Announcing the RR, R2, Swaptics, & RAIL Mounting System

RR Linear LED Lights

The new RR Linear LED Lights are elegant, compact and filled with incredible features. This sleek new design advances Quasar’s tubular form factor by doubling the width but retaining the low-profile shape that gets the RR into all the same tight spaces as legacy Quasar lights. The RR is offered in two lengths: RR100 at 46 in/117 cm and RR50 at 23 in/59 cm.

Affectionately dubbed the “Double Rainbow,” the RR has two rows of pixels expanding the animation and FX capabilities into a whole new realm, ideal for process car work and special lighting effects. The RR50 packs in 24 pixels, and the RR100 features 48 separate pixels. All with pixel selection to give the user maximum control.

Introducing the R2

The Rainbow has upped its game – Introducing the R2, the sequel to the original Rainbow Linear LED Light. This design adds a plethora of new features, while keeping the same sleek, sturdy low-profile shape as all the legacy Quasar products you have grown to love. The R2 is offered in three lengths: Q100R2 at 91 in/232 cm, Q50R2 at 47 in/120 cm and Q25R2 at 23 in/59 cm.

We are now offering multi-pixel control without compromising the clean color or high output that we have always been known for. The Q25 offers 12 pixels, the Q50R2 has 24 pixels, and the Q100R2 allows for 48 separate pixels.

Features for both RR and R2

Both the RR and R2 feature onboard universal AC power 100-240VAC and auxiliary DC input from 10-26 volts.  Color always comes first at Quasar Science, so our RGBx technology enables our lights to score an SSI rating of between 76 (daylight), and 91(Tungsten), and a CRI/TLCI score of 95+. Dimming is just as important as maintaining the brightness Quasar has always lived up to. Improved low end dimming gets these lights closer to a true 1% than ever before.

We have held onto our wireless DMX through LumenRadio, while adding sACN, Artnet, and the ability to be controlled wirelessly through CRMX, Wifi, and Bluetooth, which gives you the broadest choices for data connectivity.

The QS Pixel Control Software

Our QS Pixel Control Software inside each lamp has been completely rewritten from the ground up, offering you unparalleled control of the lamp. It includes over 20 pre-built effects and macros, such as Rainbow, Short Circuit, customizable Emergency Lights and much more.  Each pixel can be controlled independently, or grouped together. With DMX profiles expanding into crazy amount of channels, the lamp can also operate as a single pixel when needed.

The Swaptics™ Interchangeable Lens System

Also available as an optional accessory is our new Swaptics™ Interchangeable Lens System. The slim diffusor (included with the lights) and two swappable lenses, the Light Barrel™large diffuser and the Light Magnifier™ projection lens, are available for purchase.

The RAIL™ Mounting System

We have upped the caliber for rigging with the RAIL™ Mounting System, giving you the most versatility of any rigging system yet. In collaboration with Key Grip and Hardware Designer, Chuck Smallwood of G-Force Grips, both the RR and R2 lights include the QS Slider to mount anywhere along the back of the light and the QS Baby Pin to attach onto your slider.

We know how important efficiency is on set, so we have designed an onboard rigging system.

Straight out of the box, you will be able to rig your Quasars. No more buying additional clamps or metal clips. Both the RR and R2 will come standard with a mounting rail down the back of the light, lined with 1/4-20 mounting points.

Two attachments will come with the purchase of each light. The first is the QS Slider, which allows you to slide the rigging point anywhere along the plane of the linear light. The second is the QS Baby Pin to mount to the QS Slider or directly to the rail itself.

We are offering two additional accessories for the RAIL™ Mounting System that are sold separately. The QS Rotator Block allows you rotate the light 360 degrees on any mounted 5/8” or 3/8” pin or rod. We are also offering an attachment to rig your V-Mount batteries onto the light for any run and gun type filming. Keeping an external battery enables easy battery changes.  Once you experience the ease of rigging and positioning with the RAIL™ mounting system, you’ll never want to go back.
