On this video the guys from nofilmschool have a quick talk with Alan Ipakchian from Litepanels who introduce a new soft light called Astra 1×1 Soft Bi-Color.
There are so many new soft LEDs coming into the market (and many of them had a spot in the recent NAB 2016 which is where this video was shot as well).. The Litepanels Astra 1×1 Soft Bi-Color LED is special because it isn’t just a very soft and powerful 1 by 1 LED but it also comes with optional modules including a BT module for remote controlling the light (a function that we are seeing more and more in the lighting industry these days), 2 types of DMX modules (either RJ45 or the 5-pin).
