A New Dynasty in DJ Effects
American DJ has come out with two new compact high-performance scanners; the Dynasty Ray and Dynasty Scan DMX. The Dynasty Scan offers DMX compatibility for fast and accurate user control on the fly. The Dynasty Ray is a sound-active plug-and-play unit that grooves on its own to built-in programs.
"We came out with two models of our new Dynasty series scanner - one for DMX users, and one for entertainers who prefer the ease of plug-and-play effects," said Scott Davies, general manager of the American DJ Group of Companies. "We wanted to make this new high-tech, optically superior scanner accessible to all types of users."
Because the Dynasty Ray and Dynasty Scan DMX both offer a brighter output than the typical 150W fixture, they can be used in situations that would normally require a 250-watter, allowing users to save on energy costs, the company says. Both models also feature a high-tech compact design and are extremely portable, making them ideal for mobile DJs on the go.
The Dynasty Ray features a unique "Arc"-style mirror that produces eight separate sharp beams and creates nine color/gobo combinations. The sound-active fixture will run its own internal programs all night thanks to a high-velocity fan that helps keep it cool and prevents dangerous overheating. Audio sensitivity adjustment on the Dynasty Ray is as easy as turning a single knob.
Other professional features of the Dynasty Ray include fast X/Y mirror movement and a full-focusing lens. It comes with a long-life Philips ZB-EFR 15V 150W lamp. Compact and highly portable, the Dynasty Ray measures 18.25" x 7.25" x 7.5" and weighs only seven lbs.
With the intelligent Dynasty Scan DMX, DJs can apply different colors to different gobos, because they're on separate DMX channels. The six-channel fixture offers nine gobos plus spot and eleven colors plus white, for a variety of creative overlay options. It also comes with its own internal programs for use in sound-active mode, and multiple units are linkable in master/slave operation via XLR cables. Lightning-fast X/Y mirror movement, a full-focusing lens and easy four-button digital DMX addressing make the Dynasty Scan DMX all the more appealing to professional mobile DJs who like to be in control.
Identical in size and shape to its Dynasty Series brother "Ray," the Dynasty Scan DMX also measures 18.25" x 7.25" x 7.5" and weighs only seven lbs. It includes a 15V, 150W AC120 long-life Philips light bulb.
