Some of the neat things we've seen thus far include:
The Dedolight DLOBA incorporates a modified double aspheric optical system. The wide focusing range covers a 70degrees angle for even edge-to-edge lighting with the widest zoom lenses, yet allows a narrow beam of 6degrees for far reach (1:11). The DLOBA may be mounted directly to a film or video camera by the screw and shoe mount that is provided. The software driven miniature electronics regulate lamp voltage to 12V DC and may be used with batteries up to 21V DC.
Kino Flo's Desk-Lite 121 boasts a 12” high color rendering T5 lamp (CRI 95) and parabolic reflector for close range or medium zone distances. Because it’s a Kino Flo, the lamp operates coolly, unlike tungsten hot light sources, and only draws about .3 amps (120vac). The trim, lightweight fixture includes on-board electronics, on/off controls, removable focusing louver and a 180 degree center mount system.
Now the “Brightest HMI you can plug into the wall,”* the M18 is a lensless, open face lighting fixture that combines the desired light distribution from the optics of a PAR and a Fresnel fixture. The unique ARRIMAX reflector design creates
diverging rays to produce a crisp shadow.
With a beam angle (HPA) of 20 to 60 degrees and a wide usable field angle, the M18 is designed to be both intense and efficient. When narrower beam angles are desired, ARRI offers the ARRISUN 18. The AS18 uses common ARRI spread lenses and a PAR reflector in combination with spot, medium and flood focus settings. Conversion kits are available to adapt an M18 to the AS18 (as well as an AS18 to a M18).
The M18 and AS18 are designed to be highly versatile and meet better lighting efficiencies in a new performance class. Intense and efficient, these lights showcase convenient, cost-effective qualities in addition to the known characteristics and high standards of ARRI HMIs. These new units also support a 1200W lamp.
The ARRI LoCaster features an easy to use onboard controller with a choice of six color temperature settings, continuous dimming and an ON/OFF switch. Weighing only 960g (2 lbs), it is an ideal companion for mobile applications. The LoCaster will be available in an attractive lighting kit configuration, with a basic selection of accessories.
With color temperature settings adjustable from 2.800K to 6.500K and a CRI (Color Rendering Index) of 90, the ARRI Caster LED fixtures adapt easily to an existing lighting installation or to the variable conditions of a location shoot. They also make use of ARRI True Match LED Technology, guaranteeing natural light characteristics, single shadow rendering, consistent light output and absolute color stability.
A wide range of accessories, including backpack batteries, power adapters, mounting devices, a 2-leaf barndoor and an intensifier, make the Caster LED fixtures suitable for any number of different applications.
SeaChanger's Nemo is the first ETC Source Four® compatible color engine with a LIFI® plasma source that delivers 10,000 lumens on a modest 300 watts of power. That's over 2.5 times the efficiency of comparable color engines.
The SeaChanger Nemo uses existing ETC Source Four front-end barrels as well as an assortment of ETC FOV optics. It comes equipped with SeaChanger's own Extreme Green wheel that extends the CMY color gamut to create more dramatic, vibrant colors.
Because of its lamp life, Nemo is the perfect solution for hard-to-reach installations, domes, atria and theme parks. It bridges the gap between incandescent and LED lighting at a price that's within reach.
Below is a quick clip of the Firefly Cable protectors... They are pretty neat because they incorporate animated LED illumination that reduces the tripping hazard, and potential legal liability.
Pelican has a new case that uses LED's coupled with a thermally efficient light engine and a Pelican Protector™ case, the RALS 9470 gives the user the ultimate maintenance-free portable floodlight station to get the job done efficiently, safely and on time. The RALS 9470 houses all four of its light heads and a multi-stage charger for that total self-contained convenience. It is also equipped with a telescopic handle and rugged wheels for ease of transport. They also have cases with two and one LED heads.
We'll keep our eyes peeled and post more interesting things tomorrow.
