FLUOTEC, maker of sustainable and cost-effective lighting solutions for the industry, will showcase two of its systems at NAB 2017, the VegaLux 300 BI StudioLED Fresnel and StarMaker IP65 ProductionLED Panel.
The VegaLux 300 BI StudioLED Fresnel uses DMX control of brightness and color temperature, allowing DPs to adjust lighting quickly and efficiently for more creative choices. With 300W of pure white light, the unit’s motorized focus mechanism lets the light change from a 15o spot to a 50o flood.
The StarMaker IP65 ProductionLED Panel features a tunable pure neutral white light, with a certified IP65 ingress protection rating. That means it can be used in full sand or dust storms, as well as full rainstorms from all angles, an ideal choice for news crews working in all types of weather, including during live TV.

Technological advances from HD to 2k to 4K represent huge capital investments that require payments for years to come, but there are thousands of television studios still using outdated lighting technologies, costing millions of dollars in unnecessary monthly expenses.
The FLUOTEC StudioLED FRESNEL VEGALUX 300™ LED technology is digital, utilizing DMX to control the brightness level, color temperature and has a MOTORIZED focus mechanism that adjusts the light from a 15o spot to a 50o flood. These parameters are easily changed with the on-board control panel or a remote DMX console saving both time and money.
The VEGALUX 300™ emits the pure white light needed to render colors properly and make your talent look great. Substituting your inefficient fixtures right away saves thousands of dollars in energy costs. Up to five (5) 300W 2.81A VEGALUX 300™, Fresnels can be powered to a single 20A, 120VAC household outlet compared to just one 2,000W inefficient incandescent fixture
Lighting designers, DPs & producers can adjust the color temperature of the light to best fit the needs of a camera’s sensor or to make creative choices like design a morning TV production with a cool white DAYLIGHT 5600K tone. At mid-day, they can choose to have a NEUTRAL WHITE tone of 4,115K and for the evening they might achieve the WARM WHITE color temperatures of 3200K all without using gels or even touching the fixture since CCT changes may be controlled through a remote DMX dimming console
The VEGALUX 300™ includes a sturdy built 8-Leaf Barn doors for precise and accurate control of the light beam.
It is a nearly silent fixture with an optimized passive-active cooling system with quiet fans for studio or location applications.
This efficient innovative and ground breaking Fresnel lighting fixture will save between 75-80% of the cost of your electric bill and, because LED is a cool digital light, you will save costs by dramatically reducing the need of air conditioning for your studio.
The VEGALUX 300 is Manufactured by FLUOTEC´s award winning BEST of NAB world class industry standards, it is a highly professional, simple to use fixture, that can be integrated into your current production’s workflow.
