ADJ’s Next Generation Beam Fixture Is Here

In home_page, Image, Lighting, Lighting Product News, Product News, Web Articlesby Media

Beam fixtures based on the immensely popular Philips® Platinum 5R lamp, such as ADJ’s Vizi Beam 5RX, have been staples of most concert, festival and superclub lighting rigs for the past decade. Now, the ADJ Vizi Beam 12RX ups the ante with a fixture that is not only noticeably brighter (while still maintaining a relatively low power draw) but also packs in an enhanced feature set to give lighting designers unprecedented creative potential.

The Vizi Beam 12RX harneses the power of a 260W Philips® Platinum 12R LL lamp, which features an innovative reflector design to generate an extremely high-intensity beam. This is coupled with precision-engineered optics and a large glass front lens to allow the fixture to generate an exceptionally potent and sharp beam. It outputs approximately 9,400 lumens (compared to around 8,000 lumens for a 5R fixture) and measures approximately 70,200 lux at 20 metres [65.6 ft] (compared to around 58,000 lux for a 5R model). In practice, this makes for a visibly brighter and more intense beam. In addition, the lamp has an extended lifespan of up to 6,000 hours (increased from 2,000 – 3,000 for the 5R) which significantly reduces the cost and inconvenience of lamp replacements.

In Audio, Audio Product News, home_page, Image, Product News, Web Articlesby Media

Powersoft today announced it has gained certification for its amplifiers to be used in Public Address and Voice Alarm (PAVA) systems according to the European EN 54-16 requirements.

The EN 54-16 certification describes the required testing and performance criteria for a Voice Alarm Control and Indication Equipment (VACIE) for use in alarm systems installed in buildings, where the alarm signal is in the form of a tone, or voice message, or both. The certification now covers the extended range of Powersoft’s fixed install dedicated amplifiers, including the Ottocanali, Quattrocanali, Duecanali, as well as the X Series.

The importance of PAVA systems is widely recognized as an effective way to produce a timely reaction in most people when using voice guidance in emergency situations as opposed to the response to text and alarm bell information, which under half of the individuals respond effectively to. The use of clear vocal messages has been shown to greatly increase the response time and provide the opportunity to guide occupants to the safest escape route.
