Mole-Richardson, a manufacturer known for high-quality lighting fixtures, have expanded their line of LED fresnel with the new Mole-Richardson Variable Color Fresnel LEDs. They build upon the company’s first foray into the LED fresnel market, which were only available either in tungsten or daylight colour temperatures, but had a very high wattage of up to 1600W for the Mole-Richardson Tener LED.

Mole’s new variable color fresnel LED series comes in 200W, 300W and 400W versions.

The 92+ CRI series features the distinctive Mole painting scheme and they have an equivalent to tungsten output up to roughly 2K, with the 400W Vari-Studio Junior. The 200W Vari-Baby has an equivalent output to a 1K Tungsten fixture, with the 300W landing somewhere in the middle.

All three products feature a touchscreen panel in the rear of the fixture to control light intensity and colour temperature, ranging from 2700K all the way to 6500K. The Mole-Richardson Variable Color Fresnel LEDs feature an additional control for Minus Green, allowing you to fine tune that characteristic spike of LEDs in the colour spectrum. The units also feature a USB port to carry out firmware updates, a practice that has become more and more commonplace for lights, as seen for example also in the recent firmware update for the ARRI Skypanels.

The Mole-Richardson Variable Color Fresnel LEDs will be available from September for the following prices.

  • Baby 1K: $2,995
  • 8-Inch Studio: $3,995
  • Studio Junior 2K: $4,495

LED fresnels can be much more efficient alternatives to their tungsten counterparts, offering similar power output but with a much lower power draw. This means that you don’t need to run them off a generator, and they generate much less heat, making them easier to handle.
