Fluotec, a Mexican lighting manufacturer, has launched two new LED fresnels designed for professional photography and film-making.
The Vegalux Plus is a 7″ LED fresnel with a motorised zoom lens (13–47°) that can be set remotely using DMX control. The light draws 185 watts of power and has stepless brightness adjustment from 0–100%. Special “Halodim” firmware allows dimming with no colour shifts, according to the manufacturer. Emitted light has a colour rendering index (CRI) of 93+. The lamp weighs 6.6 kg (14 lbs).
The Auralux Plus is a 5.5″ LED fresnel drawing 146 watts of power. It has a manual zoom (12–47°) and, like the Vegalux, claims stable output across the 0–100% intensity range with a CRI of 93+. It also has DMX control of power levels. The unit tips the scales at 5.1 kg (11.3 lbs).
Both Vegalux and Auralux are available in either daylight (5600K) or tungsten-balanced (3200K) colour temperature versions. They include barndoors and filter holders.
Shipping to US-based dealers is expected to start in 1–2 months. For more information, visit the manufacturer’s web site, or for US distribution, see fluotecusa.com. Fluotec will be exhibiting at the InfoComm 2015 trade fair in Orlando, Florida on 17–19 June.
