Airstar, a leading provider of inflatable structures and lighting balloons for the event industry, announced the enhancement of its successful Crystal range with the launch of two brand new innovative products – Sunshade and Crystal White 50k lum – at the 2016 LDI Show.
Following a successful pilot test at music festivals in France this summer, Airstar introduces Sunshade to the Crystal range: a large lighting umbrella which transforms the Crystal lighting balloon technology into a new envelope shape. Measuring 2.2 or 2.6 meters in diameter, it features the same RGB LED lights that can be found on the Crystal balloons and is DMX controllable.
In addition to Sunshade, Airstar introduced the Crystal White 50k lumen lighting balloons (available in 130cm, 160cm, and 200cm diameter), which feature innovative LED lamps enabling eight times less power consumption versus halogen technology for the same luminous intensity. In addition, the LED lamps boast a lifetime of 50,000 hours vs 300 hours for halogen.
Crystal White 50k lum is also dimmable, with options including cold white, warm white or daylight that is fully DMX controllable. The Crystal White features an extremely quiet fan to cool the LED engine and is flicker free (tested up to 150 frames per second) making it suitable for use at broadcast events
The Sunshade is currently shipping while the Crystal White 50k lumens will be available worldwide on 7th November 2016.
