About Lowel Prime Location
The new Lowel Prime Location LED is designed for lighting in the real world. With high output spread over a wide 50-degree beam angle, this 1x1 LED panel features a very rugged housing and a high IP-65 rating. An IP (Ingress Protection) rating of 65 means Prime Location LEDs can be used in rain, sand or dust storms.
Where most production LED 1x1 panels are manufactured using inexpensive materials with flimsy bodies, the rugged all-metal housing of Prime Location LED makes it perfect for the real world of rental houses and grip trucks.
Its AC connections use Powercon AC bridging between fixtures to reduce the need for multiple AC outlets. Prime Location LEDs also come with your choice of V-lock or Anton Bauer Gold Mount battery plates for DC operation. The lights are available in hi-CRI Daylight, Tungsten or Bi-Color models, and are dimmable without color shift. Their lite diffusion front-piece greatly helps reduce LED multi-shadow.
Light control accessories and kit combinations are available. The Lowel Prime Location LED is perfect for ENG / EFP and the small location studio setups of the real world.
About Lowel PRO Power LED
Lowel PRO Power LED is a compact, focusing light available in hi-CRI Tungsten or Daylight color with impressive output and a wide fresnel 8:1 focus range. Where other LEDs are lower power and therefore need to be used closer to the subject, the PRO Power LED can light from a greater distance, allowing the shooter to get more of the location into the wide shot.
The light is dimmable without color shift, works with either AC power or its proprietary DC accessory battery system, which clamp-mounts to the light stand to improve balance and stability, but can also be used with a shoulder strap for handheld lighting; and has a selection of accessory light control and mounting options. Its available alone or in kit combinations. The Lowel PRO light is perfect for run & gun ENG or even small location studio setups.
Lowel has always gone the extra mile in quality of design and product manufacturing. Most companies simply make single fixtures, but not lighting kits. Lowel pioneered the concept of location lighting kits, making them as versatile and dependable as possible while keeping the kits compact and easy to travel with.
