Astera Fresnels will feature on the contemporary stand in Frankfurt
Germany - Astera will showcase a full range of its powerful and flexible wireless LED lighting solutions on stand B30 in Hall 12.1 at the PL+S next week, including the award-winning PlutoFresnel and LeoFresnel fixtures and the new ProjectionLens for PlutoFresnel.
The contemporary stand design will enable sales director Sebastian Buckle and the team to welcome visitors and highlight numerous current Astera innovations like the HydraPanel, PixelBrick, AX9 PowerPAR and AX2 PixelBar, the smart and neat NYX Bulb and, naturally, the flagship TitanTube family – Titan, Helios, and Hyperion – which are popular and ubiquitous in show and event lighting worldwide.
It is important for Astera to have a significant presence at PL+S which is always a busy and productive show and a crucial platform for engaging with industry professionals from many sectors on multiple levels.
As well as for networking, it’s also seen as a key forum for staying abreast of trends and general innovations in the worlds of professional lighting and visual technology.
Targeted product demonstrations will highlight the versatility, performance, and invention for which the brand is known, and the show is also an opportunity to gather valuable industry feedback from experts and end-users that can be fed into ongoing product development and planning.
The Astera booth will feature eye-catching 4-sided LED screens at the top. The space has subtly been expanded with more room for products, while the overall style is consistent with other Astera booth designs. The HydraPanel Flexi Series will be incorporated on the back wall.
The two Astera Fresnels currently available were both launched in the last 12 months. The PlutoFresnel is for medium to small spaces and applications and the larger LeoFresnel is a cable-free LED alternative to the classic 1K Fresnel.
These are the first battery powered Fresnel lighting fixtures developed by Astera, and come with a complete package of barn doors, a full yoke with TVMP adapter for stand mounting, removable handle and several other super-useful accessories – as you would expect with an Astera product.
Designed under the mantra ‘Fresnels Made Portable’, the PlutoFresnel weighs just 4.6kg and can be easily transported and installed in a range of contexts that would be more challenging for conventional tungsten Fresnels.
The larger LeoFresnel while comparable in light output to a standard 1K Tungsten lamp, actually has an even higher lumen value than this industry benchmark when running in 6500K daylight white.
Last month, Astera launched a ProjectionLens for the PlutoFresnel, with precision optics, 16° to 36° manual zoom, accurate shutters for highlighting specific areas, plus gobos, all adding to the value and multifunctionality of the Astera Fresnel.
