Litepanels, a Vitec Group brand and provider of LED lighting for the broadcast and production industries, has launched its new Brick and Brick One Light Kit. Now more robust, the Brick Bi-Color provides an on-camera solution for on-the-go ENG cameramen, especially for those in wet conditions.
Building on the legacy MiniPlus, the new Brick Bi-Color’s high CRI and TLCI surface-mount LEDs, with custom-designed optics, provide accurate colour temperature adjustability. The tightly binned LEDs also produce a light output that is up to four times brighter than the original MiniPlus, resulting in a longer throw that effectively allows the Brick to illuminate a larger area. By having a comparable luminance output of 100W, it offers up to 1060 LUX (98 Footcandles) at 5ft (1.5M) while only drawing 16.5W.
The Brick can also provide both Daylight and Tungsten lighting. With ultra-smooth dimming from 0-100%, it is not only flicker free at any frame rate or shutter angle, but the Brick also has no noticeable colour shift throughout its entire range.
The Brick One Light Kit consists of a half-white diffusion gel, a Manfrotto 244 Micro articulating arm, a 6ft (1.8 m) international power supply, a 60° Honeycomb frame, a soft diffusion frame, and a waterproof hard case with custom foam for safe transportation. Optional accessories for the Brick include an Anton/Bauer QRG-LG plate and an Anton/Bauer Power Tap extension.
