Let’s Reunite at Prolight+Sound 2022: ADJ Prepares To Unveil Host Of New Lighting Products in Frankfurt

Following two years of postponement due to the worldwide pandemic, Europe’s largest exhibition for the professional lighting and audio industry is set to return this month to Frankfurt, Germany. The ADJ team is looking forward to reunite with customers and industry colleagues at the show, as well as use it to introduce a host of brand new products. On display for the very first time will be two new moving head luminaires, alongside a range of new LED-powered wash fixtures.

Expanding ADJ’s popular Hydro Series of IP65-rated moving heads, the new Hydro Beam X12 will make its debut at Prolight+Sound 2022. Designed to create stunning aerial effects, both inside and outdoors, it harnesses the power of the latest Philips® Platinum 12R LL MSD Discharge Lamp technology. The light from this extremely efficient source is focused through high quality optics to create a piercing output with a tight 2-degree beam angle. This can then be manipulated by a variety of beam-shaping tools to generate a myriad of impressive effects. These features include 14 colors + white, 16 GOBOs + open, motorized focus, two rotating prisms and a frost filter.

Also on display for the first time will be the new Focus Flex. This compact yet potent moving head offers lighting designers the creative flexibility of generating vibrant washes, punchy beams, and eye-catching pixel effects from one compact and quick automated luminaire. It features an array of seven powerful 40-Watt 4-in-1 RGBW color mixing LEDs, each of which can be controlled independently, together with a motorized zoom function which delivers a variable beam angle of between 4- and 32°.

Prolight+Sound 2022 will also see the launch of four new additions to ADJ’s Encore Lime Par series of IP65-rated LED wash fixtures utilizing high output 4-in-1 color mixing LEDs that each include individually controllable red, green, blue and lime elements. The inclusion of the lime LED primary color boosts both CRI and perceived brightness as well as filling in gaps in the color spectrum. Each LED is rated at 20-Watts and in addition to a huge gamut of colors is capable of delivering white light with color temperature varying between 2700K and 7000K. A multifunction fixture, designed to be used interchangeably as a wash, strobe or blinder, the Encore LP32 IP features 32 LEDs arranged in a 4 x 8 matrix and divided into 8 independently controllable zones. The complementary Encore LB15 IP is a linear fixture featuring 15 LEDs, which can each be controlled independently. Meanwhile, the Encore Z7 LP is par fixture which combines 7 LEDs with a motorized zoom function offering a variable beam angle of between 5 and 50°. Finally, the Encore LP5 IP is the smallest fixture in the range, packing 5 LEDs into an extremely compact par fixture.

The Ultra LB18 will be another new fixture displayed for the first time at Prolight+Sound 2022. It is a powerful and versatile linear LED wash, designed for permanent installation or temporary event use at indoor locations. It features 18 x 10-Watt 5-in-1 color mixing LEDs (red, green, blue, amber & lime) and has a beam angle of 17 x 40°. The fixture is supplied with brackets that can be used to set it directly on the ground or to attach a clamp for truss mounting and the ends are also magnetic to allow adjacent fixtures to be quickly and easily aligned.

Expanding ADJ’s popular COB Cannon series of LED-powered wide angle wash lights, the new COB Cannon LP200 ST will also be officially unveiled at the show. Featuring a high output 200-Watt COB (Chip On Board) 5-in-1 LED engine, it combines, in varying intensities, the independent red, green, blue, amber and lime LED elements that make up its light source to allow the creation of a huge spectrum of colors. A compact and versatile fixture with a high CRI, it offers a wide 80° native beam angle but is also supplied with both 40° and 50° lens options.

Finally, following the initial success of ADJ’s Encore FR Pro Color Fresnel, Prolight+Sound 2022 will see the launch of the new Encore FR Pro WW model (only available from ADJ Europe). Offering the same 7” Fresnel lens as its sister product, the new version is powered by a potent 200-Watt warm white LED engine which delivers an impressive maximum output of 13,737 lumens. ADJ’s most potent LED-powered Fresnel to date, it offers a manual zoom range of 10.8 to 32.7° and is supplied with a gel frame, while a set of Barn Doors is available as an optional extra.

In addition to these brand new products, ADJ’s booth at the show will also showcase a variety of other fixtures for the first time at a major European trade show. These will include ADJ’s Focus Profile fully-featured and LED-powered moving head framing profile and the Vizi Beam 12RX dedicated beam moving head. Also on display will be the new Jolt Panel FX and Jolt Bar FX multifunctional wash / strobe / blinder fixtures, which each feature a central strip of 5W cool white SMD LEDs surrounded on both sides by arrays of 0.3W RGB SMD LEDs arranged into multiple independently controlled zones. Completing the product line-up, expect to see the Mirage Q6 PAK flight-cased set of IP65-rated, wirelessly controllable, battery-powered LED uplighters on display.

“Following the two-year break imposed by the pandemic, we are looking forward to reuniting with industry colleagues and friends from across Europe at Prolight+Sound 2022,” comments ADJ’s European Sales Director, Sebastian Mobers. “Despite the uncertainty of the past couple of years, ADJ’s unwavering commitment to product development has not slowed down, so we are looking forward to demonstrating a variety of new fixtures for the first time at the show. However, our main focus will be reconnecting in person, with customers both old and new, and the ADJ booth has been designed with this in mind. You’ll find a comfortable space to sit down and meet with our team while also experiencing our new products firsthand.We look forward to welcoming you; it’s time to reunite!”

Prolight+Sound 2022 will take place at Messe Frankfurt, 26 thru 29 April. ADJ will be exhibiting from booth E51 in Hall 12.1, where the company’s experienced and multilingual team of sales and product specialists will be on hand to answer questions and provide one-on-one demos.
