Ianiro UK intros Minima LED26 January 2011
Ianiro UK is introducing the new Minima pro LED light, which weighs a mere 190g, provides an equivalent 50W tungsten output, and offers full colour temperature switching with six settings from 2800°K to 6500°K.
Nick Allen-Miles of Ianiro UK commented: “The Minima is a major step forward for every production on the run. It does away with the need for colour gels to control image temperature, buying the camera team valuable time while reducing the size of their kit bag. But most importantly, the quality of the output is excellent, marrying outstanding brightness with amazing colour accuracy.”
The Minima achieves this accuracy by combining red, white and yellow LED lights to form a continuous spectrum with full-range frequency. Low-cost and inaccurate analogue circuitry has been replaced by a digital signal microprocessor and a 25k frequency PWM controller. This allows for the colour ratio of different LEDs to be adjusted precisely according to different colour temperatures. Minima’s CRI (Colour Rendering Index) can reach above 90% at any colour temperature from 2800°K to 6500°K. Minimum colour shift is guaranteed to be within the range of 3-step dimming.
With the unit featuring 144 individual LED light bulbs, the Minima delivers a pleasant, uniformly soft light that delivers natural skin tones with an excellent 3D effect. Despite the sophistication of its electronics and its powerful lighting output, Minima features a low power consumption design and with a run time of 1.5 hours.
