A combination which is everything but common – Eurolite’s new Pixel Panel combines the latest technology, solid, elegant workmanship and a fair price. At London’s PLASA the chic, black light effect with tricolor LEDs makes if first appearance on the market.
Right at first glance one difference to many LED displays or walls becomes quite obvious. In contrast to widespread bar systems, where the LEDs are placed on small strips with emptiness in between, the Pixel Panel presents an alternative. Eurolite deliberately opted for a fully covered housing. The tricolor LEDs are fixed at little openings, only a few millimeters in size. In so doing, the light can exit unhindered and produce its full power. Thanks to the large black surface area, the panel is an eye-catcher, even without illumination.
The technical side is striking as well. Equipping a panel with 16 highly modern and powerful tricolor LEDs (SMD 5050) marks a premiere for Eurolite. The multichip technology, where the LEDs close ranks and light escapes through a collective lens, guarantees a homogeneous color mixture, even at short distances. The colors are concentrated and therefore seem to be more saturated. At the same time, the Tricolor LEDs do mix a pure white, impossible to create with conventional RGB LEDs.
As every LED can be controlled separately numerous configuration options arise. One panel occupies 48 DMX channels that is why a control software such as Madrix can be recommended.
Installation is really simple. When the plastic board is removed, the base can be screwed onto the respective surface.
The panels weigh 1.5 kg, measure only 25 x 25 cm and can thus be used very individually. The more panels linked to form a bigger surface, the more impressive the effect becomes of course.
But where should the panels be used? Everywhere a surface (square, long drawn-out rectangle etc.) needs illumination with strong colors and many variations. As permanent installation in bars, lounges, cafes or clubs, or in front of a DJ booth, for mobile use (wedding DJs etc.) makes perfect sense too.
