Up-ping The Excitement Of Uplighting

SUNRISE, Fla. – Uplighting is one of today’s most popular lighting looks, and it’s easy to see why. Accenting walls and surfaces with just the right color can frame the entire mood for an event and transform any venue into a special, memorable environment . . . but why stop there?

The new SlimBEAM Quad IRC from CHAUVET DJ takes uplighting up to the next level. Consisting of 3 tilting RGBA LED modules on a compact base, the versatile SlimBEAM Quad IRC can be used not only as a color accent for uplighting walls and room surfaces, but also to create unique beam effects that will put extra excitement into any event.

Ideal for DJs, emcees and event producers, the 2-in-1 SlimBEAM Quad IRC makes it easySlimBEAM_Quad to add stunning “wall art” effects that will distinguish your event from the pack, said Rick Peeples, Product Manager for CHAUVET DJ. “As a lighting company we’re always asking ourselves, ‘What’s next?’ So with uplighting having become so huge today, we felt it was time to give this trend a new, exciting twist.

“The SlimBEAM Quad IRC does just that,” added Peeples. “It goes beyond simply accenting walls and surfaces to do double duty as an effects light. You can use it as a traditional uplighting fixture and then, at any time, crank up the effects to highlight a special part of the evening, such as the introduction of a speaker, or just add some amazing-looking wall art to excite the crowd.”

Featuring a 180° tilt range, the 3-headed SlimBEAM Quad IRC can cover a large amount of wall space from a single fixture. Additionally, it can be linked in multiples Master-Slave to spread its vibrant colors and beam effects over broader areas

A virtually limitless palette of colors can be blended with the SlimBEAM Quad IRC’s 4-in-1 (red, green, blue, amber) LEDs to match the mood of any event and create dazzling effects. Each of its 3-watt LEDs projects a 15° beam angle, while the unit itself has a coverage angle of 98°, emitting an output of 343 lux at 2 meters per section.

Designed for easy operation, the SlimBEAM Quad IRC can be run manually without DMX, making it perfect for users with little or no programming knowledge. It features built-in automated programs that can be easily triggered to unleash its eye-catching effects. As another non-DMX option, the SlimBEAM Quad IRC can be operated with CHAUVET DJ’s IRC-6 infrared controller (sold separately), which provides simple wireless command of functions like program selection and color selection from distances up to 30 feet.

For those who prefer to use a DMX controller, the SlimBEAM Quad IRC offers the options of 4-, 9- or 16-channel profiles to accommodate varying degrees of programming complexity. The unit comes equipped with 3-pin XLR DMX connectors.

Featuring multi-voltage operation (100-240 VAC, 50/60 Hz), the SlimBEAM QUAD IRC can be power linked up to 18 units at 120V and 34 units at 230V, allowing users to save time running cables and extension cords when installing multiple units. With its LEDs rated at 50,000 hours, the SlimBEAM Quad IRC also offers the convenience of being maintenance-free. Compactly designed for easy transport and setup, the entire unit weighs just 5.2 pounds (2.4 kg) and measures 10.8 x 3.2 x 8.3 inches (273 x 80 x 212 mm). With no moving parts, the SlimBEAM Quad IRC is silent running, making it ideal for noise-free environments.
