Litepanels Astra 6X Bi-Color LED Panel
Key Features
  • Beam Spread: 46°, TIR Optics
  • Variable Color Temperature: 3200-5600K
  • Dual Cooling Modes
  • High CRI: Daylight 95, Tungsten
Litepanels continues to expand and enhance their formidable LED line with the Astra 6X Bi-Color LED Panel, which is 6x the brightness of the original Bi-Color 1x1. 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. As in previous versions of the 1x1 form factor, the Astra has variable tungsten to daylight color temperature with negligible color shift, 0-100% dimming.

Litepanels continues to expand and enhance their formidable LED line with the Astra 6X Bi-Color LED Panel, which is 6x the brightness of the original Bi-Color 1x1. 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. As in previous versions of the 1x1 form factor, the Astra has variable tungsten to daylight color temperature with negligible color shift, 0-100% dimming.

The Astra's functions may be adjusted locally using the intuitive built-in controls, or operated remotely with one of the optional DMX512 Modules, available in XLR 5-Pin, RJ-45, or Wireless formats. Each module provides Master/Replica configuration for the control of single lights, or multiple light fixtures in a network or daisy chain. In addition, the Astra Bluetooth module provides the same kind of control of single or multiple lights from a portable device, using the free Litepanels Smartlite app download. The accessory modules slide into place on the rear of the Astra panel simply and quickly, with no wiring or complex installation required.

The Astra 6X Bi-Color comes with both US and EU power cables, plus a universal (100-240 VAC) adapter. It also operates on 13-24 VDC batteries by using V-Mount or Gold Mount battery plates, available seperately. The unique curved yoke design features a TVMP connector for hanging or stand mounting the panel almost anywhere, and two additional 1/4"-20 female taps offer alternate mounting points.

    I own 4 of these and have a shoot coming up where the only power source will be my car. How can I power the Astra from the 12V cigarette lighter?
    Asked by: David
    This light is approximately 100w. You will need to check your cars 12v port power rating. Most likely you will need a inverter connected directly to your cars battery. Make sure to check your cars batteries watt hour rating. You will want to make sure not to push it so low as to get stranded. Using a inverter that is at least double the power that you need will give you the best efficiency. For 4x Astras you would want to look at a 1k range inverter.

    question

    How many lumens is each light?
    Asked by: Adam
    Around 7000-8500 lumens depending on the luminous efficacy of the light, which Litepanels does not publish unfortunately. They give over 100 Footcandles at 10' which is quite bright.

    Are these considered spots, or floods? or do they configure as both?
    Asked by: Robert
    The beam angle is 46 degrees. It is in between a spot and a flood. You can get softboxes to soften and increase the spread of the light.

    Is there enough room in the duo case to fit two snap bags? I'd like to keep everything together in one case.
    Asked by: Matthew
    Yes. I have 2 stands, 2 snap grids and 2 snap bags in my case. Stands and snap grids fit in the slot. The snap bags lay flat on top. Astras need to be both LED faced towards the front latches and the AB plates pointed up. It’s a very snug fit but it works. I ended up drilling two more holes into the foam to make a total of 4 for 2 ptap XLR and 2 house power XLR.

    What is the comparable output at full power as compared with ARRI fresnels (ie, 1K open faced, 650w, 300w, etc)?
    Asked by: Brian
    The output of these fixtures are very impressive - easily their best feature. I don't have exact photometrics but my experience (30 years of lighting for video production) tells me that one of the Astra 6x panels is comparable to an Arri 1k open-faced fixture. The only (small) issue I have with them is that they are constructed with plastic and they are not as sturdy as I had hoped. Still they are great lights and can put out a ton of light when needed.
