Zylight Showcased Pro-Panel LED Lights at 2016 NAB

Zylight showcased its new Pro-Panel variable color LED soft light at the 2016 NAB Show.

Available in 1x2 and 2x2 configurations, Zylight said the Pro-Panel provides the cool operation, energy savings and long life of LED technology, while eliminating the harsh glare and multiple shadow effects often associated with budget LED panel lights.

Ideal for cinematography, video production and professional photography, the Pro-Panel easily adjusts from tungsten to daylight (2700K-6500K) with up to a 95 CRI (Color Rendering Index) rating.

It is dimmable and provides a wide, 110-degree beam angle. The rear panel includes color and dimming control knobs, plus two custom preset buttons.

All Pro-Panel lights include a honey comb louver to block unwanted light spill and refine beam control, gel frame for customized light effects and an adjustable yoke that allows mounting on portable stands or hanging on a studio grid.

The Pro-Panel ships with an AC power cable, but can also be powered by battery through its three-pin XLR port.

The Pro-Panel 1x2 panel has a list price of $2,699, while the 2x2 panel has a list price of $2,999. Optional accessories include four-pin XLR remote control, barn doors and ATA-rated cases.
