About Astera PlutoFresnel

Fresnels made Portable
Astera's PlutoFresnel is an exceptional solution for film, studio, and event lighting. PlutoFresnel boasts an impressive output comparable to a traditional 300W Tungsten Fresnel. With a beam angle of 15 Degree to 60 Degree without color fringing, wireless and wired DMX control, these lights offer impressive performance while consuming only 80W. Easy to mount and adjust with removable handles and YokeBases, they enhance creativity and productivity on any set.

Astera Titan LED Engine
• RGB+Mint+Amber Full Spectrum
• 1750K-2000OK Wide CCT Range
• TLCI/CRI Ra > 96 Excellent Color Rendering from 3200K to 6500K
• RGB, HSI, X, Y & Filter Gels

Built-In Battery - 3 hours on MAX Runtime
Unlike traditional Fresnels, this light has a built-in battery that lasts 3 hours displaying white colors on MAX Brightness. When a longer operation is needed, you can set the Seamless Runtime setting up to 20 hours. For longer installations, PlutoFresnel can be connected to 24V DC power.

External Battery Option - With Runtime Extender
For a longer operational time, a Runtime Extender with V-Mount or Gold Mount battery can be connected. The light's Yoke is designed to attach this device easily. External batteries can charge the light's internal battery. You can use either 14.4V or 26V batteries.

Zoomable Fresnel
This next generation Fresnel lens works in conjunction with a light pipe that is built into the fixture. It creates an even beam with steep fall-off and no chromatic aberration or color fringing. The manual zoom ranges from 15 Degree - 60 Degree and allows it to be operated as spotlight, washlight and anything in between.

Included with each light is a eight-leave Barndoor. Its specific design leads to ultra-clean cuts; the edges stay razor sharp when shaping your beam.

Open Face
For additional versatility, the Fresnel lens can be slid out after opening its lock. This gives you a wider beam with even crisper shadows.

Projection Lens
A custom-built projection lens with 16 Degree -36 Degree zoom, manual focus and 4 shutters. Turn your PlutoFresnel into a profile that also allows you to insert E size Gobos.

Easy Mounting

Folding Legs
Simply fold out the 2 legs and place the light on the floor. This allows fast operation and enables creative new lighting techniques.

Airline Tracks
We have included our popular Airline Tracks on each of the 4 sides. This is where you can attach the YokeBase as well as other Astera accessories such as TrackHandle, TrackPin etc.

Yoke Quick-Release
Detach your light within seconds from its Yoke to allow handheld operation.

Detachable YokeBase
The YokeBase attaches to the light's side via airline tracks. Move position if you want to change the light's balance or remove it altogether.

Removable Handle
Our TrackHandle can be inserted into the light's airline track to carry it around or adjust its position during operation. It can be removed whenever it isn't needed.

TVMP Adapter
With each light we ship a standard TVMP Adapter that is intended to be connected to the light's Yoke so it can be attached to stands and grips.

Runtime Extender Mount
The light's Yoke contains a mounting point for Astera's Runtime Extender. This allows you to attach external batteries.

How To Control

App Control
AsteraApp offers intuitive and fast control of complex lighting setups and is also used for preparation and monitoring of our lights.

Wireless DMX
All Astera lights contain a wireless DMX module by LumenRadio, enabling them to be controlled by CRMX and W-DMX transmitters alongside other wireless fixtures. The AsteraBox has built-in CRMX and can be used to transmit DMX data to your lights.

Wired DMX
Data can be added via DataLink, a data injector for the PlutoFresnel with power pass-through. Connect up to 4 Power Supplies, add DMX, Artnet or SACN and connect up to 4 PlutoFresnels with Titan Power/Data Combination Cables.

On Your Light
The control panel offers intuitive control over your light. Dedicated buttons offer swift control over brightness and HSI colors.

Controllable Fan

Adjustable Fan Speed
Super silent fan that can be set to 3 fixed speeds and can also be turned off completely. The light does not immediately adjust its power level, instead it monitors its temperature and only turns down brightness if it overheats. This enables you to shoot for a short time in complete silence.

With its scrambled PWM technology, lights with Titan LED Engine will not cause flickering when filming with standard frame rates. Recordings with high-speed cameras are possible but might not work under all conditions. Test before you shoot.

Green/Magenta Correction
To reduce post-production work, Titan LED Engine enables Green/Magenta correction from 0-100 in steps of 1%.

Quickly build programs out of colors and effects, trigger them or make them match a beat. Turn multiple programs and lights into scenes.

Detect all available lights, set them up, check their status, configure DMX addresses and DMX profiles.
