The PavoTube T8-7X RGB LED Pixel Tube Light from Nanlite is a 3' RGBWW LED pixel tube with a compact, 1.5" diameter body, a built-in lithium-ion battery, and all of the key features that make Nanlite's LED tubes ideal for video productions and photoshoots. The T8-7X was built for creative pursuits, from light-painting photography to being used as in-frame lights for video productions. It outputs up to 117 lux at 3.3' (5600K) with a variable color temperature from 2700 to 7500K. The light includes the same customizable animated pixel effects found in PavoTube II X-Series LED tubes.

This lightweight, easy-to-use tube can be handheld or mounted in a variety of ways with its integrated 1/4"-20 socket. It has built-in Bluetooth so it can be fully controlled wirelessly with the free NANLINK mobile app, or you can connect it to a DMX network for expanded control options.

Slim Convenient Form Factor
The T8-7X is up to 50% thinner than similar LED tube lights, making it easier to fit into tight spaces. Despite the slimmer design, it still has the same features that make PavoTubes desirable: a CRI of 96 and a TLCI of 97 accuracy, bi-color CCT, RGB, dimming, and effects.
Customizable Pixel Effects
Includes the same 15 practical special lighting effects, and 10 pixel-based lighting effects found in the top-of-the-line PavoTube II X-Series, like rainbow and driving, which mimics the lights that pass by in vehicles. You can customize and save presets in the free NANLINK app.
Handhold or Stand Mount
An integrated handgrip and a 1/4"-20 socket lets you mount the T8-7X to a tripod and other gear, or attach a separately available LSFL floor stand, or an eyebolt to hang. The octagonal end cap shape allows the tube to angle the beam output when on the floor without rolling away.
Easy To Use, Bluetooth and DMX Compatible
T8-7X has 3 analog control buttons for ease of use. The free NANLINK app is also easy to use and provides much deeper control. A separately available USB-C to DMX Cable provides full DMX control through XLR.
Multiple Power Options
The built-in 3.7 VDC, 2200 mAh rechargeable lithium-ion battery lasts for an hour at 100% brightness and 3.5 hours at 10%. A USB-C port allows external batteries to be used. The separately available Nanlite control bank supplies extra battery power, plus more control buttons and an LCD display for greater control.

Would you be able to control multiple of these lights at once via the app? Can you also link the power bank you can use for these?
Asked by: Tim
Yes you can control more than one Nanlite PavoTube T8-7X RGBWW LED Pixel Tube with Nanlink App.. NANLINK app can pair with multiple PavoTube II X-Series lights directly through Bluetooth. Once paired, you can fully control CCT Mode, HSI Mode, G/M Shift, Effects Mode, Pixel Effects Mode, Presets, Quick On/Off, and Console Mode. You can fade the PavoTubes up and down with a tap, and set the fade time from 0 to 10 seconds. You can create scenes and group lights together, which gives you capabilities like the global control of dimming and syncing effects. The Nanlite Control Bank Li-Ion Battery Pack for PavoBulb and PavoTube for power is for one light only.

Yes, but be mindful that the Nanlite PavoTube T8-7X RGB LED Pixel Tube Light are not designed for that type of workflow. We highly suggest using Astera Titans for a more demanding workflow Please review the following link provided https://bhpho.to/3j772pu
