American DJ has given its Accu 250 Series a major attitude-adjustment with the addition of two psychedelic new mood effects, the Fantasy 250 and the Illusion 250.
Designed to work with other fixtures within the popular Accu 250 family, the Fantasy 250 and Illusion 250 are professional DMX lighting fixtures that double as easy-to-use stand-alone units. Their high output, crisp optics and sound-active internal programming create the appearance of a truly intelligent light show, even when they’re operated without a DMX controller. And both units can be run continuously all night without shutting down for duty cycles, because their large, super-high-velocity fans prevent them from over-heating.
The Fantasy 250 and Illusion 250 are both high-powered 250-watt discharge projectors that produce eye-popping multi-color patterns on walls, floors, ceilings, building exteriors and other flat surfaces. The Fantasy 250 uses 1 gobo, 4 textured glass patterns and a prism mirror to generate deep 3D-like projections, while the Illusion 250 utilizes a total of 10 gobos to create grand kaleidoscopic images.
Their unique pattern effects require no knowledge of DMX programming and give users of the Accu 250 series even more options and visual variety for creating intelligent-looking light shows. Just plug them in, and a complete cycle of 10 built-in programs will do the rest. Each unit can be XLR-linked to others of its kind for master-slave operation.
Professional-type fixtures designed for nightclubs, productions and serious entertainers, the 5-channel Fantasy 250 and the 4-channel Illusion 250 can also be used with a DMX controller to design your own customized programs by controlling things like head movement, colors, gobos and strobing. A Smart Sense feature automatically detects whether each unit is in DMX or master-slave mode, so no additional adjustments are required.
Even though they Illusion 250 and Fantasy 250 are DMX-compatible, they can put on a pretty intelligent-looking light show when they’re run as plug-and-play units
“Even though they Illusion 250 and Fantasy 250 are DMX-compatible, they can put on a pretty intelligent-looking light show when they’re run as plug-and-play units,” said Scott Davies, General Manager of the American DJ Group of Companies. “Thanks to these and all of the great effects within our Accu 250 family, American DJ has made it possible to put on an intelligent-like light show even if you don’t know DMX. You can buy these fixtures now without knowing DMX, put on a pretty impressive light show, then grow into their DMX capabilities at your own pace.”
Like all of the other lights within American DJ’s Accu 250 line—including the Accu Scan 250, Accu Roller 250, Accu Color 250, Accu Spot 250 and Accu Wash 250—the new Fantasy 250 and Illusion 250 come with an ultra-bright ZB-MSD250/2 2,000-hour 250-watt discharge lamp. And with suggested retail prices of under $800, they’re just as incredibly affordable as the rest of the fixtures in the series.
The value that the Fantasy 250 and Illusion 250 deliver is unmatched in today’s intelligent effects market
Extremely compact, the Fantasy 250 ($799.95) and Illusion 250 ($799.95) share identical dimensions of 14.25" L x 11" W x 9" H. Weighing only 27 lbs., they’re a cinch to transport and set up, scoring major points in the convenience column. Other features include smooth stepper motors, manual full focusing, strobe effect, blackout control with Mini/C controller, multi-voltage selection (98V, 120V, 208V, 230V, 255V; 50Hz/60Hz) and safe-and-secure hanging brackets.
“The value that the Fantasy 250 and Illusion 250 deliver is unmatched in today’s intelligent effects market,” Davies said. “They not only provide a ton of professional features for your dollar, but they can help less-experienced users gradually advance to the next level of full DMX control.”
The suggested retail price of the Fantasy 250 is $799.95. The suggested retail price of the Fantasy 250 is $799.95.
