Bexel is giving its lighting inventory a spark with the addition of 300 brand-new Litepanels Astra 6X LED panels. The new lights will be key components in Bexel’s ongoing support of broadcast media customers who require turnkey lighting solutions in any location at outdoor sporting venues.
“The new Astra 6X panels are not only brighter, but they offer the versatility sports broadcasters need to light the announce booth or just about any location for an on-camera shot or interview — the football sideline, the locker room, the basketball courtside, the baseball dugout, or in the pits for NASCAR,” said Lee Estroff, Bexel’s VP/Account Development. “Litepanels lights have been in our inventory for more than five years, and their quality and reliability have made them highly popular with our clients. We’re making this major investment in the Astra 6X to keep our lighting inventory on the leading edge and give our customers the brightness and flexibility they need for any venue and in all types of conditions.”
As announced at the 2017 NAB Show in Las Vegas, the next-generation Litepanels Astra 6X LED panel are 50% brighter than the first-generation Astra light and six times brighter than Litepanels’ original 1 x 1 panel. The Astra 6X draws less power than its predecessor, which allows for longer battery run time. In addition to delivering higher-quality color rendering, the panels can be powered by professional camera batteries.
Bexel’s new inventory of Astra 6X lights are set to arrive this autumn, the company notes.
