Astera Introduces ProjectionLens

Astera has unveiled the ProjectionLens for the PlutoFresnel, which transforms the LED into a powerful profile spotlight. The lightweight, portable PlutoFresnel operates wirelessly with a built-in battery pack. Slipping on the ProjectionLens makes it a profile spotlight with a range of 16-36 degrees. Projection zoom can be controlled manually by twisting the lens barrel or two focus wheels. An E-size gobo holder also enables custom logo projection. Follow Astera on Facebook and Instagram.
