The ARRI L7-D Daylight LED Fresnel (Pole Operated) is part of is at the vanguard of a new generation of lighting equipment that can be seamlessly integrated into the studio or onto the set without sacrificing features or performance.
The key characteristic of any Fresnel is flood to spot capability and the L7-D meets and exceeds expectations with an impressive beam angle of 15-50°. There's simply no learning curve or accommodation to be made when swapping out L7s fixture for fixture with standard Fresnels. In fact, you're not going to be moving them around or juggling scrims in high places thanks to the 100 - 0% dimming capability.
For broadcast studios, remote fixture control is of paramount importance, and all functions of the L7 are controllable through DMX. You can regulate intensity, color temperature and plus/minus green, which can be switched to manipulate hue and saturation, directly from your control console. The L7 is also fully RDM compatible, providing bi-directional feedback. The L7-D delivers the same 5600K color rendition as full spectrum daylight sources with great accuracy even when dimmed. And the L7-D will be seen but not heard thanks to its dead quiet passive cooling system. While inclement weather might annoy the talent it won't kill your light since L7-D has an IP54 rating making it impervious to falling rain and splashing water.
The L7-D LED source produces 1,000W of light while drawing only 220W for a savings of a whopping 75% over similar output tungsten lights. And low heat means lower AC bills in the studio. You can actually run 9 L7s off of a 20A, 110V outlet as opposed to two 1,000W or three 650W standard fixtures. When it comes to performance and features, the L7-D might just be the perfect light source.
