Photon Beard Arrives at NAB 2013 With ‘Square One’
Full spectrum, compact light panel
LEIGHTON BUZZARD, ENGLAND -- Photon
Beard has launched “Square One,” a new one-foot square fluorescent lighting panel.
Square One includes
eight 5/8-inch diameter fluorescent tubes that deliver broadcast-quality illumination
with predictable color results and fewer spikes and spectral variations typically
associated with similarly sized LED-based fixtures, according to the maker.
Square One uses
the familiar Osram daylight or tungsten-balanced phosphors that are the current
standard in television studios around the world. The difference is that at only
64 W, Square One delivers a level of balanced illumination at three meters that
fixtures pulling 100 W struggle to achieve, the company said. Square One is also
dimmable for maximum flexibility and can be powered either direct from AC power
or for approximately one hour with a ‘V’ mount camera battery. Photon Beard will
be in booth No. C11432.
