When the sky turns green, you know what that means: One heck of a storm is coming. And now that American DJ's eye-popping new Galaxian Sky laser effect has been introduced to the professional DJ market, club-goers and party patrons everywhere can expect to be swept up under an intense green monsoon.
A DMX-compatible fixture, the Galaxian Sky uses a compact 10mW green laser to create a "Liquid Sky" effect, projecting more than 500 animated green beams onto the ceiling or walls of a nightclub or party area. With a beam angle of 82°, plus 35° panning and tilt, this little unit has a massive beam spread that will cover just about any surface with a huge green wall that resembles a giant nebulae cloud of laser patterns. The effect works equally well with or without the use of a fog machine.
"The Galaxian Sky is great for clubs, bands, professional DJs and other mobile entertainers who want a user-friendly portable laser that will blow the minds of everyone in the room," said Scott Davies, General Manager of the American DJ Group of Companies. "Shoot it up over a party crowd, and watch all eyes turn to the skies. Throw some smoke into the air, and watch the awesome green storm clouds start rolling in. It creates a truly dazzling spectacle, a psychedelic 'liquid sky' effect that your patrons won't soon forget."
The green lasers of the Galaxian Sky sweep the ceiling and dance together in eye-popping animated patterns that can either be programmed in by the user or recalled from a large bank of cool factory presets.
The versatile Galaxian Sky features 3 operating modes: DMX-512, Sound Active and Master-Slave. In DMX mode, the Galaxian Sky offers 5-channel operation (Laser, Pattern, Movement, Rotation and Zoom), giving users the flexibility to command full control of the unit and program their own light shows. DJs and users who don't want to use DMX can set the Galaxian Sky to follow the beat of the music according to its own internal programs. In Master/Slave mode, multiple units can be synched up using standard 3-pin XLR connectors to achieve a more widespread effect.
The Galaxian Sky is extremely efficient, cool running and economical to operate. The effect has a low power consumption of just 17 watts, allowing users to connect more units on a single electric circuit and save more juice for their other lighting and audio gear.
Other great features of the Galaxian Sky include 1.8-degree stepper motors with micro stepping for super smooth movements, a built-in LED menu display for easy navigation, and switchable voltage (115V or 230V) located on the rear panel. The unit comes with a 1/4" input for remote operation using the optional UC3 universal controller from American DJ (sold separately). The Galaxian Sky requires no variance or special permits to operate.
The Galaxian Sky joins the extremely popular Galaxian and Galaxian Move line of celestial-type laser lighting effects from American DJ. A highly portable unit, it measures 11.75"L x 7.75"W x 8.25"H and weighs only 8 lbs. The Galaxian Sky carries an MSRP of $349.95.
