Chauvet DJ Launches New Products at NAMM 2016 – Pt 1

January 21, 2016 by Mobile Beat

Sunrise, Florida – In August of 2015, CHAUVET DJ debuted its cutting edge D-Fi USB technology, giving lighting users the ability to convert its new USB-enabled fixtures into wireless ones with the click of a self-powered D-Fi USB transceiver no bigger than a conventional flash drive. Now CHAUVET DJ will unveil a host of new USB compatible lighting products and several other exciting new fixtures at the 2016 NAMM Show at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, California January 21st-24th. Among the new offerings are eight new USB fixtures, the new completely wireless Freedom Stick Pack, two new Intimidator moving head lights and a powerful new Ellipsoidal fixture.

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.  In addition to transferring DMX signals, the D-Fi USB can be used to provide completely wireless Master-Slave operation.  Users simply set the finger-sized device into Transmitter Mode on the lead fixture, and the unit will act as the “Master,” controlling like models equipped with a D-Fi USB. Since the D-Fi USB draws its power from the fixtures themselves, no external power supply is required.

“We’re excited to continue advancing our wireless technology with the introduction of these new pNAMM 2015roducts at NAMM” said CHAUVET DJ Senior Product Manager Allan Reiss. “The new USB compatible fixtures we’re launching at NAMM along with all our other new products are designed to make the jobs of lighting users of all kinds easier, more powerful and more profitable and we look forward to getting these tools in their hands at NAMM”.

The popular 4BAR , already a favorite among entertainers looking for a dynamic and easy pack-n-go lighting system gets an upgrade with the new 4BAR USB. Users can easily set-up and tear down in minutes using the included tripod, wireless footswitch and carry bags and D-Fi USB compatibility for wireless master/slave or DMX control means even more flexibility and convenience.

SlimBANK T18 USB is a powerful washlight with D-Fi USB compatibility and 18 tri-color (RGB) LEDs to achieve smooth color mixing. Its adjustable barn doors help direct and focus the
light. Convenient control options include auto and sound-activation programs as well as DMX.
