If at first you do succeed, TRI, TRI again! American DJ has put its own spin on conventional wisdom with its new Mega TRIPAR Profile
If at first you do succeed, TRI, TRI again! American DJ has put its own spin on conventional wisdom with its new Mega TRIPAR Profile, a compact color-mixing LED par can that features the exclusive “sit-flat” design of the company’s hugely popular Mega Par Profile, but has been upgraded with Tri-Color LEDs for superior RGB color blending.
Powered by five 3-watt 3-in-1 Tri LEDs (red, green and blue), the Mega TRIPAR Profile produces ultra-bright colors that are much more smoothly blended than those created by par cans with single-color LEDs. Its Tri-Color LED technology also eliminates the annoying RGB shadows often associated with single-color LED lamps.
The Mega TRIPAR Profile’s exciting Tri-Color technology is housed in a low-profile sit-flat case identical to that of the original Mega Par Profile. Because the power and DMX connectors have been intelligently positioned on the side of the fixture, rather than the rear, the Mega TRIPAR Profile can sit directly on the ground or inside truss without its hanging bracket. This unique case design makes the Mega TRIPAR Profile ideal for uplighting, architectural wall washing and truss toning, as well as stage lighting, parties, clubs, DJs and mobile entertainers.
“Our original Mega Par Profile became an immediate top seller, thanks to its revolutionary flat case design. We were inspired by its success to take this concept a step further and come out with the Mega TRIPAR Profile, which has the same sit-flat design, but features the professional performance of Tri-Color LED technology,” said Alfred Gonzales, national sales manager for American DJ. “Like the original, the new Mega TRIPAR Profile is a compact, very versatile unit that’s easy and economical to operate, and will bring color and excitement to a wide range of applications.”
Featuring a 40° beam angle, the Mega TRIPAR Profile includes 32 built-in Color Macros, Color Strobing and 0-100% Electronic Dimming. It can be operated in 5 different modes: DMX-512 Mode; Sound Active Mode; Auto Mode; Static Color Mode; or RGB Mode (color blending). When used with a DMX controller, operators can choose from 7 different channel modes for a variety of programming options: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, or 7-channel. A digital display with 4-button menu on the rear of the unit provides easy access to DMX settings.
The Mega TRIPAR Profile can be run as a Stand-Alone unit or in Master-Slave configuration to give synchronized coverage over a wider area. It features IEC AC input and output on the side of the fixture for daisy chaining up to 33 units.
As another convenient control option, the Mega TRIPAR Profile can be operated with American DJ’s LED RC wireless infrared remote controller (sold separately). The easy-to-use LED RC allows for remote control of the Mega TRIPAR Profile’s basic functions from distances up to 30 ft./10M.
Whatever type of controller or mode is used, the Mega TRIPAR Profile will provide economical, maintenance-free operation. Its long-life LEDs will run for 50,000 hours without needing replacement. Each unit draws just 16 watts of electricity, resulting in considerable energy savings over conventional par cans.
The versatile unit comes with a Scissor Yoke hanging bracket that allows it to be hung on truss, mounted on a wall or set on the ground – or you can remove the bracket entirely to give the fixture its unique “sit-flat” positioning. Weighing just 3 lbs/1.2kg and measuring a compact 9”L x 8.75”W x 3.5”H/ 225 x 220 x 85mm, the Mega TRIPAR Profile is great for mobile use. The go-anywhere unit features multi-voltage operation: AC100V-240V, 50/60Hz.
