Brightness boost for LED lights15 September 2017
Two of Litepanels’ main lighting ranges have been revamped to offer higher output lights: The Sola 4+ and Sola 6+ Fresnel lights and Astra 3X and 6X LED panels.
The Sola range provides cool daylight illumination with the ability to control focus and intensity via standard DMX512 protocol. Compared to its predecessor, the Sola 4+ offers a 120 per cent increase in output, while the Sola 6+ boasts a 50 per cent increase. Sola
LED Fresnels allow for a quick setup with DC operation via Anton/Bauer Gold Mount or V-mount 14.4V batteries. The lights’ cool-to-the-touch operation means that users won’t have to wait for them to cool off.
The TLCI 95 Sola 4+ is claimed to be the smallest DMX-controllable LED Fresnel on the market, drawing up to 53W, with focus control from 71° to 15° beam via on-fixture dial or DMX, while the Sola 6+ draws 104W, with a 67° to 16° beam.
The Astra 6X is six times brighter than the original 1×1 Astra panel, while the Astra 3X is three times brighter. Both are available in either daylight or tuneable bicolour models, with smooth dimming from 100 to 0 per cent and no colour shift.
