Building on the success of the original LiteMat, with its thin and ultra lightweight housing, soft color-correct Hybrid (bi-color) output, and convenient mounting options, the S2 LiteMat takes lighting to the next level. The new S2 LiteMat is nearly 40% brighter than the original LiteMat, has better color quality, and a widely extended Kelvin range all without an increase in power draw.Add to kit list
In addition, overall CRI increased to 95+ with a matching TLCI of more than 95 as well. With all of these tremendous advancements, S2 LiteMat remains compatible with all existing LiteDimmers, LitePower supplies, and cables.
The S2 LiteMat 2 is based on two “tiled” light engine measuring 9.5 in. x 19 in. (240 mm x 480 mm). The head unit features 576 genuine CineMitter LEDs and is covered by a thin, clear polycarbonate layer and bordered entirely with Velcro® “loop” fastener.
Mounting is provided with a Kino Flo® compatible, removable gimbal mount. The “soft-through-pixelization” method allows the LiteMat 2 to achieve surprisingly bright light levels while remaining under 1 in. (25 mm) thick and weighing just 3.5 lb (1.6 kg).
The S2 LiteMat 2 can be used anytime that soft and controllable light is required. As a key light, you can easily mount the unit on a “Baby” stand or attach it to an elevator wall with adhesive Velcro®.
Because it’s lightweight, LiteMat makes a great handheld fill light or can easily be mounted overhead.
