Astera Helios Tube (21″) (8-Light Kit)

The new Helios Tube by Astera Lighting was designed to fill the small format slot in the Astera Pixeltube lineup. It takes advantage of the features and base technology of the Titan tube but puts it into a 20″ tube. One of the main improvements the updated line of pixel tubes boasts is vastly improved 96+ TLCI and 96+ CRI scores. They are fully RGB capable and have a range of 1750°K to 20,000°K for tunable white. A very large improvement is the ability to operate each unit standalone via the new Backside Display to access DMX options, colors, gel modes, and control of all levels pertaining to them, such as hue/saturation/intensity.

The Helios can still operate wirelessly using the Astera App via the Astera Box transmitter or through a wireless CRMX connection such as a RatPak AKS with the Luminair App. Choosing your input mode is incredibly simple, using the display on each unit. The 8 Light Kit comes with all of the same mounting options available with the AX1 tubes: 8 stands, 16 double ended spigots, 16 Holders, and 16 eye bolts. A redesigned charging case allows the use of a removable Power Box for easier charging or more permanent installations of lighting setups!
