Aputure INFINIBAR 4-Light Kits and New Accessories Launched – First Look

Aputure recently launched 4-light kits for their PB6 and PB12 two- and four-foot INFINIBAR linear lights, along with a couple of new accessories to power and rig these compact LED lights. The kits come in rolling Pelican-style hard cases with everything you need inside, including a power adapter with a 4-way splitter that can charge all the lights in or out of the case. So, let’s take a closer look at all of these!

In February 2023, Aputure released the INFINIBAR pixel bars, a lineup of linear LED lights consisting of three fixtures: the PB3, which measures 1ft/30cm; the PB6, which measures 2ft/60cm; and the PB12, which measures 4ft/120cm. These RGBWW pixel bars feature a built-in battery. You can control and animate their pixels/lighting zones via the SidusPro app, wireless or wired DMX, but the main advantage is that you can attach and connect multiple lights together to create interesting shapes and larger LED lights. If you want to learn more about the INFINIBAR, my colleague Graham did an in-depth review here.

At launch, the INFINIBAR pixel tubes were available to purchase individually or as an 8-kit option for the two-foot and four-foot versions. During Cine Gear 2024, Aputure announced two new INFINIBAR 4-light kits, which are lighter and more manageable for one-man-band filmmakers to carry.

Aputure INFINIBAR 4-light kits – features

The Aputure INFINIBAR PB6 and PB12 4-light kits are 50% lighter than their 8-light counterparts but still come with everything you need to start shooting right out of the box, including:

  • Four Aputure INFINIBAR PB6 or PB12 pixel tubes.
  • Four light control grids.
  • Eight 1/4″-20 mounting hooks.
  • Four INFINIBAR clamp to baby pin adapters.
  • Four straight connectors so you can attach and rig multiple lights together.
  • All of the power cables and adapters to charge and power the INFINIBARs.
  • A 330W power adapter and a 4-way splitter cable. This allows you to charge all lights simultaneously, outside or inside the case, which is handy.

New Aputure INFINIBAR accessories

Alongside the 4-light kits, Aputure released multiple new accessories for the INFINIBAR ecosystem. If you have numerous INFINIBARs, you’ll be excited by the new Passive Connectors that allow you to create light patterns/shapes.

Aputure introduced three flat connectors: a 3-way, a 4-way, and a 6-way. All connectors include short 5.5mm DC jumper cables to distribute power to your INFINIBAR array.

Next is a small INFINIBAR 1/4″-20 collapsible tripod base to vertically set up your pixel tubes. Talking about rigging, Aputure introduced an INFINIBAR Tilting Mounting Bracket to mount your fixtures to walls via a minimum of two screws, and adjust their tilting angle up to 90°.

Furthermore, two new powering options have been introduced for the INFINIBAR ecosystem. The first one is the 330W power adapter kit, which is included with the 4-light kits and allows you to power and charge up to 20 Aputure INFINIBARs simultaneously.

Lastly, the INFINIBAR Battery Power Station is a 24V V-mount battery solution that can take 14/26/28.8V V-mount batteries and output up to 200W of DC power. This Battery Station allows you to power your INFINIBAR array externally without needing mains power, which will be handy on set.
