ADJs Energetic New Zipper Available Now!
The Zipper is ADJs latest barrel-mirror scanner, utilising four separate barrels and four powerful 8W LEDs to generate four-in-one effects, while remaining compact and portable enough for the needs of mobile DJs.

A great way to add punch to any party, mobile DJs can make the most of the Zippers red, green, blue and white LEDs and swivel-mirror movement (enhanced by stepper motors with micro-stepping) to create eye-catching beam effects that are ideal for use as the centrepiece of a mobile rig.

To bring extra energy to their gigs, users can select from the Zippers 16 built-in shows, with the fixture turning the barrels on and off to create a series of multi-colour chase effects that look great in combination with fog and haze. Mobile DJs can then use the units random slow-to-fast strobe effects to achieve more of a club-style atmosphere, which may be preferable when catering for younger audiences at late-night events. The Zippers built-in modes also allow for an effective Display Inversion setting, which allows syncronised, professional lightshows to be easily created. The brightness and intensity of these colour beams and strobe effects can be controlled using the units 0-100% dimming.

The Zipper really is the most exhilarating barrel-mirror scanner around, said Alfred Gonzales, National Sales Manager for ADJ USA. With its versatile four-in-one effects, innovative movement and unrivaled portability, mobile DJs and entertainers, small nightclub, bar or lounge managers, and the operators of bowling complexes and entertainment centres can all benefit from adding the Zipper to their arsenal of fixtures. Using the incredible scatter-beam effects, users can leave audiences mesmerised as the Zipper brings new levels of pure lighting excitement to their events.

With the Zipper, users have a choice between three operational modes DMX-controlled, Sound Active and Internal Show which can be selected on the units four-button digital display. The DMX-Controlled mode offers three channel options (1, 3, and 11), so mobile DJs can enjoy in-depth control and greater creative freedom when programing the Zipper. For those wishing to avoid the complexities of DMX, the units Sound Active and Internal Show modes offer two simple-but-effective ways for users to generate displays. ADJ also offers a separately-sold UC IR wireless remote, which allows control over stand-by, strobing, Sound Active on/off and the selection of Show modes, and is ideal for mobile DJs who want to control the Zipper from behind their booth.

Weighing in at 4.9kg and with dimensions of 482 x 254 x 127mm, the Zipper is compact and lightweight, making it great for taking on the road as part of a more extensive mobile rig. The fixture also features 3-pin XLR in/out sockets on the rear, for DMX control or use in Master/Slave mode. The inclusion of IEC in/out sockets, meanwhile, allows mobile DJs to power-link up to 18 Zippers at 230V.

The ADJ Zipper is available now.
