Litepanels Introduced Sola ENG Flight Kit at NAB 2012
“Our new Sola ENG Flight Kit is ideal for news and other professional videographers who are on the road,” said Chris Marchitelli, Litepanels VP of Global Marketing. “The Sola ENG fixtures can be quickly deployed for reporter stand-ups, interviews, or lighting a small area.”
The Sola ENG Flight Kit consists of three Litepanels Sola ENG Fresnel fixtures and accessories including stands, gels, power supplies and cables, barndoors, soft box, a custom rolling case and more. Battery or A/C powered, the Sola ENG is designed for on-camera and portable use. Each fixture offers focusable output comparable to a 125W HMI yet requires only 30W to power it. These versatile lights are designed for easy travel, quick set-up and operation.
At just 30 pounds (13.60 kg), the new Litepanels Sola ENG Flight Kit can be carried on board commercial planes and stows neatly in overhead bins. The compact, yet powerful fixtures offer a fully dimmable and focusable daylight balanced source, that’s ideal for working on the fly. Shooters on the go will appreciate the retractable extension handle and smooth-rolling polyurethane wheels on the custom Pelican case.
