Chauvet Looks Awesome at NAMM

January 19, 2009 by Mobile Beat

Anaheim, CA — CHAUVET® continues its commitment to the DJ and Band & Stage markets by introducing a number of new fixtures, four of which are LED retrofits of time-honored favorites.

The 4BARTMis a pack-and-go must have for DJs, bands and other performers who want a complete LED wash light system. This 15-channel DMX system includes a foot switch, adjustable tripod, packing bag and transport case. Each of the four low-profile lights can be positioned independently. With 108 red, green and blue LEDs per light, the 4BAR offers built-in automated and sound activated programs accessible by the foot switch.

The Double DerbyTM X is a new LED version of the Double DerbyTM, which means no heat or the need for duty cycles. The Double DerbyTM X comes with a light-weight case, but keeps the most popular features of rotating, crisscrossing beams that are now sound programmable.

KintaTM X is a step up from the Double DerbyTM X with more lenses and thus more beams of light. The halogen lamp of the Kinta has been replaced with LED for a more efficient and brighter effect.

The LED MushroomTM is an updated LED version of the classic DJ fixture that comes in a lightweight housing. These first three fixtures can be linked as they all share X bracket compatibility so the units can be mounted in an array form, and they master-slave with each other.

The LED Pinspot’s compact size and light weight – less than one pound — will make this a DJ favorite. But it is not lacking in output. In fact, its single white LED is as narrow as or narrower than the traditional Pinspot, plus the LED beams have a higher color temperature and produce whiter beams.

The brand new IntimidatorTM Spot 150 and 250 are an expansion of the IntimidatorTM line. These new moving head units house 150- and 250-watt discharge lamps respectively. These fixtures keep the features that make this line a best seller – master/slave capability, sound activated programs, a variety of gobos and user-definable pan and tilt.
