Useful and practical, the new GRAPH’IT Lightboard is an essential work tool for mangakas and animation designers. Ultra-light and ultra-thin (6 mm), the GRAPH’IT lightboards are equipped with a touch button to adjust the brightness of the LED lighting at 4 different levels, up to 3600 lux. The LED light thus diffuses a heat-free and homogeneous luminosity with a lifetime of more than 30,000 hours without maintenance. The lightboards are equipped with non-slip rubber feet to ensure good adherence to the work table. The light surface is framed by a printed ruler.
