The Ikan Lyra and Rayden ranges of LED panel lights have been updated so that they now include DMX compatibility for remote operation.
Ikan Lyra: Now DMX capable
The Lyra DMX soft lights are claimed to have a high CRI value and when paired with a soft panel are said to produce a very soft wrapping light. the lights are also bi-colour adjustable and can be set anywhere between 5600K-3200K.
The beam angle of the Lyra lights is 110 degrees, which is quite wide for an LED panel. The Lyra line of DMX lights includes the LBX5, LBX10, LWX5, and the LWX10. The Lyra lights come with a built-in 1/2 stop soft diffusion panel. Ikan has also introduced new larger versions of the Lyra including the LBX30, LBX15, LBX20, LBX25, and the LBX40.
Ikan Rayden DMX LED light: a more controlled source
The Rayden DMX LED lighting line has high-CRI 45° LEDs, giving you a very bright light. The 50° beam angle makes it possible to light a large area with a single fixture, although the Rayden lights’ narrower beam angle makes them suitable for use when shooting interviews, where you need to control the spill. The Rayden line of DMX lights includes the RBX5, RBX10, RWX5, and the RWX10.
Both the Lyra and Rayden line of DMX lights have a 30° yoke and a baby 5/8” or junior 1 1/8” combo pin. The lights can be controlled via a large yellow knob on the back with a few simple clicks. The lights also ship with barn doors, and intensifiers are included.
