Posted Feb 6, 2006

Litepanels has introduced the new Litepanels 1x1 LED lighting system, available in 5600ºK flood or spot, and 3200ºK flood models. Litepanels 1x1 combines the company's hallmark ultra-efficient LED technology with a sophisticated, slimline design. The new 1x1 shares many innovative features of Litepanels' award-winning LED lights. An integrated control knob on the back enables instant dimming from 0 to100% with no shift in color. Absolutely silent and heat-free, Litepanels 1x1 can be positioned comfortably close to a subject's face, filling it with an unmatched quality of soft, wrap around light.

Engineered for quick and easy set up and operation, Litepanels 1x1 weighs just 3 lbs. (1.36kg) and measures 12" W x 12" H x 1.75" D (30.5cm x 30.5cm x 4.4 cm). This lightweight, ultra flat-profile system adapts to a variety of lighting situations. The unit's yoke allows for mounting via standard TVMP receptacle. Its housing enables multi-panel configurations, making it easy to customize to each job's specific requirements. Plus, the new 1x1 is equipped with remote dimming capability. Litepanels' groundbreaking design features a unique look-through capability.

The 1x1 incorporates a pattern of hundreds of precisely aligned mini-portals into the housing. This enables the operator to view the subject being illuminated from behind the unit.

Litepanels 1x1 runs off a variety of 9-30V sources, including a standard camera battery or car battery. The external 90-264V AC adapter supplies power through an unobtrusive 6 ft. attached input lead and 6 ft. grounded US plug/power cable. For additional lighting control, Litepanels offers an optional kit of interchangeable slide-in color/diffusion gel filters for both daylight and tungsten versions. Production models of the Litepanels 1x1 are scheduled to ship late April 2006. Prices start at $1995 list.
