Photonia Introduces the Chromos RGBWW Fresnel Light

Photonia has introduced Chromos, a Fresnel LED RGBWW weighing 17 pounds with an overall 500 watts of illumination power.

Photonia said the new light has a color touchscreen user interface, built-in universal power adapter, motorized beam control from 15 to 55-degrees and the versatility of an RGB light. The light is combined with the quality of two dedicated white channels at warm white and cool white.

In a compact case made of die-cast aluminum, Chromos has two high-CRI white channels to the three RGB channels. The light enables every color to achieve a color rendering index of 96+ on the entire CCT range. Chromos was used at NAB 2019 to light The Broadcast Bridge booth.

Photonia is an Italian company that designs and manufactures high-end LED Fresnel lights.
