Cool-Lux CL1000 Broadcast Quality Pro LED Softlight

For the past 10 years this LED soft-light, made by our sister company Cool-Lux, has been the light of choice for almost every major television studio in the country.  Now, our remaining inventory is available to you at CLEARANCE PRICING, as much as 50% off list.

You’ve spent a lot of money and your camera is finally there, but are your lights up to NAB broadcast quality?  Smith-Victor is proud to offer the Cool-Lux CL1000 PRO Studio LED Panel Series, designed for professional video, broadcast and still applications. Featuring a high CRI >95, the CL1000 provides for precise color rendering and pleasing flesh tones.  Only your eyes can render light more accurately.  Cool-Lux PRO Studio LED Panel lights offer extremely high light output. Light intensity can be adjusted without color shifting from 100-0%.  So show up to your next shoot with the same pro soft-lights as your local TV station.

And there’s no longer a need for a $1000 pro Sony V-Mount, or Anton Bauer G-Mount battery and charger.  We’ve developed a V-Mount to NP adapter so you can use the affordable NP batteries that you probably already own, and it has a second D-tap*!  Of course if/when you want the features of the serious pro, the V-Mount and G-Mount batteries fit natively.  Batteries aside, this light comes with an AC (pro xlr) power cord.

Cool-Lux is a sister-company of Smith-Victor, both owned and operated by PromarkBRANDS.

*The Sony V batteries will run this light for about 8 hours on a single charge.  The 2 Sony NP adapter with f970 batteries will run for 4 hours.
