adjThe Vizi Beam 12RX offers ‘improved brightness, extended lamp life and an expanded feature set’
USA - The new ADJ Vizi Beam 12RX joins ADJ’s popular Vizi Series of professional moving head luminaires as its new flagship beam model. The fixture is designed ‘to generate piercing mid-air effects for concert stages, dance events and large-scale nightclubs’.
Beam fixtures based on the popular Philips Platinum 5R lamp, such as ADJ’s Vizi Beam 5RX, have been staples of most concert, festival and superclub lighting rigs for the past decade. Now, the ADJ Vizi Beam 12RX ups the ante with a fixture that is not only noticeably brighter (while still maintaining a relatively low power draw) but also packs in an enhanced feature set to give lighting designers unprecedented creative potential, says the company.
The Vizi Beam 12RX harneses the power of a 260W Philips Platinum 12R LL lamp, which features an innovative reflector design to generate an extremely high-intensity beam. This is coupled with precision-engineered optics and a large glass front lens to allow the fixture to generate an exceptionally potent and sharp beam. It outputs approximately 9,400 lumens (compared to around 8,000 lumens for a 5R fixture) and measures approximately 70,200 lux at 20 metres [65.6 ft] (compared to around 58,000 lux for a 5R model).
In practice, this makes for a visibly brighter and more intense beam. In addition, the lamp has an extended lifespan of up to 6,000 hours (increased from 2,000 - 3,000 for the 5R) which significantly reduces the cost and inconvenience of lamp replacements.
“The Vizi Beam 12RX is a next generation beam fixture that offers improved brightness, extended lamp life and an expanded feature set,” comments ADJ USA’s national sales manager, Alfred Gonzales. “It produces stunningly bright and extremely sharp beams that I know lighting designers are going to love. The 24-facet circular prism can be used to create gorgeous mid-air vortex visual effects, while the combination of a frost filter and CTB / CTO filters mean that color-corrected washes can also be generated from this beam moving head, making it a truly versatile lighting tool.”
The unit itself has a robust construction and has been designed for a life on the road. With two large handles built in to its base, the fixture is easy to lift, carry and rig. It is fitted with large rubber feet, to allow it to stand directly on a stage or riser, and is also supplied with a pair of Omega brackets for rigging to truss or lighting rails.
A large full color LCD display, with four corresponding selection buttons, is located on the front of the unit’s base. This provides easy and intuitive access to a menu-driven interface that facilitates mode selection, DMX addressing and configuration of the fixture’s various operational attributes. It offers a choice of two DMX modes (14 or 16 channel) and supports the RDM protocol which allows remote DMX addressing and trouble shooting from an RDM-equipped lighting console.
