Litepanels to Highlight Flight Kits at GV Expo

Portable, efficient LED lights will be featured in Litepanels' booth.

Litepanels Sola ENG Flight Kit

Van Nuys, California –Litepanels, the LED lighting pioneer, will feature two “carry-on” traveling lighting kits in its booth at Government Video Expo 2013.

The Sola ENG Flight Kit is a three-fixture LED Fresnel lighting kit in an FAA carry-on size case. It is built around the efficient and lightweight Litepanels Sola ENG Fresnels that can be powered by a battery or A/C source.

Sola ENG fixtures incorporate a three-inch Fresnel lens that emits an even collimated light source that can be focused and controlled for maximum flexibility. Sola ENGs are designed for on-camera and portable use, and offer focusable output comparable to a 100W HMI, while requiring only 30W to power each fixture. These compact, yet powerful fixtures offer a dimmable and focusable daylight-balanced source, so you have everything you need to work on the fly.

The versatile light kit is designed for easy travel, quick set-up and operation. At just 30 pounds, the Litepanels Sola ENG Flight Kit can be carried on-board commercial planes and stows neatly in overhead bins. Travelers will appreciate the included compact light stands, AC adaptors, gels and softbox that all fit neatly in the custom-designed case. Case also features a retractable extension handle and smooth-rolling polyurethane wheels.

Building on the popularity of the Sola ENG Flight Kit, Litepanels offers the new Croma Flight Kit. Lightweight and compact, this kit fits the needs of today’s run-and-gun, interview or location shooting applications. It includes three Croma LED fixtures and associated diffusion gels, mounting hardware, AC Power Supplies and compact light stands.

“We’ve also included a Manfrotto Spring Clamp for use when a light source is needed in tight or confined locations, and there is still room in the case to add two more fixtures,” explains Chris Marchitelli, marketing vice president for Litepanels.

Packed in the same trolley-style hard case with a custom designed, rigid foam insert, the gear is secure, portable and fits neatly into airplane overhead storage, greatly reducing baggage costs and damaged or lost luggage.
