Product Description
MIRO CUBE™
Rosco's innovative MIRO CUBE™ series of LED wash lights packs 48 watts
outputting more than 3400 lumens into a compact and portable 4 inch
cube! The sleek yet rugged, geometric design of the Miro Cube™ is
perfectly at home in museums, on track light systems, in stores and lobbies
or built into sets, truss and lighting rigs of all styles.
These luminaires offer the flexibility and versatility needed for any type of
lighting challenge. No expensive external power supply or ballast is
required, the Miro Cube™ plugs directly into the wall anywhere in the
world, automatically adjusting to mains power from 90-240vAC 50-60hz.
Drawing less than ½ an amp of current, more than 40 Miro Cubes™ can be
plugged into a single 20A circuit!
An intuitive LCD control panel sets virtually every aspect of the lights
including a master-slave configuration for fast lighting set-ups. Completely
flicker free dimming is available via DMX (in 8 or 16 bit resolution).
05
Product Description
Mounting these compact 4 inch cubes is limited only by the imagination of
the installer. The novel through bolted yoke design allows units to be easily
ganged into multi-unit strips and arrays for greater output and coverage.
Weighing just 2-1/2 pounds, the MIRO CUBE™ can be attached to standard
architectural lighting track using accessory track adapters. For the easiest
track installation, use our DMX Data Track and pass DMX to all the
luminaires on the track without cable jumpers.
Available in versions that offer full color mixing, tunable color temperature
white light, or high powered ultra-violet light for stunning black-light
effects, the MIRO CUBE™ luminaires are the smallest, most feature packed
and affordable, professional grade LED wash lights on the market.

MIRO CUBE™ 4C
From walls to washes to uplighters, the Miro
Cube™ 4C color mixing wash light offers a
designer maximum creativity in a tiny package.
Using best in class RGBW quad color, multi
channel chips, a gorgeous palette of saturated,
mid-tone and pale tint colors can be dialed in
at the touch of a button. And of course, a true
white is always available as well, not the
unflattering mixed amber compromise found
in other lights. Smart programming in the Miro Cube™ 4C includes a
stand-alone color wash mode or allows multiple units to be easily slaved
together, synchronized and offset using self-generated DMX for color chases
and other dynamic lighting patterns without a console. Use it alone,
configured in strips & arrays or built-in for virtually any application needing
colored light - from stage, studios and location, bars and casinos, to stores,
windows and lobbies.
NOTE: The luminaire should be positioned so that prolonged staring
into the luminaire at a distance closer than 3.3m is not expected.
10
MIRO CUBE™ WNC
Size matters. But quality of light matters more!
The Miro Cube™ WNC embodies what every
lighting professional needs - A bright, tunable,
beautiful white light. Using 12 high quality Cree
XML 4W emitters, the Miro WNC outputs 3400
lumens and can adjust from 2700K to 6500K. A
mix of warm, neutral and cool LEDs insure
excellent rendering across all color temperatures making it perfect for use on TV or film
sets, in retail lighting, museums, architecture, photography studios or any
white light application.
NOTE: The luminaire should be positioned so that prolonged staring
into the luminaire at a distance closer than 0.31m is not expected.
11
MIRO CUBE™ UV
Ideally suited for theme parks, night clubs,
casinos, museums and stage applications,
Miro Cube™ UV is the smallest, most
affordable high powered UV light available to
lighting professionals. Drawing just 50 watts, it
outperforms conventional long throw fixtures
using 5 times the power, weighing 10 times
more, and which need an expensive lamp
change every 1000 hours! The fixture allows
for full speed 8 and 16 bit DMX dimming and standalone control (without a
DMX source) via a rear mounted full text LCD display.
WARNING: Do not look directly into the UV light during operation. Eye
and skin exposure to UV light can cause severe damage to humans and
animals. Take every precaution to limit exposure to UV light (including
the use of UV-blocking eye protection).
12
DMX Mode
In DMX mode, the unit is controlled by the data it receives on the 5-pin
XLR or RJ45 (ARC) connectors located on the rear panel. The number of
DMX channels required to control the fixture is dependent on the
factory setting in use (for example - Four Color Miro Cubes™ use four
DMX channels while One Color Miro Cubes™ use one).
NOTE: A three pin to five pin DMX adapter may be used with
the fixture

DMX Mode
8 bit or 16 bit DMX:
The fixture can run in either 8 bit or 16 bit DMX mode. In 8 bit mode,
the Miro Cube™ accepts one DMX channel for each color. In 16 bit
mode, two channels are required for each color. To change from 8 bit
to 16 bit mode (or from 16 bit to 8 bit) press MENU until “SET TO 16BIT
DMX?” or “SET TO 8BIT DMX?” appears on the LCD, then press OK.
Filament Fade:
An incandescent lamp has a slight delay, or lag with changing
intensities, whereas an LED responds instantly. The difference is most
noticeable during a theatrical black out. The Miro Cube™ can emulate
an incandescent lamp by selecting one of the Tungsten Fade settings.
To change the Tungsten Fade setting, press MENU until “CHANGE
FILAMNT FADE?” appears on the screen, and press OK. Select from
“OFF”, “1 (MIN)”, “2 (MID)” or ”3 (MAX)” using the
or
keys, and press OK. A setting of “3 (MAX)” provides the greatest
delay. A setting of “0” will turn the Filament Fade off, and allowthe
LEDs to respond instantly to changing DMX input.
17
Manual Mode
WARNING: DO NOT CONNECT ANY MIRO CUBE™ IN MANUAL
MODE TO ANY OTHER DMX SENDING DEVICE AS CONTENTION
ON THE DMX512 INPUT WILL RESULT.
In Manual Mode, the Miro Cube™ can be controlled directly from its
rear panel without the need of a DMX console or a DMX control
device. Standalone control capabilities vary according to the factory
setting in use (Four Color, Three Color, or One Color). Factory settings
are password protected but can be adjusted. Contact the
manufacturer for more information.
(All standalone, DMX address and configuration settings are
non-volatile, meaning they will not change if power is lost or
switched off and restored. When set to manual mode, the Miro
Cube™ operates as a DMX Master and is sending DMX512 data.)
18

the Miro Cube™ automatically cycles through its entire saturated color
spectrum by modulating the intensity of the red, green, and blue LEDs.
There are two user settings that can be adjusted in Color Wash mode.
The current value of each setting is shown on the main screen.
22
Color Wash Mode
Wash Timer
The wash timer determines how long it takes for the Miro Cube™ to
complete an entire color cycle, and, by extension, the rate at which the
colors change. Choose a short time for a rapid wash or a longer time for
a slower wash. To change the Wash Timer, press MENU and select
“CHANGE WASH TIMER?” by pressing OK. Use the
or
keys to
select a Wash Time between 15 seconds and 60 minutes (in 15 second
intervals).
Wash Offset:
When set to Color Wash Mode, the Miro Cube™ is operating as a DMX
master and is sending DMX512 data, allowing it to control unique color
washes on up to fourteen additional fixtures in a chain (set to DMX
mode).
NOTE: Slave fixtures should be set to DMX Mode and assigned to
channels five, nine, thirteen, etc (in four channel increments).
23
Use the WASH OFFSET function to control the interaction between
multiple Miro Cubes™ in a Color Wash chain. The Wash Offset
determines the length of delay between each light, or how long it takes
to “pass” a color from one light to the next. Set the Wash Offset to “0”
and the lights will color wash in unison, displaying the same color at
the same time. Create a multi-fixture Chasing Rainbow effect, where
colors pass from light to light, by increasing the Wash Offset. The larger
the offset time, the longer it takes for a color to pass to the next light.
To change the Wash Offset, press MENU and select “CHANGE WASH
OFFSET?“ by pressing OK. Use the
or
keys to select the time
delay (up to 511 seconds) between lights.
24
Serial Mode
In Serial mode, the unit is controlled by the serial data it receives on the XLR
connector located on the rear panel or via CubeConnect™. If your unit does not
have Serial Mode you will need to enable it by entering FACTORY SETUP using
the MENU button. For the password enter “3270”. Using the MENU button to
toggle through the options select SET CONFIG OPTIONS and click OK. Next use
the MENU button to toggle through the options select SERIAL MODE ON and
click OK. Finally click OK to exit.
The serial address required to control the fixture is dependent on the factory setting in
use (for example - four color MIRO Cubes™ use four Serial Channels while one color
MIRO Cubes™ use one).
Serial Address
To change the Serial address, press MENU until “CHANGE SER ADDRESS?”
appears on the LCD, and press OK. Select the desired Serial address using the
or
keys, and press OK.
