1000w-led-v2The LED 1000 from PrompterPeople uses 1000 ultra bright, 5600K LED’s and has an equivalent output of 1000 watts of incandescent light yet draws just 100 watts. The 5600K daylight balanced LEDs offer full spectrum, beautifully soft light.

LED lights offer significantly further “throw” than a comparable fluorescent light. This is because each of the 1000 LED lights has a 30 degree beam angle lens that directs light forward. This beam angle creates a beam pattern that is useful from 1 – 15 feet.

LED lights are ideal for location work because they are virtually shockproof and offer the brightest light in the smallest form factor. In addition, this new version operates on 12v DC or with the included AC adapter. This allows the LED 1000 to run for hours on inexpensive battery belts, Anton Bauer brick batteries or even from a cigarette lighter output. Their power efficient design draws just 100 watts so there is never a concern with blowing a circuit breaker. LEDs give off virtually no heat so they are ideal for use in small confined areas where hot lights would quickly heat up the room. Price £699 plus vat.


Having been working in the video business since 1988 I have amassed a great amount of knowledge of both the kit and production values over the last 30 years.
