With a wide 120° beam spread, the Astera Helios Tube RGB LED Light is ideal for creating a soft direct light on your subject, for use as an accent light, or as a design element on location or on set. Suitable for cine, theatrical, and event productions, the wireless tube is powered by an integrated LG Chem li-ion battery that will give you 20 hours of runtime on a three-hour charge. The light features 8 LED emitters in a 22.7″ long tube that you can mount into a set, onto a stand, or hang from a grid, or even hold in your bare hand. The Hyperion has an impressive CRI/TLCI rating of 96/96 indicating high accuracy in the rendition of color. The Helios also uses RGB, Mint, and Amber LEDs and Hue, Saturation, and Intensity control to access literally millions of custom colors.
Color and control are at the heart of the Hyperion’s design. The tube has an expansive white-light range of 1750 to 20,000 to seamlessly blend into any ambient light situation, or just to exercise creative expression. You can make these adjustments locally on the fixture or there are several ways to do it remotely. Most familiar is from a console with the Helios 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 via Bluetooth, and IR control via an optional remote.
