American DJ’s Matrix Beam LED is a 5’ x 5’square panel that can be set up anywhere to create instant  electrifying blinder and/or chase effects for stages and mobile  productions. Featuring 25 x 3-watt warm white Cree LEDs, arranged in  five rows of five, the matrix-like effect emits intensely bright spots of light that move to built-in chase sequences and can even  produce alpha-numeric characters via DMX control.

Whether used as a  backdrop for a DJ booth, an eye-popping chase effect in a club, or  beaming out from the stage as an audience blinder, the Matrix Beam LED  will add dramatic illumination to any venue or production. This stunning effect offers 3 operational modes – Auto  (Program Run) Mode, Sound Active Mode, and DMX-512 Mode – providing a  great degree of flexibility and user options. Set it in sound-active  mode and it will run through exciting chase programs in sync with the music. Use a DMX controller to spell out names or  promotional messages, and it becomes a billboard “in lights” for a  performer or establishment.  The  Matrix Beam LED even has an easy-to-use latch system for linking multiple panels  together, so you can display your lighting designs over larger areas.

“The Matrix Beam  LED is one of the coolest-looking effects American DJ has introduced in  recent times, and also one of the most versatile,” said Alfred Gonzales,  national sales manager for American DJ.  “Any DJ, club or mobile  production can now easily create professional-looking blinder and chase  effects that will immediately grab attention.  The panel’s  brilliant white LEDs, amazing built-in chase programs, and ability to  produce custom designs – even letters and numbers – make this a  must-have effect for your lighting toolchest.”

Emitting a 2°  beam angle, the Matrix Beam LED includes such user programmable features  as a variable speed strobe effect and 0-100% electronic dimming. When  used with a DMX controller, it offers 3 different channel modes (1, 4 or 25 channels), for an array of programming  options. Its DMX settings are easily accessible via a 4-button LED  display on the rear panel. As another convenient control option, the  Matrix Beam LED is compatible with American DJ’s UC3 Series of easy-to-use controllers (sold separately).

A great-looking  effect when used in multiples, the Matrix Beam LED features a built-in  latching system for easy linking with other units.  Each panel  also includes IEC AC In/Out on the rear to daisy chain power for  connecting up to 3 Matrix Beam LED units. A yoke and safety hook come  attached to each panel.

Cool running and  flicker free, the Matrix Beam LED’s long-life LEDs are rated at 50,000  hours for low maintenance. For all its intensely bright, dramatic  effects, the unit is extremely energy efficient, consuming just 66 watts of electricity at maximum use.

Designed for  mobile productions, the panels are easy to transport, measuring 23.75”L x  23.75”W x 4.5”D/ 600 x 600 x 114mm (26.25” x 26.5” x 4.5”/ 664 x 668 x  114 with handles).  Each panel weighs 23 lbs./ 10.2 kg.

The Matrix Beam LED features multi-voltage operation: AC 100-240V, 50/60 Hz.  The MSRP of the Matrix Beam LED is $899.95.
