Alfred from American DJ talks battery and wireless DMX lighting fixtures
In a recent
email from American DJ as part of their NewsWave series Alfred Gonzales the
national sales manager and honestly one of the nicest guys in the industry talks about
how to “cut loose” from the traditional wires (both power and DMX) in your
lighting set ups. The team here at agiprodj.com strongly recommend many of the Wifly and Mega Go products for uplighting and decor solutions. If you would like to
receive information directly from the ADJ family on audio and lighting products along with new product announcements and contests

Which Way For Wireless?
Just about every DJ is curious about wireless lighting today
– and why not? As our advertising for the new WiFLY series proclaims,
wireless helps you “cut loose” your creativity by freeing you from the
constraints of cables and power restrictions. As someone who’s been a DJ
all his adult life, I can’t tell you how much I wish they had wireless lighting
when I was starting out!
So I’m not really surprised that a lot of people have been
coming up to me and saying how happy they are that ADJ is offering them
reliable wireless lighting. But some of the people who are congratulating us
for coming out with the new WiFLY Series are asking if we’re still going to be
selling the Go Series.
Our answer is “of course,” and I’ll tell you why. We’ll
continue to sell the Go Series and the new WiFLY Series because they serve two
very different DJ markets at two different, but budget-friendly, price points.
The big difference between these two wireless systems is
that our WiFly Series has DMX, while our Go Series does not. Sometimes the
set-and-forget Go Series with pre-programmed lighting effects is all DJs
need—especially if they’re inexperienced with, or even intimidated by, DMX
control. In this scenario, the affordable Go Series is the perfect solution,
since it’s totally capable of creating a professional-looking lightshow all on
In other cases, DJs have built their entire lightshow around
DMX control, creating unique programs and having the same set of fixtures do
radically different things at different times. For example, a DJ might use the
same lights to create a subdued effect at the start of a wedding reception,
then switch to a more elegant vibe when the bride and groom have their first
dance, then go red-hot dance-club style when the reception shifts into
full-blown party gear. This is where our more advanced WiFLY Series would come
OK, so I’ve described the basic differences between our two
wireless series, so let me tell you why I like them both.
Our battery-powered Go Series lets DJs “cut the cord,” so
they’ll never have to worry about power connections. You can set these
incredibly bright, feature-packed, lightweight units anywhere—even in places
with no electrical outlets—and take your lighting designs to new levels of
creativity, free from the restrictions of power requirements. Their
rechargeable lithium batteries will last a good long time and keep your
fixtures operating reliably at full force for the duration of your gig.
With the Go Series, you’ll never have to sacrifice
performance for the ultimate in mobility. Some of the awesome color-mixing
fixtures in ADJ’s Go Series include the Mega Go Bar50 linear LED fixture, par can, Mega Go Flood Bar 19-inch linear LED fixture, Mega GoFlood Par low-profile LED par can, Quad Phase Go moonflower and Jelly Go Par64
LED wash fixture with glowing transparent case. DMX control is an option on
these units, but DMX expertise isn’t required to operate them.
For more advanced users, our WiFLY Series takes lighting
control to an even higher level by combining all the great benefits of lithium
battery power with complete wireless DMX control. At the heart of the system
are our WiFLY Transceiver and our WiFLY RGBW 8C Controller. The WiFLY
Transceiver is really a transmitter and a receiver in one unit. It supports up
to 16 different DMX 512 universes, and it will transmit at incredible distances
of up to 500 feet with a clear sight line.
Now you know a whole lot more about which ADJ wireless
lighting system is best for you. But you won’t be certain until you check out
our Go Series and our WiFLY Series for yourself and see them in action. Free
yourself and go wireless with ADJ!
