This year at LDI we introduced JB-lighting’s new Sparx 7 LED moving light. JB-lighting first announced Sparx 7 earlier this year at PLASA.

Sparx 7 1

Sparx 7 takes the same principles of their PLASA Innovation award winning A7 LED moving head and builds on it with a brand new head technology and cooling system. It’s still small, lightweight, and powerful, but includes a few upgrades, including

  • 19 RGBW multi-chip LEDs at 15w
  • Individual heatsinks for each LED, reducing weight and making maintenance easier than previous generations
  • Smooth dimming
  • A zoom range of 4-40º

The Sparx 7 also features a brand new effects engine. Designers can create a huge number of effects with minimal DMX channels.
