New LSF Series “Light Shaping Filters” From Elation Instantly Give Any LED Fixture A Wider Beam Angle

LSF Series Light Shaping Filters smooth out or widen the beam angle of any LED fixture. LED technology offers lighting users many advantages, such as energy efficiency, low heat, low maintenance and the ability to perform RGB color-mixing. But many LED fixtures also share something else in common - a narrow beam angle or uneven field of light, which can restrict them from being used for certain applications such as stage or wall washing.
