ETC D40 Studio Overview

The white D40 Studio Tungsten LED Fixture with TwistLock Connector from ETC uses efficient white LEDs to create high volumes of tungsten-balanced light with far less energy than a traditional halogen or tungsten light would use. This luminaire produces brilliant white light that naturally illuminates the talent - on screen or on stage via its 40 Luxeon Rebel ES LED emitters. The 3,000K light from this luminaire mimics tungsten fixtures, while using a mere 110W of power. It is suitable for indoor broadcast, theater, architectural uses, and for use in houses of worship - where color temperature and skin-tone rendering are critical.

The D40 Studio Tungsten 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.
