When it comes to professional lighting, nothing beats that slick combination of power and versatility. But getting that combination at a fair price is a rare thing. And that’s what makes the new Vizi Hybrid 16RX from ADJ such an essential product when it comes to bringing pure lighting excitement to your venue installs and touring rigs. Ushering in the next wave of hybrid fixture, this high-end moving head is the most powerful in ADJ’s acclaimed Vizi Series, packing a high-power 330W Philips discharge lamp, motorized zoom and two separate GOBO wheels into one seriously versatile Moving Head.
The first thing to note is the revolutionary technology behind the Vizi Hybrid 16RX’s super-efficient Philips Platinum 16R MSD discharge lamp, which means that you can blow away your audiences with a series of powerful, vivid displays, including beam, spot and wash effects. The Platinum 16R has an output comparable to a 575W fixture, with double the output of a 250W fixture, as well as offering a flat, even spot field and even more saturation of colors.
This powerful light source is then complemented by a selection of 14 colors, plus white, allowing you to create a wide range of effects in a series of atmosphere-enhancing colors. Whether you choose to create ambient washes in more-subtle hues of purple, mauve, blue and pale green or produce some overhead eye-candy beams in vibrant colors like orange, hot pink, turquoise and bright green, the flexibility of the 16RX is just one of its many appealing factors! Of course, you can always use the ‘white’ setting when you really want something simple but effective, showing off the pure power of the fixture’s Philips lamp.
As well as offering this wide range of color options, ADJ has also fitted the Vizi Hybrid 16RX with two independent GOBO wheels. One boasts 16 static GOBOs (+ spot and frost) and the other features 12 interchangeable rotating glass GOBOs (+ spot), with mesmerizing patterns including swirls, dots and others, as well as open/spot GOBOs and frost filters. Giving you the freedom to be more imaginative, having two GOBO wheels to play with lets you have a lot of fun – something which will come out in your lightshow, ensuring that your guests have a great time too. And, thanks to the GOBO Scroll and GOBO Shake features offered for both wheels, you can enhance these effects even more, creating unique displays that bear your own mark of personalization.
Building on this flexibility, you’ll also find that the 16RX is fitted with 6- and 8-facet prisms, both of which are individually rotatable to allow for awesome multi-directional prism effects that bring exciting visuals to just about any event. Want to get extra creative and add something unbelievably unique to your displays? Well, these prisms can also be morphed together to generate hypnotic effects that will grab the attention of your audience and refuse to let go!
The truly game-changing aspect of the Vizi Hybrid 16RX, however, is its clever combination of spot, beam and wash effects, which are all rolled into one highly versatile moving head. This flexibility is enabled primarily by the fixture’s motorized focus and zoom: the concise beam is perfect for creating exciting overhead effects, complemented by fog and haze for that extra-defined look, while you can also widen out the angle (from three to 32 degrees, depending on your needs) for stage performances, table spotting, architectural highlights and other professional uses. ADJ has also equipped the product with a frost function, so you can easily turn the hard-edged beam into a more subtle wash effect that’s perfect for flooding stages and seating areas with color.
Thanks to its strobe and pulse features, the Vizi Hybrid 16RX is an effect that’s perfect not just for static spotlighting but also for creating fast-moving strobe beams on the dance-floor during corporate parties, club events and other occasions where powerful beam effects are required. Not only can you change the speed of these random pulse/strobe effects from slow to fast, but control the intensity of your displays using the 0-100% electronic dimming.
In terms of operation, the 16RX can be controlled using the expansive 19-channel DMX mode, which provides you with unrestricted control over its vast range of game-changing features. With XLR in/out connections built in, too, you can also DMX link multiple Hybrid 16RX fixtures, for far-reaching and eye-catching cross-venue displays.
While the Vizi Hybrid 16RX’s stepper motors (with micro stepping) allow you to position these beams and effects accurately, they also allow the excitement and energy of your lightshow to be super-charged with rapid, dynamic 360-degree pan and 270-degree tilt movement. ADJ has also ensured that you can adjust the speed of the head’s movement, as well as invert the pan/tilt movement across multiple fixtures, for a symmetrical and visually pleasing display. However, if the standard 360-degree pan isn’t enough for you, there is the option to increase this scope to an impressive 540 degrees.
The Vizi Hybrid 16RX is not just flexible in its usability, but also compact and lightweight for its class. Along with the stepper motors, the unit’s low weight (51 lbs / 23kg.) and portable size (12.75 x 14.5 x 22.5” / 325x370x571mm) mean that it moves faster than previous ADJ moving heads, allowing you to produce attention-grabbing displays of rapid beams. Of course, this compactness also makes the 16RX perfect for incorporating into your mobile tour or stage setup, being easy to store, transport, carry and position.
And, if that’s not enough, ADJ have packed this fixture with GOBO Morphing and Prism Layering, two features generally found in fixtures with a much steeper price tag. The GOBO Morphing changes from one GOBO to another by slowing fading from one pattern to another; s much different effect than just changing from one GOBO to another on the GOBO wheel. The Prism Layering is another pro feature that designers will really like. It layers the prism in a way to create a one of a kind effect. Both of these great features may be seen in the Vizi Hybrid 16RX’s product demo video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XzZQQTzecZg)
Using multiple 16RX units is also a breeze, with the reliable PowerCon connections letting you daisy-chain the power for several units. Furthermore, when it comes to mounting your effects, ADJ includes Omega quick-lock brackets with every 16RX, ensuring a quick and hassle-free setup during installation or build.
Do you want high-power hybrid effects without the price tag? Capable of taking your touring lightshows and installs to the next level by delivering pure lighting excitement in all its forms, the Vizi Hybrid 16RX is the solution to all your professional lighting needs!
