Classic ShowLED Star Drops are the favorite choice when ease of use and plug & play capabilities are the top priority. They were developed to be durable, lightweight and flexible. Multiple LEDs cast a bright, wide-angle diffused cool white/blue starlight through frosted, nearly unbreakable LEDs that allow for easy replacement or removal. The layout can be a realistic night sky or custom patterns of your own design. The LEDs are easily controlled for effects like patterns of twinkling, speed of chase and intensity. Simply plug in the Roadstar Controller in stand-alone mode and immediately see a twinkling night sky, making a few simple adjustments for the perfect starlight effect. The Roadstar Controller is also versatile enough to run through a complex DMX-triggered cue sequence programmed into a lighting control board. Controllers can easily be linked to control several curtains joined together into a very large drop with a single control. These star drops have a very wide viewing angle and perform especially well on camera.
Ask about our small-scale ShowLED Classic as well, which can save you a bundle. The small-scale ShowLED Classic Star Drop curtains are available in curtain sizes up to 128 sq. feet and work with a maximum of 64 LEDs. They come with a mini-controller, enabling a limited set of features that are perfectly appropriate for curtains of modest size. The mini-controller enables 4 preset star drop chase patterns and the ability to adjust chase speed and light intensity.
ShowLED originated as a set of components to attach to a variety of materials including wood, metal, glass, cardboard, stonework, PVC and all smooth-surfaced fabrics. Its versatility makes it possible to install stars in costumes, floors, walls or ceilings and then later remove them for reuse in other projects.
