Light & Motion and Elinchrom Introduce New Stella Pro LED Lights

Light & Motion and Elinchrom have collaborated to introduce the Stella Pro 5000 RF and Stella Pro 8000 RF, new portable daylight balanced lights with wireless control.

Light & Motion and Elinchrom said they have formed a “synergetic relationship” that resulted in the new lights that free users to mount the weatherproof 5600K lights anywhere with no need for DMX controllers or external wireless RF modules.

Light & Motion said it has incorporated the Elinchrom “Skyport Protocol,” a radio control system, into these two new Stella Pro RF units.

The Stella Pro 5000 RF and Stella Pro 8000 RF (with integrated Skyport Transceiver) are controlled by the EL Remote Control for Stella, a wireless, 2.4 GHz remote control designed for working with continuous lights compatible with Elinchrom's Skyport radio protocol.

The RF Control for Stella provides users with 20 channels, four separate groups, and the ability to turn the unit on and control its power from zero to 100 percent.

In addition, it is also capable of controlling up to 20 lights at a range of up to 656 feet outdoors and 197 feet indoors. This shared technology also potentially allows the Stella RF lights to be controlled by the new Speedmaster L858D-U with the Elinchrom/Phottix module and the Litemaster Pro L-478D-U-EL. These other products use the Elinchrom protocol.

The Stella Pro RF units will be available in June, 2017. The lights range in price from $1,999.99 to $2,199.99.
