Astera NYX 10W LED Bulb Engine with RGBA

The NYX 10W LED Bulb from Astera has the form factor of a conventional incandescent light bulb, but with the versatility of a bi-colour LED light source paired with an RGBA light engine capable of millions of available colours and intensities. Hue and saturation control are provided by red, green, blue, and amber chips, plus the addition of a mint chip for an extended tonal range.

The NYX bulb may be controlled wirelessly via the free Bluetooth app, CRMX, and UHF control when using the accessory wireless modules, available separately. The E26/E27 base allows it to be used in any standard light socket or lamp base, and it may also be operated using DC power sources. The cool-running bulb is fan-less and silent, and its compact form factor allows it to be placed in small spaces where other lights can’t fit.

Astera PowerStation with Built-In Battery

Designed for the NYX LED bulb, the PowerStation with Built-In Battery from Astera acts as a remote display to make settings such as colour temperature, effects, and brightness that the bulb will display when connected to a powered lamp socket or PowerStation. The PowerStation will also display DMX addresses and settings that the bulb will then store in its memory. The PowerStation has a rear magnet for easy mounting and an airline track to attach mounting accessories.

Astera CupBouncers for NYX Bulbs

Designed as accessories for several bulbs, each CupBouncer for NYX Bulb (8-pack) from Astera fits on top of a bulb using suction. The top of each CupBouncer has a flat “hat” that catches vertically emitted light and fans it out horizontally to expand the bulb’s beam angle.
