Litepanels Upgrades LED Lighting, Boosting Output While Reducing Power
Litepanels has announced significant upgrades to its professional LED lighting range, boosting the light output of its fixtures while reducing power consumption.
Litepanels introduce the next-generation Astra 3X and 6X LED panels, and daylight-balanced Sola 4+ and Sola 6+ Fresnel lights. In addition to delivering higher-quality color rendering, the new lights can be powered by professional camera batteries.
“With their improved output, these lights can be used in a variety of applications with the added benefit of being able to go fully mobile with battery power,” said Pat Grosswendt, co-founder of Litepanels and professional gaffer. “Users can take these upgraded lighting solutions into remote locations without being tethered to a wall outlet."
The Astra 3X and 6X panels are now available in either daylight or tunable bi-color models. Offering up to 50 percent more intensity across all models while drawing less power allows for longer battery run time. The new Astra 6X is six times brighter than the original 1x1 model while the Astra 3X is three times brighter.
All the lights feature high CRI and TLCI that yields exceptional color reproduction. The bi-color models allow for transitional color tuning from daylight to tungsten to accommodate any lighting situation.
With smooth dimming from 100 percent to zero percent and no color shift throughout the entire range, color and intensity can be quickly adjusted either manually or remotely via the available optional Bluetooth and DMX communications modules.
The Astra 6X and 3X Bi-color will be available to ship in June, 2017, while the Astra 6X and 3X Daylight will be available to ship in September. The Sola 4+ and 6+ lights will be available to ship by July.
