Astera Helios Tube Kit...from our Colour changing lights for hire
Paint the town red, or any other colour with the latest, most compact Astera tube yet.
Astera Multicolour Magic in a small space!
We’re longing to play with all the crazy colours of the Astera AX1 Pixeltubes. But, they’re nearly always out on set. And their cousins, the powerful, tuneable Astera Titan Tubes are just as popular. So when Astera brought out the Astera Helios Tube Kit, we couldn’t wait to try them. Imagine shorter tubes that combine Titan features and Astera punch. These are perfect for tight spots or tricky spaces where a traditional Astera would be too long.
Hire one tube, or go the full rainbow
Hire a single tube or take the full kit of 8, individually programmeable wireless tubes, with all the stands and fixings you need. Because the Astera Helios Tube Kit is compatible with both the Astera and the Titan tubes, you can mix and match to your heart’s content. The Helios tubes use the same onlight controls as the Titan at half the length. These shorter fixtures have 8 individually controllable pixels, and deliver the same light as the longer Astera AX1 tube. And you can get the same lighting effects as with Titans or AX1s.
Astera Helios Tube Kit – like a Tiny Titan
Astera have taken the things you love about the Titan – onlight controls, boost mode, long battery life and squeezed them into a shorter tube. The Astera App is the best way to control these fixtures remotely. That means you can easily return to saved presets if you need to reshoot. Ask us to add a tablet to your quote so you don’t have to jam up your phone with extra apps. The Astera Helios Kit contains 8 tubes, but you can also rent a kit of 4, or just a single tube if that’s all you need.
Clever design for full-colour performance
Colour changing lights like the Astera Helios Kit, the Kino Flo Freestyle or the DMG Minimix are great options if you want to avoid using gels. Save time on the set up, save money on consumables and save the planet by reducing your use of plastic. That’s a win, win, win, in our book. We also love the combined carrykit/charging case. This means you can charge the tubes in situ, or take the charger out if it makes more sense for you.
