Showtec has introduced six new items within their line of Pixel products. The Pixel Panel 1024 is a 64x16 RGB LED-matrix panel, the Pixeltube 32 and Pixeltube 16 are RGB LED tubes with black frosted covers, and the Pixel Bubble 75 set is an RGB-LED-ball matrix with five strings, which can be extended up to 6 metres each with Pixel Bubble Extension Strings. The Pixel Dot is a single 3-W RGB LED, intended for but not limited to fixed ceiling installation. All of them offer individual pixel control, meaning you can adjust each ‘pixel’ independently – even within the Pixel Panel 1024.
The Pixel Panel 1024 offers an impressive amount of individually controllable RGB LEDs: 1024 in a matrix of 64 by 16. For this, you need 3076 channels of Art-Net. With 30 presets, stand-alone operation is also an option, as are eight-channel control through DMX, Art-Net, and Kling-Net, master/slave control, and manual control through an OLED display on the back. A flexible rigging system and removable black frosted cover are included.
The Pixeltube 32 and Pixeltube 16 house 32 respectively 16 1-watt RGB LEDs, which can be individually controlled by DMX, Art-Net, and Kling-Net through Showtec’s dedicated Pixel Controller, a universal controller capable of driving the Showtec Pixelstrip 20 and 40, the Pixeltube 16 and 32, and the Pixel Dot, by switching between modes.
Up to five metres of Pixeltube can be daisy chained. Pixeltube 16 and 32 can be mixed and used in any configuration, as long as you don’t exceed the five-metre-per-output limit. They come with a black frosted cover and rigging system which allows easy attachment to truss or 50-mm pipe without the need for tools.
Showtec’s new Pixel Dot is a single 3-watt, 50-mm RGB LED with a white frosted cover for fixed (ceiling) installation. It is controlled through Showtec’s Pixel Controller and can be daisy chained up to 40 units per Pixel Controller output. Its spring clips make installation as easy as installing an ordinary recessed ceiling spot.
The Showtec Pixel Bubble 75 set consists of a control bar with built-in power supply and five string outputs. Included are 15 one-metre-long strings, each with five white frosted 5-cm “bubbles”, totalling 75 individually controllable RGB LED balls.
