Airstar, a French manufacturer of inflatable structures and lighting balloons for the event industry, has announced two new products to its Crystal range – Sunshade and Crystal White 50k lum.
Following a successful pilot test at the Solidays and Musilac music festivals in France this summer, Sunshade is now available to the market. A large lighting umbrella, it transforms the Crystal lighting balloon technology into a new envelope shape. Measuring 2.2 or 2.6 metres in diameter, it features the same RGB LED lights and is DMX controllable.
At Solidays, Sunshades were deployed as decorative party tables, tailored to the needs of the festival. Rigged on a 2.75m high structure, they were weighted by a 200kg base hidden by a cover. Five were situated backstage for the artists, as well as the VIP terrace and the VIP bar, and they complemented the placement of Airstar lighting balloons used for public signage, security and backstage across the festival.
In addition to Sunshade, the Crystal White 50k lumens lighting balloons (available in 130, 160 and 200cm diameter) also feature LED lamps. Crystal White 50k lum is dimmable, with options including cold white, warm white or daylight, and fully DMX controllable. In addition, the product features an extremely quiet fan to cool the LED, rendering it almost silent. It is also flicker free making it suitable for use at broadcasted events.
