The Astera AX1 Pixeltube is a powerful pixel controllable RGBW LED baton that can be mounted at event and film sites to light up people and objects or create indirect lighting effects. The Astera AX1 Pixeltube is a highly creative device that offers an infinite range of possibilities.
The Astera AX1 is an IP65 outdoor rated, waterproof, pixel controllable, decorative LED RGBW baton that can be mounted or used anywhere. While the Astera AX1 Pixeltube is designed primarily for event use, the Astera AX1 could be used by filmmakers as either a substitute for practical light sources, or for special effects.
The Astera AX1 Pixeltube lights work with a specially optimized RGB color space: AsteraRGB. This system eliminates the need to control each color individually. Instead, the light calculates the optimum combination of all colours based on an RGB value. It considers each LED chip’s temperature as well as an optimal color rendering.
The Astera AX1 only draws 28W of power. This enables the light to be run continually for up to 20 hours via its in-built Samsung lithium-ion battery. Once exhausted, the battery takes seven hours to charge – and if that leaves you in a predicament, the Astera AX1 can also be powered by mains electricity. The light generates a 180° beam angle, but only puts out 696lx.
The Astera AX1 lights are constructed out of polycarbonate, and feature metal end caps. They weigh 2.2Lbs and are 103.5cm (40.7?) long with a 4.2cm (1.6?) circumference.
The Astera Pixeltube offers several mounting options. For a quick vertical setup an included stand can be screwed via its M5 thread onto the tube. For hanging the tube there are hangers that can be fixed with screws to wooden surfaces or fixed to truss via a 1/4” Manfrotto stud and a Manfrotto clamp.
Detect all available lights, set them up, check their status, configure DMX addresses and DMX profiles.
Set the length of your event and be sure that your lights won’t run out while still getting the maximum brightness.
100% color consistency through any batch. It can hit exact color temperatures and reproduce standard filter gels.
The AX1 scrambles the PWM frequency so you can be sure that there won’t be interferences when recording video.
The lights give visual and audible alarm and send notification to the AsteraApp if they are being moved during an event.
Auto BPM analyzes the beat and matches programs to it, flash buttons can trigger special effects while being held down.
Switch lights into power-saving standby and schedule them to wake up when the event starts.
The dynamic power-boost feature enables the light to display the maximum brightness at all times and intensify non-white colors.
Switches automatically to white light and runs of its battery when AC power is cut off.
