and dimming capabilities. Maximum run time on the batteries at full power is five hours, ensuring that the fixtures are capable of meeting the demands of any show. (The recharge time for the fixture is four hours.)

With a 10–watt single cool white LED light source that has a 50,000 hour life expectancy, the EZgobo delivers the durability and output expected of a high-quality DJ fixture.

Weighing only 2.2-pounds (one kilogram) and measuring just 6.5” x 4.3” x 6.7” (167 x 110 x 170 mm), the ruggedly built EZgobo is easy to transport and set up. “We designed this fixture with the mobile entertainer in mind,” said Reiss, “Our goal was to provide every DJ with an easy way to introduce gobos to any event regardless of spatial or power restrictions. The EZgobo does this very well.”

CHAUVET DJ Thursday Vids: Women in the DJ Business

The DJ business has traditionally been a male-dominated industry. Thankfully that’s changing as more and more female DJs and entertainment company owners contribute their much-needed perspective and talent to the DJ business. In this episode of CHAUVET DJ Thursday Vids, Geoff explores some thoughts on why that is. Because, as he says in this video, a business without women in it, is no business at all.
