American DJ is giving clubs
and DJs a new way to create "X"-citement on the dance floor
. . . without going to a lot of "X"-pense. The
company has introduced the Cross Flash, an innovative sound-activated
lighting effect that creates unusual flashing criss-cross patterns.
The Cross Flash produces its
X-like images with 6 colored beams which rotate and bounce off of 6
mirrors to the beat of the music. The effect also includes
special sensitivity knob that controls the intensity with which the
flashing lights respond to sound activation.
Ideal for small clubs and
mobile DJs, the Cross Flash will add eye-popping effects to any venue
with its flashing multi-color criss-crossing beams. Best of all, the
effect is very affordable, thanks to its use of reflective mirrors,
which create the magical illusion of magnifying the light's movement.
"Many of today's special
effects fixtures are using mirrors to bounce and spread beams to
generate more lighting excitement," said Scott Davies, General
Manager of American DJ. "The Cross Flash is a good example
of how using multiple mirrors on a fixture will enhance the lighting
effects, without increasing the cost of equipment."
The Cross Flash's 6 shiny
mirrors are all fused together at slight angles, giving the exterior
of the fixture a 6-sided hexagon-like shape. At these angles, the
mirrors capture and reflect each of the Cross Flash's 6 brilliant
beams and spread them out over a wider area. As the colored beams
rotate and bounce off the mirrors, the unique criss-cross pattern is produced.
The effect's music
sensitivity knob gives it the versatility to accommodate any club
atmosphere. With an easy adjustment of the knob, the Cross Flash can
flash up a storm as the rhythm really rocks, or it can slowly sway as
the music quiets and the crowd mellows.
Another user-friendly feature
found on the Cross Flash are easy-access doors that take the chore
out of changing lamps. The Cross Flash is fan-cooled and
includes a hanging bracket for easy mounting.
For all of its
"X"-citement and "X"-tra features, the Cross
Flash isn't very "X"-pensive. Suggested retail price of the
Cross Flash is $219.95.
"The Cross Flash offers
great special effects and user-friendly features at a very affordable
price," said Davies. "This innovative mirrored
fixture is in keeping with American DJ's commitment to provide
working DJs and clubs with ever more value for their money."
The Cross Flash also features
a compact design to meet the portability needs of the mobile user. It
weighs only 10 lbs., and has dimensions of 10.75" X 11.5" X 11.25".
