In answer to the constant search for new visual effects, the Effects Company have introduced the CO2Jet System - a spectacular visual display where powerful white jets of CO2 can be programmed to project from a moving head unit - just like a moving light - with stunning results!

There is no cumulative build up, as with smoke machines, since the effect disappears almost immediately.
Like any true innovative new effect, the scope for using the CO2Jet System is only limited by the skill and imagination of the user - and clever applications of ideas/programming will produce some truly amazing effects. Several units may be linked together to make patterns, pulsating, swirling, chasing, similar to moving lights - the permutations are never ending! Up to 7 metre high jets of CO2, which can be programmed to move 355 degrees in azimuth (pan) and 230 degrees in elevation (tilt), all achieved with high quality stepper motors and gear and drive systems for smooth operation.
A standard DMX 512 control desk is used for control/programming. This is fed into/thru a 'datalink module' - an interface unit which sends/receives data to and from the head(s). Up to 4 heads may be used with each datalink module - which may be infinitely expanded as required.
Imagine the areas where the CO2Jet can be utilised: rock and roll, theatre, product/car launches, night clubs, fashion shows, theme parks, casinos, reviews and many many more.
The Effects Company spent 2½ years developing the CO2Jet and 'field tested' the system on tours and shows to prove the complete system prior to product release. The required effect has now been achieved.
