Litepanels Launch Brighter Lykos+ Mini LED Panel

The Lykos mini LED panel lights boasts an output 40% brighter than the previous generation, delivering 2000 lux (@3ft/1m) of white light at colour temperatures from 3200-5600K.

Litepanels' Lykos+ offers broadcast quality lighting - with a CRI of 96 for true-to-life colour accuracy - in a fixture that weighs 1lb (500g).

“The quality of light from our Astra panels has made them industry standard for studios and news crews” said Michael Herbert, product manager. “Now, with the introduction of Lykos+, that same broadcast-quality level of light is available in one of our smallest, most portable fixtures. Lykos+ is the perfect light for remote locations or tight spaces, its compact size fits into any scene with the small but powerful fixture providing over two hours of operation via its built-in L-series/NPF battery mount.”

The fixture offers multiple mounting options or can be hand-held with a sturdy hand grip. Stand mounted, taped or tied, Lykos+ is designed to integrate easily into any lighting scene. Brightness and colour temperature are controlled by two simple dials or via the Litepanels SmartLite Director iOS app with an optional Bluetooth dongle.
