Discover the Vortex8 Soft (V8S), the 2x1 LED lighting system for professionals seeking versatility and quality. As the softer sibling to the Vortex8 hard panel, it's designed with the same build-quality and user-friendly interface, integrating an RRGBBW colour engine, power supply, and antennas into a sleek, robust design.

  • Customisable Arrays: Vortex Softs can be mixed with Vortex hard panels using LNX and other mounting systems.
  • On the Go: A 48V DC power input means you can go battery powered when on location, and an IP65 rating ensures you'll stay lit even when the storms roll in.
