CHAUVET DJ To Showcase Advanced Wireless USB Series Fixtures And More At BPM
With final preparations for 2015’s BPM show underway, CHAUVET DJ is gearing up to showcase some of its latest and most exciting products to an expected crowd of 10,000 DJs and budding musicians.
Held this year from 12-14 September at the NEC, Birmingham, BPM has become one of the world’s premier DJ expos. This year CHAUVET DJ will celebrate its 25th anniversary in style by showcasing six new products: the D-Fi USB series, the Intimidator Trio, the SWARM 4 FX and the COREpar 40, 80 and UV USB series.
“BPM is an extremely important show for CHAUVET DJ as it allows us to interact directly with our customers,” said CHAUVET General Manager for Europe, Michael Brooksbank. “With DJs and entertainers looking to add a new dimension to their lightshow – whether uplighting a room with changing colours or creating eye candy aerial beam effects – the CHAUVET DJ stand will cater for all needs.”
Like the rest of the CHAUVET DJ team, Brooksbank is very excited to showcase the company’s latest offerings at BPM 2015. Chief among these new products is CHAUVET DJ’s D-Fi USB Series of lighting fixtures. This is a series of fixtures that include a standard USB connection. DJs and other end-users can wirelessly connect to these fixtures using CHAUVET DJ’s new D-Fi USB transceiver, which eliminates the need for any DMX cables. The USB transceiver is powered directly from the fixture.
Ranging from low-profile LED pars and COB (Chip-on-Board) colour washes, to a gobo projector, LED strobe and simulated water effect – all are controllable with a revolutionary thumb-drive-sized D-Fi USB transceiver, the D-Fi USB. When plugged into the USB port on a compatible USB Series lighting fixture, the tiny D-Fi USB gives users total wireless DMX control of the unit from a CHAUVET DJ FlareCON Air or any other D-Fi compatible transmitter. What’s more, in addition to transferring DMX signals, the D-Fi USB can be used to provide completely wireless Master-Slave operation.
The Intimidator Trio builds on the pedigree of CHAUVET DJ’s much revered Intimidator series. The Trio’s innovative, LED-powered moving head features beam, wash and effects in one affordable package. The fixture’s motorized zoom allows seamless change from a narrow beam to a wide wash, in addition to continuously-rotating honey comb effects.
Also new at the show will be the Swarm 4 FX, a 3-in-1 LED effect light that combines red and green lasers, white strobe effects and RGBAW rotating derby effects into one fixture. The fixture is capable of shaping the look of any event by creating customized looks and effects with separate colour and programme control. The Swarm 4 FX is also capable of creating a synchronised light show by power linking to multiple units.
Another new series of products, the COREpar 40 USB, COREpar 80 USB and COREpar UV USB feature COB (Chip-on-Board) RGB LEDs and offer both 40-watt and 80-watt par-style models for unsurpassed colour mixing. Additionally, the fixtures are equipped with a magnetic Fresnel lens that provides the flexibility to shift from ultra-wide to narrow beam in seconds. Multiple control options include DMX, master/slave and sound activation modes, as well as wireless control thanks to CHAUVET’s D-Fi USB compatibility.
“We’re very enthused about our new products and we look forward to showing them,” said Brooksbank. “It should be a very busy show for CHAUVET DJ.”
