“It’s remarkable how accurate the Panalux Sonara is.
Whatever I tried to match it to, it matched perfectly.”

John ‘Biggles’ Higgins, Gaffer

Top Features

Panalux Sonara produces an unparalleled broad, even spectrum of pure white light, from profoundly warm to incredibly cold.

Incorporating unrivaled connectivity options with native LumenRadio CRMX, ArtNet, and Primary/Clone functionality, as well as a detachable controller, Panalux Sonara has you covered however you like to work.
