LOS ANGELES – When American DJ first came out with its  X-Move LED, the innovative DMX moving head was hailed as a landmark dance club  effect because it used a powerful white LED, in place of a halogen or discharge  source, to shine through color and gobo wheels.  The fixture’s high-power LED source  created stunning patterns and colors, while using much less energy, running at a  cooler temperature, and lasting much longer (50,000 hours) than conventional  lamps.  Now ADJ is continuing its  LED revolution with the all-new X-Move  LED Plus R, the next-generation version of this popular groundbreaking  moving head.

Offering all the amazing features and effects of its  predecessor, the new X-Move LED Plus R is 30\% brighter than the original, thanks  to its cutting-edge 10W CREE white LED source, which incorporates the latest  advances in LED technology. What’s more, the X-Move LED Plus R takes the term  “revolution” quite literally, as another of its exciting new features is the  addition of a “revolving” – or rotating – motion to its gobo images (the “Plus R”!).  Just beam out its 6 replaceable rotating  gobos on the walls, floor or ceiling, and they’ll rotate either fast or slow,  clockwise or counter-clockwise – whatever you specify -- putting a new spin on  the visual experience at clubs and discos!

“The original X-Move LED was truly a technological  breakthrough in lighting,” said Scott Davies, General Manager of the American DJ  Group of Companies. “Early LED beams weren’t very powerful, so they couldn’t be  used as a lamp source to project through color and gobo wheels. Then along came  the X-Move LED with a beefed-up LED lamp that projected such bright colors and  images, party goes couldn’t tell the difference between it and a conventional  halogen or discharge moving head. Meanwhile, clubs and entertainment venues  benefited from its LED technology, enjoying such advantages as low heat  production, longer life and slashed energy costs.

“It’s always difficult to enhance such a great product,”  added Davies. “But we’ve done it with the X-Move LED Plus R.  We’ve ramped up the brightness by a  whopping 30\%- you get a whole new level of intensity that’s immediately apparent  to the eye.  Then we added a  rotation motion to the gobos for more movement and visual excitement.  These improvements, along with the  fixture’s other great features, make the X-Move LED Plus R an incredible effect  for clubs and entertainers.”

Along with its 6 rotating replaceable gobos, which  measure 23.8mm with 0.2mm of thickness, the X-Move LED Plus R features 8 vibrant  dichroic colors plus white.  The  colors and gobos are on separate wheels, so users can create a wide and varied  range of combinations. Still more mind-bending light show possibilities are  offered by a Gobo Scroll mode, Gobo Shake Effect, 0-100\% Dimming, Manual Focus,  and pulse effect that delivers a Random Strobe from slow to fast. High-quality  stepper motors with microstepping, a 14° beam angle, and an impressive 540° pan  and 270° tilt mean even the farthest point in the club will be covered with  smooth-moving lighting effects.

Not only does this visual marvel light up a dance floor,  it’s simple to use, thanks to built-in lighting programs, which allow you to  simply plug in the effect and watch it gyrate to the beat of the music in Sound  Active Mode.  The X-Move LED Plus R  can be run in two other modes as well: DMX-512 (9 channel) and Master/Slave. A  four-button menu navigation system with a bright LED display makes it easy to  navigate through the fixture’s settings.   For those who prefer to go “hands off,” the X-Move LED Plus R is also  compatible with American DJ’s UC3 Series of easy-to-use remote controllers (sold  separately). Another nifty feature is Auto X-Y repositioning, which allows the  fixture to return to its position original position, no matter if it’s bumped or  thumped.

The X-Move LED Plus R is truly a cool customer -- when  the action on the dance floor heats up, it never will. The effect can run all  night long with no duty cycles, thanks to its LED technology. That means  entertainers can pack up after a gig and leave in a flash, without needing any  cooldown time. The LED source is rated at 50,000 hours, so you can say goodbye  to the hassle and expense of lamp replacement, too. Power output is an  infinitesimal 60W, which is just a tiny fraction of the electrical current  required by a halogen lamp.

Weighing a paltry 13 lbs/5.9 kgs., and measuring 8”L x  7.5” W x 12.5” H/ 205 x 190 x 320mm,   the X-Move LED is easy to transport and can sneak into even the most snug  nooks and crannies. It features a switchable voltage of 115V/60Hz or 230V/50Hz  IEC socket. The unit will fit into the Arriba Cases AC-115 padded soft case,  which will protect it during transport and keep it clean in  storage.

The MSRP of the X-Move LED Plus R is $839.95.
