BB&S introduced the Area 48 color this year at LDI this year. The Area 48 color uses 150 watts and 12,000-lumen output as well as delivers stunning saturated and tinted colors and clean white light in both ends of the spectrum with high CRI. The Area 48 color is color tweaking with white LEDs ( bicolor ) and in addition to that, RGB has been added. Area 48 color has an onboard touch screen for local control and of course, runs on DMX / RDM as well. There is a full range of DOP choice softboxes, snap grids and diffusers available for the Area 48 color. Features are: – High CRI all through the white range – Full (light) power in 5600K and 3200K – RGB + white + white – Excellent for strobing – Lightweight – Compact – High-quality LEDs with extreme binning system – White light range between 1800 and 10.000 Kelvin. – Plus / minus green, plus/minus magenta setting. – excellent dimming 16 bit from 0,001% to 100 % – Totally flicker-free, can be used for real high-speed shoots. – Superfast synced strobe https://www.bbslighting.com/
At 5.5 lb, the LED1000 Pro Bi-Color LED Light with V-Mount Battery Plate from Dracast is an ideal choice for location work, interviews and small sets where color accuracy, control, and flicker-free output are of major importance. The 95 CRI variable color temperature from 3200-5600K or anywhere in between means that you can quickly match the prevailing ambient or artificial light balance with a simple twist of a knob while others are still applying filters. Dimming is equally convenient via another knob that adjusts the light intensity from 100-0% with negligible color shift. The low electrical draw of just 60W means a timely return on your investment. The durable aluminum frame is supported by a sturdy, U-shaped yoke with locking knobs on each side and a standard 5/8″ receiver. The LED1000 can be used worldwide, powered by the included 100-240 VAC adapter or by optional V-Mount 14.8V batteries. Accessories include optional 4-way barn doors for contouring and control of the LED1000’s 45-degree beam angle. A carry case is included.
The Lumos Hawk LED Fresnel Line has seen a fair share of technical advancements in 2019 starting out with an increased range of variable white color temperatures referred to by Lumos as “Multi Kelvin”. The option now ranging from 2800 to 6500. This extended color temp range applies to the entire Lumos Hawk Fresnel line including the 50MK, 100MK, 150MK and 200MK.
The Lumos Hawk LED Fresnel line has a new addition, the Hawk 400. This high-powered LED Fresnel generates the tungsten equivalent light output as a 3000w Fresnel but only draws 400w. The Beam angle ranges from 15 to 50 degrees. It too is available in Daylight, Tungsten or Multi Kelvin with a CRI of +97 and comes with a 2-year factory warranty. Just like the rest of the Hawk Fresnel line, the Hawk 400 can be power by a 12 to 24VDC battery for any location shooting.
The very popular Lumos Glow Panel is now available in a 1x1 size (Glow Panel 200c) added to the already extensive selection of RGBW LED Panel sizes.
The patent-pending MIX technology features a proprietary blend of six LEDs: Red + Lime + Green + Blue + Amber + White. This enables the MAXI MIX fixture to generate a wide gamut of colors and create accurate Rosco gel matches that have been authenticated by Rosco’s color experts.
The largest and the brightest member of the MIX range of LED fixtures, the MAXI MIX is capable of producing up to 7550 Lux (@1M @5500K) – making it the perfect choice for washing your scene in bold colors, luscious tints or flattering, full-spectrum white light. MAXI MIX fixtures can also be tiled together, enabling filmmakers and studio lighting technicians to create large walls of LED light.
On the filter side, Rosco Laboratories are seeing some increase in their sales for the Opti-Sculpt, which is a product they released last year. Opti-sculpt is a 10mil polycarbonate light-shaping material available in sheets only of 24”x 20” and 24”x 40”. It comes in 11 different degree patterns—circular and linear--and is heat-resistant and flame retardant.
