Osram Launches Customizable LED Node Solution with Remote Device Management, Ideal for High-Brightness Lighting and Media Applications


The Dot XLQ-8 RGBW allows replay of stunning color effects, complex lighting patterns, video content, live streams and more, with precise color effects using more than 16.7 million colors. As each node is individually autoaddressed and controlled via DMX or E:pix, this innovative lighting solution is ideal for applications requiring flexible installation and intelligent control as well as high brightness and efficacy. The Dot XLQ-8 has double the lumens per watt and triple the luminous flux of its predecessor, making it an ideal solution for elaborate lighting designs and environments.


The system supports DMX, with RDM and direct Ethernet communication, for system configuration, programming and convenient monitoring of the installation. White algorithms automatically generate four colors (RGBW) per node from a standard three-channel RGB video signal, providing greater display brightness and quality over conventional RGB video nodes.


“We take pride in helping lighting designers and architects create unique, vibrant lighting environments that deliver a truly memorable experience,” said Dwight Kitchen, General Manager of Traxon North America for Osram Lighting Solutions. “Our latest RGBW media dot solution is flexible, highly customizable and supports remote device management, a key differentiator from other LED nodes on the market.”


Mounted on a flexible string, the Dot XLQ-8 accommodates a variety of irregular shapes and surfaces, making it compatible with virtually any type of lighting configuration in a variety of applications, including architectural, hospitality, retail and entertainment industries. UV-resistant and designed to withstand the elements, it is a reliable solution for both indoor and outdoor installations. With the sustainability benefits inherent in LEDs, Dot XLQ-8 RGBW also delivers energy efficiency, reduced maintenance and electricity costs, durability, and long source life.


The new Dot XLQ-8 RGBW delivers flexibility, ease of control and remote device management for stunning full-color lighting in applications of all sizes. For more information about the latest in media and facade lighting innovations, please visit Traxon Technologies, an Osram brand.
