The LEDGO Fresnel Series is a new take on focusable Fresnel lighting. From portrait photographers to YouTube sensations or even major Hollywood productions, this line of innovative lights is sure to be a welcome addition to any lighting kit. All LEDGO Fresnel lights utilize passive air-cooling technology rather than traditional fans. This ingenious idea means no moving parts, leading to truly silent operation on set.
The LGD1200M Fresnel utilizes a 120W COB LED to produce the equivalent light output of a 500w tungsten lamp. This mid-range, compact Fresnel is the most diverse light in the series,providing enough light for a wide range of applications, while still being compact enough for most run-and-gun scenarios.
Passive Air-Cooled Design
Despite their low power draw, LED Fresnel’s can still produce a fair amount of heat. Traditionally, manufacturers have used internal fans to cool the lights. This creates additional power draw and unwanted noise when shooting on a quiet set. LEDGO has solved this problem. LEDGO’s innovative Passive Air-Cooling system utilizes channels on all sides of the body of the light, along with the natural laws of convection to cool the light, rather than traditional fans.
The constant motion of exhausting out hot air and drawing in cool air keeps the lights cool without any moving parts. Keeping the light cool results in consistent brightness and color, and doing so without any moving parts results in a completely silent operation, while negating the possibility of a fan failure.
Variable Beam Angle
Another ingeniously simple trait of the LEDGO Fresnel series is the way in which the beam angle is adjusted. Using an internal rail system to extend out and retract the front lens, users are able to manually adjust the beam angle. All lights in the LEDGO Fresnel series can zoom in to form a tight 10˚ spot, or zoom out for a wide 45˚ flood. A durable bellows system, similar to those used in vintage large-format cameras, allows the lens to move back and forth, while eliminating any worry of light leak.
All LEDGO products have a minimum 95 CRI with negligible ∆UV (green/magenta) color shift, meaning accurate, vibrant colors and less time spent in post-production.
Low-cost LED’s will sometimes flicker when used at low power. All LEDGO lights are flicker tested to over 40,000 framers per second. This allows cinematographers to use HD, 4K, 8K, or slow-motion cameras when using these lights.
Having the ability to control your lights remotely is crucial for large studio settings. LEDGO Fresnel’s are DMX compatible (excluding LGD600) and will integrate seamlessly with existing studio setups.
Integrated WiFi Receiver
In addition to manual adjustments, the brightness of these lights can also be adjusted via smartphone or tablet (Apple or Android). An integrated WiFi receiver works in conjunction with the LEDGO WiFi router (sold separately) and the LEDGO app (available for free download on Apple App Store or Google Play), giving users the ability to control the brightness of their lights remotely. This is especially convenient when lights need to be placed out of reach.
Every LEDGO Fresnel includes a set of removable 4-leaf barndoors. This valuable accessory allows users to shape the light by reducing the spread. Each individual leaf can be tightened, should they become loose over prolonged use.
Low Power Consumption
Low-draw LED’s and replacing the fan with innovative passive air-cooling technology helps to keep the power draw low. This leads to lower energy bills, plus makes location-shooting easier. Gone are the days of hauling around loud, heavy, expensive generators. LEDGO Fresnel’s are optimized for use with Sony V-Lock Batteries.
LEDGO Fresnel’s are designed to perform under the most demanding conditions. Housings are made up of aluminum and reinforced nylon. This robust build quality ensures the lights will last for years to come.
Every LEDGO Fresnel includes a versatile positioning yoke, allowing you to adjust the pan and tilt. The LEDGO 120W LED Fresnel uses a standard 5/8” baby pin stand mount.
