Palette Of Colors. . . In A Box!
(Press Release | Posted 2007-11-15)
Now its easy and affordable to add rich, changing colors to any indoor architectural environment. American DJ has introduced the CW-12 Color Wash System, a convenient, all-in-one package that includes four CW-12 LED panels, a DCW 4 LED controller, and four 5-pin DMX cables - everything you need to highlight a wall, surface, display or other area in mood-setting colors.
Ideal for lounges, restaurants, hotels, churches, retail stores, galleries and other indoor settings, the CW-12 System produces lush, even color washes with smooth fades from one hue to the next. Each of the systems CW-12 fixtures contains 12 one-watt LEDs, (4 red, 4 green, 4 blue) that can create a palette of rich colors, either by using the DCW 4 controller that comes with the system or -- for even more color choices and versatility -- a standard DMX-512 controller in either 3 or 5-channel mode.
With the easy-to-use proprietary DCW 4 controller, you can generate 20 fixed colors at the flick of a switch. The DCW 4 also makes it a breeze to operate the systems 9 built-in Fade Programs with Adjustable Fade Speed, allowing you to dramatically change colors over your wash area.
Adding a DMX-512 controller provides even greater flexibility and customization options, giving users the ability to create literally thousands of dazzling colors through RGB mixing. You can also control dimming and strobing via 5-channel DMX mode. Additionally, you can control each light individually or all lights together via DMX.
Whichever type of controller you use, the CW-12 System provides the substantial benefits of LED technology - low maintenance, low energy consumption, and low heat generation. The systems ultra-long-life LEDs are rated at 100,000 hours, virtually eliminating the hassle and expense of lamp replacements. Despite the bright output of its one-watt LEDs, each CW-12 fixture draws only 12W (maximum), resulting in significant energy savings over light sources such as halogen, and allowing more units to run from a single electrical circuit. Because LEDs generate no ultra-violet or infrared rays, the systems heat production is minimal, keeping the room temperature cooler and preventing heat damage to illuminated objects. Whats more, the cool running temperature means the system can remain on day and night, with no risk of overheating.
“The CW-12 System was designed to make it easy and economical for bars, restaurants, churches, and other indoor settings to add color to their environment with cutting-edge LED technology,” said Scott Davies, General Manager of the American DJ Group of Companies. “Its a no-hassle, all-in-one system that includes everything you need, at a really great package price. It comes with its own controller that makes it simple to create professional-quality color washes, even if you have no background in lighting. And the system is very flexible - if you want to get more elaborate, you can use it with a DMX controller to mix colors, control strobing and dimming, and operate the lights individually.”
The CW-12 units can also be linked in multiples in Master-Slave Configuration. The fixtures have a 45° beam angle and come in a lightweight, compact case. Each CW-12 panel measures 6.25”L x 4.5”W x 1.5”H and weighs just 4 lbs. The DCW 4 controller comes with a built-in mounting plate that allows it to be easily and unobtrusively installed on a wall.
Priced as an all-in-one package, the CW-12 System offers a substantial value over purchasing individual components separately. The MSRP of the CW-12 System - including four CW-12 color wash panels, one DCW 4 controller, and four 5-pin DMX cables - is $1,799.95.
