Quasar Science has announced the global launch of its latest linear LED lighting instruments, the Rainbow 2 and Double Rainbow tubular LED lights. The units feature multiple individually controllable pixels for both white light and saturated colors. The slim Rainbow 2 (R2) is available in three lengths (2’, 4’ or 8’) featuring a single row of 10, 24 or 48 pixels, while the Double Rainbow (RR) is uniquely configured with two rows of pixels totalling 20 or 48 across two sizes (2’ or 4’). A newly developed color engine produces dramatically more accurate colors and control. Both the RR and R2 luminaires feature Quasar’s RGBX Spectral Science Color Engine (RGBX SSCE) using more than one quintillion diode combinations, producing greater than one billion unique colors.
Another industry first is the Spectrum Control feature which grants the ability to choose the spectral quality of any color point the lights can produce. 100% on this parameter gives the optimal spectrum for that color, and 0% gives the spikiest RGB-only spectrum. Networking capabilities are addressed with new Rainbow Series communications hardware. Rainbow fixtures accept every industry-standard wired and wireless protocol including DMX, CRMX, W-DMX, Bluetooth, sACN and Art-Net, providing advanced networking architecture with no need for additional data boxes, receivers, or transmitters. The R2 has a built-in Ethernet Node, expanding data versatility while the RR is equipped with both an Ethernet Node and a Network Switch creating a whole new universe of possibilities. Rainbow 2 and Double Rainbow fixtures are available to order now from Quasar Science dealers.
Our DCS interview with Steven Strong of Quasar Science includes more details of their latest lighting technology. In addition to the Double Rainbow, he presents an LED Ladder system, Multi-light Kits, built-in wireless DMX control, and new firmware to add X-Y coordinate spectral control to precisely match other lights: https://vimeo.com/617303477
