In recent years, LED lighting equipment has become widely used to save energy. However, many special-purpose lighting still use conventional light source products, and studio light with 575 W metal-halide lamp are generally used for shooting of movies and TV programs. Studio lights, due to their purpose, need to be small size and lightweight. However, switching to LED light source with keeping same product size and brightness was challenging due to large housing. Focusing on the fact that studio lights are only used for a short time, the company commercialized the LED studio light “UNI-SOL” for shooting by optimization design of LED lifetime and brightness. With the same brightness, half the luminaire weight, four-fold light source lifetime (compared to metal-halide lamps), and no mercury, UNI-SOL is a great improvement over conventional products in both practicality and environment performance.
LED lighting equipment usually needs to be fully replaced when the light source reaches the end of life. On the other hand, UNI-SOL is designed as only LED light source replacement, is an environmentally-friendly lighting equipment with reducing waste by 90%.
