Launch of Litepanels Studio X Broadcast LED Fresnel Lights
Litepanels has just released a new range of LED Fresnel lamps primarily designed for broadcast and studio use: the Litepanels Studio X. At launch, six models are available with output power ranging from 60 to 360W. All Studio X fixtures are bi-color from 2700K to 6500K, you can fine-tune the beam angle from fixture to fixture, and all offer DMX, RDM and local control to continuously dim the light from 0-100%. Let’s take a closer look!
Litepanels is well known for its LED panels like the Gemini 2×1 Hard which we first got a glimpse of during Cine Gear. Additionally, the company has partnered with Quartzcolor to produce new LED Fresnel fixtures for broadcast and studio use: the Studio X Litepanels.
Studio X Litepanel Features
At launch, the Litepanels Studio X range consists of six models:
- Studio X2: 60W – 5″ lens size
- Studio X3: 100W – 5″ lens
- Studio X4: 150W – 7″ lens size
- Studio X5: 200W – 10″ lens
- Studio X6: 300W – 10″ lens size
- Studio X7: 360W – 14″ lens size
All Studio X fixtures are bi-color and you can adjust the CCT range from 2700K to 6500K. Daylight and Tungsten only versions are also available. According to Litepanels, the CRI/TLCI of each light is over 97, which should produce a “naturally realistic” source for lighting talent.
You can fine-tune the beam angle of each light with a knob on the back of the fixture. Each Litepanels Studio X light has a different beam angle, but the minimum setting is 10-49°.
Litepanels Studio X LED lights are primarily designed for studio use, so they all feature a 5-pin XLR DMX input, mini-USB port and RDM control.
Price and availability
All of the lights are available for pre-order now, starting at $1,900. You can choose between a standard or pole-operated yoke mount, and you’ll find a 10-foot power cable and barn doors in the package.
