The Cue Company gets PROLIGHTS Astra Wash7Pix

Australia’s The Cue Company has recently purchased fourteen PROLIGHTS Astra Wash7Pix.

“It just seems to hit every single mark,” said Rob Ness. “It’s a go-to fixture with every selling point you can imagine right now – all at a great price!”

Ness particularly likes that the Astra Wash7Pix has the same LED chips as other leading manufacturers.

“We wanted a fixture that would match other manufacturer’s fixtures and we found that going with a name-brand LED chip inside of the unit helps us match it with other units out there,” he said.

As well as more obvious features such as compact size, speed, brightness, pixel control and multiple on-board FX, Rob likes the versatility the 4° to 56° zoom range offers and of course, quiet operation is a bonus in a studio setting.

“They are extremely useful for a bit of backlight and keylight during filming and streaming,” commented Ness. “It’s easy to get into the menu system and change the LED chip frequency which is a huge pain in the butt with other manufacturers’ products. In fact, PROLIGHTS has made it very simple to get in and around the menu, a lot faster than anything else I’ve ever used. We have already saved significant time on menu use looking for settings, then trying to replicate that per fixture.
