Professional lighting and camera solutions for broadcast and film

Kentucky Grip & Lighting really loves our new Aadyntech ECO Punch Plus and so do our clients!.

The AAdynTech Punch Plus is the most powerful daylight-balanced white light professional LED fixture available today. The fixture delivers an incredible output of 4,044 fc @ 10 feet, comparable to a 2,500 watt HMI, while consuming less than 5 amps of power. The Punch Plus is self-contained with a universal power supply and, unlike traditional HMI’s, the need for heavy and expensive head cables, ballasts or spare lamps is eliminated, dramatically reducing transport weight. Crew and talent safety is always a concern and the Punch Plus generates so little heat and can be held with bare hands, and harmful UV or IR emissions are virtually eliminated. Instant ‘ON’ ensures no warm-up wait time on set.

Optical efficiency allows for a single light source eliminating multiple shadows. Quick change lenses are included to adjust the beam angle for very narrow, narrow, medium or flood while maintaining a flat even field. The UIM Digital Remote provides precise control over dimming with user selectable variable dimming curves, a smart lamp hour counter, multiple memory recordings and a host of other features including strobe and lighting effects. A heavy-duty yoke is provided.
