Highlight LED

The Photon Beard Highlight LED range takes the best available remote phosphor technology and combines it with a unique optical approach to give a punchy, full spectrum LED Luminaire with excellent CRI and TLCI in 3200K and 5600K variants. The colour temperature can be easily changed by swapping the snap in phosphor panels.

The Highlight XT
The XT range is the latest addition to the family, acting as an extension of the classic Highlight. The XT allows you to light a subject perfectly from their first appearance on camera, not just when they reach their marker. This makes it ideal for more modern and dynamic presenting styles.

The modular design also allows you unique control via DMX so you can light side by side subjects with different levels if required. As with all Highlight units you can add diffusion and intensifiers or honeycombs if you need to.

It holds all the same outstanding features of the standard Highlight LED and simplifies the process of lighting a wide and open plan space.

Dimming options include local control only and DMX, which also offers a manual fader and channel display. Highlight LED can be supplied with either manual or pole operated yokes.

A wide selection of accessories are available for the Highlight LED range and include honeycombs, intensifiers, diffusers, and a unique cyclorama hood with asymmetrical optics that can light a 6m high green screen evenly from the top only.

Cooling is entirely passive, so the lights are completely silent with no moving parts.  Reliability is exceptionally high and all models carry a five year warranty including output level and colour quality.
