Astera Helios Tube RGB LED Tube (4-Light Kit ) Light for rent at Film Equipment Hire Ireland
This Helios Tube 4-Light Kit from Astera is a formidable setup destined for the road. The set includes eight 1.8′ Helios RGB tubes and a hard, shippable charging case with an included DMX-compatible PowerBox that can actually charge the tubes with them inside. Astera has provided a full array of mounting options including sixteen holders with cotter pins for truss mounting, and sixteen spigots for joining tubes together and to be used as mounting studs for the eight included floor stands.
With a wide 120° beam spread, the Astera Helios Tube RGB LED Tube Light will create a soft direct light on your subject and can be used as an accent light or as a design element either on location or on set. Suitable for cine, theatrical, and event productions, the wireless tube is powered by an integrated battery that will give you 20 hours of runtime on a three-hour charge. The light outputs up to 393 lux at 3.3′ (4000K) and features eight LED emitters in a 1.8′ long tube. It allows mounting in areas where a Titan Tube wouldn’t fit, so you can mount into a set, onto a stand, hang it from a grid, or even hold in your bare hand. The Helios Tube has impressive CRI/TLCI ratings of 96/96 to indicate high accuracy in the rendition of color. It uses RGB, mint, and amber LEDs as well as hue, saturation, and intensity control to access millions of custom colors.
Color and control are at the heart of the Helios Tube’s design. The tube has an expansive white light color temperature range of 1750 to 20,000K to seamlessly blend into any ambient light situation or just exercise creative expression. You can make adjustments locally on the fixture or remotely via a console with the Helios Tube wired to it. Wireless DMX, CRMX, and other types of units can adjust functions at distances up to 990′. There’s also an AsteraApp that lets you control the light with Bluetooth and IR control via an optional remote. The Helios Tube ships without a power supply so you can choose between an optional AC adapter/charger or a PowerBox.
