Lighting manufacturer Astera has today announced their new series of Fresnel lights. They’re kicking off with the 300W PlutoFresnel and the larger 1,000W LeoFresnel. Astera says that the two lights are designed to “plug a significant gap in the market”. Essentially, they see a big gap in the LED lighting market and a distinct lack of LED Fresnels.
There are a number of Fresnel attachments on the market for standard COB LEDs, but very few dedicated Fresnel LED lights. The PlutoFresnel puts out the equivalent of a 300W light while drawing only 80W. The higher output LeoFresnel draws only 250W while putting out the equivalent of a 1,000W. Both lights also offer a wide range of full-spectrum colours thanks to their RGBMA LED makeup.
