Pioneer of light

10 Years ago, a German brand specialized in Wireless lighting technology launched its first battery powered Event light and took the professional Event lighting industry by storm.

Today, that brand is still among the leaders of the Professional Event Lighting industry as the gap in technological advancement kept on growing, bringing a whole new dimension to Wireless Event Lighting.

From “L” to “X”

With the launch of its X-series, a few years back, Astera confirmed its position of leader in the Wireless Event Industry and Professionals from all around the world have embraced the technology, changing their daily events ways.

“I had a play at the AX5 and was amazed by its new features. It will change everything in the industry.” Benny Coppik, CEO of Art Evolution Service

The wait is over

With a network assembling most of European, North American and Pacific/Asian countries, fans seem to be responding to the call and are patiently waiting for the event.

Anyhow, this is only now a matter of days before we know more and only one phrase comes to mind at this point: BRING IT UP!
