LEDGO Softlights are high-powered LED fixtures that produce a soft flood of even, wraparound light. Advanced features such as DMX and WiFi control complement the standard 95 CRI, consistent color throughout the power range, and flicker-free light quality found in all LEDGO lights.
The LGT1440MC is the smaller of the two softlight panels. It has a light face measuring 12”x27” and produces 11628 Lumens. This is the equivalent light output of a 500+W tungsten lamp while only drawing 144w of power, and producing very little heat.
Passive Air-Cooled Design
Despite their low power draw, high-intensity LED’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 radiator-style grills 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.
Soft, Even Light
Traditional LED’s create hotspots on your talent and can be painful to look at at short distances. The LEDGO Softlights utilize specialized LED’s in order to create a soft, even flood of light on your subject that isn’t hard on their eyes. This style of light creates smooth skin tones and gradual fall-off when used at close distances
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.
Variable Color Temperature and Brightness
The ability to change the brightness and color temperature of the LEDGO Softlights allows you to seamlessly blend your light with the ambient light, eliminating the need for additional diffusion or color correction gels.
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 Softlights are DMX compatible 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 and color temperature of their lights remotely.
Every LEDGO Softlight 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.
LEDGO Softlights 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.
