American DJ’s new GP-250 is a 250W DMX professional gobo projector that casts brilliant, vibrant patterns on walls and other room surfaces. What makes this high-output mood effect especially well suited for professional DJs and emcees is that it utilizes an economical halogen lamp.

The GP-250 comes with five rotating glass gobos, which create beautiful multi-colored patterns with a rich, marble-like texture. The gobos are replaceable, allowing users to substitute customized images, logos, names, etc. to personalize any event.

“The GP-250 is really a versatile effect. You can use it for everything from creating exciting patterns on the dance floor, to projecting the name of a wedding couple or a corporate logo,” says Scott Davies, general manager of the American DJ Group of Companies.

The GP-250 includes a Gobo Shake effect. It also features 0-100% dimming and a high-velocity fan. Equipped with four DMX channels, the GP-250 can be operated with any universal DMX controller. Featuring eight built-in programs, it can also be run stand-alone in sound active mode or master-slave in multiples. A convenient Smart Sense feature automatically recognizes whether the unit is in DMX or master-slave mode. When the GP-250 isn’t being operated via DMX, American DJ’s Mini/C Controller (sold separately) can be used to control blackout.

The GP-250 casts a 20° beam angle. Its gobos are 32mm in diameter, with a viewing area of 27mm. The unit includes a ZB-EHJ/5 long-life 500-hour, 24V 250W halogen lamp. It features multi-voltage operation (100V, 120V, 230V, 240V), so it can be used worldwide. It measures 13”L x 12”W x 9”H, and weighs 22lbs.
