Astera at the Koba Exhibition
[ MJ HONG 2019-04-22 ]  

Innovative wireless LED lighting manufacturer Astera will use the strategic importance of the Koba exhibition in Korea as a vibrant meeting place and Euro/Asian entertainment technology hotspot to launch some exciting new products and showcase its most popular current ranges on Booth D349

The brand-new Helios range of LED tubes – smaller, lighter, brighter and more portable than ever - is launched at the expo – available like all Astera products - with an ingenious assortment of accessories to cover every rigging and positioning eventuality!

This is also the first time at the KOBA EXHIBITION that Astera will show its best-selling Titan Tube LED batten product which was launched last summer.

Other highlighted flagship products will include the AX1 PixelTube, the AX3 LightDrop, the AX5 TriplePAR and the AX10 SpotMax.

These powerful, flexible and extremely easy to use products are making a big impact in the worlds of film, video, promos and television as well as in a whole range of events, rental and staging applications and some more esoteric public arts projects.

Astera is cutting a reputation for providing quality engineered, practical and hugely reliable solutions for any scenario where wireless control is the best option.

Helios Tube

Astera's fabulous new Helios tube has all the features and functionality of the popular Titan Tube in a smaller, lighter and more transportable package - a neat and powerful little tube which can be mounted in places where a Titan Tube might be too long or impractical to rig.

The super convenient Helios has 8 pixels and is half the brightness of the Titan Tube but with the same high CRI ... making it perfect for areas like pop up dressing rooms, makeup stations at fashion shows as well as for lighting rooms, sets and other spaces!

The colours, brightness, battery life and other elements are perfectly matched to those of the Titan Tube so combining the two fixtures gives seamless lighting coverage.

Eight tubes fit into Astera's neat 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, 8 x floor stands, 16 x bolts, all included with the case) together with eight Wing Plates.

There is also compartment for ART7 or other accessories and the case comes with the same PowerBox charging as Titan Tube.

The Helios Handle can be screwed into the Helios Tube so the light can be held and aimed at people or objects when filming, and it also has a 'babyplug' attached for mounting to various objects.

To further enhance the portability of this product, a handy new Soft Bag that takes four Helios Tubes will be shown for the first time at the expo.

Titan Tube

Astera's best-selling Titan Tube is designed to be an invaluable lighting tool for TV, film / video / broadcast cinema and photography.

Titan Tube is optimized for an ultra-high TLCI, a very high CRI and peak brightness, with beautiful colours as well as hue, saturation and intensity that can be set directly on the tube or utilising Astera's proprietary SmartPhone/tablet app.

The Titan Tube can also be run wired (from mains power) and controlled via DMX using special power / data combination cables, which further dramatically increase its flexibility as a tool for lighting and visual designers.

A new 4-unit Soft Bag for Titan Tubes will be on display for the first time, which is an even lighter option than the charging case.

AX5 Triple PAR

The Astera AX5 is a game-changer in the crowded world of LED Pars.  The lightsource comprises 3 x 15W RGBAW LEDs, it has a smart and tough aluminium housing, is completely wireless and IP65 rated for full outdoor-use, all of which allows event and lighting designers to position lights virtually anywhere.

The AX5 will be shown in a special area on the booth to illustrate the new AX5 Dome, a handy accessory to diffuse the beam more than 180 degrees – with some of it projected backwards – and perfect for eliminating any shadows when AX5s are placed inside objects.

The AX5 Dome comes with two different filters that can be fixed underneath giving users 'lightbulb' or 'softlight' style options, and this highly adaptable fixture will also be illustrated working with the 10 other accessories available for it from Astera, all of which make it the most versatile LED PAR on the market right now!

AX3 LightDrop

The AX3 is a small neat battery operated lightsource that can be used as an up-light as well as a hanging or standing spotlight. It is ideal for table centres and has a magnetic base for additional convenience and mounting inside translucent objects or for truss toning, etc.

AX10 SpotMax

The Astera AX10 offers 135W (9 x 15W) Philips RGBAW LEDs with a 13° beam angle and is currently the brightest and the most advanced battery-operated entertainment spotlight; The high-quality LEDs have TruColour calibration and long-life LG-Chem batteries, which -together with the uniquely engineered housing - increase cooling and optimize the fixtures' overall performance.


Astera will also show a range of DOPChoice products and accessories on the stand, including SnapGrid carry bags with a 1-meter version, now available especially for Astera's AX1 and Titan Tube products.
