Germany - Astera has introduced its latest wireless LED lighting product, the HydraPanel, which features the company’s Titan LED engine.
The HydraPanel offers features including a beam-shaper module, magnetic mounting, and the Titan LED engine’s colour mixing, dimming characteristics and quality of light.
The six-pixel product weighs 600g and has an inbuilt battery and wireless DMX module making it ‘ultimately flexible and useable anywhere’. It can also be run fully wired.
It is IP65 rated in both wired & wireless scenarios so it can be used outdoors or in damp or otherwise challenging atmospheric conditions.
Each HydraPanel emits 1300 Lumens of quality light giving 515 Lux at 1m (without filter) and a high CRI and TLCI.
Accessories include a ConnectorPlate which connects two HydraPanels together, and up to four panels can be joined using three ConnectorPlates to create a medium size panel that is still compact, lightweight and manoeuvrable.
Uses will include key for lighting people as well as illumination of more substantial areas such as stages, scenery, and buildings. Larger Arrays of HydraPanels can be used as a low-resolution screen / video effect, and the products look fabulous on camera, either highlighting people and objects or as cool back-of-camera-fill.
Like Astera’s PixelBrick, power and data are delivered via PowerBox 2x86W devices, and for larger setups, eight HydraPanels can be connected to the PowerBox via Power/Data combination cables. This is ideal for building bigger and more dramatic effects for stages, festivals and events.
Specially designed cases for one HydraPanel are available from Astera complete with Titan Tube PSU and all six beam shaping modifiers plus a FlexBase, ConnectorPlate and BabyPin double-ended spigot.
