Westcott Announces Solix Bi-Color LED Light

Westcott’s Solix Bi-Color is a compact and powerful 90-watt LED light designed for videographers and photographers.

Westcott said the Solix emits a light output of up to 3100 lux (at 1m) with a high color accuracy rating of up to 97 CRI (98 TLCI) and a beam angle of ~120 degrees. With many light modification options and an adjustable color temperature of 2800-5600K, the Solix Bi-Color can be used in any lighting scenario.

Weighing 3.3 pounds, the light's compact housing is durable and heat resistant. An output dial and digital display located on the back allow for precise output and color temperature control.

This energy-efficient AC/DC light draws 90 watts and is rated for 50,000+ hours of use. When powered with Westcott’s D-Tap Battery this light can be operated on-location for up to 100 minutes.

Along with a 45 percent increase in light output and bi-color capabilities, the updated Solix now comes with a 12-inch round collapsible softbox to maximize light output, magnetic barndoor system and a removable frosted diffusion cap for eliminating cross-shadows.

The Solix incorporates a locking all-metal speedring with eight standard rod receptacles. It is compatible with a variety of modifiers, including softboxes, Stripbanks and five-foot Octabanks up to four pounds.
