DJs and clubs everywhere will soon be raving about “the Rave” � the exciting new Revo Rave from American DJ. The latest addition to ADJ’s top-selling Revo Series of RGBW LED moonflower effects, the “Rave” is one of the most compact, yet revved-up Revos to date, making it a great choice for mobile entertainers who want portability with a punch. Although it weighs only 9 lbs., the Revo Rave is packed with 162 high-powered LEDs (48 red, 36 green, 42 blue and 36 white) . . .. so it’s one petite powerhouse of an effect!
Like other members of the Revo family, the Rave produces brilliant, saturated LED moonflower beams in red, green, blue and white that are so rich in color, they look great with or without fog effects. What makes this Revo unique is that its 29°-angle beams are exceptionally wide, and that they project in multiple clusters, allowing it to create some spectacular and unusual patterns. Turn it on, and the Revo Rave’s beams will fill up a room’s interior space with thick spears of color that appear almost 3-D-like. The wide beams project clusters of dot-like images that create a myriad of eye-popping patterns, which dance and gyrate across floors, walls and other surfaces. Add in its color strobing effect, 0-100% electronic dimming and mind-blowing built-in programs, and the Rave will put any club audience in a trance.
“Our Revo series has been incredibly popular with DJs, clubs and bands who are making the transition to LED lighting. So we’ve continued to add new fixtures to the series, based on what our customers tell us they want -- that’s how the Revo Rave came about,” said Scott Davies, General Manager of the American DJ Group of Companies. “People wanted a version of the Revo that was very compact and lightweight for mobile use, but also created huge excitement with a light show that would really stand out. Of course, they also wanted all of the advantages of LED technology, like long life, cool running temperature and low energy use. We think the Revo Rave delivers on all these counts.”
Because it’s so compact and easy to use, the Revo Rave is ideal for DJs, clubs, small venues and mobile entertainers. It’s perfect for both beginning and advanced lighting users, because it can be operated in three different modes: DMX-512, Sound Active or Master-Slave. Operating on 5 DMX channels, the unit includes a 4-button LED display on the rear panel for easy navigation through DMX settings. For those who prefer the convenience of a plug-n-play effect, the Revo Rave can be operated in Sound Active mode � just turn it on and its high-energy built-in programs will kick in. To fill up larger spaces, multiple Revo Rave units can be linked together Master-Slave via 3-pin XLR cable. The Revo Rave is also compatible with American DJ’s optional UC3 remote controller (sold separately), which provides an easy way to control On/Off, Blackout and other basic functions.
Not only is the Revo Rave simple to operate, it’s also easy to maintain and haul around to gigs. Its long-life LEDs are rated at 100,000 hours, so they rarely -- if ever -- need replacing. You don’t have to bother with duty cycles either, because the Revo Rave’s LEDs generate such little heat that the unit can run all night without shutting down -- plus you can pack it up right after the show without waiting for a cool-down period. Easy to transport because of its compact size, it’s also a breeze to set up, since it includes a convenient hanging bracket with a built-in safety hook. And, because it features multi-voltage operation (120-240V 50/60Hz), you can take it virtually anywhere. It saves energy too, drawing just 12W of electricity at full operation.
The Revo Rave measures 12”L X 12.5”W x 9.5”H and weighs 9 lbs. It has an MSRP of $279.95.
