Photon Beard to Show Highlight Soft-Focus LEDs at NAB Show 2017

At the NAB Show 2017, Photon Beard will feature its Highlight LED range, featuring color rendering and television lighting consistency indexes with its remote phosphor technology.

Photon Beard said because Highlight LEDs have no moving parts and are passively cooled, they are completely silent in operation. Combined with high efficiency and a five-year warranty on the entire fixture, the lights have a lower and predictable operating cost.

Available in 90, 180, 270 and 360-watt variants, the options in the Highlight LED range equate to two, four, six and eight tube fluorescents, but put out more light with no color shift over time.

Compared to typical LED fixtures, they deliver far more punch without producing unpleasant skin tones that sometimes make directors of photography reluctant to use LEDs as key lights.
