ILS = Instant Light Shows: Chauvet DJ's DMX-Free Lighting System

Easy to activate and always in sync, ILS guarantees next-level light shows with a faster setup time than ever before. Chauvet DJ's revolutionary auto-sync technology eliminates the need for DMX programming, without sacrificing the experience of a perfectly coordinated light show across various fixture types.

Unlike DMX, ILS creates Instant Light Shows in no time. Just connect your leader with your fixtures to trigger dynamic, coordinated light shows. DMX requires programming which takes time to learn and time to setup. And unlike sound activated lights, ILS technology instantly triggers light effects across a variety of fixture types that are perfectly synced. read more

To get started with ILS, choose a Leader to auto-sync looks and build your ILS package. If you're looking for hands-off control, GigBAR Move ILS and GigBAR Move + ILS are the leader for you. If you're looking for hands-on control at the push of a button, choose ILS Command. The ILS Command console lets you choose the exact looks you'd like to trigger.

Next, build out your ILS lighting package. Whether you're looking for a moving head, wash, laser, or effect light, Chauvet DJ has an ILS option for you.

"Good build quality, not good light fixture"

As a mobile DJ, until now, I have only purchased Chauvet lighting products as I have come to trust them wholly. This fixture is as well built as any other Chauvet DJ product. For that it gets a star. It is also a good wash light, another star. The love affair came to an abrupt halt when I utilized the other functions. Shame on you, Chauvet DJ, for installing such a cheesy laser and effects in this light. Ruins the whole thing. Seriously, look outside at your neighbor with the green and red dots instead of Christmas lights. That is what this is. You can buy better effects lights at Wal Mart. I bought these for middle school dances. There is NO WAY I am going to install these in my setup so these kids can laugh about Grandpa's Christmas lights. Bottom line, I returned them and got another pair of Wash FX HEX. THOSE are good lights, that do what you expect. Then I ponied up for a Scorpion Dual RGB. That is for another review.
