UK LED manufacturer CORE Lighting expands its range of innovative wireless LED technology with the StripPoint battery powered LED batten which joins the current range of robust products.
The trend and demand for good quality wireless LED fixtures for all types of events continues to grow, and CORE’s success capitalises on good design, sharp pricing and bringing the right product to the market at the right time. Right now, there is plenty of interest in the stability of UK made products and the excellent technical support for which CORE is known.
The 1 metre long StripPoint unit features 18 RGBW LEDs that can be pixel-mapped and which emit an impressive 4000 lumens whilst drawing only 75W of power … giving it an expedient carbon footprint.
The colour of each LED cell is also individually controllable with a homogenous mix of 4 colours using Red, Green, Blue & White LEDs, so 72 DMX channels are required to run the unit in ‘wide’ mode, and a selection of stunning effects can be produced as a result.
A number of pre-programmed effects and colours can also be quickly and easily selected.
The colour range is rich and dynamic – from the gentlest of pastels to the deepest saturates, all without any ‘blockiness’. A variable PWM frequency facility eliminates flicker for TV work.
The StripPoint is completely battery powered and can last up to 8 hours in 2-colour rainbow mode. It can be run fully wirelessly via WDMX or even mains powered if preferred.
The fixtures can be recharged from a very neat 4-way flightcase ‘system’ or a stand-alone AC mains cable.
A wireless master / slave option also enables the StripPoint to be run with CORE’s ColourPoint 15, 20, 30 uplighter fixtures or other StripPoints.
An IP65 rating for outdoor use and maximum versatility is another bonus – and an especially useful feature in Europe where the weather can be erratic! A selection of lenses are available to vary the beam angles.
As with all CORE products, the StripPoint is quality engineered in the UK and is compact and light enough at 5Kg to be ensconced in all sorts of discreet places, or hung from trussing, stands and other structures using the feet to attach and angle the unit.
Keenly priced, StripPoint is a great addition to CORE’s constantly developing product range.
The first production StripPoint units were available last month and purchasers so far include event companies such as Production Plus based in Stevenage.
Says CORE’s Phil Ion, “It was a completely logical move to add a complimentary LED batten to our range. Battens are useful in numerous scenarios and many clients were requesting it for wall washing or spectacular visual effects, both indoors and outdoors,” adding that their fixtures are now available from exclusive distributor White Light.
