Astera Pixel Tube AX1 1m Wireless 28W LED Light 16-Pixel Segments IP65 PixelTube
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 Pixeltube 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 Pixeltube 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.
The AsteraApp gives you full control over the light!
The lights can be controlled via the AsteraApp, an IR remote control or through Wireless DMX (2.4GHz). The Astera AX1 Pixeltube also has a built in standalone engine. It can display static colors or replay a number of predefined effect patterns with a customizable color palette. By using the AsteraApp these effects can be created and be sent to the light by the integrated UHF receiver. The effects are triggered and then each light replays it autonomously until it receives a new effect. Lights can be controlled individually but they can also be grouped into sets, and effects can be used over up to 32 lights.
The Astera AX1 lights can have their frequency changed to match certain cameras and frame rates
The Astera AX1 Pixeltube light is flicker-free, and the refresh rate of this light is 599.4 Hz by default. This frequency can be freely adjusted between 200 Hz and 1205 Hz to fit different frame rates from different cameras.
ANTI-THEFT TECHNOLOGY BUILT-IN
There is a clever ant-theft function built into the AX1
The Astera AX1 Pixeltube has a built-in anti-theft system, so the lights will give you a visual and audible alarm and send notification to the AsteraApp if they are being moved while they are on, and working.
For music videos there is a DJ feature where an auto BPM function analyzes the beat and matches programs to it. Flash buttons can also trigger special effects while being held down.
