Offering the same show-stopping multi-beam effects as its predecessor, but from an even more compact source, the new Crazy Pocket 8 takes portability to the next level, providing high-energy color effects without the high price.

Crazy Pocket 8Lighting users know just how important moving heads and LED effects are when it comes to providing distinctive, memorable events for clients and their guests. No matter what line of entertainment, the arrival of the energized new Crazy Pocket 8 is an exciting prospect for those who need a fixture that isn’t just compact and low-cost but capable of crazy effects too!

A pocket-sized version of the original Crazy 8, the portable new Crazy Pocket 8 lets users generate energized displays of quick-sweeping beams, thanks to its dual-tilting bars and high-power source of eight 3W LEDs (two red, two green, two blue, two amber). But the fun doesn’t stop there: ADJ has also equipped the Crazy Pocket 8 with a rotating base (with 540-degree pan) and a capacity for stunning 8-zone LED chases, allowing lightshows to be effortlessly taken to the next level in terms of creativity, movement and scope.

Essentially an ON-X mounted onto a moving head, the fixture features two independently tilting bars (each with four lenses and 205-degree tilt) and a rotating base yolk, letting users craft compelling multi-beam displays of RGBA color that fill the room with movement and look extra effective when used with fog and haze. Thanks to the concise 4-degree beam angle, ADJ has made sure that these powerful beams are tight and cutting, while the stepper motors ensure precise positioning and quick-sweeping movements for a dynamic and attention-grabbing lightshow. Taking this creativity into exciting new realms, users can also produce energetic 8-zone LED chase effects that run across both of the fixture’s tilting bars to ensure an eye-catching lightshow for clients and guests!

Whether used by mobile DJs, club owners, stage managers or event organizers, the colorful scatter-beam effects offered by the Crazy Pocket 8 are ideal for bringing far-reaching, memorable visuals to any event or performance. Giving users even more bang for their buck, however, ADJ has also designed the fixture to offer intense strobe and pulse effects, while 0-100% electronic dimming allows the style of lighting to be switched from attention-grabbing to subdued in a matter of seconds.

“Our new Crazy Pocket 8 is a novel concept that sees an ON-X-style unit mounted onto a moving head, but the crazy effects it creates look even more exciting than that sounds!” Alfred Gonzales, National Sales Manager for ADJ USA, said. “We’ve built the fixture with two independently tilting bars, each fitted with four lenses, and a rotating base yolk, so users can produce stunning RGBA multi-beam displays that really fill the room with color and movement. The affordability and compactness of the Crazy Pocket 8 are just two of the benefits.”

CRAZY POCKET 8 FXUndoubtedly users will find the Crazy Pocket 8 highly effective as a single unit, but it’s equally as impactful when used in multiples – particularly if users want to incorporate it into their stage setups or venue installations. Due to its low weight (8 lbs. / 3.6kg) and pocket-sized dimensions (11.75 x 6 x 10.25in / 298 x 152 x 260mm) the fixture is easy to mount, even in venues or rooms with limited space and low ceilings, while transporting and storing the Crazy Pocket 8 is also hassle-free. Of course, despite its convenient size, this moving head still packs a punch, ensuring atmosphere-enhancing displays wherever it’s put to use. Making the positioning of the Crazy Pocket 8 even easier, sturdy mounting brackets are also included with the fixture, for fixing to the wall, attaching to truss or setting on the ground.

The impressive portability of the Crazy Pocket 8 ensures its merit as a versatile moving head, but so too does its range of control options. Whether being used by mobile entertainers or amateur lighting users with limited knowledge of DMX, or experienced lighting designers looking to get imaginative with dual-tilt movement and RGBA beams, the Crazy Pocket 8 has a control option to suit every requirement.

As well as Sound Active and Show modes (which utilize a range of awesome built-in programs), the Crazy Pocket 8 provides an extensive DMX-Controlled mode with 1-, 9-, 17- and 12-channel settings, allowing users to unleash their creative side and produce a memorable and distinctive display for their audiences and clients. Alongside these primary control functions, users can also make the most of the separately sold UC IR remote or ADJ’s  game-changing new APPs –

Airstream IR and Airstream DMX Bridge – with flexible control over the Crazy Pocket 8 from any compatible iOS device.

A portable and cost-effective way to incorporate high-energy, room-filling beam effects into a mobile lightshow, nightclub venue or stage production, the forward-thinking Crazy Pocket 8 lets users create pure lighting excitement at a budget-conscious price point. For those wanting to unlock their artistic side – without paying big bucks – there’s no better solution for creating crazy lighting effects than the Crazy Pocket 8!
