Europe - Astera’s new Helios range of LED tubes is now shipping following “record presale orders”, reports the company.
The new Helios tube was unveiled at the recent Prolight+Sound and has all the features and functionality of the popular TitanTube utilising the stable and well-respected technology. It offers “outstanding concept continuity in an even more transportable package - a neat and powerful little tube which can be mounted virtually anywhere”.
Like all Astera products, Helios comes with an assortment of accessories to cover every rigging and positioning need, wish and necessity.
The IP65 rated Helios has eight pixels and is half the size with half the battery weight of the TitanTube, but with the same high CRI and TCLI of 96 for skin tones and detail.
With up to 20 hours of battery run-time, it’s a suitable option for areas like pop-up dressing rooms, fashion show makeup stations and well as for the close-lighting of faces, and in larger quantities, for rooms, sets and other spaces.
The tuneable white range is from 1750K – 20,000K and can be very simply dialled in on the tube or set from Astera’s App.
Eight tubes fit into Astera’s Helios Case which can be used for charging and transportation. It holds the same useful and practical sets of accessories as the Titan Tube case (16 eyebolts, 16 holders, eight floor stands, 16 x bolts, all included with the case) together with eight Wing Plates.
There is a compartment for an ART7 AsteraBox CRMX (which interfaces between the lights and the control App and can be used as a wireless DMX transmitter with CRMX technology) or other accessories. The case comes with the same PowerBox charging as TitanTube.
