Packing infinite dual-directional continuous rotation and powerful quad-color LEDs into one portable source, the new ADJ Asteroid 1200 generates lightshows that are out of this world, sending super-tight beams and distinct pixel-mapped patterns hurtling through the air and down onto the dance-floor.
When it comes to centerpiece effects, the modern mobile lighting user wants something flexible, capable delivering unique, widespread displays and transporting audiences to another world, no matter what venue or event they work. While remaining compact and cost-effective, the versatile new Asteroid 1200 from ADJ does all this and more, providing hypnotic pixel-mappable visuals that really do come from another planet.
A spherical centerpiece effect that boasts a powerful 180W quad-color LED source and 360-degree continuous rotation of head and yoke, the room-filling Asteroid 1200 generates mesmeric displays of multi-beam effects that bring energy, color 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 and haze. Completing the package, the unit’s individually controllable pan and tilt rotation allows users to fill the air with slicing color beams, the unit’s continuous, multi-directional movement ensuring a spellbinding display that’s both high-energy and relentless!
ADJ’s new Asteroid 1200 also provides advance 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 settings, allowing users 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 colorful, room-filling, 360-degree displays that make this awesome new effect the ideal centerpiece.”

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 those experienced lighting designers and other users who want to get super inventive, the unit also offers pixel-mapping capabilities, for the creation of distinctive pixel-mapped chases and patterns using DMX, Artnet or KlingNet control protocols.
