#CHAUVETDJ IS SUPERCALIFRAGILISTICEXPIALIDOCIOUS!

CHAUVET DJ IS SUPERCALIFRAGILISTICEXPIALIDOCIOUS!

A spoonful of sugar and amazing lighting are making a production of the beloved Disney musical Mary Poppins fly high. CHAUVET DJ Intimidator products are adding lighting magic to the magical show currently on stage at Pembroke Pines Theatre of the Performing Arts (PPTOPA). The theatre recently installed 4 Intimidator Spot LED 350 moving heads and four Intimidator Spot LED 150s to add to the theater’s existing lighting system in preparation for the beloved and effect-heavy musical. The company also uses CHAUVET D-Fi Hub units to be able to wirelessly control the Intimidators that are mounted high above the stage and control booth.

“Mary Poppins 1Mary Poppins is a show with a ton of effects,” says the show’s Technical Director Elliott Riches. “We knew we had to add some powerful and flexible lighting to our existing rig. The Intimidators really add some visual punch and effects to help tell this story. I’ve been a fan of the Intimidators for quite a while and they really added that magic touch we needed for this show that’s full of magic! We’re looking forward to using them on our other upcoming shows too.”

Riches mounted the Intimidator Spot LED 350s overhead along the front-of-house catwalk. The powerful and versatile 350s allow Riches to add bright effects, gobos and spots to the theatre’s existing wash lighting fixtures from this position. He uses a D-Fi Hub to communicate wireless DMX control to the first Intimidator with the others in the chain connected to it via conventional DMX cables. The smaller Intimidator Spot LED 150s are mounted above the stage just behind the proscenium and are also controlled via D-Fi Hub. The 150s are perfect for shorter throws and tighter beam effects targeted to accent various action positions from directly overhead.

Mary Poppins (4)CHAUVET DJ Senior Product Manager, Allan Reiss is happy to see the Intimidators being used in theatrical applications. “PPTOPA is a great example of a company using our fixtures for things beyond DJ and band lighting,” says Reiss. “These are bright, powerful and flexible fixtures that are great for performing arts applications of all sizes and budgets. It’s great that more and more organizations are discovering that.”

Mary Poppins runs Fridays and Saturdays at 8pm and Saturdays and Sundays at 2p through August 9th. To learn more about PPTOPA visit www.pptopa.com.

Calling All Scary DJs For The CHAUVET DJ Halloween Scream Test #ChauvetDJ

Calling All Scary DJs For The CHAUVET DJ Halloween Scream Test

The CHAUVET DJ team is looking for DJs who want to have a frightfully good time being a part of the annual Halloween video produced by the company’s marketing team. DJs who think they have what it takes to give people the creeps or scare them witless are invited to submit an appropriately ghoulish or horrifying photo or video clip of themselves to CHAUVET DJ for the company’s Halloween Scream Test contest.

Halloween ScreamThe company will select the three scariest entries to weave into the 2015 Chauvet Halloween video. Winners will receive one of three CHAUVET DJ products and will have their name included in the video credits.

“We’ve done Halloween videos for the past two years and they’ve become so popular, it’s scary,” said Geoff Short, Customer Engagement Manager of CHAUVET DJ. “Our team has enjoyed doing these videos so much, we wanted to include our customers in the fun. So we’re inviting everyone to send us a photo or a video clip of themselves that’s appropriate for a Halloween video.”

CHAUVET DJ will select three of the photos or video clips submitted and weave them into the company’s Halloween video. For example, the winning photos may show up as pictures on the wall of a haunted house, and the selected videos may be playing on a TV screen in the background while ghosts and witches plot their Halloween mischief.

“There’s no end to how we can use the photos or videos we receive,” said Short. “Our team is very creative and so are our customers, so this should be fun. We’ll select three photos and/or video clips and include them in our final production. The winners will get cool prizes and they’ll also be included in the credits at the end of the video. We’re looking forward to this contest!”

Entering the CHAUVET DJ Halloween Scream Test contest is as easy as getting candy when you’re trick-or-treating. Entrants simply have to email their photo or video to scream@chauvetdj.com and include their name, email address and phone number. The winners will receive the following prizes:
· First Prize – A CHAUVET DJ Geyser RGB
· Second Prize – A CHAUVET DJ SlimBANK UV-18
· Third Prize – A CHAUVET DJ SlimPAR Hex 3 IRC

The contest is open to all DJs anywhere in the world. Entries will be judged on originality and appropriateness for inclusion in the CHAUVET DJ Halloween video. “We’re want DJs to be creative and original, to come up with material that lends itself to being included in a video storyline, which means that it’s something that will stimulate ideas in other people,” said Short. “We urge DJs to let their imaginations run wild, but any videos that are offensive or endanger people or animals will be immediately disqualified.”

The deadline for submitting entries in the CHAUVET DJ Halloween Scream Test contest is 5pm Eastern Time Friday August 21. Winners will be announced on the CHAUVET DJ Facebook page on Tuesday August 25. The video clips submitted for consideration in the contest should be no longer than one minute in length. CHAUVET DJ reserves the right to edit or modify photos and videos submitted in this contest. For complete rules, terms and conditions visit the CHAUVET DJ website page.

As a special “treat” to all the DJs who participate in this contest, CHAUVET DJ will be posting photos and video clips of the non-winning entries on its Facebook page every day in October.

“We all have a lot of fun with our Halloween videos and we want to share it with our customers,” said Short. “We know that our customers are very creative so we’re looking forward to get some great entries in this contest. It will be our Halloween treat to see them. So send us your photos or videos!”

#ChauvetDJ Introduces Twin Compact Barrel And Scanner Effects With Bright 60W LED Source, Prism, Gobos, Optional Remote & More

Barrels (And Scanners!) Of Fun
CHAUVET DJ Introduces Twin Compact Barrel And Scanner Effects With Bright 60W LED Source, Prism, Gobos, Optional Remote & More

Good things come in small . . . . barrels. That’s what DJs, mobile entertainers and dance clubs will be saying about CHAUVET DJ’s new Intimidator Barrel 305 IRC barrel-type scanning effect and its scanner twin, the Intimidator Scan 305 IRC, which weigh just 10.4 and 10 pounds ( 4.8 and 4.6 kg) respectively, but can roll out a bushel load of punchy effects.

Each of these compact scanners produces a bright, powerful beam that can shine through any environment, thanks to their mighty 60W LED source. The beam can be split to cover larger areas, using the fixtures’ built-in 3-facet prism, just one of many standout features found on the Intimidator Barrel 305 IRC and Intimidator Scan 305 IRC. Both units are also equipped with 7 interchangeable rotating gobos (5 metal + 2 glass), plus a palette of 8 brilliant colors + white, with the ability to produce split colors. The gobos and colors can scroll continuously at varying speeds, and there’s also a variable strobe (0-35Hz) – for a non-stop thrill ride of dazzling effects.

Incorporating all these features into a professional-looking lightshow is remarkably easy too, even for those with no programming experience. That’s because both fixtures offer exciting advanced built-in movement macros and move-in-black Auto Programs, which can easily be called up manually or with CHAUVET DJ’s optional IRC-6 remote controller (sold separately) to produce a ready-made cutting-edge lightshow. With the handheld IRC-6 remote, users can trigger Auto and Sound Active modes and other basic functions wirelessly from distances up to 30 feet (9M). For those who wish to customize their show, the Intimidator Barrel 305 IRC and Intimidator Scan 305 IRC can also be programmed via DMX; both fixtures offer 3-pin XLR connectors and two DMX profile options, 7- or 11-channel.

“Scanners are one of the most exciting lighting effects because of their breathtakingly fast speed and darting movement. The Intimidator Barrel 305 IRC and Intimidator Scan 305 IRC are perfect for dance clubs or anywhere else a very intense, high-energy lightshow is desired,” said Allan Reiss, Senior Product Manager for CHAUVET DJ. “The two fixtures go beyond other compact scanners in their class, in terms of their power and brightness and the rich feature set they offer. For example, having a built-in prism effect not only adds excitement, it also gives you more options by allowing you to split the beam and cover a larger area.”

If the area or room is extremely large, multiple units (up to 4) can be linked together to create super-sized synchronized lightshows. Not only can like models be linked, but the Intimidator Barrel 305 IRC and Intimidator Scan 305 IRC will also work with each other in Master/Slave mode, providing the option of having different-shaped beams moving in sync with one another.

Intimidator Scan 305 IRC - FRONTThe Intimidator Scan 305 IRC produces a powerful 15° beam, emitting an illuminance of 9,110 lux at 2 meters, with a pan/tilt movement of 180°/90°.

Intimidator Barrel 305 IRC - FRONTThe Intimidator Barrel 305 IRC also pans 180° and is capable of continuous 360° tilt motion with a beam angle of 12° and an illuminance of 1,630 lux at 2 meters.

Both fixtures feature high-frequency LED dimming for flicker-free operation, making them ideal for video applications. The scanners can be power linked up to 5 units at 120V ad 10 units at 230V, saving the time required to run cables and extension cords. Each model will fit into CHAUVET DJ’s CHS-40 VIP Gear Bag for safe, convenient storage and transport.
