Wireless DMX (2.4GHz)
LumenRadio for film light
The AsteraBox works as a wireless DMX transmitter; just connect it with the included XLR adapter to your DMX console and you can transmit 1 DMX universe with CRMX technology, the most stable wireless DMX protocol available.
Compatibility of film lights
We included the most reliable wireless DMX module on the market compatible with CRMX and other wireless DMX standards but not W-DMX G5 and City Theatrical.
IR Remote Control
Simple commands like ON/OFF, colors, preloaded effects etc can be sent with our infrared remote control directly to the lights.
When programming lights with the AsteraApp the IR remote can be used for confirming settings on individual lights.
It is an efficient tool to wire your LED Lighting Film Tube during jobs with power and data whenever you don’t want to use them wirelessly. In addition, the PowerBox can be stored inside the Helios and Titan Tube Charging case so you can charge your tubes after a job inside the case without having to remove tubes or PowerBox.
This device has an Powercon True1 input and output and a 5-pin XLR input and output. Furthermore it has an RJ45 port for Art-Net and sACN and converts the signals to DMX.
Up to 10 Titan Tubes can be connected to each PowerBox with a special power+data cable. The maximum cable length is 15m.
The PowerBox is designed to be placed on a floor or hung in a truss. It has a 3/8” thread that can be removed to allow 1/2” clamps to be attached (same as AX5). In addition, it has holes for safety leashes.
