Digital Sputnik's Voyager is a smart light solution with a built-in animation engine

Digital Sputnik’s LED systems cut back on infrastructure and overhead to allow creative teams to focus on visual storytelling and the creation of compelling images. Their Voyager LED tube is a smart light solution with onboard animation controller, built-in battery, and waterproof enclosure. You can connect and control multiple units together, using your phone as the interface.
Voyager is said to be the next step in Digital Sputnik’s product range, with the full feature set packed into a small fixture. Whereas current light controller boards need a technician to address every light manually, with Voyager the software can autodetect fixtures on the set. You can map out your lighting setup by just pointing your phone, change the color, introduce a color gradient across the tube, and modify animation sequences. Voyager can also be used fully submerged up to two meters for short time periods (30 minutes).

The LED tube is ideal for photos, both social media images and professional stills photography. A single operator workflow is made much simpler with all the light controls at your fingertips. The animation feature can be used for long exposure takes and Voyager has a manual flash function.

The DS line fixtures have been used as the main lighting tool on some of the highest grossing motion pictures in the world, redesigning the lighting workflow into a portable and more affordable toolset. They have been used on movies including Star Wars: Rogue One, Furious 8, Ghost in the Shell, and Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 2.

Digital Sputnik is currently raising funds for Voyager on Indiegogo, where they have already passed their $300,000 goal. The units come in both 2ft and 4ft versions, with prices starting at $290 for a 2ft Voyager smartlight set with quick-release mount and a battery charger. You can check out the smart light solution in the video below:
