Litepanels Set to Unveil LED Lighting Systems

New product will debut as part of the line of daylight balance Sola Series of Fresnels

Litepanels, a producer of light emitting diode (LED) lighting products is set to debut new LED illumination systems at the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) Show in Las Vegas on April 16-19, 2012.

The lighting company says it will introduce a new product as part of its line of daylight balance Sola Series of Fresnels, along with the entirely new Inca Series of tungsten balanced Fresnels.

The Sola 4 daylight Fresnel fixture is the smallest digital multiplex (DMX) controllable LED Fresnel on the market, Litepanels says. The new focusable fixture features a four-inch (10 centimeter) Fresnel lens and uses a small fraction of the power consumed by conventional fixtures.

The Sola 4 employs Litepanels’ proprietary LEDs to produce the company’s hallmark soft light quality daylight color balance. It is based on the same breakthrough Fresnel technology as Litepanels’ award-winning Sola 6, but in a smaller, more lightweight form factor, according to Litepanels. It provides the controllability and light-shaping, single shadow properties inherent in a Fresnel light, with a range of focusing from 70 degrees to 10 degrees. Like all Litepanels fixtures, Sola 4 can be dimmed from 100 percent to zero with no noticeable shift in color temperature, the company says. And both focus and dimming of the Sola 4 can be controlled manually with dials on the fixture, or remotely using a DMX512 system.

In addition, Litepanels’ breakthrough Sola 6 Fresnel fixture has been upgraded over the past year and like the Sola 4, now sports an external power supply, and the same capability of being powered by DC via a standard XLR connection.

A new line of Litepanels tungsten-balance Fresnel fixtures, the Inca Series, will make its premiere at the NAB Show, Litepanels says. Both the Inca 6 and Inca 4 mirror the capabilities of their daylight counterparts in the Sola Series of Fresnels, but can produce “tungsten-balance light” that can be integrated with light from existing tungsten fixtures, the company says. That enables studios with existing tungsten fixtures to experience the cost-saving benefits of LED lighting without changing their current lighting system, the firm adds.
