American DJ’s 4-Unit Quick Scan System Creates Instant Lightshows

Now mobile DJs can create intelligent-looking light shows that can run all night long, without having to sign up for a bank loan or a crash course in DMX programming. All they need is American DJ’s affordable new Quick Scan System, a complete light-show-in-a-box that lets everyone from novice DJs to seasoned pros produce exciting synchronized lighting effects that look like the high-tech light shows seen at world-famous nightclubs.

And the price is truly amazing. It works out to just a little over $100 per scanner – and that doesn’t count the controller or cables, which are included in the package.

Now mobile DJs can create intelligent-looking light shows that can run all night long, without having to sign up for a bank loan or a crash course in DMX programming. All they need is American DJ’s affordable new Quick Scan System, a complete light-show-in-a-box that lets everyone from novice DJs to seasoned pros produce exciting synchronized lighting effects that look like the high-tech light shows seen at world-famous nightclubs.

Comprised of four American DJ Quick Scan scanners with interchangeable gobos/colors, one blackout controller and all the cables you need to link them up, the Quick Scan System provides the convenience of an all-in-one package at an incredibly economical $419.95 price point. To operate the system, you don’t need to know anything about intelligent lighting or programming—but it sure will look like you do. Just plug it in, sit back and watch your professional-looking light show groove along to the beat of the music.

Each of the system’s four Quick Scan scanners comes with four eye-catching gobo shapes plus bright shades of red, blue, green and yellow. This allows DJs to mix, match and interchange colors and patterns in a variety of fun and imaginative ways, putting more versatility in their light shows.

The Quick Scan units are equipped with unique rotating mirrors that shoot out four beams of light from each scanner, adding even more visual action and excitement to the scene. The scanners also feature a wide beam angle and crisp optics, allowing the Quick Scan System to be used over a large area, while its effects remain sharp and focused. When all four scanners are connected and operating in sync, the resulting light show packs the professional punch of a far more complex and expensive intelligent lighting production.

“Our new Quick Scan System is a convenient and economical way for mobile DJs to create an intelligent-type light show without going to great expense or having to know anything about programming,” said Scott Davies, General Manager of the American DJ Group of Companies. “It’s quick to set up, easy to use and sophisticated beyond your wildest dreams.

“And the price is truly amazing. It works out to just a little over $100 per scanner – and that doesn’t count the controller or cables, which are included in the package.”

The Quick Scan scanners can be run continuously all night long with no duty cycles, thanks to their large cooling fans which prevent overheating. Each of the system’s four scanners comes with a bright LL-EFR 150-watt lamp plus a hanging bracket for precise positioning and safe mounting.

Each individual Quick Scan scanner measures 10.5”L x 7.5”W x 19.7”H and weighs just 10.5 lbs. The suggested retail price of the Quick Scan System is $419.95.
