FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE                                                       

(NAB 2013) Hexolux will unveil the Xum7, their revolutionary LED Fresnel at NAB 2013. The unique and sporty design of the Xum7 is based on hexagons to function as a modular system packing more light into a seamless configuration.  It can be connected together in teams so you can transform a small source into a large, bright source. This gives you a faster lighting system with less to load in, and more to work with. This buys more time to craft the image and allows you to shoot more in a day.

The Hexolux Xum7 is the most efficient LED Fresnel light in watts per lumen. Its super lightweight at only 5 lbs, DMX remote control and optional wireless DMX. Introducing f-stop dimming, absolutely flicker-free, silent hybrid cooling, and the highest CRI in the LED industry.

The new Hexolux CineWhite™ LED solves the color-rendering dilemmas most cinematographers associate with LEDs. It produces pure white on film and digital cameras and matches existing tungsten sources. You will get no surprises with its 98 CRI: gels look just right, everything looks just right.

The Hexolux Xum7 is the ultimate studio and field lighting instrument, boasting the highest ROI in the industry. It is designed to be the most efficient, most flexible, full spectrum, lightest weight, and coolest running light instrument ever created. It out performs other LEDs costing much more. Hexolux lights dramatically lower energy consumption.  Studio utility bills are drastically reduced which is both a cost savings and environmentally beneficial.

Everything in the portable 3 light kit, sets up much faster and lighter than anything you have used before.  The hexagon softbox is ultra lightweight, instant set up with SpeedSwap™ mounting, and has an inner removable diffuser panel for additional contrast control. The 7 foot umbrella can be used with one light, two, or a team of three for a big, soft, color mixing light with fantastic throw.

Their sustainable manufacturing process uses only high quality, longer-lasting components, and technology to make the lights even more efficient to minimize their environmental impact.

You can visit HEXOLUX at NAB 2013, Booth C11249.
