Litepanels markets 1x1 Bi-Color LED light
Litepanels introduced the 1x1 Bi-Color Light — a single fixture capable of generating a color temperature of either 3200°K or 5600°K, or an infinite range of color temperatures in between.
Until now, when photographers faced a change of lighting conditions between daylight and tungsten, they’ve either had to change lighting fixtures entirely, relamp the fixture, or use light-robbing filtration in front of the fixture.
The Bi-Color name comes from its design, which incorporates both 3200°K and 5600°K LEDs. The fixture can vary the mix between tungsten and daylight LEDs to set the resulting color temperature. This allows a crew to carry one light or set of lights to cover both tungsten and daylight ambient light conditions.
Color temperature can be dialed in by using either the onboard dial or digital color temperature settings, or via a built-in DMX lighting controller. The fixture features a full-range integrated dimmer that enables instant dimming from zero to 100 percent with minimum shift in color.
The lamp requires less than 10 percent of the electricity needed to power standard lighting fixtures. Because Litepanels fixtures generate practically no heat, there is an additional savings in the energy that would otherwise be required for air-conditioning.
The Bi-Color can be powered from a variety of 12V to 30V sources, including an optional battery, car battery, or AC adapter.
