Pat Grosswendt from LitePanels (part of the Vitec Group) shows Craig Chartier the Hilio D12 and the Tro, Trio Plus, and Sola Four LED lighting kits at NAB2014.

More details from the manufacturer:

The Litepanels Hilio D12 (Daylight Balanced) panel delivers the best of both worlds, combining the flexibility of an open source fixture with all the benefits of Litepanels’ proprietary LED fixture designs. These innovative panels emit a raw, narrow beam that provides the high intensity you need for long throws. With an array of optional accessories, this intensity can be harnessed and shaped to light an exterior, wash a set with soft light, or illuminate a cyc wall or green screen. The Hilio D12 is four times brighter than the previous version of Hilio. There’s no need for a heavy ballast or cabling, as the environmentally friendly and energy efficient Hilio D12 fixture draws only 350 watts of electricity, but deliver the output of a 575W HMI Par.

Ideal for news and professional videography, Litepanels’ Sola ENG Flight Kit provides three Litepanels Sola ENG Fresnel fixtures and accessories. Battery or A/C powered, the Sola ENG™, is designed for on-camera and portable use. Each fixture offers focusable output comparable to a 100W HMI yet requires only 30W to power it. These versatile lights are designed for easy travel, quick set-up and operation. At just 30 pounds, the new Litepanels Sola ENG Flight Kit can be carried onboard commercial planes and stows neatly in overhead bins. These compact, yet powerful fixtures offer a fully dimmable and focusable daylight balanced source, so you have everything you need to work on the fly. Travelers will appreciate the retractable extension handle and smooth-rolling polyurethane wheels on the custom Trolley-style hard case with custom foam case.
