Beefier Beam, Slimmer Price New DJ Spot LED, Rewrites The Rules

American DJ has unleashed one of its most powerful and exciting DJ/club LED effects to date. The new DJ Spot LED is a compact intelligent moving head, powered by a massive 25-watt Surface Mount Diode (SMD) LED source that blasts out gobos and colors around the room with such amazing ultra-brightness it has to be seen to be believed.

With its brawny 25 watts of LED muscle, the DJ Spot LED represents a new wave of higher-output fixtures that utilize the latest advances in LED technology. But its brighter, beefier light beam is only the beginning. This powerhouse moving head is loaded with professional features and eye-popping effects, including 7 colors + white and 11 gobos + spot on separate color and gobo wheels, providing an almost limitless range of visual possibilities. It’s got plenty of other electrifying effects too, such as a Gobo Scroll mode, Gobo Shake effect, variable speed Strobe effect, and 0-100% dimming.

Best news of all for small clubs and mobile entertainers: American DJ is offering this feature-packed, ultra-high-power 25-watt LED moving head at an affordable price that’s as much of a breakthrough as the unit’s technology. The DJ Spot LED’s street price comes in at under $500!

“American DJ is not only breaking technological barriers with our LED products, we’re smashing through price barriers too,” said Scott Davies, General Manager of the American DJ Group of Companies. “The DJ Spot LED is a prime example. Being able to offer a higher-output 25-watt LED moving head at a MAP price of $499.99 is truly a breakthrough. It’s part of American DJ’s commitment to making the newest cutting-edge lighting technologies accessible to our core group of club/DJ/mobile entertainer customers. Now even smaller lighting users can have the best and brightest in LED moving heads.”

Moving head fixtures that use an LED lamp source provide DJs and clubs with many advantages over those that have conventional lamps, noted Davies. One big advantage is a longer lamp life; the DJ Spot LED’s 25-watt LED is rated at 50,000 hours. LEDs also emit less heat than conventional lights, so they can run all night long without shutting down for duty cycles, plus they can be packed up right after the show – no cool-down period required. Additionally, LEDs offer big energy savings over conventional lamps. Despite its immense brightness, the DJ Spot LED draws only 50 watts of power.

Ideal for lighting users of all levels of experience, the DJ Spot LED can be operated in 3 different modes: DMX, Master-Slave and Sound Active. When in Sound Active Mode, it will move to exciting built-in programs as an easy-to-use, plug-n-play effect. Operators can adjust its responsiveness to the music via a Sound Sensitivity Knob. In DMX Mode, the DJ Spot LED operates on 8 channels. It features a 4-button LED Menu System on the rear panel, which makes it easy to navigate through DMX settings. The DJ Spot LED can also be operated wirelessly via American DJ’s UC3 Series remote controllers (sold separately).

Whatever operational mode is used, the DJ Spot LED will fill the dance floor or stage, floor-to-ceiling and wall-to-wall, with the most brilliant colors and images. Featuring a 17° beam angle, its moving yoke can pan a sweeping 540° and tilt 270° for maximum room coverage. High-quality stepper motors with micro stepping provide smooth, accurate movements.

The DJ Spot LED’s compact size makes it great for mobile applications where extreme brightness is desired. Easy to transport, the unit measures 15.5”L x 12”W x 15.75”H/ 390 x 300 x 400mm, and weighs 20 lbs./ 9 kg. With switchable multi-voltage operation (110V/60Hz or 230V/50Hz – IEC plug), it can go virtually anywhere.

The MAP or street price of the DJ Spot LED is a very affordable $499.99 (MSRP $699.95).
