What light is this?

After a few years of casually wondering when working with a client who has me use their consumer/slightly prosumer level setup, I still haven't been able to figure out what kind of light this is. General detective work won't work here - no reciepts, nobody at company knows, no discernable logo, text or anything whatsoever on the light kit to identify it, two power cords that power the lights are different connections so no idea if or which one I should attempt to trace but nothing proprietary labeling wise. I would love to have a damn accessory that would convert it from 7200 to 5600 that is proprietary.

Can some lighting wizard out there tap into his/her presumably Amazon.com/Ebay consumer entry level light knowledge and identify at least the company and at best the model of these things.

Part of me wonders if this may truly stump the Dvinfo.net community due to the non descript nature, and the fact that they're entry level lights, ha ha.

Re: What light is this?

Probably a cheap generic LED panel light with terrible CRI. They're all over eBay

As for changing the color temp. Get some 1/4, 1/2 and full CTB, cut it to fit and you'll have a cheap solution for daylight balance. As for fixing the color spectrum, no amount of filtration will help.
