The new LiteMat+ Plus series of LED Light Fixtures is the ideal luminaire for set lighting and rental company inventories. LiteMat+ Plus incorporates everything you love about LiteMat, features the new CineMitter, and adds some distinctly new features. The most notable change is the PL7 locking connection system, which happens to be the same for every size of LiteMat+ Plus, and the new LiteDimmer+ Plus series of dimmmers with built-in camera battery mounts. This fixture features four (vertically) “tiled” 9.5″ x 19″ LED light engines covered by a thin, clear polycarbonate layer bordered by Velcro.
By providing evenly spaced, Color-Correct LEDs spread out over a large area, LiteMat+ Plus creates soft light without requiring diffusion. This “soft-through-pixelization” method allows the unit to achieve surprisingly bright light levels while remaining under 1″ (23mm) thick and weighing just 6.2 lb (2.81 kg).
The new CineMitter series of applied-phosphor LEDs set the standard for cinematic, color-correct LED lighting. Efficient and full-spectrum, these LED chips offer state-of-the-art output with a 40% increase in brightness over VHO Pro. Another distinct feature of the CineMitter is the extended Kelvin range. LiteGear pushed the the lower CCT to 2600 degrees Kelvin (K) allowing for candlelight or deep-tungsten output while increasing the CRI to a staggering 95+- that’s nearly indistinguishable from traditional incandescent sources! On the cool side, the CCT was pushed up to 6200k to better balance for overcast sky or cool white fluorescents. This increase in CCT still achieves a CRI of 95+ and provides beautiful, full-spectrum daylight.
LiteMat walks the line between a complete, ready-to-shoot system and a DIY light source. With its set of predefined accessories, it can serve the needs of DPs, gaffers, and lighting technicians looking for a more turn-key setup. Conversely, the LiteMat head unit, with its Kino Flo-compatible mounting system, offers great flexibility with its lightweight and modular design and high light output, allowing the LiteMat to serve as the heart of your next great idea. You can easily make your own accessories or simple soft boxes, customized light banks, or even your own Chinese lantern.
LiteDimmer+ Plus incorporates legendary LiteDimmer cinema-grade electronics into a singular housing combined with the AC or DC power supply. These hybrid dimmers are available in manual and DMX versions with wattages starting at 100W through 400W, and feature the new locking PL7 connector. Some of the LiteDimmer+ Plus units feature CurrrentSense technology which regulates the output current regardless of how many LiteMats and LiteTiles are plugged in.
The LiteDimmer+ Plus DC200 is the ideal portable companion for powering +Series fixtures. With a focus on DC input power, the 200W unit can be powered using typical Gold Mount compatible batteries. Optionally, an external AC powered, 12V power supply can be used and attached to the battery mount with the optional power supply mounting plate. The LiteDimmer+ Plus’ rugged housing includes several different mounting options including four 1/4″-20 threads for attaching clamps or brackets.
