New Litepanels Studio X Broadcast LED Fresnel Lights Released
Litepanels has just released a new lineup of LED fresnel lights mainly designed for broadcast and studio use: the Litepanels Studio X. At launch, six models are available with a power output ranging from 60 to 360W. All Studio X fixtures are bi-color from 2700K to 6500K, you can adjust the beam angle precisely from flood to spot, and all offer DMX, RDM, and local control to continuously dim the light from 0 to 100%. Let’s take a closer look at these!
Litepanels is well-known for its LED panels like the Gemini 2×1 Hard which we had a first look at during Cine Gear. In addition, the company partnered with Quartzcolor to produce new LED Fresnel fixtures for broadcast and studio use: the Litepanels Studio X.
Litepanels Studio X features
At launch, the Litepanels Studio X lineup consists of six models:
- Studio X2: 60W – 5″ lens size
- Studio X3: 100W – 5″ lens size
- Studio X4: 150W – 7″ lens size
- Studio X5: 200W – 10″ lens size
- 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 to light talents.
You can precisely adjust the beam angle of each light thanks to a knob at the back of the fixture. Each Litepanels Studio X light has a different beam angle, but the minimum adjustment is 10 to 49°.
The Litepanels Studio X LED lights are primarily designed for studio use, so they all feature a 5-pin XLR DMX input, a mini-USB port, and RDM control.
Price and availability
All lights are available to preorder 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.
