Zylight to Showcase F8 LED Fresnel at IBC 2013

Zylight will showcase its range of LED lighting systems, including the new F8 LED Fresnel, at IBC 2013, which runs Sept. 13-17 in Amsterdam. Available in tungsten (3200K) or daylight (5600K) versions, the compact F8 folds flat – collapsing to less than four inches thick – for easy transport and storage. With a CRI (color rendering index) of 97 or better, the fully-dimmable F8 offers an adjustable beam spread (16-70 degrees) for even coverage for widescreen productions. It maintains single shadow traditional Fresnel beam shaping through an eight-inch SCHOTT glass lens, and offers a patented focusing system for spot and flood operations.

The F8’s LED engine with quantum dot technology provides a cool, energy efficient light, for a Fresnel instrument, but does not compromise performance. While it draws only 100 watts, it has close to the light output of a traditional 1000-watt Fresnel. It is also water resistant (IP54) for use in challenging location conditions, and can be powered by a worldwide AC adapter or standard 14.4V camera battery.

“We’ve designed the F8 to be a versatile, rugged light for studio and location work,” said Zylight president Joe Arnao. “It’s bright like an HMI, but better suited for run-and-gun news ENG applications. You just snap on a battery and go. In the studio, the F8 saves space and costs less to operate than traditional Fresnels.”

The F8 is also equipped with ZyLink wireless technology, which makes it easy to link multiple Zylights for simultaneous remote control. As a result, several F8s can be grouped together and linked for lighting scenarios. The F8 can also be controlled via DMX.
