''The Showtec LED Octostrips are a nice addition within a studio setting. In addition, they are easy to connect and control via DMX or Art-net.''
This is also the opinion of light designer Jeroen van Geffen, who uses the Octostrips in the setting of'De Vooravond’ (The Eve), the daily talk show of Dutch broadcasterBNNVARA. He used 8 sets of Octostrips in the‘Westergasfabriek Studios’ in Amsterdam, each consisting of 8 strips. The technique and lighting was provided by ChainandRent-All.
The LED Octostrip MKII is the successor of the popular Octostrip. This set is completely Plug and Play, and consists of 8 LED strips, a controller and XLR extension cables of 5 meters. The new LED Octostrip MKII can control the 8 separate RGB sections of each strip, with corresponding dimmer and strobe settings. The controller supports the Art-Net protocol allowing the device to be used in full RGB mode (192 channels).
The LED Octostrips MKII are available in 50cm and 100cm.
