Let it snow - in Orange County
USA - ADJ is preparing to showcase a variety of entertainment lighting fixtures, LED video solutions, and atmospheric effect generators at the IAAPA Expo (Booth #475), an event for professionals from the attractions industry. The company’s booth will feature a variety of products suitable for the attractions industry, including both regular and IP65-rated automated luminaires, static lighting solutions, LED video panels and a high-output professional snow machine.
IAAPA is the Global Association for the Attractions Industry and its annual Expo attracts thousands of visitors from across the United States and around the world. Hosted in Orlando, FL - the undisputed theme park capital of the world - the event attracts professionals from the full gamut of attraction-based businesses, including amusement and theme parks, hotels and resorts, water parks, family entertainment centres, museums and science centres, zoos and aquariums, and cruise lines.
The show floor features everything from rollercoaster manufacturers to food and beverage suppliers, making it a one-stop shop destination for owners, managers, and designers of themed attractions. This is a growth market for ADJ; many attractions around the world currently utilise ADJ lighting, video, and atmospheric effects equipment for everything from illuminating stage show productions to adding immersive effects to rides and themed areas.
Taking pride of place on ADJ’s IAAPA 2023 booth will be the Focus Spot 7Z, a feature-packed moving head lighting fixture launched earlier this year. Powered by a potent 420W white light LED engine, which has a native colour temperature of 8,000K, the unit’s high-quality optics ensure a crisp and even output of up to 20,000lm. Loaded with beam-shaping tools, this versatile automated luminaire provides lighting and attraction designers with almost unlimited creative potential.
For outdoor applications, the Hydro Spot 2 will also be on display. Part of ADJ’s extensive Hydro Series of IP65-rated ‘weatherproof’ automated luminaires, this potent spot fixture incorporates an efficient 320W cool white LED engine, focused through precision-engineered optics, to deliver a crisp and punchy output.
Another outdoor-ready, IP65-rated fixture set to be showcased at IAAPA is the recently released Encore LP12Z IP. Offering ‘the ultimate utility lighting fixture, this unit sets a new benchmark for LED PAR can versatility’.
Also on display will be ADJ’s Encore Profile Pro Color, a professional ellipsoidal fixture powered by a 250W RGBWAL LED engine with a CRI > 90. Through independent dimming control of the red, green, blue, white, amber and lime LED elements, this fixture can be used to generate a huge gamut of colours ranging from vibrant primaries to subtle hues.
In addition to lighting fixtures, ADJ also offers a range of LED video panel options. At IAAPA 2023, the VS3IP will be showcased, an IP-rated panel which features a 150 x 150 matrix of 3-in-1 SMD1921 LEDs, delivering a pixel pitch of 3.84mm (0.15”) for a pixel density of 67,816 per square meter.
Finally, ADJ’s product catalogue also includes a variety of atmospheric effect generators, and at IAAPA visitors will have the opportunity to witness the Entour Snow in action. This professional calibre snow generator uses water-based fluid to create a snow-like foam, which is then blown outwards in a cascade of snowflake-style droplets.
The 2023 IAAPA Expo will take place at the Orange County Convention Centre in Orlando, FL from 14-17 November.
