Videssence Vidnel VN050 LED Fresnel
Videssence is a lighting company that has spent its early years developing the first fluorescent light for television and followed that with the development of LED lights. Their goal has been to make energy efficient lighting for both the field and studio. Videssence has recently introduced their line of LED Fresnel lights, which fall in line with that mission. Their flagship LED Fresnel is the Vidnel 050 LED, a 50 watt LED light with a Fresnel lens on it.
The Vidnel 050’s marriage of a Fresnel fixtures with a LED light allows Directors of Photography the ability to focus light while using a fraction of the power consumption. The light is a standard 3200K light, but is also avialble In a 5600K daylight option as well. The Vidnel 050 also touts a 96+ CRI, which means that Camera Operators will get accurate color replication for the most natural looking skin tone. It has flicker free dimming, which means when you dim there won’t be any color shift in the light as well. The light comes with optional barn doors and 4” gel holder. The light works great in a small environment, like that small conference room you have been put in for that corporate interview, because it has an internal thermal cooling system that doesn’t require any fans and allows for maximum LED output. It has a rear control that will work with a programmable DMX control unit.
The Videssence Vidnel 050 LED Fresnel is an excellent light for video crews in Chicago or any film location for that matter, looking for energy efficiency with tungsten Fresnel capabilities. Videssence Vidnel 050 LED Fresnel will work in both a studio and field environment that more closely resembles its tungsten predecessors.
