Dedo lights up
T he highly anticipated range of LED lights from Dedo
is now complete, with the arrival of the DLED 2.0
and DLED 9.0.
The latest additions are available in tungsten, daylight
and bi-colour versions and feature Dedo’s double
aspheric optics which provide the huge focusing range,
clean beam and smooth light distribution that users
have come to expect.
Originally designed for film makers, and highly sought
after by television directors and stills photographers,
the dedolight is the light of choice across the industry.
Previewed at IBC 2012 and now shipping, the entire
LED range maintains the traditions and heritage of the
brand, to deliver unprecedented control over the shape,
direction and focus of the light.
David Morphy of the distributor, Cirro Lite, explains that
Dedo was unwilling merely to follow the LED trend:
“Dedo cares passionately about visual quality. It has
taken years of research, development and component
testing for the company to be absolutely certain of the
reliability and consistency of every LED bulb it uses.
As a result, these new lights are phenomenal. Light
distribution is perfectly even, dimming has no effect on
colour performance and light output is outstandingly
high.” Playout platform
