BB&S Lighting Area 48 overview

  • 1Description

This white Area 48 Soft 3200K LED Fixture with Remote Phosphor Technology from BBS is a unique LED panel that separates the phosphor, which is normally integrated into the LED, from the Area 48's array. Instead, a phosphor panel with the desired color temperature is inserted into the light's accessory channel. The benefit is a higher degree of color accuracy than that of phosphor incorporated lights as well as a very high CRI. This version of the light ships with a 3200K panel with an impressive CRI of 97, but the panel is interchangeable with optional 2700K, 4300K, 5600K and 6500K panels. There are also chroma green and chroma blue panels available. The Area 48 also has a strobing mode for visual effects.

Built with the professional user in mind, the Area 48 is console-controllable via DMX with 0-100% 8 or 16-bit dimming, locally or remotely. The light has a low-heat output that's equivalent to a 1,200W tungsten flood light while consuming only 150W which translates to low operating costs and a fast return on investment. The included 100-240 VAC power supply allows worldwide use , but optional V-Mount and Gold Mount battery plates offer independence from mains power - an essential feature for the location shooter.

    BB&S Lighting Area 48 reviews

    Area 48 LED Soft Fixture with Interchangeable Phosphor Technology (White, 3200K) is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Beautiful light. SO SO fit and finish. After much research I finally bought the Area 48 LED Fixture. The light quality and output are impressive and beautiful. What I am less than pleased is the manufacturing. First, the light's diode surface is made of CARDBOARD!!! Unbelievable!!!! This is VERY expensive light. The use of cardboard is inexcusable. Second, the barn doors are basically held in place WITH A RUBBER BAND! Really????? yes, a RUBBER BAND. It WILL fall off at the worst time: DURING A SHOOT in front of clients. And lastly, the barn door frame is very roughly finished and will require me filing it down so as not to get injured. I will probably keep the light due to the soft Rembrandt quality. However i am VERY disappointed with these issues. If this were a cheap Chinese product priced accordingly I would accept its poor workmanship and manufacturing. But at this price, it is very disappointing.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great lights This review listed in here by the other person who claims the light has issues, was clearly neglecting the light badly and had no idea how to use it. These are tough, well made lights, as well as having an excellent CRI.
