PrimeTime Updates its GUS 51 Fresnel LED Light

PrimeTime Lighting has upgraded its GUS 51 Fresnel LED light with redesigned barn doors to extend the user’s creative ability to cut and shape light. 

PrimeTime said the 360-degree barn door rotation on the Fresnel can be locked at any angle. The light has a super-wide focus range — adjustable from a tight 11-degree beam angle at full spot to a wide 80-degree field angle at full flood. The light has heat dispersion technology that cools the light passively. There is no fan.

The high-quality Micro-Fresnel lens systems with advanced optics has less than 2.8 percent decrease in brightness from center to outer edge. All the diodes in PrimeTime LED products are under-driven to extend diode life and color balance to 50,000 plus hours. The light has a 95+ CRI (Color Rendering Index), which results in accurate color rendition, even with ultra high-def TV production. It has a 98+ TLCI (Television Lighting Consistency Index).

The light draws 60 watts and is equivalent to 750-watts incandescent. It’s available in either daylight or Tungsten color temperature.
