Litepanels announces new low profile fixture
Litepanels has announced the 1x1 Low Profile LED lighting fixture — designed to mount flat against a ceiling or wall while protruding only 3in from the surface.
The 3in protrusion results in practically no loss of headroom or room space. Because the LED bulbs on the Low Profile are tilted at 40 degrees off-axis, the light is projected forward from the fixture to softly light the subject. The fixture is ideal for low headroom shooting situations.
The Low Profile draws little power and can be operated off 12V DC power (available in vehicles). The fixtures are cool to the touch, even when operating, so they add no heat to a cramped space. And they are dimmable, via DMX or a control on the fixture itself, with no noticeable shift in color temperature.
Litepanels Low Profile fixtures are available in Flood (5600 and 3200 degree K), as well as Spot and SuperSpot configurations (5600 degree K).
