Utilizing a high-output Philips lamp and hybrid beam/spot/wash effects, ADJ’s forward-thinking new Vizi Hybrid 16RX offers up unprecedented power, plus Prism Layering and GOBO Morphing, for more versatility from one compact moving head!
When it comes to professional lighting, getting that unbeatable combination of power and versatility at a fair price is rare thing. And that’s what makes the new Vizi Hybrid 16RX from ADJ such an innovative product when it comes to bringing pure lighting excitement to venue installs and touring rigs. Leading the next wave of hybrid fixtures, this high-end moving head is the most powerful in ADJ’s acclaimed Vizi Series, packing a high-power Philips 330W MSD Platinum 16R discharge lamp, motorized zoom and two separate GOBO wheels into one seriously flexible moving head.
Thanks to the revolutionary technology behind the Vizi Hybrid 16RX’s super-efficient Philips Platinum 16R MSD discharge lamp, users can capture their audience’s attention with a series of powerful, vivid displays, including beam, spot and wash effects. With an output comparable to that of a 575W fixture, the Platinum 16R offers a flat, even spot field and even more saturation of colors.
This powerful light source is then complemented by a selection of 14 colors, plus white, allowing a wide range of effects to be created in a series of atmosphere-enhancing colors. Whether users want to create ambient washes in more-subtle hues of purple, mauve, blue and pale green or produce overhead eye-candy beams in vibrant colors like orange, hot pink, turquoise and bright green, the flexibility of the 16RX is just one of its many appealing factors. Of course, the ‘white’ setting can also be used for when users want to achieve something simple but effective, showing off the pure power of the fixture’s Philips lamp.
As well as offering this wide range of color options, the Vizi Hybrid 16RX is fitted with two independent GOBO wheels. One boasts 16 static GOBOs (+ spot and frost) and the other features 12 interchangeable rotating glass GOBOs (+ spot), with mesmerizing patterns including swirls, dots and others, as well as open/spot GOBOs and frost filters. Giving users the freedom to be more imaginative, two GOBO wheels means more creativity – a plus for any setup, ensuring a memorable lightshow and therefore an unforgettable experience for audiences. Furthermore, thanks to the GOBO Scroll and GOBO Shake and GOBO Morphing features offered for both wheels, these effects can be enhanced even more, creating unique displays that can be stamped with the user’s own mark of personalization.
Building on this flexibility, the 16RX is also fitted with 6- and 8-facet prisms, both of which are individually rotatable to allow for awesome multi-directional prism effects that bring exciting visuals to just about any event. For when users want to get extra creative and add something unbelievably unique to their displays, these prisms can also be morphed together to generate hypnotic effects that will grab the attention of the audience and refuse to let go!
The truly game-changing aspect of the Vizi Hybrid 16RX, however, is its clever combination of spot, beam and wash effects, which are all rolled into one highly versatile moving head. This flexibility is enabled primarily by the fixture’s motorized focus and zoom: the concise beam is perfect for creating exciting overhead effects, complemented by fog and haze for that extra-defined look, while the angle can also be widened out (from three to 32 degrees) for stage performances, table spotting, architectural highlights and other professional uses. ADJ has also equipped the product with a frost function, so it’s easy turn the hard-edged beam into a more subtle wash effect that’s perfect for flooding stages and seating areas with color.
“At ADJ we’re always focussed on giving lighting users more bang for their buck,” said Alfred Gonzales, National Sales Manager for ADJ USA. “Ushering in a new generation of hybrid fixture, our new Vizi Hybrid 16RX offers a game-changing combination of power and versatility, without the price tag. Ideal for touring rigs and venue installs, we’ve packed the 16RX with a powerful Philips 16R MSD lamp, motorized zoom, plus Prism Layering and GOBO Morphing, so you can now do even more from just one fixture.”
In terms of operation, the 16RX can be controlled using the expansive 19-channel DMX mode, which provides unrestricted control over its vast range of game-changing features. Also, with XLR in/out connections built in, multiple Hybrid 16RX fixtures can be DMX-linked, for far-reaching and eye-catching cross-venue displays.
While the Vizi Hybrid 16RX’s stepper motors (with micro stepping) allow its beams and effects to be positioned accurately, they also allow the excitement and energy of the user’s lightshow to be super-charged with rapid, dynamic 360-degree pan and 270-degree tilt movement. ADJ has ensured that users can also adjust the speed of the head’s movement and use the Pan/Tilt Invert setting to reverse the pan/tilt movement across multiple fixtures, for a symmetrical and visually pleasing display. What’s more, if the standard 360-degree pan isn’t enough, there is the option to increase this scope to an impressive 540 degrees.
The Vizi Hybrid 16RX is not just flexible in its usability, but also compact and lightweight for its class. Along with the stepper motors, the unit’s low weight (51 lbs. / 23 kg. ) and portable size (12.75 x 14.5 x 22.5”/325x370x571mm) mean that it moves faster than previous ADJ moving heads, enabling users to produce attention-grabbing displays of rapid beams. Of course, this compactness also makes the 16RX perfect for incorporating into a mobile tour or stage setup, being easy to store, transport, carry and position.
Connecting multiple 16RX units is also a breeze with its 3-pin and 5-pin DMX connections
Furthermore, the fixture comes complete with Omega quick-lock brackets, ensuring a speedy and hassle-free setup when mounting the light during installation or build.
Capable of taking any touring lightshow or install to the next level by delivering pure lighting excitement in all its forms, the Vizi Hybrid 16RX is the ideal professional lighting solution, offering high-power hybrid effects without the heavy price tag!
