Elgato, which calls itself a leading provider of hardware and software for content creators, today announced the Elgato Ring Light LED panel. The ring-shaped panel is said to provide high-quality illumination without glare or shadows, creating a “professional-grade home studio”.
The outer diameter of the ring with the double-layer diffuser is 43.2 cm, the inner diameter is 31 cm. The brightness and light temperature of OSRAM LEDs with CRI> 94% are adjustable. The maximum luminous flux is 2500 lm, and the step is 1%. The range of color temperature selection is limited to values of 2900 and 7000 K. For control, a wireless connection via Wi-Fi 802.11 a / b / g / n is used. The companion app is available for iOS, Android, macOS, and Windows. In addition, Ring Light can be operated manually: two buttons allow you to adjust the brightness and color temperature.
