How to Use a DMX Controller with the PiXAPRO VNIX Series LED Panels
The PIXAPRO VNIX1500S is a user-friendly 90W 5600K Daylight- Balanced LED Light Panel, suitable for both stills and video. It can be powered either by using the included AC mains adapter or powered via the built-in V-Mount battery plate (Batteries available separately, or included with battery bundle option 2) giving you the flexibility to work on location away from mains power. The VNIX1500S features 1520 bright LEDs which are dimmable thanks to the simple, turn dial and digital display. They are also Flicker-Free, enabling you to shoot at virtually any framerate, or any shutter-angle without fear of introducing flicker, with a CRI (Colour-Rendering Index) of 95 for accurate colour reproduction, and a TLCI (Television Lighting Consistency Index) of 95 for impeccable colour consistency, along with one diffuser and one CTO panel filter should you need to balance the light with tungsten lighting, making it suitable for Professional Broadcast use, as well as for Cinematography and smaller Productions.

EXCELLENT QUALITY DAYLIGHT BALANCED LED LIGHT
Only just received this and played with it briefly. Purchased after extensive research direct from Pixapro (though price through Amazon pretty much the same). Purchased for video use (I partly work in video/TV production). From my research I would say that this is easily as good as the Aputure LS1s which costs quite a bit more. This has similar build quality by the look of it - if not better, with really good barn doors that fold properly flat. The rated output is higher than the LS1. It is also remote control (comes with remote). It also takes V-lok / V-mount Sony style batteries and comes with power brick for mains use (lead is generous enough to reach the floor from 7 foot stand at least). It has no fan so is silent. The yoke/mount is very solid and when loosened a quarter turn on either side allows the whole lamp to pivot in stages up or down - feels very sturdy. CRI rating is 95 - not quite as high as the Aputure possibly but higher than all the cheap LED lights and I'm pretty certain it will be accurate enough for professional video use. You can also order a softbox separatey from Pixapro for £30 (mine is currently on order so I cannot comment on the quality of this yet). The LEDs are protected provided you leave in place the removable acrylic diffuser sheet. This ('S') model is the daylight only version (5600k) so comes with an additional orange CTO sheet to correct the light for tungsten-lit environments. All parts mentioned fit in the provided bag which is of good quality. Customer service/communication with Pixapro has so far been excellent and the light is posted out from their UK HQ - arrived within a matter of days!
I will update this review when I have had chance to use the light in a professional video environment (within the next few weeks).
NB I also considered the even more powerful 100d Mkii light that Pixapro create but does have a fan (albeit reviews suggest it is quiet) and the CRI rating is slightly lower - 94 as opposed to 95 for this model. There is a 2000 LED version of this light but I considered the 1500 version to be the sweet spot between price, size and power.
I hope this helps people as I have found researching and choosing among the myriad LED light options to be a bit of a nightmare!

The Best LED Panel for Video Production
Pixapro have some of the best lighting products around in my opinion.
I have two of these VNIX 1500s' and they are my go to lights on all of my shoots. Whether I'm filming an interview or lighting a dinner scene, these lights do not disappoint.
They are better, brighter than the Aputure LS1S, more readily available in the UK than the LS1S and are more powerful.
I shoot either with the VNIX 1500s softboxes (which are specific to them) or with a large 5 in 1 reflector for some really soft interview lighting.
I can't find a single weakness in these lights. Highly recommended and I want to add more of them to my kit!

In this Blog, we take a look into what equipment would be best for this type of videography, and offer the best support to create a success lighting set-up for interview videography.
When it comes to choosing the best LED Studio Panel available, you need to make sure that you have all the right information available to help you decide. Here at PiXAPRO, we have four different LED Studio Panels in our LECO and VNIX Range, the LECO500S/B, LECO1000B, VNIX1000S/B and VNIX1500S/B. In this blog we will take a look at the specifications and information behind each panel to help you choose the right on for you.
Making sure that you have the right type of lighting is vital to capture the right shot, and the correct beam angle that the light produces would have a big impact on this. In this blog, we take a look at the advantages of using a Wider or Narrower beam angle, and look at some lighting options for these.
