Astera’s AC4 is an advanced LED controller that can handle a range of protocols and control up to 1000 lightsources. It can process inputs from light-control software and Astera’s remote controls but can also control lightsources with its own built-in effects. For an easy navigation among its functions and for addressing of the lamps, the AC4 has a control panel with display.
