Photon Beard Launch Light Panel At NAB

News Image
Photon Beard, the UK lighting solutions providers for broadcast, film and video, have launched a new one-foot square fluorescent lighting panel that, the company claims, "produces more light, and is more economic than other 1'x1' fixtures in the marketplace".
The panel includes eight 5/82 diameter fluorescent tubes that use the same Osram daylight or tungsten balanced phosphors that have become industry standard in television studios around the world.
This provides predictable colour results with fewer spikes and spectral variations typically associated with similar LED-based fixtures.
At only 64W, Photon Beard's new panel delivers similar output at three meters to comparable fixtures pulling 100W; it is dimmable and can be powered from either mains or a 'V' mount camera battery for around one hour.
According to Photon Beard Managing Director Peter Daffarn: "While not aimed at studio lighting applications, the consistent, high quality light, portability and low heat benefits are ideal for both broadcast and film, either for on-the-fly pieces to camera or in relatively confined spaces like, for example, a car."
