NANLITE PavoTube II X and NANLINK App Released

NANLITE PavoTube II X and NANLINK App Released

Nanlite has just released the second generation of their famous PavoTube LED lights: the PavoTube II X. This second generation is available in 2’/60cm and 4’/120cm lengths like its predecessor, but the company introduced a new giant 8’/240cm version! The Nanlite PavoTube II X also feature a Pixel Control mode with 15 built-in effects modes for more control and versatility. In addition, you’ll be able to control these LED tubes – as well as other Nanlite/Nanlux fixtures – with the new Nanlink App.

Three years ago, Nanlite launched the PavoTube 15C/30C LED RGB tube lights at a very aggressive price point. These tubes have been very popular amongst indie filmmakers. Last year, the company introduced the smaller version PavoTube II 6C for those looking for an affordable and compact accent light.

To make a great product even better, Nanlite has just introduced yet another version of its PavoTubes: the PavoTube II X.

NANLITE PavoTube II X features

The Nanlite PavoTubes II X are available in three different versions: the PavoTube II 15X, which is 2’/60cm long, the 30X, which is 4’/120cm, and the big 60X that tips the scale with a length of 8’/240cm! Here is a quick recap of everything new compared to their predecessor:

  • The PavoTube II X are now RGBWW LED tubes, compared to RGB “only” for the previous ones. In short, the new ones can replicate up to 36.000 colors.
  • This new generation can go from 2700K to 12.000K with green/magenta adjustment.
  • In terms of color accuracy, they still have an excellent CRI of 97 and TLCI of 98.
  • The PavoTube II X still features a built-in battery. According to Nanlite, the enhanced battery can run the LED tube for 29 hours at 1%. At full power, you can run the tubes for around 2 hours. The recharging time goes from 3 to 5.5 hours.
  • There is a new Pixel Control mode, which allow you to control the light coming out of different parts of the tube. This is the same kind of feature found in the “industry-standard” Astera tubes.
  • You can control the PavoTube II X via the controls at the back of the fixture. Also, they now support DMX, RDM, Bluetooth, and 2.4G wireless control.

As you can tell, that’s quite a few improvements! Also, the adjustment knob found on the previous version has been replaced by the power inputs. The light controls are now at the back of the fixture, next to the display.

The PavoTube II X features three 1/4″-20 mounting points: two horizontal and one vertical.

NANLINK App

These days, any LED light comes with its own iOS/Android app. Nanlite already had an app, which was ok, but they just released the first version of their new NANLINK App, which allows you to control your PavoTube II X wirelessly.

This new NANLINK App will allow you to control all your existing Nanlite fixtures wirelessly, group them, launch presets, and so on. Here is every feature you can control via the App:

  • CCT and HSI modes.
  • Effect and Pixel effect modes.
  • Quick on/off.
  • Presets.
  • Console mode.

If you have older Nanlite fixtures, the company introduced a transmitter box (WS-TB-1). This box has a built-in battery and looks very compact and lightweight.
