Prolight to Release Hypnotic New Equinox Kaleido
Prolight has announced the release of the new Equinox Kaleido, a multi-colored kaleidoscope-style effect that utilises a high-power LED source and lets mobile DJs project classic GOBO flower patterns onto the floor, ceiling and walls.

The new Kaleido from Equinox is a compact, portable party effect ideal for mobile DJs and other lighting users on the move. Fitted with a powerful 60W white LED and offering precise optics via its stepper-motor driven GOBO/colour wheel and manual focus, the projector is capable of creating eye-catching GOBO effects in a range of vibrant colours – perfect for decorating the room with a display of psychedelic patterns.

As well as its brightness, clarity and colour, the Kaleido is also equipped with a 3-facet rotating prism mounted onto a ball bearing race, offering smooth operation and allowing mobile DJs to fill wide areas with spinning colour GOBO effects. These effects can also be easily reduced or increased in brightness, thanks to Prolight’s inclusion of 0-100% dimming.

“Retro is back! We have seen increased interest in several discontinued projection items that used halogen lamps,” said Bernie Marsh, Prolight Concepts General Manager. “The original Acme Wildtech version of this fixture was a massive seller and now with the increased wattage available in LED we can start to reintroduce some of the classic effects that made the Prolight Concepts Group the UK leader in disco effects.”

In terms of control, the Kaleido offers users Auto, Sound Active and Master/Slave modes, as well as a 4-channel DMX mode – for in-depth programing that lets them do more with the Kaleido’s hypnotic, vivid effects. Using the DMX mode, mobile DJs can adjust the master dimmer, select GOBO patterns and trigger constant GOBO-pattern change, and change the direction and speed of GOBO rotation.

Mobile DJs can also make the most of the included hanging bracket, for mounting the unit up high in order to send colour GOBO effects down onto the dance-floor or to decorate the walls and floor. Meanwhile, its low weight (3.6kg) and compact dimensions (215 x 210 x 380mm) make it ideal for incorporating into a mobile setup.

The Equinox Kaleido will be available soon from Prolight Concepts.
