Whether you are photographing, applying makeup, or filming content having accurate color is paramount. The Halo 16's Color Rendering Index (CRI) score of 95 and Television Lighting Consistency Index (TLCI) of 93 means that not only will skin tones and colors look correct to your eye but cameras as well.

The Halo 16 can either be powered the included AC Adapter or by Sony NP-style batteries (not included) when mains power is unavailable. Also, unique to the Halo 16 is its USB Power Passthrough feature. Users can use the built-in USB port charge smartphones and other devices for live streaming, vlogging, time-lapse and more.
