Area 48 Color

The BB&S Area 48 Color, sets higher standards for dial-in, full-color as well as true white accuracy. With a similarly small footprint as standard Area 48s, the new version is the most compact full color LED panel unit on the market today.

No Color Shift During Dimming!


RGB + White + White

New Area 48 Color delivers stunning saturated and tinted colors as well as precise clean white light in both 2700°K and 5600°K. At 13,000 Lumen output, it matches the original Area 48’s famous remote phosphor daylight and tungsten color rendering at both ends of the spectrum (2500K to 10,000K). All while drawing only 160W at full power. And it is 48V!


Raises Color Accuracy Bar

Precision color is a hallmark of BB&S Lighting. To ensure the finest color rendition, BB&S utilizes RGB and both white LEDs (2700K and 5600K) that are selectively binned to produce outstanding rendition.


Soft Output Wide Dispersion

Like the Area 48 Studio and Soft, Area 48 Color fixtures can provide output comparable to a 1500W Tungsten soft light. Maximum output is available in 5600°K and 2700°K. They deliver soft light, with wide 105º dispersion at 97.5 TLCI.


Intuitive Touchscreen Operation

An on-board touchscreen offers local control or users can perform ON/OFF and color/white tweaking.  Settings for plus/minus green, plus/minus magenta facilitate accuracy. DMX 512 provides for daisy-chaining multiple fixtures.They also offer full range dimming (8/16 Bit from 0% to 100%) and run flicker-free at any framerate, to fully accommodate high speed shooting. It also accurately generates speed adjustable strobe effects within the fixtures software.


Small Footprint & Standard Accessories

BB&S Area 48 Color comes with a 48V power supply, locking AC cable and TVMP. They also feature removable barn doors to add further lighting control. OPTIONAL Soft boxes, grids and diffusion are also available.

The Area 48 Color measures just 356mm / 13.97” wide, 275mm / 10.82” high, by 115mm / 4.53” deep and weighs 5kg/ 11 pounds, so it is well suited for stands or lighting grids with the PSU mounted on the yoke.
