A hazy atmosphere is crucial for making a lightshow come to life; so if you’re involved in lighting production for anything from large-scale concerts to smaller corporate events, nightclubs to church sanctuaries, a reliable and powerful fog/haze machine is essential. That is where the new ADJ Entourage comes in; this professional-grade ‘faze’ machine generates a massive amount of lightshow-enhancing fog from water-based fluid, but spread out into a fine hazy effect rather than the intense blast created by a regular fog machine.
Entourage At A Glance:
• 1500W mobile DMX Faze Machine
• LCD Function Display with built-in remote
• Quick Warm-up time: 45 Seconds
• Output: 15,000 cubic ft. per min
• PowerCon Input
• Uses water based fog fluid
Equipped with a powerful 1,500W heater, the Entourage offers a vast output potential of 15,000 cubic ft. per minute, making it ideal for large stages and venues. It also boasts a very speedy warm-up time of just 45 seconds, meaning that atmospheric faze can be generated whenever, as well as wherever, it is required.
Running on regular water-based fog fluid, the Entourage first creates fog by heating the fluid and then dissipates it evenly using a powerful in-built fan. The output is then directed through a variable-angled hopper which sends the faze upwards and outwards. This gives venues and production companies the benefits of both low-cost water-based fog fluid and a light-enhancing haze-like atmosphere rather than the heavy, smoky atmosphere associated with regular fog machines.
Capable of continuous output if required, the Entourage is also fitted with an easy-to-read LCD display interface that facilitates simple configuration of an in-built timer. This allows bursts of variable intensity and length to be programmed to occur at regular intervals. The machine can also be controlled by DMX using a choice of three different modes: 1, 2 or 5 channel.
For easy integration into any professional lighting system, both 3-pin and 5-pin input and output sockets are provided for DMX. The unit is also equipped with a professional locking PowerCon mains input socket to prevent the power cord being pulled out accidentally.
Further enhancing the Entourage’s attractiveness for event production and touring applications, the machine is actually built into a heavy-duty road case. This means that no additional storage and transportation case is required and setting up the Entourage is as simple as unhooking two butterfly clips, removing the lid and connecting mains power. The case is fitted with a heat vent, allowing the machine to run safely from within its protective shell. It is also fitted with rubber feet, allowing it to stand directly on a stage without slipping or scratching the surface, and is large enough to accommodate the machine’s significant 5.6-liter external fluid tank.
Measuring 21” x 15.25” x 9.75” (533 x 387 x 249mm) the Entourage is a relatively compact machine that doesn’t take up unnecessary space, both in use on stage and in transit or storage. Weighing 47 lbs. (21.3 kg.) it is a significant piece of equipment, but one that can be comfortably carried and maneuvered single-handedly.
The right atmosphere is essential for creating an impressive lightshow, and the ADJ Entourage is ideal for filling even the largest of spaces with a fine mist of beam-enhancing fog. Thanks to its integrated road case, the unit is also easily portable and its varied operating and control modes mean that it is flexible enough to fit into any temporary or permanent installation. If you’re looking for a powerful, reliable and feature-packed source of atmospheric faze, why not add the ADJ Entourage to your entourage of lighting equipment?
The Entourage is available now from ADJ USA; available in late September from ADJ Europe.
