ETC debuts Source Four LED Studio HD spotlight
Posted on Wednesday, March 27th, 2013
“White is the presence of all colours. ETC wanted to make a white-light LED spotlight that would be worthy of professional broadcast, film, and video production,” says ETC’s Matt Armendariz-Kerr. So ETC has released the new Source Four LED Studio HD, which utilises the colour technology of ETC’s Selador x7 Colour System for a more spectrally complete white light that can be finely tuned to the on screen talent.
With a special recipe of LED colour blending, the Studio HD is designed to perform in a high definition production world where people (with varying flesh tones) need to look their best. The Studio HD combines exceptional light output with an ultra-flexible, variable white light (2700K-6500K), for more accurate colour rendition on camera.
A multipurpose tool, the Source Four LED Studio HD is ideal for key, bounce, smooth or textured lighting. And as a Source Four fixture, the Studio HD offers a sharp, clean beam with precision optics.
With an adjustable PWM output (920-1500Hz and the new high 25K mode), Studio HD’s flicker-free options prevent the undesirable side effects that commonly arise when using LEDs with high speed and rolling shutter cameras.
And no external controller is necessary – with stand-alone functions and controls right on the back of each fixture, the Studio HD is a smart addition to the professional lighting kit. Settings and presets can be easily copied to multiple Source Four LED or ETC Selador Desire luminaires, via just one master fixture, making the lighting designer’s job easier and faster.
The Source Four LED Studio HD comes in fixed or variable-focus zoom models. A convenient permanent-installation soft focus diffuser kit is also available.
