Lumen Arc: The Revolutionary Lighting Diffusion That Transforms Your Shoots

The world of filmmaking and photography thrives on meticulous control over light. Shaping light is an art form, and achieving the desired effect often requires a diverse arsenal of diffusers. Soft boxes, silks, bounces—these tools are essential but have limitations. Swapping diffusers mid-shoot can be time-consuming, and carrying a complete set can be cumbersome. Enter Lumen Arc,x a revolutionary product poised to transform how we approach lighting diffusion.

Lumen Arc introduces the world’s first Active Diffusion™, an electronically adjustable light-modifying system. This innovative technology eliminates the need for multiple diffusers, offering a complete spectrum of diffusion densities (from subtle softening to dramatic blackout) at your fingertips. You can achieve the perfect diffusion level for any lighting scenario with a simple button click.

How Lumen Arc Works

How Lumen Arc Works:

Lumen Arc’s magic lies in its innovative Active Diffusion™ technology. This state-of-the-the-art system utilises a unique material that electronically alters its light-scattering properties. By adjusting the voltage applied to this material, Lumen Arc can precisely control the amount of light diffusion, offering a dynamic range of effects.
