CHAUVET® DJ to launched nearly 20 fixtures during The NAMM Show 2012. Contagious new fixtures INfected attendees, including new additions to the Intimidator™ family of scanners and moving heads as well as the Scorpion™ family of high-powered lasers. Headliners such as battery operated Freedom™ Par and Freedom™ Strip Mini, Nimbus™ dry ice machine, LFS-5 LED framing spot, SlimPAR™ Tri 7 IRC and SlimPAR™ 12 IRC wash lights and Impulse™ 648 strobe light were on display.

The Freedom™ series is comprised of two fixtures designed to liberate mobile entertainers from the hassle of tangled power cords. Freedom™ Par  is a PAR can-style wash light with a manually adjustable LED array that houses 198 5mm RGB LEDs while Freedom™ Strip Mini is a linear wash light powered by 192 5mm RGB LEDs. Both include a lightweight and rechargeable lithium-ion battery that provides up to eight hours of power and D-Fi™2.4GHz that acts as a transmitter or receiver to run wireless DMX at any event. Control is also available using the optional IRC remote for easy, point-and-shoot operation.

Perfect for any event, Nimbus™ produces a thick, white fog that hugs the floor to create the frequently requested dance-on-a-cloud effect. This professional, dry-ice machine utilizes simple, plug-and-play operation and heats enough water to create low-lying fog from 10 pounds of dry ice with an average run time of six minutes. A 4.5-gallon tank capacity and dual heaters allow for faster heat-up and recycle time, and an adjustable, multi-level control arm easily regulates the effect’s output and flow.

LFS-5 is a portable, framing spotlight that comes with four popular gobos to complement a variety of events, or create customized looks by designing and printing gobos on transparency film. Powered by a 23-watt white LED, this compact and lightweight fixture includes an adjustable zoom to allow for variations in projection size, a separate focus adjustment to create a soft or hard edge and a single gobo slot to project crisp patterns. Internal framing shutters precisely size and mask light off unwanted surfaces and a removable gel frame allows nearly any color to be projected.


SlimPAR™ Tri 7 IRC and SlimPAR™ Tri 12 IRC are low profile, high-power LED wash lights ideal for wash light applications. Tri-colored LEDs make this the perfect front light by eliminating multicolored shadows and providing a smooth, even output. The optional infrared remote control (IRC) allows simple operation and eliminates the hassle of programming. With a 100 percent convection cooling system, there is no fan noise to distract the audience.

A true substitute for traditional 750-watt, high-end strobe lights, Impulse™ 648 is a superior blend of intensity and roughness without the worry of fragile strobe tubes. Powered by 648 SMD LEDs and encased in a lightweight, sleek housing, this fixture includes adjustable intensity levels and strobe rates, in either DMX or stand-alone mode. An “all on” feature allows it operate as a wash light, a soft light, audience blinders or work light making Impulse™ 648 a highly versatile fixture
