LED Engin Introduces World’s First 50 W Seven-Die LED Emitter

LED Engin Introduces World’s First 50 W Seven-Die LED Emitter LED Engin, an Osram business, has unveiled the LZ7 Plus, the world’s first 50 W seven-die LED emitter. The trend in stage lighting fixtures has evolved from not only delivering ultra-bright light with narrow beam, but also creating more sophisticated color schemes and high CRI white. LZ7 Plus is uniquely designed to address this trend, featuring seven high-power dies in six colors, which can be individually controlled to deliver intense, saturated colors, as well as high quality white light as a result of color mixing. The LZ7 Plus can be used in various stage fixtures, such as static and moving head wash fixtures, as well as profile fixtures. Read more »
