LDI Set to Light Up Orlando: DJ-Related Debuts Expected
Orlando, Fla.—Much of the entertainment lighting world will visit the Orange County Convention Center for the LDI Show this weekend. With exhibitions running Oct. 28-30, LDI expects to see lots of new products for theatrical stages, television/film studios and concerts. But, as always, attendees will see debuts of lighting and audio products for club and mobile-DJ applications as well. Here are a few of them:
L.A.-based supplier American DJ will debut: the Hypnotic RBG tri-laser effect; the Royal 3D laser strobe effect; and the Duo Station controller, a unit that’s two controllers in one—a 3-channel RGB LED controller and an 8-channel relay on/off switching system.
Related company American Audio will exhibit the Encore 1000 and Encore 2000 dual CD/MP3 player/mixer units. Both all-in-one units contain two playback decks, while the 2000 version comes bundled with Virtual DJ LE software and it includes a MIDI controller and two USB inputs. American Audio will also show the VMS2 Digital WorkStation, a 2-channel MIDI unit that comes bundled with updated Virtual DJ LE software.
Taking the LDI trip up Florida’s Turnpike, Sunrise, Fla.-based Chauvet Lighting is set to debut more than a dozen DJ-related products at the show. They include: Gobo Zoom LED 2.0, which projects messages or custom images; COLORrail IRC, an RGB LED linear wash/effects; and the SlimPACK 56, which bundles several popular products into an easily transportable VIP Gear Bag—the package includes four SlimPAR 56 wash lights, an Obey 3 DMX controller, and four, 10-foot DMX cables packed in a CHS-SP4 VIP Gear Bag.
Chauvet will also introduce a pair of compact, plug-and-play lasers—the MiN Laser FX 2.0 and the MiN Laser RGX 2.0.
Santa Barbara, Calif.-based Mighty Bright will introduce the 2-LED USB Red Light. A mobile light with apps for professional DJs, the unit features two red LEDs and is designed to eliminate night blindness in variable lighting conditions that exist onstage and during performances.
