CMY Color Mixing Enhances ADJ’s Hybrid Moving Head


ADJ has expanded their Vizi Series of moving heads with the addition of a new Vizi CMY 16RX. It is reportedly built on the success of the original Vizi Hybrid 16RX with the addition of full CMY color mixing, to give lighting designers an almost unlimited choice of colors.

Offering true hybrid functionality, this new fixture can be used interchangeably as a beam, spot or wash luminaire, providing ultimate flexibility for production companies and rental houses as well as allowing fewer units to be specified for permanent installations and touring shows.

Features of Vizi CMY 16RX

Due to its CMY color mixing feature, the Vizi CMY 16RX offers an almost limitless palette of color options. Independent cyan, magenta and yellow color flags – which allow variable intensities – can be mixed together to create almost any color imaginable. It also allows the color of the unit’s beam to be accurately matched to the color of other fixtures used on a particular show and allows for smooth transitions from one color to another. In addition, the fixture still incorporates a standard color wheel which allows easy selection of nine popular colors (+ open).

The powerful unit harnesses the power of Philips’ incredibly potent 330W Platinum 16R MSD discharge lamp. This extremely efficient light source offers an output comparable to a standard 575W discharge lamp while also boasting a long-life expectancy of 1,500 hours.

As a hybrid fixture, the Vizi CMY 16RX can switch in an instant between beam, spot and wash duties. In beam mode it offers various sizes of GOBO beam reducer that can be used to achieve a variable beam angle of 2.3 – 10-degrees, allowing for piercing mid-air effects to be created that will travel over an extremely long distance. In spot mode its motorized zoom function allows for a beam angle of 6 – 22-degrees, which means that GOBO projections can be sized precisely to match the desired look. Finally, in wash mode the fixture offers a variable beam angle of 22 – 63-degrees, through the use of an internal frost filter, allowing for illumination of tight areas or large swathes of a stage or dancefloor.

In addition to its signature feature of CMY color mixing, the unit also offers an expansive collection of beams shaping tools. Two separate GOBO wheels are installed; the first offering 15 static fixed patterns and the second featuring nine indexed replaceable rotating GOBOs. The static GOBOs allow for crisp mid-air visuals to be created in beam mode and can also be used in spot mode to frame the beam, creating non-circular projections.

In addition to motorized zoom, the fixture also offers motorized focus allowing lighting designers to ensure GOBO patterns remain sharp at any projection distance. The fixture is also loaded with two separate multi-faceted prisms which can be used to multiply GOBO projections and create mesmerizing mid-air effects or complex animated surface projections. The first prism offers a 5-facet linear arrangement, while the second is in a 16-facet circular pattern. Both prisms offer independent, bi-directional, variable speed, indexed rotation and the unit also boasts an impressive morphing feature that allows for subtle transitions from one prism to the other. The versatile fixture also offers electronic 0 – 100% dimming, a frost filter to add a soft edge in wash mode, a motorized shutter and electronic strobing feature that allows it to achieve a flash speed of between 0.3 and 7 HZ.

Despite its comprehensive feature set and powerful output, the Vizi CMY 16RX is a relatively compact fixture. It measures 639mm x 413mm x 326mm / 25” x 16.25” x 13” (LxWxH) and weighs a very manageable 52 lbs. / 23.2 kg. The unit’s base is fitted with large rubber feet, allowing it to stand directly on the floor or stage of a venue, and it is also designed to accommodate two omega clamps for secure rigging. The omega brackets can be mounted in either vertical or horizontal orientation, allowing for easy mounting in any direction. Inside the box, alongside the manual and power cord, are two omega clamps as well as a safety cable for added protection when the fixture is installed at height.

“The original Vizi Hybrid 16RX has proved hugely popular, with lighting professionals across the globe valuing both its impressive output and expansive feature set,” comments ADJ USA’s National Sales Manager, Alfred Gonzales. “However, at ADJ we’re committed to continually pushing the boundaries of what our products have to offer, therefore we’re very excited to now introduce to the market the new Vizi CMY 16RX. Inheriting the powerful Philips Platinum 16R MSD lamp and multipurpose hybrid beam/spot/wash functionality of the original 16RX model, this new fixture offers lighting designers the creative freedom to select the exact color they require thanks to full CMY mixing. It is a really nice unit that is very fast and incredibly compact for a fixture with so many features and such a powerful output.”
