The JAB Daylight

The JAB Daylight LED fixture in AAdynTech’s JAB Series lineup is one of the most sought after lighting fixtures on  the market for good reason. Whether for Broadcast ENG remote field production, fixed studio installation, live sports  coverage, video shoots or film, the JAB Daylight provides a wealth of practical benefits and features ideally suited  to a wide range of lighting applications. Weighing in at only 19 lbs., its small compact footprint allows for an ease  of transport for on-the-go lighting assignments. An unmatched output of better than 2,500 foot-candles at 10 ft. combined with a maximum current draw of a mere 1.77 amps at full brightness means savings up to 90% A/C energy usage. If that weren’t enough; the fixture can be operated on 28.8v DC battery power for instances where conventional A/C supply is problematic or non-existent.

Unlike HMI fixtures, the JAB Daylight generates no heat and no harmful UV or IR emissions – an important safety consideration for both talent and crew. The fixture is self-contained with an auto-ranging universal power supply requiring no heavy, expensive ballast, head cables or replacement lamps. As with all AAdynTech fixtures; instant ‘ON’ ensures no warm-up wait time on set – ever. Optical efficiency provides a single light source effectively eliminating multiple shadows. The Daylight comes equipped with four quick change hard gel lenses to vary the beam angle; very narrow, narrow, medium or flood while maintaining a flat, even field.

To extend the flexibility of the fixture various CTO and Minus Green optional filters are available, enabling the 5600°K Daylight to operate as a Tungsten fixture. There are several control possibilities; built in User InterfaceModule (UIM), DMX with DMX loop-thru, or the optional corded User InterfaceController. A heavy-duty yoke is standard. Accessory options include; barn doors, ATA Mil-spec road cases, speed rings, light banks and more. The JAB Daylight is available standalone, or as several full Kit versions coupled with varying accessories and housed in a rugged waterproof molded rolling case. The remarkable versatility of the AAdynTech JAB Daylight truly puts it into a class of its own.
