ADJ realizes that not all lighting users want to spend big bucks in order to incorporate high-power GOBO effects into their rigs, something taken into careful consideration when designing the exceptional new Ikon Profile. Boasting a powerful LED source, easy-to-adjust framing shutters, and a textured glass GOBO, this unbelievably compact GOBO projector lets users create super-bright, adaptable GOBO effects from one portable unit, without breaking the bank.

The new projector – which was incredibly well received at the NAMM 2016 tradeshow in Anaheim, California – is fitted with a 32W white LED source that allows for a powerful beam of optimized white light and GOBO projections that are not only extra-bright, but crisp and rich too. The fixture comes with 5 GOBO patterns; 1 textured glass GOBO and 4 metal GOBOs. Custom metal or glass GOBOs may be produced to create a unique look.

ADJ’s commitment to providing lighting solutions that are not only forward-thinking and cost-effective, but highly versatile too, means users will find a number of features that make the Ikon Profile suited to a range of events and situations. For starters, the beam angle may be manually adjusted (15-40-degrees) and the GOBO swapped out, effectively allowing the projector to be turn instantly turned into a spotlight. With five dimmer curves available too, the beams can be optimized for everything from architectural applications to stage performances. As well as changing the beam angle to suit their needs, users can also manually focus the unit to ensure a vivid projection at all times.

The other key feature which makes the versatile Ikon Profile such an iconic product is its framing shutters. Being manually adjustable, they allow users to craft the light produced by the unit into any four-sided shape they want. Whether they require a square beam or a wider rectangular form, users can match the Ikon Profile’s projection to venue features or specific areas, for a sleeker, more uniform look.

Completing the Ikon Profile’s innovative range of features, ADJ has fitted the unit with a single drop-in GOBO slot (for 26.8mm GOBOs). This enables the use of metal GOBOs or glass, and users can easily interchange them to achieve different but equally as effective results. The compact new unit also makes the most of a color frame, giving users the flexibility to add color filters and color correction filters to generate powerful beam projections in a range of vivid hues.

“High-power GOBO effects can really take a lightshow to the next level, so naturally we wanted to provide that option to our customers while keeping the price at a fair point,” said Alfred Gonzales, National Sales Manager for ADJ USA. “For the forward-thinking new Ikon Profile, we’ve combined a powerful 32W LED with interchangeable GOBOs and manually adjustable beam angle/focus to offer users an exceptionally versatile GOBO projector that also doubles as a spotlight unit.”

In terms of control, the Ikon Profile provides a four-channel DMX mode (with 3-pin DMX connections) – allowing users to go in-depth and get extra imaginative with their GOBO lightshows – as well as offering compatibility with ADJ’s UC IR remote and Airstream IR App, allowing for extensive wireless control from a distance of up to 30ft. So, whether they’re working the lights from behind the bar or they’re tucked away in the booth, users have the freedom to create pure lighting excitement from any position. Using the game-changing Airstream IR App, they can even trigger these unique GOBO projections from the convenience of a handheld iOS device, for true versatility.

Weighing in at just 6 lbs. (2.7kg) and boasting compact dimensions (16 x 6 x 9in / 406 x 152 x 229mm), ADJ has ensured that the Ikon Profile can be easily incorporated into any setup, no matter how mobile it needs to be. Due to its awesome design – as a lighting effect that’s incredibly compact but extremely powerful – users can conveniently take the Ikon Profile on the road with them, making it the ideal GOBO projector for mobile entertainment. But the projector’s power and flexibility also make it the perfect solution for houses of worship, nightclubs, bars, stage productions and event retail outlets. For these bigger events, where the fixture is highly effective used in multiples, the Ikon Profile’s IEC power outlet allows the power for up to 16 units to be daisy-chained at 120V, for a widespread lightshow that really packs a punch!

Perfect for bringing powerful GOBO effects weekly church services or to a nightclub or bar during late-night events, users will have no problems running the Ikon Profile all night long without any duty cycle, thanks to its low heat output and efficient LED source. The unit also ships with an included scissor yoke, so users can easily mount it onto a wall or hang from trussing, enabling them to deliver attention-grabbing beams of bright white light from a range of angles.

Users looking for the unlimited power and flexible control required to create stunning, high-impact GOBO projections will find everything they need in the Ikon Profile. Utilizing a high-strength beam to project unique GOBO patterns onto dance-floors, walls and ceilings, this versatile, compact unit is perfect for a wide range of users. Powerful, portable but budget-conscious, the Ikon Profile gives users a sure-fire way to produce pure lighting excitement for their guests, no matter where they take it or how they choose to use it!

The Ikon Profile will be on display at ADJ’s booth (Hall 5.0, Stand B88) at Prolight + Sound in Frankfurt, Germany April 5-8, 2016.
