The Litepanels Difference
Visually accurate Daylight, Tungsten and Variable Color Balanced Fixtures
Litepanels offers LED lighting fixtures that are daylight balanced, tungsten balanced, and for some fixtures, variable color balance that can be dialed to any color temperature between daylight and tungsten. Take control of your lighting environment by matching any ambient color temperature or creating your own with high-quality, custom-made LED fixtures.
Proper thermal management ensuring consistent performance
Achieve a serious ROI and enjoy years of maintenance-free performance with LEDs that are properly cooled and not overdriven, resulting in tens of thousands of hours without refocusing or changing a bulb. Litepanels LED fixtures are moderated to provide accurate color temperature and consistent illumination for a long, long time to provide the best return on investment.
Litepanels has always been committed to protecting the environment by not using any hazardous materials in the construction of our LED lighting fixtures. The fixtures themselves can be recycled at the end of their lifecycle. Every Litepanels fixture is free from the harmful UV emissions found in more traditional lighting sources.
Shoot confidently at any frame rate or shutter angle without experiencing flicker or partially exposed images. Flicker-free light output is not an inherent quality of LEDs, but it is with every Litepanels unit thanks to our analogue dimming system.

DMG Lumiere by Rosco

Introducing MIX® from DMG Lumière and Rosco – an LED fixture that will change how filmmakers create coloured light on set.
Since the dawn of coloured cinema, set lighting professionals have put Rosco gels on tungsten or daylight balanced fixtures to create coloured light. That time-honoured process has recently shifted to colour-mixing LED technology, which has its own limitations. MIX, like any fixture engineered by DMG Lumière, was designed by technicians for technicians to address the issues that set lighting crew members have voiced about the colour-mixing LED fixtures they’re working with today. The features of the new MIX®LED technology provide superior colour, easy-to-use control interfaces and other innovative solutions that enable filmmakers to create the precise colour of light they want while speeding up their workflow.
True Rosco Colour Inside
MIX®provides the best Rosco gel matches of any colour mixing LED source. Other LED lights claim to create Rosco gel matches and, in some cases, they’re successful at it. There are some colours, however, that those lights just can’t make – usually because they’re limited by the colour space of their LEDs.
MIX®features 6-LED colour mixing: Red + Lime + Green + Blue + Amber + White. This enables it to generate a wider gamut of colours than RGBW or RGBA fixtures. In addition, the Red and Lime emitters in the array are manufactured exclusively for MIX – meaning that it can create colours, tones, and hues that are only available from a MIX light.
Enhanced Lighting Workflow
The set lighting technicians at DMG Lumière know that speed is of the essence when you’re on set. This was the key factor when designing the user interface for MIX®. There are no menus! Simply choose between three different modes and then choose the colour temperature, colour or Rosco gel colour you desire from there.
Gel Mode:Not only are you able to select from a vast library of Rosco gel colours, you’re also able to modify the hue, saturation, and green/magenta shift of the gel colour as-needed.
White Mode:Access a wide range of tunable white light from daylight to tungsten, including precise green/magenta correction.
Colour Mode:Navigate through the MIX®colour space using the 360° hue wheel to choose a colour and then set the intensity of the light output. MIX also offers the ability to desaturate colours toward several different color temperatures of white light to create different tones of the base hue.

The Redback from Hudson Spider is an everyday lighting workhorse that produces incredibly soft, powerful and controlled light with unprecedented ease.
A 37” (94cm) octagon with the natural beauty of a parabolic fixture, the bi-colour LED Redback produces flattering controlled soft light, without the necessity for flags or diffusion.
Made of aluminium, the unit weighs only 8lbs, therefore making it very easy to rig and fixed to handled booms.
Opened to its full potential, the Redback has a diameter of 94cm and folds down to a compact size of 20.5 x 30.5cm. Because of this, it makes it an ideal all round LED light to transport from location to location. Furthermore, in kit format, the fixture comes in a sturdy, wheeled case with the power, cables and diffusions.
In addition, the fixture is powered by the LiteGear LiteDimmer Plus 400AC DMX.
