Prolights Releases EclPanel TWCXL ‘Ultra-Bright’ LED Soft Panel
Prolights has released the EclPanel TWCXL, its largest soft light to date — a so-called “ultra-bright” LED soft panel with a large light aperture for large-scale productions and long-throw applications. The 1,500W RGB+WW LED source outputs over 136,000 lumens and includes a full range of white tones, from daylight to tungsten, “attaining a superior light quality with high CRI, TLCI and TM-30 values,” according to the company.
The panel has a CCT range from 1,800K to 20,000K, color modes like HSI, RGBW, gels, source emulation and XY coordinates, and is equipped with W-DMX and CRMX. There are also 48 sections with individual control to play the customizable cinema effects or by pixel mapping media content. The new fixture also has a network connection for Art-Net and s/ACN, onboard drivers and a built-in power supply. There is also a redesigned user interface with a bigger color LCD display, an intuitive stand-alone interface and the possibility to store color and setup macros.
Prolights says its recent success of soft lights in major Hollywood productions has contributed to the improvement of several onboard software features, like a wide PWM range up to 40KHz, lower fan noises for silent applications, a high-resolution mode at low dimmer value, and a new dimming curve that offers a 16-bit dimming experience while using an 8-bit dimmer. The EclPanel TWCXL is also Spektra calibrated, joining the rest of the lineup with the same color calibration standard.
The newly released version has similar accessories available as the other fixtures, including beam-shaping accessories by DoP Choice — like the SnapBag and SnapGrid — four different diffusers, and more. Prolights also designed a flight case specially made to accommodate one panel and all the filters and accessories needed for any production.
