Philips Selecon launches PLCyc LED and Studio Panel

Posted on Tuesday, April 3rd, 2012

Following the unprecedented success of the PL1 LED spot and PL3 LED wash lights in the TV and theatre markets; Selecon launched two new LED lighting products, in the same range, at Frankfurt Pro Light and Sound 2012 – The Studio Panel and the PLCyc.

The Studio Panel is an LED soft light featuring: variable colour temperature from 2700K up to 6000K using a mixture of amber and white LEDs. Drawing just 60W of power at any voltage the Studio Panel can be powered via a four pin XLR direct from the TV camera or via a powercon connector direct from the mains. This means that on location the luminaire can be powered from the camera alone. Three onboard buttons and a wheel enable the user to quickly adjust the colour temperature, dimming intensity and access a number of preset colour temperatures. Alternatively the luminaire can be controlled remotely via DMX. Available from April 2012.

The Philips Selecon PLCyc LED builds on the technology of PL1 spot and PL3 wash luminaires and uses a mixing chamber designed to homogenize the RGBW colours. The front of the mixing chamber has a holograph diffuser to complete beam homogenisation and, with the added elliptical reflector system, the unit creates an asymmetric beam and distribution. The luminaire can be used on cycloramas, backdrops, and scrims up to 6 meters in height with spacing at 1.2-meter centres when placed 1.5 meters away from the backdrop. To aid additional beam shaping barndoor accessories are available.

Grant Bales-Smith, Sales Manager United Kingdom, Scandinavia & Benelux for Philips Selecon says: “We had an amazing show at Frankfurt. There was a great turn out and the new products were received with enthusiasm by our dealers and the end user.”
