Litepanels intros new Hilio High Output LED Light

By Carrie Bowden

Litepanels has rolled out the new Hilio High Output LED light, a new fixture the company says answers the need for an LED soft light capable of throwing illumination over a 20 to 25 foot (6 to 7.5 meter) distance. Hilio provides 5600°K color balance light, utilizing an array of 72 daylight LEDs that are focused to a 15° angle.

This new high output fixture provides the advantages of Litepanel’s proprietary LED technology, while remaining incredibly energy efficient. Hilio draws a paltry 125W, yet provides the luminance output of a 1000W conventional tungsten or 650W HMI.

Using either the manual on-fixture dial or remote DMX control, Hilio can be dimmed from 100% to zero without noticeable shift in color temperature. With no downtime required for re-strike, cool running Hilio is an ideal replacement for HMI fixtures in-studio or on-location.

The Hilio weighs just 13 lbs. (5.9 kg) and measures 10” x 14” x 4” (254mm H x 356mm W x 102mm D). The fixture features an integrated, infinitely adjustable gimbal mount and yoke for easy hanging in the lighting grid or positioning on a light stand.

The Hilio runs off of 120 to 240 VAC and comes with a 24 VDC AC adapter.
