ADJ expands the Focus Series with the Focus Spot One. The Focus Spot One is designed to be compact and affordable moving head with a feature-set to rival larger and more expensive fixtures.

Housing a 35-watt white LED light-source, as well as a separate 3W UV LED, the Focus Spot One is capable of creating pattern projections as well as mid-air beam effects. Its diminutive size is designed to make it ideal for installs where ceiling height is limited, or for mobile applications where vehicle space is at a premium.

As with all of the Focus Series units, the Focus Spot One has remote electronic focus adjustment.
Another key feature of the Focus Spot One is EZ GOBO change. The unit’s six GOBOs are replaceable and one screw needs to be removed in order to swing open the top lid and access the GOBO wheel.  All of the GOBOs can be rotated at variable speed in either direction. The GOBO rotation is also indexed, which means that custom GOBOs – such as corporate logos – can be programmed via DMX to appear in the correct orientation, regardless of the projection angle.
Offering a wide variety of control options, the Focus Spot One is designed as equally suited to lighting novices looking for a ‘plug and play’ solution as it is to lighting professionals who need exacting control of every feature of their lighting fixtures. It comes pre-programmed with four different and varied built-in lightshows, which can be run in either Show Mode – at a set speed – or in Sound Active Mode – triggered by the beat of the music by an internal microphone. These pre-set lightshows can be set to run on a single fixture, or across multiple units linked together by XLR cables in a Master/Slave configuration. For a simple to setup but impressive lightshow, the Pan or Tilt movement of individual fixtures can also be inverted to create synchronized mirrored movements.
For simple control of the inbuilt lightshows, the Focus Spot One is also compatible with the ADJ UC IR remote (sold separately), which allows selection between the four lightshows as well as control of GOBO, COLOR, Strobe and Blackout functions. The unit is also compatible with ADJ’s new Airstream IR app, which allows the same control from an iOS tablet or phone.
For professional users, all of the Focus Spot One’s expansive set of features can be accessed remotely via DMX. A choice of two DMX control modes – 15 and 17 channel – is available and DMX addressing, as well as mode selection, is easy using the backlit LCD menu panel on the front of the unit’s base. The unit is also flexible when it comes to its positioning; it is supplied with an Omega bracket for truss mounting and is also fitted with rubber feet allowing it to stand directly on a stage or riser.
As well as being incredibly compact, measuring 7.75” x 8.75” x 14.25”/ 197mm x 221mm x 360mm (LxWxH), the Focus Spot One is also lightweight, at 12.5 lbs. /5.7 kgs. Despite its small size, this is a professional fixture, and it is accordingly equipped with locking PowerCON AC input and output sockets. The inclusion of the output connection means that the mains power supply for multiple fixtures can be linked together, reducing the number of cables required for a multi-fixture setup. Up to 19 Focus Spot Ones can be connected together at 120V, while as many as 35 fixtures can be linked at 240V.
