I am working with sporting events and it's my job to set the light on the commentators. A lot of times the commentators are placed in a very small area. Right now I am using two 800w red heads, but in a really small room they create a lot of heat, they are hard to fit in and they're just getting really harsh for the talents.
I think this is the ultimate situation for using LED-panels, so I suggested this to my boss, and he asked me to find some good LEDs for a good price.
I found this one: http://www.litepanels.com/hilio.php
"115W draw with output comparable to a 575W HMI output" is pretty much exactly what I need but $3,500 is a lot of money.
Please let me know if you know a good retailer for this kind of equipment or if you have any thoughts at all about using LEDs for tv production.
Keep in mind that nine out of ten shots will be with a window as background.
