Litepanels Announces 48-Hour Astra E Flash Sale

Chatsworth, California (November 4, 2016) - Litepanels, a premier provider of LED lighting for the broadcast, film, and production industries and a Vitec Group brand, is excited to announce an unprecedented pre-holiday sale for the celebrated Astra E Daylight LED panels. For just 48 hours, customers in North America will receive a 30% discount on Litepanels Astra E Daylight LED panels beginning November 9th and ending November 10th, or while supplies last.

“To help jumpstart their holiday shopping, we’re giving our customers a chance to stock up on quality LED lights at a great price point. For years, the Astra family has continued to be a game-changer in the professional lighting industry and we’re happy to be able to offer this fantastic 48-hour deal on our Astra E panels,” stated Alan Ipakchian, Product Marketing Manager for Litepanels.

The Astra 1x1 E Daylight LED panel features a one square foot form factor with updated, high CRI, surface mount LEDs and custom-designed TIR optics. The Astra E Daylight has a comparative output to the original 1x1 that revolutionized the lighting industry and now provides an even fuller color spectrum. Along with high color rendition, the panel’s tightly binned LEDs provide higher intensity, resulting in a longer throw and a more effective beam spread. With ultra-smooth dimming from 100% to 0, the panel is flicker-free at any frame rate or shutter angle.

The Astra 1x1 E Daylight employs completely silent passive cooling for efficient thermal management. It’s easily identifiable manual controls and modular design allow lighting professionals to build the light up to meet their requirements with optional yoke-mounted Gold-mount or V-mount battery plates. A truly mobile lighting solution, the Astra E offers optional communications modules that can control brightness and temperature via standard DMX512 protocol or via Bluetooth using the SmartLite app through your handheld Apple device.

Orders will be taken starting at 9 am Eastern Standard Time (EST) on November 9th and ending at 5 pm Pacific Standard Time (PST) on November 10th or WHILE SUPPLIES LAST* through authorized Litepanels dealers.
