Litepanels, a global provider of professional broadcast and cinematic lighting solutions and a Vitec Group brand has announced the launch of the next generation of Lykos mini LED panel lights. The new Lykos+ Bi-colour LED panel is one of the smallest in the Litepanels range but features an output 40% brighter than the previous generation, delivering an impressive 2000 lux (@3ft/1m) of accurate white light at any colour temperature from 3200-5600K.
Incorporating advanced LED and lensing technology developed for Litepanels’ popular Astra range of 1×1 panels, Lykos+ offers broadcast quality lighting – with a CRI of 96 for true-to-life colour accuracy – in a fixture that weighs just 1lb (500g). Lykos+ is the perfect light for remote locations or tight spaces, its compact size fits into any scene with the small but powerful fixture providing over two hours of operation via its built-in L-series/NPF battery mount.
“The quality of light from our Astra panels has made them industry standard for studios and news crews” said Michael Herbert, product manager, Litepanels. “Now, with the introduction of Lykos+, that same broadcast-quality level of light is available in one of our smallest, most portable fixtures”.
The versatile mini light offers multiple mounting options or can be hand-held with a sturdy hand grip. Stand mounted, taped or tied, Lykos+ is designed to integrate easily into any lighting scene. Brightness and colour temperature are controlled by two simple dials or via the Litepanels SmartLite Director iOS app with an optional Bluetooth dongle.
Lykos+ is available now from Litepanels authorized retailers as either an individual fixture or as a Flight Kit incorporating three lights, stands, filters, softbox and a Peli rolling flight case.
