Jacob Coakley

ADJ will debut their WiFly Chameleon, Revo 4 IR and COB Cannon Wash Pearl at LDI this weekend. The WiFly Chameleon is a compact effect unit that utilizes three 15W RGBA+UV (5-IN-1) LEDs, 63 built-in colors and a variable beam angle to create one-of-a-kind tri-beam effects in an array of off-set colors from one lens. The Revo 4 IR is a moonflower effect that utilizes 256 LEDs and a concise beam angle to generate a series of razor-sharp red, green, blue and white beams that project eye-catching patterns. ADJ’s  COB Cannon Wash Pearl comes fitted with a high-power quad-color (RGBA) 150W COB LED and offers an 80-degree beam angle (variable thanks to the included replaceable 40-degree and 50-degree lenses). ADJ will also feature other new and recently released fixtures in their booth #1317 at LDI.
