Whether it’s a Halloween party or a birthday bash, what better way to set a festive mood than to shoot out a brilliant gobo image that guests will immediately associate with the occasion. Now DJs, clubs and party-throwers can add a creepy spider web, merry snowflakes, celebratory birthday candles – and more -- to their next special event with the Image 250 gobo projector from American DJ.
A 250-watt white gobo projector, the Image 250 comes with seven festive gobos covering a variety of occasions, including: an American flag, birthday candles, ghosts, pumpkin, skull, spider web and snowflakes. Equipped with a brilliant Philips 250-watt long-life bulb, the fixture projects an extremely powerful all-white image that appears to leap right out at viewers, especially when used with fog.
Projected through rotating textured glass, the images give the illusion that they are flying across the room. Users can change the movement of the gobos from fast to slow and clockwise to counterclockwise via a rotation direction switch and variable speed control knob located on the rear of the unit
“The Image 250 is a must-have fixture that should be included in every DJ’s lighting tool chest, because it instantly adds excitement to special occasions with very powerful, intense images,” said Scott Davies, general manager of the American DJ Group of Companies. “It’s also great for home parties and holiday decorating. Plus, it’s very versatile and can be adapted to a variety of functions, from corporate meetings to weddings.”
In addition to its seven included gobos, the Image 250 can be used with your own custom gobos to project anything from a company logo, to the names of a bride and groom, to an advertised house special drink. The required gobo size for use with the unit is 53.5mm (viewable size 28mm). Capable of projecting one gobo at a time, the Image 250 features an easy-to-change gobo slot, making it fast and convenient to switch from one image to another.
The festive images can keep rolling out all night long, thanks to the Image 250’s large high-velocity fan. The fan keeps the unit cool enough to run for hours on end, without requiring shutdown for duty cycles.
The Image 250 also includes a hanging bracket and a circuit breaker, which eliminates the hassle of changing fuses. It comes with a Philips brand ZB-ELC10 250-watt 1,000-hour long life lamp.
Compact and lightweight for easy portability, the Image 250 measures 12.5”L x 8.75”W x 8.25”H and weighs just 7.5 lbs. The suggested retail price of the Image 250 (including 7 festive gobos) is $199.95.
