Litepanels Astra 1×1 Kit

Litepanels continues to expand and enhance its formidable LED line with the introduction of the Astra 1×1 Bi-Color LED Panel that offers 4x the brightness as the original Bi-Color 1×1. As in previous versions of the 1×1 form factor, the Astra 1×1 variable tungsten to daylight color temperature with negligible color shift, 0-100% dimming, and a universal (100-240 VAC) adapter. You can also run it on 13-24 VDC batteries with the Gold Mount battery plate (included).

We also carry the Snapbag Softbox for the Astra along with the 40° Snapgrid Eggcrate.

The technological advancement and enhancement is evident in the high CRI and significantly increased brightness due to the use of tightly-binned LEDs and fine-tuned TIR (Total Internal Reflection) optics, resulting in a longer throw over a wider field. Another addition is the Astra Bi-Color’s Dual Cooling. Choose the fan/convection mode or run silently with the field-replaceable fan off. You can control Astra’s functions locally or remotely with a separate purchase of a DMX module. The Astra 1×1 Bi-Color comes with both US and EU power cables and a removable 5/8″ TVMP connecter for hanging or stand mounting. Two 1/4″-20 female taps offer alternate mounting points.
