American DJ Dotz Par Can

American DJ DotzPar

In the last few months we have seen lots of new LED lighting hitting the market. Several manufacturers are using what is referred to as RGB “COB” technology or “chip on board” for a variety of Pars, Bars & Matrix style lights. One of the most popular selling fixtures has been the DotzPar from American DJ. It produces powerful, smooth RGB color mixing with rich palettes of color from a single 36-Watt TRI (3-IN-1) RGB COB LED with a rated life of 50,000 hours. Some of it’s features include:

  • 3-pin DMX with four DMX channel modes
  • IEC AC IN/OUT to daisy chain power (up to 13 Dotz Par’s @ 110V)
  • FIVE Operational modes: Auto Run, Sound Active, Color Macro, Dimmer, and DMX Controlled Mode
  • 35 built-in Color Macros
  • LED pulse and strobe effect
  • Electronic Dimming: 0-100% with 5 selectable Dim Curves
  • “Flicker free” for video applications
  • Power & DMX Ins/Outs sit sideways so the unit can be set flat on the ground or set inside truss
  • Compatible with ADJ Par RF wireless remote control and has a single yoke for mounting

But one of the most unique and purposeful features is the lens that comes with the fixture, adding versatility at a price point that is unheard of! The DotzPar has a 60-degree beam angle but comes with a lens filter that changes the beam angle to 25-degrees! The filter comes fixed in a gel frame with two set screws to allow quick & easy mounting to the fixture. So whether you are trying to get a spot light effect or do a wash on the back wall, the DotzPar can do it!

My favorite feature is the price, at $149 each! Stop by Pro Sound & Lighting today to check out the new DotzPar for yourself, or see it in action now:
