The AREA 48 Soft LED operates on 110-240 VDC as well as 10-20 VDC for Battery operation with HD-friendly 98 TLCI soft light output is comparable to a 1200 Watt traditional soft light while drawing only 122 watts and represents the next-generation in lighting technology for studio and location work. BB&S new integrated LED technology moves the phosphor away from the LED itself, thereby greatly improving color rendering, consistency, and light output. The system’s color rendering accuracy is up to 98 TLCI with multiple power options including an integrated battery or standard AC power. The Power Supply is mounted with metal clamps to hold PSU on the Yoke and has a locking AC Cable. Moreover, the phosphor panels themselves are interchangeable, allowing you to quickly change the fixture from Daylight to Tungsten, to Chroma-Green, all in a matter of seconds.

BB&S AREA 48 Soft LED has High-Output, Great Color, and the option to Run on Gold Mount or V-Lock 10 Amp or higher Batteries at full power!
