Birmingham, UK – Any DJ or entertainer who wants more freedom will love what CHAUVET DJ has in store for BPM 2014. The company will be putting the power of freedom in your hands with its game-changing FlareCON Air, a palm-sized device that transforms your smartphone or tablet into a wireless DMX lighting controller. Once you purchase this device, simply download the FlareCON app, and you can control any of CHAUVET DJ’s battery-powered Freedom Series fixtures directly from your phone or tablet — for an unprecedented level of mobility and freedom in lighting control!
Along with FlareCON Air, CHAUVET DJ will be introducing other must-see products at BPM, which runs September 13-15 at The NEC, Birmingham. Here are some highlights to look for on the company’s stand C37:
Three new models have been added to CHAUVET DJ’s battery-powered, wireless-DMX Freedom Series — Freedom Par Tri-6, Freedom Par Quad-4, Freedom Par Hex 4. An RGB, RGBA and RGBAW+UV unit respectively, these powerful LED wash fixtures combine intense output with smooth colour-blending. True to their name, they can be set up virtually anywhere — no cords or cables required. Taking wireless freedom a leap further, these new models, as well as the original Freedom fixtures, are compatible with the FlareCON Air interface, allowing users to control them via a smartphone or tablet.
CHAUVET DJ continues its wireless revolution with the EZpin IRC, a battery-powered pin spot with optional remote control. The new LED product makes it easier than ever to pin spot centrepieces or any other focal point at any venue without worrying about power draw or the availability of electric outlets. Compact yet ruggedly built, the EZpin IRC is extremely versatile and can be positioned in a variety of places. DJs and other end-users can create different looks with the EZpin to fit the mood of different occasions by using a variety of gels. Aside from being an attractive starter pin-spotting package, the value-driven kit also provides a cost-efficient way for mobile entertainers to build their existing lighting rigs with a go-anywhere, do-anything pin spotting solution.
The Intimidator Spot 355Z IRC is a brilliantly bright moving-head light with motorised focus and zoom for crisp gobo and beam changing effects. Seven already installed gobos plus the wedding 6-pack give you plenty of options for creating a unique look for every event. Master/Slave mode lets you create a beautiful light show quickly and easily. Built-in automatic programs along with move-in-black capability make programming with a CHAUVET® DMX controller as easy as can be.
The Intimidator Wave IRC is a magnificent moving light array with 5 independently controlled heads that project narrow, razor-sharp beams of lights. Each moving head has a bright quad-colour LED for infinite colour-mixing capabilities. The Intimidator Wave IRC can be operated with the control panel, or the optional CHAUVET® IRC-6 remote control. Up to 4 Intimidator Wave IRC lights can be linked together as one to create stunning coordinated effects.
