October 2016

Last month I wrote about our New Product Jamboree & BBQ at ADJ’s LA HQ and said that I was sure we’d be opening up our doors again very soon for another event. Well, I was right, and there really isn’t long to wait! In November we’ll be hosting a New Products Showcase at our East Coast facility down in Miami… and you’re invited!

Following the successful launch of no less than 13 exciting new products at LDI earlier in October, we’ll be taking them all down to Miami on Thursday November 17, 2016
. Running from 1pm to 5pm, the New Product Showcase will not only offer the opportunity for you to see the latest equipment in the flesh, but we’ll also be hosting a series of informative educational sessions as well as debuting an incredible new lightshow at our Miami showroom.

Open to absolutely anyone who’d like to come along, the event will be ideal for retailers, installers, lighting designers, technicians, mobile entertainers and anyone else who wants to find out about the latest ADJ equipment. As well as getting to see the new products in action, this will also be a chance to meet and chat with myself and other members of the ADJ team and to network with other lighting users. It will be an informal gathering and we’ll be laying on food, offering a taste of the local culinary favors. We’ll also be running a prize draw exclusively for visitors on the day, and quite possibly be giving away some ADJ swag, so there are lots of reasons to make sure that you join us.

One of the biggest hits of this year’s LDI was the impressive new Vizi BSW 300, ADJ’s most powerful LED moving head to date. A hybrid fixture offering intense beams, sharp spots and wide-reaching washes, the new fixture is designed for large venues as well as touring shows and event production. At the Miami New Product Showcase, Product Specialist Edgar Bernal will host a seminar explaining the differences between each of ADJ’s current range of popular moving heads, including the BSW 300, as well as sharing tips for making a lightshow even more epic!

Edgar will also present another session he’s calling ‘How Low Can You Go?’ ADJ now offers an LED video panel with an even tighter pitch, in the form of the brand new AV3, and this seminar will run through the features of the new panel and discuss the applications where an LED video panel with 3mm pitch may be required. Edgar will also demonstrate the AV3 in action using high resolution video content to show the incredible picture quality it offers for large-format screens.

Following the recent release of V3.0 of ADJ’s powerful, yet user-friendly, DMX control solution myDMX, Arnoldo Offermann will give a presentation in Miami highlighting the exciting new features that have been added. Perfect for everyone from lighting beginners to seasoned pros, myDMX’s easy to use interface and advanced features make it easy to create impressive lightshows very quickly. This session will be perfect for anyone considering taking control of their lighting system for the first time, as well as existing myDMX users who want to find out about the useful new features that have been added to the latest release.

Arnoldo will also give a presentation on Warm White vs. Cool White LEDs, explaining the difference between these two types of light-source and their varying potential uses. As part of the session, ADJ products which are available with a choice of cool white and warm white LEDs, such as the Ikon Profile GOBO projector and new Saber Spot compact pinspot, will be showcased. This will give you an opportunity to see the difference for yourself, helping you to choose the right products for your particular needs.

Finally, DuraTruss’ Robert Aguiar will be in Miami to discuss the company’s range of high-quality, high-value trussing solutions. Robert will also host a seminar showcasing some of the innovative new truss ideas that the company has introduced recently that can help to take equipment setups to a whole new level!

With lots of exciting new products to check out and a host of interesting learning sessions to take in, our Miami open house looks set to be a fantastic day. Throw good food and good company into the mix, and it’s an event you’ll not want to miss!

The Miami New Product Showcase is free to attend, but if you’d like to come, we do need you to register so that we know how many guests to cater for. So, if you’re planning to join us, please register online to confirm your place.

I look forward to seeing you there!
