March 31, 2011: Litepanels, pioneering developer of proprietary LED lighting and a Vitec Group brand, will show a wide range of its HD-friendly daylight balanced LED lighting fixtures, including the new H2 Hi-Output™ LED fixture.
NAB will mark the world-wide debut on Litepanels’ H2 Hi-Output LED lights. The new fixtures answer the need for an LED fixture capable of throwing illumination over a 20 to 25 foot (6.1 – 7.6 M) distance, providing HD-friendly light with all the advantages of Litepanels LEDs. The new H2 Hi-Output is 5600°K color balance, utilizing an array of 72 one-Watt daylight LEDs that are focused to a 10° angle.
Litepanels’ Sola Fresnel LED Fixtures are now shipping. The revolutionary daylight-balanced Sola Fresnels provide the controllability and single-shadow properties inherent in a Fresnel light, but utilize just a fraction of the power of conventional fixtures. The Sola 6™ is a 100W studio or remote fixture; the Sola ENG™ is an on-camera 30W fixture.
Litepanels extensive line of 1×1™ arrays of LED bulbs will be showcased at NAB. 1x1s have become the industry standard for studio and location lighting. Various models provide daylight or tungsten, or can dial up a color balance in-between. Light angles of flood, 30° and 15°, and focusable models are available. And the Low Profile takes up just 3 inches of headroom.
The lineup of on-camera LED light fixtures from Litepanels will also be demonstrated. These small, portable, battery powered LED lights are designed to meet the needs of ENG and field production, providing HD friendly soft fill light. Micro and MicroPro daylight fixtures run off of standard AA batteries, and provide as much as six hours of run time depending on the type of batteries used. The MicroPro Hybrid provides the company’s hallmark soft continuous lighting plus adds a 400% burst flash feature for still photography. MiniPlus fixtures are available in daylight balance flood and spot & tungsten balance flood models. Plus, the company’s famous beauty light, the LED Ringlite will also be on display.
