LED Engin, Inc announces the Studio White range of cool white LED emitters for designers of broadcast and studio lighting. The application demands high CRI in daylight color temperatures to make people look natural under artificial light. This is normally achieved using high intensity discharge (HID) arc lamps. However, such lamps are bulky, run very hot and need high electrical voltages from which to operate, creating potential health and fire hazards. They also suffer from deteriorating performance with age. LED Engin's Studio White emitters allow lighting designers to create fixtures that are smaller, lighter, deliver consistent performance over time, do not get excessively hot and run from safe, low voltages. They feature a daylight color temperature of 5300K, a color rendering index (CRI) of greater than 85 and R9 red content of 50 which results in natural rendering of skin tones and other colors. Standard daylight white LED emitters do not match this performance... read all
LED Engin offers Studio White emitters in a range of package sizes for different power ratings from 10W to 80W, delivering between 600 and 4400 lumens output. The emitters, based on the company's LuxiGen technology platform, have the lowest thermal resistance per footprint for reliable, high flux density designs in a sleek, small form factor.
LED Engin also offers a complementary range of total internal reflection (TIR) lenses ranging from 9° narrow spot to 50° wide flood beam versions. The compact emitter/ lens combination produces uniform lighting on the target area, smooth beam profiles and minimizes light outside the target area, reducing unwanted glare compared to HID and larger LED array solutions.
David Tahmassebi, President and CEO of LED Engin, comments, Our Studio White emitters meet the specific color temperature and color quality requirements of general studio lighting to fulfill a need that cannot be met with standard daylight white LEDs. These new emitters deliver best-in-class flux and color stability over time thanks to our technically advanced LuxiGen platform.
