Colour and Control
In terms of comparison products, there are domestic solutions like Philips Hue and LIFX, but neither of them really bridge the gap into photographic lighting. NYX Bulb creates great quality whites with TLCI in the 90s, and offers a high level of control via Bluetooth, the AsteraApp, the PowerStation, or wireless DMX. You can use a portable CRMX controller like the Gaffers Box or Exalux Control One, or set up a transmitter next to your lighting desk and control NYX Bulbs directly from the board – no other fixture in this format has that capability.
The NYX Bulb’s colour rendering is on par with the Titan Tubes. The amber and mint chips enable you to create beautiful greens and yellows, which other LED fixtures can struggle to achieve. They also contribute to the high quality white.
Most often, I’m using NYX Bulbs as a replacement for a traditional bulb that’s in a shot, as opposed to an effect light for a look. NYX Bulbs excel when working on set as a replacement light source in practical lights. On a job, we walk in, look at the practicals the art department have set up, and instead
of going through the drama of putting out dimmers, we will just swap the globes out for NYX Bulbs, and pair them to the app. It’s basically plug ‘n’ play.
