NAB 2017: Litepanels Updates

I spoke with Alan Ipakchian from Vitec Group to see what’s new with Litepanels’ line of industry-standard LED fixtures. Their new Astra models offer increased brightness over the original 1×1 Astra; the Astra 3X and Astra 6X provide, as you might guess, 300% and 600%, respectively, of the 1st generation panels’ output.

For example, the Astra 3X Daylight draws only 55 watts while providing output comparable to a 200W HMI. The 3X Bi-color has the same draw and matches a 125W HMI in daylight mode or a 650W traditional fixture in tungsten mode. The new lights maintain the same form factor and will fit all accessories for existing Astras.

The Sola 4+ and Sola 6+ are upgraded versions of Litepanels’ daylight-balanced LED fresnels. Due to advances in LED efficiency and power supply design, the Sola 4+ draws only 10% more power than its predecessor, the Sola 4, but manages to more than double light output. Size, weightand most importantly priceall remain the same as the previous versions.

Be sure to stay tuned until the end of the video to hear about how to preview an exciting new lighting product from Litepanels at the show.
