Luxli has introduced the Viola 2, what it calls the brightest, most accurate five-inch LED light on the market.
Luxli said the new portable light, weighing ¾ of a pound (340 grams), is bi-color, fully RGB and has 150 digital gels and ten special effects.
Viola 2’s 88 LEDs are RGBAW — a technology that assures a consistent brightness of 700 lux at one meter and a consistent accuracy of about 95 CRI and 97 TLCI no matter the color temperature.
Set the light to any color temperature with the Viola’s CCT mode. A twist of the dial adjusts the Viola from 3,000 to 10,000 K to accurately match any environment.
The Viola 2 has the full spectrum of RGB built in. Want to add a gel? There are 150 classic digital gel filters loaded in. Users can apply each gel to any color temperature to match your existing lights with filters. Gels are a thing of the past.
Want to create fire without matches, or shoot a sunset without having to be there at sunset? Use one of the Viola 2’s ten effects.
Download the free iOS/Android app to unlock even more possibilities - like remote controlling multiple Viola 2s.
The price is $518.95.
