American DJ has introduced the Flash Shot DMX, a compact intelligent strobe light that uses LED technology.
For mobile DJs, bands and clubs, the Flash Shot DMX is designed to allow users to incorporate a programmable LED strobe into their light show and tailor it to suit their own individual needs.
According to American DJ, the Flash Shot DMX features 234 bright white LEDs that produce an output equal to that of a 70-watt conventional strobe — bright enough to "cut" even in the largest venues, with or without fog. We're told that this new fixture also gives users complete control over important functions like strobe speed (flashes per second) and full dimming (from 0-100%). Offering the ultimate in flexibility, it can be operated in 3 different modes: DMX, Auto Strobe and Random Strobe.
When used with a standard DMX controller (such as the Elation Show Designer or Elation DMX Operator), the Flash Shot DMX is designed to give you the freedom to create your own programs or choose to let it run to its own exciting built-in programs. The fixture hooks up to your DMX controller via a standard 3-pin XLR connector. In DMX mode, the individual traits of the 3-channel Flash Shot DMX are controllable with the flip of a dipswitch. It also can be run Sound Active while in DMX mode, with events triggered by a built-in microphone. You can also apparently set it up to function as a spotlight using DMX protocols.
Weighing 3 lbs. and measuring 7"L x 7.25"W x 7.25"H, the compact Flash Shot DMX is a portable piece of lighting gear. It is available in 120V/60Hz and 230V/50Hz versions, as line voltage can vary between different venues.
The MSRP of the Flash Shot DMX is just $179.95.
