Litepanels, a Vitec Group brand and premier provider of LED lighting for the broadcast and production industries, has announced the release of its new Sola 4 Traveler Kit. Designed specifically to accommodate the needs of shooters and productions on the go, the Sola 4 Traveler Kit includes three Sola 4 LED Fresnel fixtures in a rugged, ergonomically designed, trolley-style hard case.
Customized for safe and easy transport from location to location, the Sola 4 Traveler Kit weighs only 65 pounds (29.5 kilograms). The three fixtures included in the kit can be easily deployed for a traditional 3-light set-up, and the kit’s custom foam insert is expandable to allow for the addition of a classic Litepanels 1×1.
Litepanels’ Sola 4 is the smallest DMX controllable LED Fresnel on the market. The daylight-balanced LED offers the increased control and light-shaping properties inherent in a Fresnel light at a fraction of the power draw of conventional fixtures. Offering an output comparable to a 125W HMI, the Sola 4 fixtures can be powered with AC power cables or from professional camera batteries with an optional battery plate and cable.

The Sola 4 delivers the performance of a compact Fresnel fixture with all of the advantages of LED.
