DeSisti Lighting

DeSisti showed their new SoftLED 2 XL which has replaced the remote phosphor technology used in the SoftLEDs with Fixed White chips. These new chips are adding 50% more light output than their predecessors while retaining CRIs greater than 96 and TLCIs of 97.5. I was told that Lighting Designers had requested DeSisti to add a longer fixture with a larger surface area. It’s nice to know they listened and acting on those suggestions. The SoftLED 2 XL uses the same power as the SoftLED 4 but is 20% brighter. On another note, the Piccoletto joins the DeSisti line of Variable White Fresnels (2700K - 6500K). This is their 300W tungsten equivalent.

Draco Broadcast - APARO

Dracast has revealed an attractive and round soft light under it's Aparo brand dubbed the “Luna.” Based on the existing Silk Ray, these fixtures will come in larger sizes with a very narrow profile (at just over ½ an inch). Edge-mount LED’s point inward while a distribution panel creates a soft, 180 degree beam spread. According to Dracast, this technology mimics ambient light by eliminating hot spots and hard shadows. Available in either bicolor or daylight, this fixture will be ideal for portrait photography due to the exceptional softness and wrap it creates around the subject. https://www.aparolight.com/ https://www.dracobroadcast.com

DSC Labs

DSC Labs Chart PileWhile not at NAB we wanted to include our friends at DSC labs. Last year after NAB they made a change to their printing substratemoving to the use of new AcuFlect 3 media. AcuFlect 3 while less reflective than the original AcuFlect Glossy, still maintains the dynamic range and color saturation that have made the original charts legendary. Why did they do this? After testing of a variety of different materials, customers reported back thatsetting up the charts was much easier under multiple different light sources, saving time and making the camera reference process go faster. As a bonus, the new AcuFlect 3 surface can be wiped down with a damp cloth and has the added benefit of being more Eco-friendly. http://dsclabs.com/

Electronic Theatre Controls

New control and fixture options were on hand for NAB 2018 in the ETC booth. For fixtures, ETC's ColorSource Pearl is the newest array for our ColorSource® line of fixtures. Available for the Linear, PAR, and Spot, Pearl is a variable, white-light option that can be tuned to output white light anywhere between 2700K and 6500K. The Pearl array includes the same great feature set and high-quality construction as its full-color siblings including an impressively bright output, a simple user interface, and a price point that is tough to beat. Designed for installations that depend heavily on white light such as studios, houses of worship, and architectural installations, this array features flicker-free operation and an impressively smooth dimming curve. ColorSource Pearl includes the recently-announced LED fixture warranty. With a five-year warranty on the fixture and an unmatched ten-year warranty on the LED array, these fixtures are definitely built to last. Also shown for the first time from the Irideon® line of architectural fixtures, the WLZ or, Wash Light Zoom fixture, is no exception. This feature-rich design is ideal for museums, lobbies, and retail environments. Similar to the other fixtures in the Irideon family, the WLZ is available in a wide variety of color temperatures ranging from 3000 K to 5000 K, and several mounting variations; DataTrack, portable with c-clamp, canopy, and special request baby pin. This fixture is ideal for low ceiling applications or in spaces with drop ceilings where a small, powerful, yet agile lighting option is needed. The most innovative feature of the WLZ is the built-in rotating zoom adjustment at the rear of the fixture housing. This enables beam angle adjustment within an impressive range of 9-78 degrees. The zoom position markers on the fixture make fixture-to-fixture referencing quick and easy. The Irideon WLZ now also comes with ETC’s updated fixture warranty of five years for the fixture and 10 years for the LEDs. Shipping of the Irideon WLZ will begin in May. ETC's new acquisitionHigh End also was on display in the booth and can be seen in the accompanying High End Post in this report.

Simply record cues and fade times into Element's cue list for basic playback, or use effects, palettes, cue parts, discrete timing and follow times to create intricate lighting looks and transitions. Need a setup that can be run by students or volunteers? Customizable Magic Sheets let you create a simple topographical or abstract interface to quickly control your rig from a touchscreen monitor.

Hive Lighting

Hive C SeriesHive Lighting introduced two new fixtures in their C-Series line which launched last year with the Wasp 100-C. New for 2018 are the Hornet 200-C and the Bee 50-C. These units are variable-white/ full-color mixing utilizing a 5-color array in the Bee and the Wasp and a 7-color array in the Hornet. Specifications indicate up to 98 CRI and 97 TLCI with a CCT range of 1,650-8,000K. All of the units share a common form factor based around a 100mm cylinder shape. The length varies according to model, but the standardized diameter and connection points mean that accessories bought for one model are fully compatible with the others. These accessories include barn doors, a fresnel lens system, a 5” PAR kit, the 9.5” Super Spot Kit, and the Profile Kit which marries an ETC Source Four Mini lens tube to the light. There are also multiple options for softboxes and kits as well as holographic spread lenses and PAR64 glass lenses for beam modification. The 100mm size permits use of existing Profoto accessories and adapters to further expand the capabilities of the fixtures. Units can be run from an AC>DC power supply capable of accepting 100-240V input or from 24-36V batteries. Power consumption for the Bee 50-C, Wasp 100-C, and Hornet 200-C are 40W, 75W, and 150W. There are onboard controls as well as wired and wireless DMX (LumenRadio) plus a Bluetooth connection for control from Hive’s free iPhone app (Android coming “soon”). The onboard controls include several effects settings for effects such are a red<>blue sequence to mimic police car lights. http://hivelighting.com/
