The Real Deal on Tri LED club lights

PDFPrintE-mail

 

The Real Deal on Tri LED club lights

LED lighting technology is improving at an increasingly rapid pace. DMX 512 compatible club lights are also becoming more affordable and sophisticated. A newer LED technology is becoming available in lower cost fixtures such as the Blizzard Lighting Puck 3.

So, what are “Tri LEDs”?

It simply means that instead of each color in a LED lamp being produced by a separate element or diode, the diode itself is capable of producing all three colors.

 

Tri LED Club Lights

Here are some of the benefits:

No Color Shadowing

Having separate diodes can create shadows of different colors because they are sourced from a slightly different location on the fixture. A Tri LED sources from the same diode so there are no shadows produced.

Superior Color Mixing

Because the light leaves the lens at the same time and same place, the lens becomes a solid, already mixed color. It also makes the visual look of the front of the light better because all you can see is the final mixed color, not the separate red, green and blue elements.

Compact and usually Brighter

Because you don't need as much space to put multiple colors, you end up with a more compact LED fixture. And you can fit more of the tri LEDs in the same space, usually resulting in a brighter club light.

What are the key takeaways from this article:

  • Tri LED club lights are superior to separate diode fixtures

  • No multicolor shadowing

  • They have better color mixing

Top 5 Reasons NOT to use LED Lighting Applications

 

LED Lighting Applications


1. You like paying for replacement bulbs.

LED lighting lasts tens of thousands of hours meaning no bulb replacement costs. They are also very shock resistant and will not get damaged from moderate shocks that would shatter or damage standard bulbs.


2. You like waiting around after the gig for your conventional lights to cool before you can pack them up and get home.

LED club lights don't get hot, just warm in most cases and can be struck and packed immediately after powering down.


3. You like sucking up the juice.

Conventional fixtures require a larger amount of power for the same brightness. Not to mention larger power feeder cables and distro. An average DJ effects or band LED club lights system uses less power than even a single 15 amp standard outlet.


4. You enjoy hauling around heavy lights.

Generally, LED club lights are lighter than their conventional counterparts. That means you can fit more on the truss or stand. A single person can set up and tear down a substantial system by themselves.


5. You love having your conventional par cans produce only one color.

How about LED effects lights that can produce almost any color imaginable at any time? And each LED par fixture in a bank a different color? The flexibility this provides gives almost unlimited design potential.


The Easy Choice

LED club lights don't burn through bulbs, stay cool to the touch, are energy efficient, light weight and versatile. There are more models becoming available. They are getting brighter and cheaper all the time. The LED future is bright!

Top 5 Reasons To Uplight with Pucks

 

 

The Puck LED Lighting

 

 

  1. Pucks lay flat on the floor.

    They keep a very low profile if needed. Since the cables attach in a recessed area, you can position your club lights completely flat if you want to.

  2. They can be stand mounted or angled on the floor.

    With their integrated dual yokes, positioning of this LED light is easy and built right in.

  3. Pucks are bright but draw very little power.

    Super bright - The Puck 3 draws only 35 watts. Compare that to a 300 watt halogen!

  4. Versatility.

    They can produce almost limitless LED colors and combinations. You can match to any color scheme required in a venue.

  5. They are affordable.

    With a MAP of $129 for RGB, $169.99 for RGBA and $199.99 for Tri color, you can have club lights all over for a relatively small investment.
