SAN DIEGO, Calif., Sept. 10, 2019 - Litra, a global award-winning professional adventure lighting company, is announcing their revolutionary new RGBWW light, LitraStudio™, at IBC in Amsterdam. LitraStudio™ is the world’s most powerful and portable RGBWW light for photo and video. With over a million unique colors available to creators anytime, anywhere, the LitraStudio is an entirely new category of studio lighting. Compact enough to fit in a small camera bag yet capable of producing up to 3,000 Lumen of continuous light and up to 6,000 Lumen of flash, this full featured light allows photographers and videographers to light their world in a whole new way, no cords attached.
Litra is pushing the boundaries of studio lighting when it comes to size, durability, and versatility, by delivering fully tunable, studio quality lighting that can be used in any imaginable location on the planet. The precision designed microstructure lens delivers a smooth and even light pattern with no center hotspot or harsh edges. The LitraStudio is also flicker free at all shutter angles and features a 97 CRI and TLCI color accuracy, enabling photographers and filmmakers to create with true color.
The complete light fixture, display, mounting, and internal battery weighs in at 33.5 oz (950g) with a size of 5.5" x 3.9" x 2.9" (140mm x 100mm x 50.75mm). With its ultra compact form factor, the LitraStudio packs an impressive punch. There is no other fixture on the market that delivers this much power per inch and per ounce. Its portable nature empowers content creators to expand its applications beyond traditional studio setups and bring their wildest visions to life.
“We have had a tremendous year of growth and global success with our LitraTorch and LitraPro, and now we are very excited to be launching our newest and most advanced lighting platform,” said Scott Gant, President of Litra. “Litra set out to build the smallest most powerful RGBWW light fixture available on the market, capable of delivering uncompromised studio quality lighting. The LitraStudio is a new category of professional video and photo lighting allowing creators to light a scene in traditional studio settings or in any imaginable location and extreme environment.”
The LitraStudio features a range of fully tunable color settings, including CCT, HSI, RGBWW, Gel Presets, Effects, and Flash modes that can all be adjusted in real time. The CCT mode provides 2,000-10,000K adjustable bi-color lighting, with green and magenta shift control to allow for tunable blue and green screen optimization. In HSI mode, users have full control over hue, saturation, and intensity and can select precise color preferences from over one million possible combinations. The Gel mode provides commonly used gels with simulated daylight or tungsten light sources, while the Effects mode offers presets for party, police, paparazzi, candle, and other commonly used lighting environment simulations. The Flash mode allows camera flash synchronization and the DMX control allows for precision control of multiple lights and integration into industry standard gear when used with a custom LitraStudio DMX Dongle.
The LitraStudio is 0-100% fully dimmable with a 50 degree beam angle, allowing creators to effectively project any desired hue and saturation. It can also be used with Litra’s custom built soft box, barn doors, and honeycomb grids, as well as other traditional light modifiers to soften and shape the light further. With its precision functionality, creators can quickly and accurately reproduce surrounding light sources for consistency or create an entirely new environment by adjusting the settings to their own preferences.
The built-in OLED display and easy-to-use controls allow users to operate the light manually or connect via Bluetooth to the Litra smartphone application for remote control. The Litra app lets users control single or multiple lights with factory or user defined presets. With minimal effort and time, television and video teams can set up and tear down a fully controllable studio in the most remote locations. No matter the setup, all settings can be dynamically adjusted while shooting real time.
Its armor-clad, waterproof form factor makes the LitraStudio distinctly rugged and ready for the inevitable bumps, drops and spills of filmmaking, all while delivering uncompromised performance and control. The 100% aluminum body is waterproof up to 30 feet, drop and crush proof to MIL-SPEC 810 standards, and serves as an exceptionally effective and efficient passive thermal management solution with no moving parts, no noise, and no vibration. The LitraStudio combines high quality RGBWW light output with endless creative flexibility, in an ultra portable and durable build that the industry has never before experienced.
The LitraStudio exceeds run time expectations for portable lighting solutions, lasting up to 20 hours on the lowest setting. At 2,400 Lumen, the LitraStudio’s built-in lithium-ion 9,000 mAh capacity battery provides an impressive one hour run time, a best-in-class feature. When more light is needed, the LitraStudio has an overdrive mode to boost power to 3,000 Lumen. The batteries are fast swappable and can be powered externally while in use if needed. The battery can also be used as a stand-alone power bank to charge the rest of your camera gear. Each light comes with a quick charge type-C adapter allowing a one hour recharge time.
This versatile light surpasses expectations of traditional studio lighting and meets the very high quality of light output required for professional video and TV production. The LitraStudio was designed with a range of custom accessories and to work seamlessly with traditional modifiers and mounts to meet set production needs and integrate with traditional video, DSLR and action sports video equipment. With the limitless possibilities of LitraStudio, creators can now unleash the power of their imagination and create any color, anywhere.
The innovative design and technology of the LitraStudio is patent pending. The LitraStudio will be announced at IBC, Amsterdam in September 2019 and will be available for purchase and distribution in October 2019. Priced at under 650 USD, there is simply no better performance-to-value light on the market. The LitraStudio will undoubtedly become the "must have" lighting product in all photo, video, and TV production tool kits.
