Return to Intimidator Roots

When my band was finally booked in one of the largest venues in town, I was really excited...until I saw the house lighting system. This is an older concert venue and while they had an amazing sound system, their lights left a lot to be desired. Most bands that play there seem satisfied with the single row of older incandescent par cans with gels on them. I wanted to make more of a lighting impact than that.

I have been a fan of CHAUVET DJ products for a long time and I knew I wanted to incorporate a moving head effect into our show. Because I have some CHAUVET DJ mobile products we use on smaller gigs, I’m usually the one in charge of lighting, since most of the smaller places we play don’t have any lighting at all. I knew with just a little DMX programming and the right fixtures I could really add some cool effects to emphasize our music.

When I found out that CHAUVET DJ was introducing – or re-introducing – two new scanner fixtures, the Intimidator Scan 305 IRC and Barrel 305 IRC, I knew I had to get my hands on them. I remember when CHAUVET DJ launched their Intimidator line of moving heads with a single scanner fixture over ten years ago. I always loved the sharp and dramatic beam effects that scanners could produce. But as the Intimidator line progressed into the popular series it is today with a wide array of fixtures, scanners faded from the brand to make way for more powerful and advanced products. So I was really excited when CHAUVET DJ announced a return to its Intimidator roots with these powerful new Intimidator scanners. I had to learn as much about these new movers as soon as possible and when I did, I convinced the band to invest in them and here’s why.

Power and Versatility

The Intimidator Scan 305 IRC is a compact LED scanner with a bright 60 watt light source that I knew would be able to punch through just about any dark, smoky room we might be playing in. It has a 3-facet prism that will let us split the beam to cover larger areas and that means I can make a bigger impact with fewer fixtures. But again, I knew the important thing was figuring out the best way to actually control these lights to build cues to match our music.

The versatility of the fixtures and ways to control them were a big selling point for me. Of course I can get the most out of these lights with my DMX controller, but I can also make things easier by using the built in movement macros and move-in-black features. Of course I can link fixtures together too (up to 4) to create some really cool synchronized shows using the automated, sound-active or master/slave modes. Another amazing feature is the ability to control such a powerful fixture without DMX control at all just by using an optional IRC remote control. Perfect for a band or DJ who needs some quick and easy control on the fly.

Our band is also getting ready to record a video so these lights will be great because they have a high frequency LED dimming feature that creates flicker-free looks that are perfect for video use.

Make A Big Impact On Stage!

The Intimidator Barrel 305 IRC has all of these great features too and I like the variety of looks I can get by combining the different beam shapes of the barrel configured reflector in the Barrel 305 IRC and the mirror reflector of the Scan 305 IRC. Just what anyone trying to make a big impact on stage needs.

And the good news is, we did make a big impact. The crowd loved the music and the boss at the venue was so impressed with the lighting, he’s buying some Intimidators too! Thanks CHAUVET DJ and the new Intimidator Scan 305 IRC and Barrel 305 IRC! These lights rock so we can too!
