Photonia To Introduce MY2020 Fresnel LED Studio Lights At IBC

Photonia will launch its MY2020 range of LED Fresnel lights at IBC and focus on firmware upgrades that add functionality and versatility to the fixtures.

Photonia said the firmware upgrades will be the ability to exercise greater control over the way in which the light’s fan is controlled. The already extremely quiet solutions will be enhanced allowing users like DoPs and gaffers to select from five different fan management modes depending on their operational context. These range from a high-temperature outdoor shooting to a quiet indoor TV studio recording.

The updated MY2020 range of fixtures allow for improved color matching ability, faster boot-up, quicker beam focusing and a new range of pre-set effects.

The MY2020 release of Fresnel lights are as bright and silent as the best soft lights, while being more versatile due to a higher light shaping capability, reduced weight and smaller dimensions compared to their power. Features and accessories enable wireless control, battery operation and soft light conversion.
