More Ways To Shine! Increase Your Creative Options With Our Expanded Nexus Series

Posted on January 6, 2014

Our Nexus 4×4 enjoyed quite a “rookie year” in 2013, showcasing its vibrant colors and intense brightness at major events like The Voice, The American Country Awards, One Direction’s Central Park performance on Good Morning America and more.  Along the way, our RGBW LED blinder/wash picked up a prestigious 2013 Parnelli Award for Indispensable Technology in the lighting category.

So what do we do for an encore? Simple, we’ve expanded our Nexus Series to offer you more ways to shine than ever with insanely bright light, rich saturated colors, warm whites and scalable pixel mapping.

Like the ground breaking Nexus 4×4, all of our new Nexus products are controllable by Art-Net, Kling-Net or DMX protocol, making it easier for you build massive lighting arrays without worrying about addressing each fixture individually.

Our new Nexus products include the Nexus 4×1, a 4-cell linear panel and the Nexus 2×2, a smaller square shaped panel version of the original 4×4. The two newcomers are powered by 27-watt (2A) COB (Chip On Board) LEDs, just like the Nexus 4×4 — and like the original, both also feature an advanced Chauvet reflector design that takes brightness to new levels of intensity. Linked together with the 4×4, the two new Nexus products make it easier to create a wide array of geometric patterns to add extra dimensions to your lighting designs.

We’ve also introduced two Nexus Affinity products, the Nexus Aq 5×5 and Nexus Aw 7×7, penetratingly bright narrow beam panels that excel as blinders, but can also be used to display text and animated graphics. Our 5×5 is powered by 25 10-watt RGBW LEDS and features an 8° beam angle; while the 7×7 has 49 3-watt warm white LEDs and a 7° beam angle.

As is true of all Nexus products, the new Nexus Aq 5×5 and Nexus Aw 7×7 are controllable by Art-Net, Kling-Net and DMX protocols to give you greater flexibility in designing shows.  Each Nexus product can be remotely accessed from any web server through its unique IP address. This allows you to do things like update software and calibrate colors remotely online.

The unique interlocking system on the Affinity products makes it easy to align them horizontally or vertically, which significantly reduces set-up time. Using an optional Affinity Rig Kit (sold separately), you can hang up to 16 fixtures together, making it easier to create bigger, bolder and brighter shows than ever – which when you get right down to it is what the Nexus Series is all about!
