Cool to the Touch Lights From Litepanels
Litepanels is bringing a new "cool-to-the touch" Bi-Color fixture to the NAB Show in Las Vegas.
Until now, when cinematographers, videographers and still photographers faced a change of lighting conditions between daylight and tungsten, they’ve either had to change lighting fixtures entirely, re-lamp the fixture, or use light-robbing filtration in front of the fixture.
The new Litepanels 1x1 Bi-Color provides a single fixture capable of generating a color temperature of either 3200 K or 5600 K, or a range of color temperatures in between. The Bi-Color name comes from its design, which incorporates both 3200 K and 5600 K LEDs, allowing a crew to carry one light or set of lights to cover both tungsten and daylight ambient light conditions.
Litepanels existing 1x1 LED slimline fixtures focused the 5600 K beam to 30 degrees. Now, the 1x1 Super-Spot further focuses the output to a 15-degree beam, which concentrates the light in a smaller area, and provides a longer throw of the light. Like all Litepanels fixtures, the 1x1 Super-Spot remains cool to the touch and uses a small fraction of the power used by traditional lighting fixtures.
Litepanels will be at booth C6817.
