ADJ Asteroid 1200: Going Intergalactic!
Packing dual-directional continuous rotation and powerful quad-colour LEDs into one portable retro-style fixture, the new ADJ Asteroid 1200 generates lightshows that are out of this world, sending tight beams hurtling through the air and onto the dance-floor.

A spherical centrepiece effect that boasts a powerful 180W quad-colour LED source and 360-degree continuous rotation of both head and yoke, the room-filling Asteroid 1200 generates mesmeric displays of multi-beam effects that bring energy, colour and movement to the dance-floor. As well as being fitted with twelve 15W RGBW LEDs, the unit offers a super-tight 4-degree beam angle, so users can create sharp, well-defined beams that look incredible when enhanced with fog or haze.

ADJ’s new Asteroid 1200 also offers advanced lens optics to guarantee vivid multi-beam effects that aren’t blighted by RGBW shadows. These effects can then be easily intensified with the unit’s strobe function, allowing mobile DJs to take their events up a gear and cater to younger crowds looking for that high-energy nightclub atmosphere.

“Our new Asteroid 1200 is an intelligent, modern rethink of the classic mirror-ball effect loved by club owners, lighting users and mobile entertainers alike,” explained Alfred Gonzales, National Sales Manager for ADJ USA. “Not only is it incredibly powerful, but its RGBW LEDs and continuous multi-directional pan/tilt movement ensure colourful, room-filling, 360-degree displays that make this awesome new effect the ideal centrepiece.”

The new Asteroid 1200 can be controlled in a number of ways. Aside from utilizing its Sound Active and Auto modes, users can also operate the Asteroid 1200 in an expansive DMX-Controlled mode, offering 18-, 20- and 69-channel settings that provide unbridled access to a wide range of settings and features. For DJs looking to take their lightshow to the next level, the unit also offers pixel-mapping capabilities, for the creation of distinctive pixel-mapped chases and patterns using Artnet or KlingNet.

The flexibility of the Asteroid 1200 doesn’t end there, ADJ has ensured that the unit is both lightweight and compact, so users can take it out on the road with them as part of their mobile setup. Boasting compact dimensions 15.7” x 17.7” x 23.6” (400 x 450 x 600mm) and weighing in at a modest 48.5lbs (22kg), the Asteroid 1200 is portable and easy to move; the perfect addition to any mobile rig and ideal for one-man teams who want to bring room-filling displays of coloured lighting to the events they work.

Utilizing infinite dual-direction rotation and a powerful quad-colour LEDs, the inventive new Asteroid 1200 is the perfect centrepiece effect, giving DJs the power to create room-filling displays of sharp beams and pixel-mapped patterns that will take guests to another dimension. Equally as impactful when used in multiples, ADJ has ensured that this awesome spherical effect can be utilized for a wide range of applications, providing versatility, power and portability at a budget-friendly price point.

The Asteroid 1200 is available now for a UK retail price of £1165.
