Pica Cube 4C & 4CA

Designed by The Black Tank

Release your creative spirit with Pica Cube 4C and 4CA! From wall washes, to accent and mood lighting, the RGBW Pica Cube 4C and RGBA Pica Cube 4CA fixtures offer designers maximum creativity inside a tiny package.

The ultra-compact form factor of the Pica Cube 4C and 4CA makes it an excellent fixture choice for any application that desires colored light from an inconspicuous light source, including stage productions, bars and casinos, retail stores, and themed attractions.

The Pica Cube 4CA features a unique, phosphor- converted amber emitter – not found in any other RGBA fixture this size. This enables it to produce an expanded palette of saturated colors and rich, warm-tones of full-spectrum white light.

Excellent Color Rendering

The high-quality emitters inside the Pica Cube 4C and 4CA LED fixtures make mixing the right color simple. Powered by OSRAM’s newest generation of 4-channel chips, Both the 4C and 4CA fixtures produce consistent, repeatable colored light, and a single, fringe-free shadow.

The white emitter inside the RGBW Pica Cube 4C allows designers to de-saturate their hues to create a wide variety of saturated, mid-tone and pale tint colors, and an excellent range of white light color temperatures.

The specially formulated, phosphor-converted Amber emitter inside the RGBA Pica Cube 4CA offers a broader spectrum than other RGBA fixtures. This unique chipset provides a color gamut that includes rich warm-tones, and a warm white light that features a full color spectrum and high CRI.

Wide Variety of Beam Control Options

Each Pica Cube 4C and 4CA fixture has a native 8° beam spread and ships with a complete set of 20°, 40° and 60° spread lenses to provide designers with the beam control they need for their projects. A range of Asymmetrical Spread Lenses and other beam-shaping accessories are also available, including Barn Doors, a Top Hat and an Egg Crate Louver.

Innovative Compact Design

Very little space is wasted in the elegant, rugged design of the Pica Cube. Our unique, patented heat management system allows an impressive array of LEDs to be packed into a tiny 2.5 inch cube - half the space needed by the most popular, comparable lights on the market. The Pica Cube has been engineered to be durable, reliable and affordable without sacrificing the qualities expected by demanding lighting professionals.

Sophisticated, Yet Simple

Ready for the most demanding professional environments, the Pica Cube is powered by a power adapter with a 2-pin connector, or by Rosco's Pica Portal that provides power + DMX data via Cat5 cable. The recessed RJ45 connectors provide a streamlined look for any installation. A full universe of high speed DMX512 in 8-bit or 16-bit resolution allows for completely flicker-free dimming from your console. An optional "Filament Mode" can be set to mimic the fade of an incandescent lamp going to black. For installations without DMX, the Pica Cube 4C and 4CA fixtures feature a stand-alone, color wash mode that allows multiple units to be easily slaved together, synchronized or offset, using self-generated DMX for color chases and other dynamic lighting patterns.

Versatile and Modular

Pica Cubes are small enough to be built into scenery or soffits, and light enough to mount as a track light in any venue. A novel bracket design allows cubes to be easily surface mounted, hung with c-clamps, configured in stacked arrays, converted to canopy mount or retrofit with track hanging adapters - virtually anything an installer requires.
