Litepanels launch new Studio X high-performance LED Fresnel range
Litepanels have teamed up with Videndum to launch its brand new Studio X bi-colour Fresnel range. The range consists of high-quality, energy-efficient broadcasting lights that create a natural and balanced look on the subject. The fresnels are available in six models with lens sizes from five to fourteen inches. Each one offers a directional precision spot light to flood beam control of quality white light.
The natural-looking light creates perfect skin tones by using high output COB LEDs to produce superior white light. The lights are dimmable from 0-100% or across the adjustable CCT range from 2700°K to 6500°K. DIYP spoke to Andrew Woodfin to find out more.
“Litepanels LED panels are installed into leading studio facilities worldwide and customers have been asking for a broadcast quality Bi-Color Fresnel series to pair with them,” said Michael Herbert, product manager, Litepanels. “The Quartzcolor Fresnels bring high quality, color accurate output with matching CCT values in robust, broadcast quality fixtures that complement our panels to provide a complete studio solution.”
The range comes in 6 different sizes. The smallest model, Studio X2, is a 60W Fresnel with a 5” lens and a spot-to-flood beam angle range of 10°-49° delivering up to 2,300 lux at 10ft/3m (spot). The largest model, Studio X7, is a 360W Fresnel with a 14” lens and a spot-to-flood beam angle range of 6°-57° delivering up to 28,116 lux at 10ft/3m (spot). Studio X3, Studio X4, Studio X5 and Studio X6 make up the full range. All units include 4-leaf rotating barn doors and advanced thermal management ensures an incredible 50,000+ hours of LED engine life.
“Fixtures in the Studio X range use up to 85% less energy than traditional Fresnels and, because they emit less heat, can significantly reduce HVAC costs,” continued Herbert. “Broadcasters are increasingly turning to LED lighting to improve their efficiency and we are delighted to offer a combination of LED panels and Fresnels that can help them to minimise power consumption without sacrificing quality.”
That’s great news considering the rising energy costs. It’s also great news for environmental concerns as LEDs are far more efficient than traditional older-style bulbs.
The Litepanels Studio X Fresnel range is available to buy now starting from $1900.
