At IBC, Litra has announced a new RGBWW light, LitraStudio, with over a million unique colors.
Litra said LitraStudio is a new category of studio lighting. It is compact enough to fit in a small camera bag yet capable of producing up to 3,000 Lumen of continuous light and up to 6,000 Lumen of flash.
LitraStudio pushes the boundaries of studio lighting when it comes to size, durability and versatility. The microstructure lens delivers a smooth and even light pattern with no center hotspot or harsh edges. It is also flicker free at all shutter angles and features a 97 CRI and TLCI color accuracy, enabling video makers to create with true color.
The complete light fixture, display, mounting and internal battery weighs 33.5 ounces with a size of 5.5 x 3.9 x 2.9-inches. Litra said no other fixture on the market delivers this much power per inch and per ounce.
The LitraStudio features a range of fully tunable color settings, including CCT, HSI, RGBWW, Gel Presets, Effects and Flash modes that can all be adjusted in real time. The CCT mode provides 2,000-10,000K adjustable bi-color lighting, with green and magenta shift control to allow for tunable blue and green screen optimization.
In HSI mode, users have full control over hue, saturation and intensity and can select color preferences from over one million possible combinations. The Gel mode provides commonly used gels with simulated daylight or tungsten light sources, while the Effects mode offers presets for party, police, paparazzi, candle and other commonly used lighting environment simulations.
The DMX control allows for precision control of multiple lights and integration into industry standard gear when used with a custom LitraStudio DMX Dongle. The light is 0-100 percent dimmable with a 50 degree beam angle, allowing creators to project any desired hue and saturation.
The fixture can also be used with Litra’s custom-built soft box, barn doors and honeycomb grids, as well as other traditional light modifiers to soften and shape the light further. With its precision functionality, creators can accurately reproduce surrounding light sources for consistency or create an entirely new environment by adjusting the settings to their own preferences.
