Designed to render the most accurate color possible, the Area 48 Soft LED Fixture for Remote Phosphor Panels from BB&S is a unique LED light source 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 exhibited by the Area 48's as well as a very high TLCI rating of 98 for all but the chroma panels. This version of the light ships with a chroma blue panel but there are also optional 2700K, 3200K, 4300K, 5600K, and 6500K panels as well as chroma green. The Area 48 also has a strobing mode for visual effects.

BB&S Lighting Area 48 Overview

Designed to render the most accurate color possible, the Area 48 Soft LED Fixture for Remote Phosphor Panels from BB&S is a unique LED light source 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 exhibited by the Area 48's as well as a very high TLCI rating of 98 for all but the chroma panels. This version of the light ships with a chroma blue panel but there are also optional 2700K, 3200K, 4300K, 5600K, and 6500K panels as well as chroma green. The Area 48 also has a strobing mode for visual effects.

Built with the professional user in mind, the Area 48 is dimmable from 3-100% locally on the fixture, or remotely via 16-bit, 4-channel DMX. The light has a low-heat output that's equivalent to a 1200W tungsten flood light while consuming only 122W 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.

    I read a user review on B&H for the Area 48 ...

    I read a user review on B&H for the Area 48 fixture w/ 5600K panel (now discontinued on B&H) the user provided some info that greatly concerned me - I'm about to jump on a Area 48 with the 3200K panel but the reviewer claimed that the LEDs diodes are held in place with cardboard. How can that be true? I know this light doesn't produce an exceptional amount of heat but there must be enough to require materials that aren't as flammable as cardboard to be integrated into the design. I'm posting this question on here since this is the one I'm actually considering. One other question - other than the phosphor panels being different, are there any other differences between this item and the one that is now discontinued through B&H? Has anyone else experienced pretty seriously noticeable flaws with BB&S products or have issues with the make & finish of the product?
