4ft Quasar Q-LED - R - Rainbow Linear LED Lamps with RGBX

The new Q-LED Rainbow Linear LED Lamp featuring RGBX can paint your world with vibrant saturated color and illuminate it with powerful white light from our 2000° Candlelight to 6000° Daylight Kelvin. All Rainbow Lamps are equipped with onboard digital interface giving you command of Intensity, Kelvin, Hue & Saturation. Each lamp has a built in Lumen Radio CRMX chip for wireless control. The Rainbow can also be wired to DMX via Cat5 I/O Port. The lamp is Self Ballasted AC input utilizing Neutrik True1 locking connector as well as locking Barrel connector for DC input. Features: X-fade White Light: Crossfading our Candlelight diode (2000k) and Daylight diode (6000k) mixing a balanced variable color spectrum. With independent 2000-6000° diodes we give a full range of high quality broad spectrum light and allow color saturation without the muddy effects of RGB derived white light. Includes Kelvin presets at 2000° (2800°) 3200° 4000° (5000°) 5600° 6000° RGB: A rainbow of color at your finger tips. With a full 360° palette for vibrant fully saturated color or mixed with X-fade white light for soft beautiful pastels. Includes color presets for Blue, Cyan, Green, Yellow, Orange, Red, Magenta, Purple. Low Profile Shape: Easy to hide when space is at a minimum, the slender linear lamps can be mounted tight against a wall or ceiling. Expandable and Scalable: Stack them in a column to create large LED panels of any size, or end to end for long linear lighting sources. Create geometric patterns and 3D structures or spell out words the options are endless. Control Panel: No need to pull out your phone or have a Wi-Fi network. The Rainbow comes equipped with an on-board control panel allowing you to set Intensity, CCT, Saturation, Hue, FX and much more. FX: Onboard effects with adjustable parameters. Including Fire, Police Light, Short Circuit, Paparazzi, Strobe and Rainbow Color Scroll. DMX Port: With DMX I/O, the Rainbow can be wired for DMX data control and passed through for chaining multiple lamps together. Wireless Control: Equipped standard with Lumen Radio CRMX wireless transceivers, Rainbow lamps can be controlled remotely via compatible transmitters. Lead / Follow Mode: Set a master lamp and control all others. Rainbow LED lamps can be set to send or receive commands to and from any other Rainbow making it easy to change the settings of any multi lamp fixture or rig without dialling each lamp. Energy Efficiency: The Rainbow Lamps vastly outperform traditional Quartz, Halogen and HMI lighting sources in luminous output to power consumption ratio. Self Ballasted AC Input: Run a line, RGB-X Rainbow Lamps use 100-265VAC (World Power) via Neutrik True1 connect and do not require troublesome external ballasts, power supplies or data boxes. DC Battery option: Grab a battery, RGB-X Rainbow Lamps can run off of 10-26 VDC via locking 2.1mm x 5.5 barrel connector.

INCLUDES

  • 4x Dimmers

  • Matthews MyWay Plate

OWNER NOTES

The Matthews MyWay Plate is included and holds the quasars together like a kino. Also included are 4 dimmers and 2x 25ft zip cords and 2x 15ft zip cords with multiple outlets.

Features:

X-fade White Light: Crossfade blending of our Candle Light diode (2000k) and our Overcast Daylight diode (6000k) mixing a balanced variable color spectrum.

Low Profile: Easy to hide when space is at a minimum the Q-LED Linear LED lamp can be mounted against a wall or ceiling without compromising framing.

Self Ballasted: Q-LED’s do not require troublesome power supplies or ballasts which often add time when quickly adding a light, get in the way or need to be hidden from camera.

Dimmer Compatible: Compatible with most dimming systems.

Expandable and Scalable: Stack them in a columns and rows to create large LED panels of any size, or end to end for long linear lighting sources. Create geometric patterns and 3D structures.

120vac or 240vac vs. 12vdc: Many modern LED lamps run on 12volt which can be very useful especially on battery packs however 12volts is highly problematic when powering large scale arrays with multiple lights or when needing to cable more then 12 feet / 3 Meters from the power source where line loss effects the output and performance of the LED luminaire.

Energy Efficiency: At 90+ lumens per watt the Q-LED line vastly outperforms Quartz, Halogen, Plasma and HMI lighting sources in the luminous output to power consumption ratio.

Single End Power Input: Providing a clean appearance and easy to cable light without the need for overly complicated wiring looms that become a spiderweb, tangling themselves around stands and costing time and energy to both straighten and dress out of view.

Color:
High CRI: Averaging 95 CRI across the curve our LED diodes produce attractive skin tones and a vibrant color response to the naked eye and on any film or camera sensor.

High TLCI: The new standard in color measuring for motion picture and television lighting, our TLCI readings are some of the highest in the lighting industry guaranteeing maximum performance on any camera.

Length and Wattage:

2' 25 watt - Q25X - .46 Amp at 120v
4' 50 watt - Q50X - .92 Amp at 120v
8' 100 watt - Q100X - 1.84 Amp at 120v

Dustin was awesome! Super communicative and the handoff was smooth.

Phenomenal lens Kit. Contains everything you need for cinematic excellence or guerrilla style run and gun. The kits layout was excellent and easy to read in low light. I would highly recommend it especially if you are looking to see non-cropped glory.

Loved using the kit and it was super clean and organized. Dustin was easy to communicate with and experience was solid.

Excellent equipment, very easy pick up and flexible return.

Amazing set of lenses. Dustin was very responsive and it was easy to communicate with him.

Really effective communicator

Excellent and friendly rental process

Excellent and really communicative process!

Dustin was quick to communicate with and flexible with pickup and drop-off. Would definitely recommend renting with him. I would suggest he gets a pelican case for these nice lenses though and not send them out in the original boxes.
