    Accent family images

    Transform buildings from dull to dazzling with bright, addressable ribbons of light.   

    Our Accent direct-view linear luminaires are mounted directly on structural surfaces—opening up thrilling new possibilities. Create beautiful effects. Display messages or video. And get attention. Accent luminaires integrate seamlessly with the exteriors of new or existing buildings. And their resilient, rugged form factor means maximum reliability, year after year.

    Accent MX Powercore gen3 is available in 2 foot and 4 foot lengths, which can be easily connected to create long continuous lines of intense, dynamic color. With Accent MX, you can install run lengths of up to 100 m (328 ft)—all with the simplicity of line voltage.


    Accent Compact displays large-scale video and graphics, just like Accent MX. Its compact form factor and low voltage design keeps the luminaire light, and enables run lengths of up to 14 meters (48 feet) per power supply, using 12 4-foot luminaires. Choose from a clear or translucent lens.


    Precise resolution control  


    Accent is available in two form factors: Accent MX and Accent Compact. With Accent MX, luminaires can be addressed and controlled in increments down to 30 mm (1.2 in), or up to 1214 mm (4 ft). Accent Compact luminaires can be addressed and controlled in increments down to 19 mm (0.75 in), or up to 1220 mm (4 ft).

    Daylight visible


    Direct-view luminaires need to be exceptionally bright, even in daylight. Accent luminaires deliver bright light output—up to 591 lumens with Accent MX. The translucent UV-protected polycarbonate lens, specifically designed for direct viewing, provides exceptional viewing angles and ensures uniform color mixing. Clear lens is also available for Accent Compact.

    Rugged, durable construction


    This IP66-rated luminaire is designed to meet the taxing requirements of outdoor applications, even the most adverse conditions we’ve encountered around the world.

    Controller capable


    Works seamlessly with the complete Color Kinetics line of controllers, including Video System Manager Pro, Light System Manager, and iPlayer 3, as well as third-party controllers.

    Power options

    Accent MX uses Powercore technology to rapidly, efficiently, and accurately controls power output to luminaires directly from line voltage.  
    iColor Accent Compact accepts Ethernet input from the PDS-400 48V EO or CM-400 48V EO to support long control runs not subject to DMX data and addressing limitations.

    Flexible positioning


    Over-molded end-to-end locking connectors supply both power and data. Connectors can make 180° turns for easy layout. Jumper cables can add extra space between luminaires.


    Create a world in motion


    At Color Kinetics, we’ve been helping our customers make motion part of their lighting designs since the very early days of display video. We’ve developed an extensive family of advanced direct-view LED luminaires that display video, as well as related technologies and components that help make it happen.


    We designed a three-part video guide to direct-view luminaires to inspire you to make moving images part of your lighting design—and to help you get the best possible results.
