Fiilex Introduced the M1 LED Light at 2016 NAB

Fiilex introduced its first “panel-style” LED light with Dense-Matrix technology at 2016 NAB.

Fiilex said the M1 project began as an effort to bring the capabilities of the P360EX light into a multi-source array, but, with design iteration and extensive R&D, this unit became much more than the sum of its initial parts.

The new light uses the company’s Dense-Matrix LED technology which has been arrayed into a form-factor that marries a diffuse flicker-free source with formidable power and throw. The M1 is designed to accommodate Fiilex's light-shaping accessories and give filmmakers maximum control over its 1500 watt equivalent output.

With its built-in softbox mount, users can skip the speed ring and directly attach the softbox quickly. The fresnel array quickly clips into place, narrowing the M1's beam into a punchy source.

The M1 features professional-grade tunability options, which include full dimmability, color tunability from 2800 to 6500K and hue control. With the M1, Fiilex users can complement their single source Q and P series lights with the broad throw of a top-tier panel fixture.

Hue control is ±0.25 green. Water resistance is IP24. The light can be controlled via Wi-Fi or DMX.
