LOS ANGELES – Zylight, a manufacturer of LED lighting solutions, will demonstrate its new F8 LED Fresnel at Government Video Expo 2013, which runs Dec. 4-5 in Washington, D.C. (Booth 838). Although the F8 draws only 100 watts, it produces almost as much light as a traditional incandescent 1000-watt Fresnel fixture. In addition, the F8 collapses to less than four inches thick for easy transport and storage.
“The F8 LED Fresnel is a great choice for government agencies that need to update their studio lighting grids, because it is much more energy efficient than traditional Fresnels and generates almost no heat,” said Charlie Collias, senior vice president for worldwide sales at Zylight. “It’s also a great light on location because it’s water resistant, easy to transport, and you can plug it in or power it with a camera battery.”
Available in tungsten (3200K) or daylight (5600K) versions, the fully dimmable F8 maintains single-shadow traditional Fresnel beam shaping. Equipped with an eight-inch Schott glass lens, the F8 features a patented focusing system for spot and flood operations. With a CRI (color rendering index) of 97 or better, its beam spread is adjustable between 16-70 degrees for even coverage for widescreen productions.
Like other Zylight models, the F8 is equipped with ZyLink wireless technology, which makes it easy to link multiple Zylights for simultaneous remote control. The F8 ships with barn doors and yoke mount, but additional accessories are available separately.
Zylight will also demonstrate its IS3c LED light, an updated version of its acclaimed IS3 large-panel cyclorama and beauty light, at GV Expo 2013. Now shipping with a custom soft box produced exclusively by Chimera, the fully dimmable IS3c is a wide, high-output soft light with built-in controls for adjusting color temperature, color correction, and Zylight’s Color Mode, which produces millions of colors without gels or filters.
