Fotodiox Announces High-Intensity LED Fresnel Lights for Film and Television Powerhouse

Waukegan, Ill. – June 11, 2013 – Fotodiox, a leading manufacturer and distributor of photography and videography accessories and equipment, today announces a line of LED Fresnel lights for film, television, and studio photography work. The compact DY-200 LED Fresnel lights offer focusable, dimmable light that remains cool-to-the-touch while providing powerful light.

Available in 5600 Daylight and 3200 Tungsten color temperatures, the DY-200 and DY-200w LED Fresnel lights feature accurate flicker-free light, low power draw, simple cool-to-the-touch operation, and remote controlled power and focus. A separate ballast unit and an adjustable yoke mounts on either a floor stand or hangs from a lighting grid for many mounting options.

“Until now, photographers and videographers often shoot under hot lights in order to get the powerful light they need, creating uncomfortable working conditions,” said Drew Strickland, vice president of Fotodiox. “LED lighting gives users a cool option that still emits powerful light and the DY-200 LED Fresnel lights provide even more control for professionals to get the exact effect wanted.”

The Fotodiox DY-200 LED Fresnel lights feature on-board controls which offer a full range of light levels, as well as control over the motorized focus to create a wide floodlight or a powerful spotlight. The light’s intensity and focus can be adjusted in one of three ways: ballast control box with an integrated LED display, a wireless remote, or by connecting it to any DMX-compatible lighting control system.

Other features include:

  • Daylight 5600 ± 300, Color Index Rating > 85

  • 9,100 – 60,000 Lux/m Luminance
