Be INventive: COLORband PiX Series

SUNRISE, Fla. – CHAUVET®DJ, a leading manufacturer of LED lighting, announces the release of two linear LED fixtures with individual pixel control perfect for creating video effects and animations.

COLORband™ PiX [link: http://www.chauvetlighting.com/colorband-pix.html] and COLORband™ PiX Mini [link: http://www.chauvetlighting.com/colorband-pix-mini.html] are compact fixtures ideal for any application in need of eye candy or a powerful wash. In addition to the standard applications for linear fixtures, these lights are capable of generating pixel mapping effects and can be used as an audience blinder. Both work with ShowXpress™ Pixels, a software program that turns almost any computer into a lighting console, to easily create complex looks.

COLORband™ PiX and COLORband™ PiX Mini include multiple DMX personalities to fit a wide variety of programming styles. Automated, pre-built programs are accessible with or without DMX and onboard three- and five-pin DMX connectors increase control options. Both are linkable with other COLORband™ PiX, COLORband™ PiX Mini and COLORband™ Tri fixtures for a coordinated light show and power linking saves time running cables and extension cords.

Powered by 12, three-watt tri-colored LEDs, COLORband™ PiX is a full-sized strip light that weighs less than nine pounds. Powered by six, three-watt tri-colored LEDs, COLORband™ PiX Mini is half the size of COLORband™ PiX and weighs less than five pounds. Perfect for events being videotaped or venues that use video or pixel mapping as part of their display, high-powered LEDs nearly eliminate multicolored shadows while high-frequency LED dimming allows for flicker-free video operation.
