Now designers and entertainers can set up their lightshow anywhere they wish with no strings attached . . . of any kind. ADJ has introduced the “fully cordless” WiFLY Series, consisting of a wireless DMX transceiver and three compatible battery-powered LED fixtures, which, when used together, totally eliminate the need for both DMX cables and electrical power cords.

LOS ANGELES -- (For Immediate Release) – Now designers and entertainers can set up their lightshow anywhere they wish with no strings attached . . . of any kind. ADJ has introduced the “fully cordless” WiFLY Series, consisting of a wireless DMX transceiver and three compatible battery-powered LED fixtures, which, when used together, totally eliminate the need for both DMX cables and electrical power cords.

Ideal for clubs, venues, performances and events where size and power outlets are limited, the WiFLY Series lets you easily set up a multi-fixture light show in any situation where running cable would be too difficult, unsightly, hazardous or time-consuming.  Fast, clean and easy to install, WiFLY products are designed to work well in RF-crowded environments for consistently reliable, interference-free wireless DMX control.

“Mobility is the magic word in all areas of life today, and the WiFLY Series takes this concept to the next level in lighting,” said Alfred Gonzales, national sales manager for ADJ. “With our WiFLY wireless DMX transceiver and battery-operated fixtures, users no longer have to be limited by the availability of electrical outlets or the length of cable runs when positioning their lights. They can cut loose from ‘the constraint of the cord,’ and have complete creative freedom to assemble the most dynamic lightshow.

“Not having to spend time running cords and cables also makes it much easier to set up and tear down your lights,” added Gonzales. “That’s another reason why the WiFLY Series is so ideal for entertainers on the go. It truly represents the next major advance in mobile lighting from ADJ.”

The ADJ WiFLY Series includes the following:

WiFLY Transceiver– An easy-to-use wireless DMX transmitter/receiver in one, the WiFLY Transceiver can control compatible ADJ WiFLY fixtures wirelessly from distances up to 500 feet.  There’s no complicated setup to worry about either, thanks to the transceiver’s EZ Pair feature, which allows it to automatically connect to WiFLY fixtures - no manual pairing required.  Designed to perform reliably in any environment, the transceiver operates on a 2.4 GHz frequency and can co-exist with other RF technologies such as Bluetooth and WiFi for consistent, interference-free wireless DMX control. One WiFLY transceiver can support up to 16 DMX-512 universes. Compact and lightweight, the WiFLY Transceiver measures 4.75”L x 4.75”W x 1.5”H/115 x 115 x 38mm, and weighs 2 lbs./0.67 kg. It features 3-pin and 5-pin DMX In/Out and includes an Omega bracket.  The MSRP of the WiFLY Transceiver is $189.95.

WiFLY Bar QA5– A compact 20-inch/0.5-meter RGBA LED linear color wash bar, the WiFLY Bar QA5 is powered by its own internal lithium battery, which can hold a charge for up to 6 hours (full on).  It’s also equipped with a built-in WiFLY wireless DMX transceiver, making it an ideal solution for stage and wall washing without the limitations imposed by power cords or DMX data cable.
