The amaran PT4c is a 4-foot battery-powered pixel tube that is part of amaran’s first-ever full-color LED pixel tube series. The Pixel Tube series is comprised of a family of 1-foot, 2-foot, and 4-foot lengths – all featuring multiple Pixel FX, RGBWW color quality, Sidus Link app & DMX1 control, and USB-C rechargeable batteries packed into their sleek & slender form factor. At 4 feet in length, the amaran PT4c is an expansive and powerful tube light that adds waves of color to a scene.
Create Your Flow
The amaran PT4c is a 4-foot battery-powered pixel tube for creators and filmmakers. As amaran’s first-ever pixelated tube light, it features multiple pixels, RGBWW color quality, Sidus Link app control, and no-hassle mounting solutions, allowing you to unleash new creative possibilities.
Designed for Creators
The PT4c shines as an effects, fill, eye light, and so much more. Whether used for practical lighting backgrounds, producing unique lighting effects for long-exposure photography, creating linear reflections over intricate sets for product cinematography, or adding visual interest to stylized music videos and commercials, the PT4c grants you the freedom to get creative and bring your lighting designs to life.
Perfect Pixel Capabilities
With 16 lighting zones that can be independently controlled, the PT4c’s pixel capabilities introduce new and exciting avenues to the amaran family and outshine other lights with a new layer of effects. Use its 7 pre-programmed Pixel FX to create some truly unique and dynamic pixelated effects across its multiple pixels and take your creations to the next level.
Amaran consistently delivers stellar color quality with its RGBWW LED chipset, and the Pixel Tubes are no different. Adjust the hue, saturation, and intensity of your pixel light with white point CCT tunability from 2,700K to 10,000K with full plus/minus green controls. And with a CRI of 95, TLCI of 98, and Tungsten SSI of 85, you can be sure that the Pixel Tubes will elevate your productions with accurate colors.
The PT4c is powered by a 77Wh internal Lithium-ion battery for up to 170 minutes of run time, and can be charged via USB-C or even fast charge at 32W with PD Quick Charging, reaching its full capacity in approximately 3 hours. The integrated batteries can improve your workflow on-set by granting you the flexibility of placing or hiding the LED Pixel Tubes virtually anywhere.
Endless Mounting Possibilities
For enhanced versatility, the PT4c is equipped with a 5-sided end cap design, allowing the pixelated light to be positioned at 5 different angles, from 0º to 45º, 90º, 135º, and 180º of rotation. And when attaching the included magnetic T12 brackets or 3/8-16in eye bolt, creating interesting visuals and set pieces have never been easier.
With the power of the Sidus Link Bluetooth app, you can control all of your Aputure and amaran lights in a scene, activate stunning lighting effects, and ensure that the Pixel Tubes are always up to date. For more advanced console controls, the new optional amaran USB-C to DMX Adapter unlocks DMX control while simultaneously charging your pixelated tube light, making your workflow even more efficient and seamless.
Control Your Creations
For creators who want an extra touch of lighting control and to eliminate spill from the PT4c, you can attach the optional, collapsible 45º light control grid via hook-and-loop straps to hone the quality of the light to perfection. The Pixel Tubes can also be left bare with its wide 180° beam angle, giving you more coverage in your shot design.
For filmmakers looking for more lights for in-camera practicals, symmetrical lighting for one or multiple subjects, and twice the output of a standalone fixture, the PT4c 2-Light Production Kit unlocks even more possibilities to enhance your frame, coming fully equipped with additional accessories for all your creative needs.
