PrimeTime Lighting Systems announces GUS 51 LED fresnel

PrimeTime is introducing new features to its LED Fresnels.

The new GUS 51 LED Fresnel was built from the ground up with innovative engineering for broadcast and production studios, says a release issued by the company.

Glen Harn, PrimeTime’s CEO explained in the statement, “At 58 watts, we’re as bright, or brighter than many of our competitor’s LED Fresnels that draw 95, 110 or even 150 watts. What makes us so much more efficient is better engineering, better design and better materials. We didn’t just push an LED cluster into incandescent optics and technology; we started from scratch to re-invent the Fresnel as an LED instrument. As far as build quality, where other LED manufacturers use stamped steel; PrimeTime uses extruded aluminum. Where others use plastic or fiberglass molded parts; we use machined aluminum.”

Other features of the GUS 51 LED Fresnel:

  • No Fan: PrimeTime’s proprietary Therma-draw heat dispersion technology generates a bright light that is dead quiet
  • Smooth focusing transport: PrimeTime’s exclusive Steady Glide
  • High quality Micro-Fresnel lens system: advanced optics result in a single shadow soft wash of light
  • 100% machined, extruded and formed aluminum construction
  • Diodes are under-driven in all PrimeTime LED products to extend diode life and color balance
  • CRI over 90 results in accurate color rendition, even with ultra high-def TV production
  • Lamp life rated at 50K+ hours
  • Equipped with DMX, 10v, and on-board dial for versatile dimming
  • Available in either 3,000 or 5,000 kelvin color temperature
  • Manufactured in the U.S. with PrimeTime’s unmatched build-quality with lasting durability and rigorous engineering standards

The GUS 51 LED Fresnel produces a perfectly even wash of light from side-to-side and is adjustable from a tight 11-degree beam angle at full spot to a wide 80-degree field angle at full flood. According to the release Hern says “our advanced optics with high quality Micro-Fresnel lens systems result in the most even wash of light you’re likely to find in any LED fresnel, with less than 2.8% decrease in brightness from center to outer edge.”
