The LitePad HO+ from Rosco is a slim profile, edge-lit LED light source. At only 1/3" (a third of an inch) thick, LitePad HO+ is able to fit in places where conventional light sources will not. LitePad HO+ produces a soft quality of light that is easy on the eyes and runs at cool temperatures. Available in eight standard sizes, LitePad HO+ has LEDs on all four sides of the perimeter for maximum brightness. An interior connector provides a solid power connection directly on the LitePad itself. Available in both daylight and tungsten colour temperatures, LitePad HO+ can fit a wide variety of applications.
The Key Features
LitePad is only one third of an inch (8mm) thick, making it one of the thinest light fixtures in the world. Its slim profile allows the LitePad to be placed and even hidden in places conventional light fixture could not fit. No thicker than a pad of paper, LitePads can easily fit into a back pack or messenger bag for easy transportation.
Soft Quality of Light
One of LitePad's most important attributes is the quality of light it produces. LitePad outputs a soft, even beam of light perfect for filling in shadows, creating "beauty" light, or to mimic a practical light in the scene. LitePad has been hailed as the perfect "get me out of trouble" light because little needs to be done when using LitePad in order to make it produce beautiful light.
Because LitePad is an LED light source, the amount of heat generated is very low. In the center of the LitePad, the unit is cool to the touch. The edges, where the LED are located, is only slightly warm. This means that LitePads can be left on all day in a small set without making the room unbearable to work in.
Weighing significantly less than a convention light source, LitePads are capable of being mounted in many different ways and places. Whether it be Rosco's mounting brackets, Velcro, or even rubber bands, LitePad's low weight makes it incredibly easy to mount and makes carrying a few of them around a breeze.
Minimal Power Consumption
With each LED only consuming a quarter of a watt, LitePad is an extremely energy efficient light source. There is no longer the need for kilowatts of power or a generator to power a set full of lights. A few dozen LitePads can easily run off of available household power.
Easy on the Eyes
Unlike many LED sources, LitePad is a bounced LED light - not an array of LEDs pointing directly forward. Performers or technicians can look directly into LitePad without squinting, hurting their eyes or getting a headache.
LitePad HO+ offers the brightest LitePad to date. With LEDs on all four edges of all of our standard sizes, LitePad HO+ gives you the maximum output in the smallest of spaces.
LitePads are a fully dimmable LED product. Our proprietary Single Fader Dimmer and 2 CH/DMX Dimmer can smoothly dim any standard size LitePad with no color temperature change. With LitePad's dimmers, you are able to set the exact light intensity you need.
LitePads new interior connector eliminates the traditional wire, which had the potential to be pulled out during use. This feature was introduced, based on user feedback of previous versions of LitePad. It makes the product more rugged and easier to use.
Back to top
LitePad is available in two color temperatures, daylight (approx. 5800K) and tungsten (approx. 3600K). With tungsten and daylight LitePads, which have equal light output, there is no need to color correct your LitePad, losing valuable light intensity. LitePad's minimum green content allows for high color rendering and great film and digital photography.
