GLP’s new JDC1 hybrid LED strobe creates a new class of strobe that goes way beyond the standard definition of a hybrid. Fundamentally, the JDC1 has been designed in three sections, which can be controlled independently or as a complete synchronized unit.
The fixture itself contains a traditional single tube element with an incredible clear, bright, white output, derived from 216 white LEDs, and then combines that with a surrounding, format-filling full face of RGB LED power, utilizing 1,320 high quality LEDs. Whether running independently, or together these elements offer the brightest output unit its class with retina burning output.
The two RGB plates can be divided into six separate ‘pixel’ sections on each plate and then operated with full pixel mapping control. This alone creates stunning effects, whilst the LED tube can pop through with high intensity flashes.
And, the JDC1 also allows pixel mapping of the LED tube, which is broken down into 12 individually addressable sections. This enables the tube to create incredible motion effects, either when forward facing or through shadow play behind a performer. Whilst the tube is operated in this mode, the RGB plates can give a solid background color to strengthen the effect.
Finally, along with working as a strobe light, both the tube and the RGB plates can be run continuously for high output blinder and wash light effects, which never reduce output or have thermal cut-out. With their wide beam angle, this allows for wide coverage of backdrops, stage areas or audience sections. And, JDC1 also offers dynamic movement, with a 16-bit, 185° tilt range, allowing you to place effects exactly where and when you want them to be — to derive the most possible power and impact.
