ETC D40 Studio HD Overview

The Black D40 Studio HD LED Fixture with Stage Pin Connector from ETC uses the patented x7 Color System, mixing 5 colors with 2 different white LEDs to create brilliant HD white light with high color-rendering qualities. Desire Studio HD luminaire produces brilliant white light that naturally illuminates talent – on screen or on stage. It comes with 40 LED emitters.

The D40 Studio HD array blends warm-white and cool-white LEDs with a touch of x7 color to give you variable color-temperatures mixing with refined white-point control and precise color rendering. The 5 colored emitters fill in the white LED spectral gaps to give you rich white light to beautifully illuminate skin tones, sets, and clothing – in person or on camera. The Studio HD luminaire offers a range of color temperatures from 800 to 20,000 K and allows you to vary lighting tint with easy green and magenta tint-control. It is suitable for indoor broadcast, theater, or architectural uses, and for use in houses of worship – where color temperature and skin-tone rendering are critical.

The D40 Studio HD LED Fixture can be configured to operate under console control for studio systems or in stand-alone settings for location lighting when a console isn't available. The user interface enables easy configuration and specific features for video and film professionals.

All LED sources experience some lessening of light output and some color shift over time. LED output will vary with thermal conditions. Ambient temperatures and orientation affect thermal conditions. Based on the LED manufacturer's B50 l70 specification, a Selador luminaire will achieve approx. 70% of its initial output after 50,000 hours of typical usage. In individual situations, LEDs will be used for different durations and at different levels, which may eventually lead to minor alterations in color performance, necessitating slight adjustment to presets, cues or programs.
