American DJ Launches Inno Scan LED and Inno Roll LED
Two new intelligent mirrored scanners from American DJ are amp-ing up the excitement at discos and nightclubs. The Inno Scan LED and Inno Roll LED both utilize a revolutionary super-size 50W LED source that produces brilliant colors and gobo patterns, which scan across the walls, ceiling, and dance floor in rapid, fluid X-Y motion.
These two scanners are both DMX compatible and include pro effects: eight colors plus white; six rotating gobos plus spot; a gobo shake effect; and an LED strobe and pulse effect. With separate color and gobo wheels, the Inno Scan LED and Inno Roll LED can produce a large variety of effect combinations. And because their 23.8mm (19mm viewable size) gobos are replaceable, they offer establishments and entertainers the versatility to project their own custom graphics for any occasion or event.
The difference between the two units is that the Inno Scan LED, which runs in two DMX channel modes (eight- or 11-channel), produces conventional flat beams with a nine-degree beam angle. The Inno Roll LED uses a barrel mirror to create tunnel-shaped beams with a seven-degree beam angle, and it operates on eight DMX channels.
"With the Inno Scan LED and Inno Roll LED, American DJ is continuing to forge ahead with the LED revolution," said Alfred Gonzales, national sales manager for American DJ. "The units' 50W LED source brings a new level of brightness to LED-powered, scanner-type club lighting effects. Plus, they offer all the premium features you would want in a professional scanner, packaged in a trim case size, and at a very attractive price."
Their compact size (11"L x 8.25"W x 22"H/ 274 x 208 x 555mm) and light weight (14lbs./ 6.3kg.) make the Inno Scan LED and Inno Roll LED great for everything from permanent installations in bars and nightclubs, to mobile use by DJs, bands, and entertainers on-the-go. Featuring built-in lighting programs, the scanners can be operated manually or via a DMX-512 controller, accommodating a wide range of user needs and levels of lighting experience.
The Inno Scan LED and Inno Roll LED can be run in three different modes: DMX, sound active, and master-slave. When four units are run master-slave, they feature a pan/tilt inversion mode, in which scanners one and three will sync together opposite scanners two and four, producing the look of an orchestrated light show. All units feature IEC AC in/out on the rear to daisy-chain power. Another convenient control option, the Inno Scan LED and Inno Roll LED are compatible with American DJ's UC3 series controllers (sold separately).
Additional premium features have been built into the scanners as well, such as high quality 1.8-degree stepper motors for smooth movements. The Inno Scan LED and Inno Roll LED also include a manual focusing lens, a hanging bracket with a safety hook, and a four-button user-friendly DMX menu on the rear. High on energy efficiency and low on maintenance, each unit's 50W LED lamp consumes just 103W of electricity and will run for 30,000 hours without needing replacement.
The Inno Scan LED and Inno Roll LED can each fit into an Arriba Case model AC-140, which offers a lightweight, affordable solution for transporting the units and protecting them from dust and dirt when not in use.
