PrimeTime Lighting has introduced the low-profile MSLED 40 XB2, an LED fixture designed to give a wide and strong, yet soft and elegant single-shadow wash of light.
PrimeTime said the passively cooled studio LED is engineered and built in the United States with a five year warranty. The MSLED series of LED fixtures are designed for standard broadcast studio grids and also work well in low-profile or low-ceiling applications for key, fill or backlight.
Using the latest energy-efficient LED technology, the MSLED 40 XB2 boasts twice the width and coverage of the original MSLED 20 XB2. It uses energy-saving LED technology for cool and professional talent illumination.
The light has no fan, noise or vibration and draws 120 watts. The LEDs have a 50,000-hour rated lifetime. Each fixture weighs 18 pounds.
