The Astera Pixeltube is a versatile RGBW baton light which is wirelessly controlled to produce a wide range of film, television and event lighting effects. Particularly suited as an in-vision practical source, the AX1 Pixeltube is also useful when additional lighting is required in confined spaces and offers an alternative to using either a single tube Kino Flo or an Encapsulite tube light.
Each AX1 baton has a 180° distribution of light and features 16 pixel banks which can be independently programmed and controlled. Featuring an internal battery, the AX1 can operate for up to 20 hours on a single charge cycle and is IP65 rated for outdoor use. It is supplied with a range of mounting hardware enabling it to be rigged in many different positions.
Our standard rental kit includes 4 x Astera AX1 Pixeltubes and a range of mounting/grip accessories. For enhanced wireless control of the Pixeltube light, we recommend hiring them along with the Astera ART7 Wireless DMX interface.
This unit acts as the interface between the lights, the controller and the app, providing an easy and time-saving set up and overall user experience. It has an operational distance up to 300 metres (Unobstructed) and can control up to 100 Astera lighting fixtures simultaneously.
The kit includes a wireless DMX interface and an Android tablet running the Astera app.
Shoot Blue is an amazing rental company who's reliable and competitive in what they offer. I've had the opportunity to work with them on several different projects and their service has always been top. Highly recommended!
Shoot Blue have been my supplier of choice since 2007 ever since they were first recommended to me. Even if you're just doing a small shoot you're treated with the same care and attention as when you're on a big shoot and they go out of their way to accommodate your needs. Their prices are very competitive and the service is top notch and I always feel comfortable turning to them for advice and asking for recommendations on kit. When you hire their in house crew to work on your shoots the crew members are always really knowledgeable about the equipment and well trained, they are reliable and come to the set with a positive attitude and work hard to get the best results possible. I would highly recommend them to any independent filmmakers.
As a business owner, Director Shoot Blue has helped me build who I am as a story teller behind the camera. In my view the most important thing to my success as a story teller is knowing that I have a rental house you can always depend on. Shoot Blue has delivered outstanding service time after time again. Great job to the team :)
Shoot Blue are a fantastic rental firm with lovely staff and awesome equipment. They supported my recent commercial production very well indeed and I wouldn't hesitate to reccomend them to any size project. They deliverted and collected the kit as neccesary, modified the order when production requirements changed and generally helped the whole process go smoothly.
