Litepanels, a developer of light emitting diode (LED) lighting, and a Vitec Group brand, unveils its “Litepanels’ H2 Hi-Output LED lights.”
The new fixtures answer the need for an LED fixture capable of throwing illumination over a distance of up to 25 feet (7.6 meters), providing high-definition friendly lights with all the advantages of Litepanels proprietary LED fixtures, the company says in a written statement.
The new H2 Hi-Output uses an array of 72 one-Watt daylight LEDs that are focused to a 10 degree angle to produce light that is 5600°K color balanced, the firm says. The H2 fixtures integrate perfectly into sets or locations utilizing other Litepanels fixtures, providing wide-spectrum daylight (5600°K) color balance illumination, it adds.
Like all Litepanels LED fixtures, the H2 fixtures provide their light output while remaining energy efficient, according to the company. The 100W H2 fixtures provide light equivalent to a 1000W legacy lighting fixture, utilizing just 10 percent of the energy. Because H2 lights generate no noticeable heat, the need for power-hungry air conditioning is reduced.
The H2 fixtures provide the same dimming capabilities as other Litepanels fixtures as well as dimming from 100 percent to zero with no noticeable color change. Dimming can be achieved using a control knob located on the fixture, or from a DMX dimmer board. H2 fixtures have an integrated yoke and gimbal system for easy hanging in the grid or positioning on a light stand.
