Prime Time Lighting (formerly KW/2)

Prime Time LEDPrime Time Lighting Systems (formerly KW/2) has been known for many years for their fluorescent fixtures. But they now provide some interesting options in the LED fixture space as well. They offer two sizes of fixtures (15 or 40 LEDs) in two beam angles (11 or 48 degrees). What stands out in their implementation of LED technology are three things. First, they are choosing a quality LED from CREE and then they are under-driving them to assist in thermal management and help to ensure the LEDs last the 50,000 hours that everyone advertises. Second, since barndoors don’t really work on multi-source fixtures they are offering a range honeycombs for beam control and holographic spread lenses in symmetrical round and asymmetrical oval patterns. Of special interest is the “extended” or “far aperture” frame. This holds a gel or lens a few inches from the array of LEDs and creates a much more homogeneous source than fixtures that put the lenses right up against the LEDs. Finally, they offer a range of dimming options including local control, line voltage, 0-10V, and DMX. They are also proud to say that they are made in the USA.

Prism Projection

Prism FresnelThis year Prism Projection had the RevEAL Studio a Fresnel with high lumen output, tunable CCT from 2800-8000K, and beam quality guaranteed by TrueSource™ color management technology. The unit provides 7600 lumens, local, DMX, and ethernet control options including color, intensity and spot/flood (20-70°). In addition, with the MicroLouver beam shaping accessory, the beam can be controlled to cut light analogous to barn doors for conventional lighting fixtures. Profile JuniorThey also showed the Profile Junior a tunable white, true high-CRI, LED profile spot with high lumen output. The Profile Junior's size and weight are similar to conventional tungsten source ellipsoidals. The new 10,000-lumen fixture features a variable CCT range of 2800K to 6500K. It has adjustable focus from hard to soft edge and accommodates all standard ETC SOURCE FOUR® lens barrels. It also offers four shutters on a tri-plane; a B-Sized GOBO; DMX, Artnet and local control; and universal AC input from 85-265 VAC. Finally Prism showed the PowerNET which allows for DMX control over the existing power grid. Thus the system eliminates the need for the DMX infrastructure. The system can handle 1000s of lighting units by taking ArtNet or DMX out of a console into the PowerNet unit. PowerNet then directly controls the Prism fixtures plugged into the power grid. Look Mom no DMX cable!

Reflect Media

5_1Reflect Media makes it possible to create a great looking Chroma Key screen just about anywhere. Using their unique dual color LED ring light accessory for the front of your camera lens and their highly portable reflective material a great key can be achieved in a matter of a few minutes.

Rosco Labs

This year at NAB Rosco added to their diverse line of products with the Miro Cube. In one small 4 inch unit, the Miro contains 48 watts producing 3000 lumens, is RGB+W single chip color mixing rendering natural and rich colors. It is extremely user friendly with no ballast or external power supply along with a full text LCD panel of manual operation. It is also compact and lightweight with the option of track mounting adapters for DMX data track. It comes with a complete 15 to 70 degree lens set as well as a through-bolted yoke for multi-unit strip installation. The Miro plugs directly into the wall and draws only one half amp of current. Considering 40 Miro units could draw only 20 amps of power, it is perfect for museum or retail displays that need a lot of light, a fixture that is clean and neat and does not take up space, and draws very little power. With color mixing, true white and high powered ultra violet light option, the Miro allows the imagination to run free. Rosco offers new solutions to utilizing outdoor light for indoor shoots with the Rosco Light Control. Rosco Shade offers quick motorized control for broadcast professionals who need color and brightness control for windows, previously color and density window correction was applied, it can now be easily corrected as lighting conditions change through the day. Available in either manual or motorized control, dry contact switch or DMX control from your lightboard. Rosco offers the same solution to the motion picture industry with the RoscoVIEW panel. A two part system, RoscoVIEW is placed both directly on the window and on the camera lens. Cross polarization occurs by rotating the camera filter, when shooting toward the window. Over exposure from outside light can be dialed down to match interior exposure. Even as exterior lighting conditions change, corrections can be made by simply rotating the filter. Also through April 30th Rosco and Barbizon have a NAB show special for the LitePad Loop Ringlight Products.
