A new era

What is digital light?

Think of it like a very mini, very powerful projector. But instead of producing a continuous stream of images (video) at a mediocre brightness, it produces a single digital image at extreme brightness.Allowing the photographer to digitally project any digital image, colour, gradient or pattern, instantly.

Your photography bag just got a lot lighter

1) Direct and Precise Control

Traditional softboxes diffuse light, spreading it over a scene or subject to soften shadows and reduce harshness. The Pixelbeam, however, uses advanced algorithms to control light distribution digitally. This means you can achieve the same soft, diffused lighting effect—or any other effect—precisely where you need it, without physically moving or adjusting fabric diffusers.

2) Versatility and Efficiency

Whereas a softbox is a physical object that needs to be manually adjusted and can only soften light, the Pixelbeam can instantly adjust its output to mimic a range of lighting accessories, from a softbox to a spotlight, and even color filters. This adaptability allows photographers to experiment with different lighting effects on the fly, without changing physical setups.

3) Customisation and Creativity

Photographers can not only recreate the broad, diffused light of a softbox but also customise the quality of light in ways that are impossible with traditional tools. Want softer light on the face but sharper shadows on the background? Pixelbeam makes it possible with a few simple adjustments in its control interface.

4) Space and Convenience

Softboxes and other traditional lighting modifiers can be bulky and require significant space for storage and use. The Pixelbeam, being a compact and standalone unit, reduces the physical footprint of your lighting gear, making it easier to work in tight spaces or on location.
