At NAB 2022, Aputure announced new video production LED lighting products. Aputure announced the LS 600c Pro full-color lamp, the MT Pro tube light and the MC Pro. Each new product offers full RGB lighting options, perfect for a wide range of video applications.

Starting with the Aputure LS 600c Pro, it’s the latest model in the Light Storm (LS) 600 series, Aputure’s second-most powerful point-source LED lights. Aputure’s previous two LS 600 models came in daylight (5600K) and bi-color (2700K-6500K) flavors. The new LS 600c Pro delivers full-color output thanks to an RGBWW LED chipset. The 600W light has an industry-standard Bowens mount, making it compatible with a wide range of accessories and light modifiers, including the LS 600 series hyper reflector that ships with the new LS600c Pro. This lets you concentrate the light for 4,150 lux output at 3 meters.

Aputure says that its new light can achieve SSI (daylight 5600K) of 74 and SSI (Tungsten) of 85. SSI stands for Spectral Similarity Index, and it’s a standard for measuring the spectral accuracy of lights. The RGB light can reproduce more than 90% of the colors within the Rec.2020 color space. The light has 10 user-programmable presets and includes multiple ways to control color, including XY, RGB, source and gel presets and advanced HSL with white point adjustments.

The Aputure LS 600c Pro will begin shipping later this year for $2,490.
