Compact Washes with a Twist!

Much like the Illusion Dotz 4.4, ADJ’s new Illusion Dotz 3.3 incorporates powerful COB LED technology, but it’s the fixture’s portability and affordability that makes these stunning pixel-mappable effects seem a whole lot sweeter…

Luckily, our Illusion Dotz 4.4 was much more than just an illusion. It offered lighting users a 4x4 LED matrix mounted on a moving head. It incorporated powerful COB LEDs and gave you game-changing, video-mappable effects. Now, with the addition of the Illusion Dotz 3.3 to our range, we’re giving you a more compact version that’s equally as effective, so you can get the same stunning results from a conveniently compact unit.

The Illusion Dotz 3.3 is a COB LED panel matrix fixture that’s perfectly suited to mid-size venues such as houses of worship, bars and small clubs, providing a compact wash effect that boasts a highly agreeable low-end price. What’s more, with a light source comprised of nine 30W tri-color COB LEDs mounted on a single moving yoke, the Dotz 3.3 offers incredible brightness and flexible movement. So, just like the Illusion Dotz 4.4, it still packs a punch!

Whether you’re a lighting designer, mobile DJ, venue operator or part of a stage production, thanks to its flexible pan/tilt movement, you can use the Illusion Dotz 3.3 in a number of ways: as a stage wash, to light a band or performance, or as an audience-facing effect producing color washes, strobe effects and animated video-mapped patterns. Ensuring further versatility, we’ve also gifted the Illusion Dotz 3.3 with a 15° beam angle, which remains tight enough to offer beam effects, when used with haze, but wide enough to generate far-reaching washes of luscious color. Of course, you also have the added bonus of smooth color mixing enabled by COB LED technology, which lets you get crafty with your color creation! No matter how you use it, the Dotz 3.3 offers high levels of intense visual impact; generating pure lighting excitement for every type of audience at all kinds of events. You can also save and edit scenes in the unit’s on-board memory, allowing you to reuse your favorite scenes without having to re-program them for every event.

If you’re seeking even more creative freedom, you can make the most of the Dotz 3.3’s ArtNet/KlingNet compatibility, which allows you to project low-resolution video content across the COB LEDs using control solutions such as Arkaos Media Master Express and Media Master Pro (sold separately). Adding to the versatility of the Illusion Dotz 3.3 as a multi-purpose effect, these video-mapping capabilities give you the scope to create experimental and highly distinctive visual effects, which can provide the perfect backdrop for your events, stage productions and musical performances.

While this ArtNet/KlingNet capability will let you craft distinct, pixel-mapped effects, you can always control the Dotz 3.3 using its three more traditional operational modes – DMX-Controlled, Sound Active and Auto Show. For an imaginative alternative to video mapping, DMX Mode gives you three channel-modes to pick from – 12, 14, and 38 – and ensures detailed control over the fixture, letting you generate unique, tailor-made lightshows that suit the needs of your clientele or the mood of your event. Alternatively, for the simple but effective use of pre-programed effects across multiple fixtures, you can run numerous Illusion Dotz 3.3s in Sound Active or Auto Run mode using a master/slave configuration.

At ADJ, we’re more than aware of the need for portable lighting solutions in today’s evermore-demanding industry. If you take your lightshow on the road with you as part of a mobile setup, or you want some compact but powerful wash units to install in a club or bar with limited space, the Illusion Dotz 3.3 is perfect due to its low weight of 29 lbs. (13 kg.) and compact dimensions (15” x 10.5” x 20.25” / 380x264x512mm). With Powercon In/Out connections on the rear, you can easily daisy-chain the power for up to four Illusion Dotz 3.3s at 120V (or 9 units at 220V). The fixture also has RJ45 (ethernet) In/Out connections for Artnet/KlingNet control.

More compact, more affordable, but equally as exciting, the Illusion Dotz 3.3 is an inexpensive, portable alternative to the Illusion Dotz 4.4 that gives you an exciting new way to incorporate video-mapped effects and smoothly-mixed color washes into your displays. Ideal if you work mid-size venues, such as bars, small clubs, houses of worship or private functions, the Dotz 3.3 remains compact and simple-to-use while harnessing wide washes of luscious color and the creative advantages of video-mapping.

If you’re looking for a compact wash solution with a twist, the Illusion Dotz 3.3 gives you these professional results at a low-end price, letting you generate pure lighting excitement for your clients without having to spend big!
