This month I want to talk about the Startec Series. The Startec brand has actually been around for over 20 years, but just recently we’ve really started to expand its product range. That’s why I thought now would be a perfect time to use my regular Ask Alfred NewsWave article to explain the vision behind Startec and how it fits in with the rest of the ADJ line-up of lighting equipment.

Having worked his way up from the bottom of the ladder, Dutch LD Bas Kemper has established a solid reputation as a creative Lighting Designer specializing in dance festivals. He is responsible for the stage and lighting design at the annual Transmission event that takes place at the O2 Arena in Prague each fall – and has recently expanded to Australia and Thailand – while also working on a variety of other projects of varying sizes. His most recent assignment was designing and programming an epic lighting display for ADJ that stole the show at the recent Prolight + Sound trade show in Frankfurt, Germany.

Mobile Beat Las Vegas Show Recap: One of the long-standing dates on the ADJ calendar is the annual Mobile Beat trade show that takes place in Las Vegas each spring. Having moved venue a few years ago, the show’s format was also re-focused, which has led recently to a resurgence in Mobile Beat’s popularity. Over 1000 mobile DJs from across the United States – and many other countries around the world – attended the 2017 show last month, which once again took place at the iconic Tropicana hotel right in the heart of the Las Vegas action. As always, ADJ was heavily involved with the show. We hosted a large booth, right at the entrance to the expo floor, featuring equipment demonstrations, live learning sessions, gear giveaways, and the official launch of a brand new product.

There’s a good reason that moving head fixtures are used extensively for every kind of professional lightshow, from nightclubs to theatre productions, concert tours to TV shows. It’s because they are flexible, allowing a beam or projected GOBO to be directed anywhere within a venue or stage setup without the need to move the fixture itself. The inclusion of GOBO and color wheels adds to this flexibility, making moving heads an essential tool for every professional lighting designer. But what if you’re a mobile entertainer – or run a small leisure venue – and moving heads have always fallen outside your budget? Well, that may well have changed with the introduction of the Stinger Spot, ADJ’s most affordable moving head ever!

These versatile tools come in all shapes and sizes, which means that it doesn’t matter if you’re running a small mobile DJ business or huge production company, there’s one suitable for your every lighting need.
