(Amsterdam IBC, Netherlands--September 11, 2012) Fresh off the rapid adoption by the industry of the color-controllable L7-C, ARRI introduces a new addition to the popular L-Series LED Fresnels in a dedicated tungsten model -- the L7-T. As a single-color, 3200 K tungsten version of the popular L7-C, the L7-T provides in excess of 30% more light while maintaining the same size and weight. It offers the same calibrated color quality at a more affordable price than the L7-C, and is particularly suited to applications requiring maximum intensity for a given fixture size.
L-Series fixtures reduce electricity usage by 75% and further savings are brought about by the exceptional life span of the LED light engine, which lasts around 200 times longer than a conventional tungsten lamp; the reduced maintenance and minimized power distribution combine with other cost-saving attributes such as built-in dimming to provide a rapid return on investment for both studio and location applications.
Both the L7-C and the new L7-T are premiering an active cooling option with reduced size and weight, making them perfect for location shoots, portable lighting kits and space constrained studios.
L7 lampheads provide the same light quality and simplicity-of-use as conventional tungsten Fresnels, and can easily be used alongside them. This allows studio facilities to make a gradual transition from older tungsten fixtures to the L-Series, spreading the cost over a longer period without workflow inefficiencies or changes to working practices.
