The new PixelStorm COB from Blizzard Lighting
The new PixelStorm COB from Blizzard Lighting

The new PixelStorm COB from Blizzard Lighting is designed to bring a whimsical touch to lighting rigs. The 1-meter-long LED fixture features 12x 25-watt high output RGBAW COB LEDs to create intensely bright color washes and chase patterns. The RGBAW LEDs increase the color gamut of the fixture while decreasing shadow pixilation. Additionally, each of the LEDs is individually controllable so designers can produce chase effects, and then increase those effect by linking multiple PixelStorm COB fixtures together to create large-scale matrixes using its built-in color chase, strobe, and color-mixing effects. Its DMX jacks are wiCICLE-enabled, which means they can be  powered via DMX, eliminating the need for power runs.
