American DJ’s Dekker LED Energizes The Dance Floor

With RGBW Beams Radiating From 40 Lenses

LOS ANGELES – Discos and clubs will be decked out in dazzling excitement when they turn on the Dekker LED from American DJ. A high-energy DMX-512 LED effect, the Dekker LED projects red, green, blue and white beams from a massive grid of lenses that runs 5 high and 8 wide – for a total of 40 lenses in all!

Containing two powerful 5-watt RGBW LEDs, the Dekker LED’s brilliant output and large matrix of lenses allow for a variety of bright color effects and an action-packed light show that covers a wide area of the dance floor. Yet this easy-to-use effect is also very compact and lightweight, making it great for DJs and entertainers on the go.

The Dekker LED’s combination of eye-popping visual energy and mobile-friendliness is no accident, says Scott Davies, General Manager of the American DJ Group of Companies. The effect was modeled after another legendary DJ/club light:

American DJ’s world-famous Aggressor.

“You can think of the Dekker LED kind of like an Aggressor on steroids,” commented Davies. “It has the same basic grid-like design and similar appearance, but it’s got many more lenses, and upgraded professional features like DMX control. And, of course, it’s powered by LEDs, which make it extremely cool-running, energy-efficient and virtually maintenance-free.”

The fact that the Dekker LED goes beyond the typical red-blue-green LED mix to include white LEDs as well, makes for even greater excitement. Set against white LED beams, the other colors appear bolder and richer with a rainbow-like aura. Plus, when blended with the other colors, the white LEDs allow for the creation of softer pastel hues.

High-energy built-in programs, a pulsating strobe effect and 0-100% electronic dimming add to the Dekker LED’s breathtaking excitement. What’s more, users can choose between fast and slow dance programs, giving the Dekker LED the versatility to accommodate a whole night’s worth of music.

The Dekker LED can run all night without interruption, too, because its cool operating temperature eliminates the need for the on/off duty cycles that are mandatory with heat-generating halogen effects. Additionally, its long-life LEDs last much longer than halogen lamps, with a rating of 50,000 hours. Another big advantage of LED technology is energy savings; despite its high-energy performance, the Dekker LED consumes only 25 watts of power at maximum use.

To accommodate users of different levels, the Dekker LED can be operated in four different modes: DMX, Sound Active, Master/Slave or Manual. When using a DMX controller, users can further choose between 2-channel or 8-channel modes, the first giving control over programs and other basic functions, and the second adding RGBW color-mixing capabilities. An adjustable sound-active sensitivity dial allows users to set varying degrees of responsiveness to music when in Sound Active Mode. The Dekker LED can also be operated remotely with American DJ’s optional UC3 remote controller (sold separately).

The unit includes In/Out IEC power connections to daisy-chain power. It features multi-voltage operation: AC 100V-240V 47/63Hz. Compact and portable, its dimensions are 11”L x 10”W x 10.25”H/280 x 251 x 260mm, and it weighs 9 lbs./4 kg.

The MSRP of the Dekker LED is $219.95.
