The Hydro Profile is ADJ’s first weatherproof moving head profile fixture, which combines a potent 660-Watt cool white LED light engine with an impressive 25,000+ Lumens, and an expansive feature set to deliver a truly powerful and versatile luminaire. It is part of ADJ’s Hydro Series of robust IP65-rated moving heads, which are all designed for a demanding life on the road. They can be used outdoors in any weather as well as for indoor productions where they are protected against everything from dust and smoke residue to spilt drinks and humidity.
Heading up the Hydro Profile’s collection of beam-shaping tools is a 4-blade framing system. Each shutter is controlled using two independent motors, one for each side, which allows the individual blades to be applied at any desired angle. In addition, rotation of the combined shutter assembly means the shape created using the four shutters can be precisely positioned. Further manipulation of the output is provided by a motorized zoom function, which can be used to alter the beam angle between 6 and 45-degrees. An even narrower beam can then be achieved utilizing the motorized iris, which also offers automated pulsing effects. In addition, the fixture offers two frost filters, a heavy filter for creating a wash output and a medium filter for blurring the edges of GOBOs.
An almost unlimited variety of aerial effects and surface pattern projections can be created using the Focus Profile. It features two independent GOBO wheels, one with 7 indexed, rotatable patterns and the other with 8 fixed patterns, all of which are replaceable. It also incorporates two indexed, rotatable prisms – 4-facet circular and 6-facet linear – as well as an animation wheel. Any desired color can also be selected thanks to a CMY color mixing system with additional CTO flag. The fixture also offers a separate 7-position color wheel which is loaded with a selection of useful dichroics, including CTB and High CRI filters. The colors are all replaceable, allowing for the use of custom filters should a very specific shade or hue by required for a specific production.
