Two new additions to American DJ’s compact and affordable Inno Pocket line of LED lighting were released this week. The new Inno Pocket Scan and Inno Pocket Roll inherit the same characteristics of the Inno Pocket series: scaled-down body for easy storage, weight reduction for portability, and an attractive price tag.
The Inno Pocket Scan and Inno Pocket Roll scanners join the Inno Pocket Spot, which is a compact moving head. Moving heads are the types of lights that you see in front of and behind the DJ in large clubs (the ones that shoot light that look like lightsabers that stretch to the ceiling). Scanners can also produce that kind of lighting, although with more speed, variations and effects.
The takeaway here is that these types of lights (moving heads and scanners) are the same ones used to create the awe-inspiring light shows you see in all the big festivals and mega clubs, and thanks to the Inno Pocket series, you can now have that same type of lighting at a smaller scale and at a fraction of the cost: By linking multiple Inno Pocket Scan, Roll, and Spot units together, you can create a cost-effective lighting rig that you can take with you to even the smallest of bar gigs and, thanks to their automated features, you don’t even need to bring a lighting technician along!
• The Inno Pocket Scan and Inno Pocket Roll are available now for US$199 each.
