New Zylight F8-200 LED Fresnel Matches 2K Tungsten Brightness
Zylight, a leading manufacturer of innovative, premium LED lighting solutions, unveiled the F8-200 LED Fresnel today at the 2015 NAB Show (Booth C8043), which runs through April 16 in Las Vegas, Nev. Designed to be compact for field use, the new addition to the F8 product line delivers the brightness of a 2,000-watt Tungsten or 400-watt HMI fixture, but can be powered by AC or two 14.4V standard Gold Mount or V-Mount batteries.
“Our customers have been asking for more brightness and the F8-200 delivers,” said Joe Arnao, president of Zylight. “Of course, brightness by itself isn’t good enough for Zylight. Our quantum dot technology delivers a far more refined and balanced natural light without generating the heat of a typical HMI. Location shooting just a lot brighter and a lot cooler.”
Built on the same chassis as Zylight’s award-winning F8-100, the F8-200 includes an active cooling system, collapses to less than five inches thick for easy transport, and is water resistant (IP54) for use in challenging conditions. It also maintains many of the features of the original F8-100, including an adjustable beam spread (16-70 degrees) and Zylight’s patented focusing system for spot and flood operations. It has a high CRI (color rendering index) as well as a high TLCI (Television Lighting Consistency Index), and an eight-inch SCHOTT glass lens maintains single shadow traditional Fresnel beam shaping.
The portable F8-200 can be powered by AC adapter and used as part of a studio lighting grid. With built-in DMX and ZyLink wireless technology, it can also be linked with multiple Zylights for simultaneous remote control. The F8-200 ships with barn doors and yoke mount, and is available in tungsten (3200K) or daylight (5600K) versions.
Zylight is also demonstrating the Newz, its new on-camera LED light, at NAB for the first time. Designed for ENG shoots, it delivers a soft but punchy light that complements skin tones. The variable white light includes brightness settings from tungsten to daylight, and its unique articulated arm design and custom barn doors offer easy height and angle adjustments.
The F8-200 will be available in Summer 2015. The Newz has an MSRP of $429 and will be available in May.
