AMSTERDAM, NETHERLANDS –
a brand of The Vitec Group, and the world’s premier provider of batteries, chargers, lighting and other mobile power systems for the professional broadcast, video and film industries, is introducing its new
LED EledZ and ULHM-LED light modules
at IBC 2009 (Stand 9.D28b). Together with Litepanels®, a sister Vitec Group brand, Anton/Bauer has developed the signature EledZ and ULHM-LED LED lights to complement the UltraLight® Series and ElipZ® battery system.
“We are happy to finally provide an LED lighting solution for our customers,” says Martyn Sly-Jex, regional sales manager for EMEA. “With the additional power draw from today’s cameras, customers need a way to maximize their battery run-time. The EledZ and ULHM-LED lights successfully cut down on the total power consumption of a user’s lights, giving them an easy way to extend the run-time and battery power.”
Designed for use with the popular Anton/Bauer ElipZ 10K battery, the EledZ is an integral LED light perfect for today’s smaller handheld cameras. When used with the ElipZ battery system, the EledZ (5.5”W x 4”H x 1.5”D/13.9 x 10.16 x 3.81 cm) produces heat-free and flicker-free soft bright light of 5600K and weighs a mere 110g (4 ounces). Consuming only 4.5 watts, the EledZ includes a dimmer which allows for light output adjustments from 0-100%, with very minimal color change. With the ElipZ 10K battery, the typical run-time for powering the EledZ and a camera is five hours. The light output is 52fc (560 lux) at 2 feet. A filter is included with the kit which allows a user to change color temperature down to 3200K as necessary.
The ULHM-LED is an LED head module designed for use with the world’s most popular on-camera light, the Anton/Bauer UltraLight. The versatility of the UltraLight Head Module has been its most beneficial feature over the past 20 years, allowing a videographer to quickly change to an HMI (UltraDAYlight) or carry a spare head module. Now, with the development of the ULHM-LED, a videographer can maximize their investment with the choice of using tungsten, HMI or LED lighting with the same light base.
The ULHM-LED head module (5.680”W x 4.09”H x 1.650”D/14.43 x10.39 x 4.19 cm) weighs only 300g (10.5 oz) and provides heat-free and flicker free soft bright light of 5600K. With a very low power consumption of 9 watts, the added ability to dim the light from 0-100% with minimal color temperature change makes this the most efficient LED light available. The ULHM-LED head module puts out 100fc (1100 lux) at 2 feet while consuming a third of the power of a tungsten light. A filter is included with the package which allows users to change the color temperature down to 3200K as required.
