Kino Flo

Kino Flo’s Select 20 and 30 LED DMX fixtures join the ranks of the company’s LED soft fixtures with not just bi-color capability, but adjustable full-color control. In addition to the “white” mode on the Select 150 controller, there is also a “gel/hue” mode, and an “RGB” mode. The “white” mode is adjustable from 2700k to 6500k and has green and magenta control to help match mixed source lighting situations.

The “gel/hue” mode includes presets such as blue & green screen, sodium vapor, mercury vapor and over 100 well-known lighting gels. In addition, there is also a fifth channel calledHue Angleand sixth channel,Saturation. The second color menu provides individual RGB control. This menu works with apps with predetermined RGB presets or color wheels. Kino Flo's new Select LED's also come with standard DMX and wireless DMX (Lumen Radio®), 24VDC input, and universal voltage input 100-240VAC (1.3 Amps at 120U). They also recently added new Snapbag Softbox and Snapgrid accessories. Another feature is the lack of color shift on dimming. Both of the Select models retain the standard accessories, such as choices of honeycomb, and mounting options.


Kinotehnik brought 3 cool new compact LED fixtures to NAB this year. The Practilite 600, 602, and 604 are all 80w bi-color Fresnel lens fixtures which can serve applications in the field, and small studio setups.

All three are made of durable CNC machined aluminum, with a 3.5” fresnel lens. The 604 is capable of DMX controlled dimming and all share color temperature adjustment from 3000k to 6000k. The 600 and 602 have onboard controls and share Bluetooth connectivity with any Apple IOS or Android smartphone. The remote control app is available for free download, and can be used to control multiple fixtures at the same time.

The 600 is the most compact of the three, and has a fixed focal length beam that is perfect for a small snap-on softbox. The 602 and 604 have onboard flood and spot control. They can be either camera or stand mounted, and take either AC or battery power with available power supplies and adapters. Output is equivalent to a 300w incandescent compact fresnel, with a CRI rating in the high 90’s. All are available with durable, snap-on 4-leaf barndoors. Mix and match 2 and 3 piece kits are also available with hard cases and lightweight reverse light stands.

LiteGear, Inc

LiteGear CINEMITTERBetter, Stronger, Brighter. LiteGear has found a great niche with highly modular solutions and has improved them this year with brighter emitters, wider Kelvin range, hybrid power supplies (AC or battery with one unit), and locking connectors.

LiteGear officially unveiled the new CineMitter series of applied phosphor LEDs. Exclusive to LiteGear, these new emitters set the standard for cinematic, color-correct LED lighting. Efficient, and full spectrum, these LED chips offer state-of-the-art output with a 40% increase in brightness over VHO Pro. Another distinct feature of the CineMitter is the extended Kelvin range. LiteGear pushed the lower CCT to 2600 degrees Kelvin (K) allowing for candlelight or deep-tungsten output while increasing the CRI to a staggering 95+ — that’s nearly indistinguishable from traditional incandescent sources! On the cool side, the CCT was pushed up to 6000K to better balance for overcast sky or cool white fluorescents. This increase in CCT still achieves a CRI of 95+ and provides beautiful, full-spectrum daylight. CineMitter is now standard on LiteMat S2, LiteMat+ Plus, LiteTile — and coming soon to LiteRibbon.

LiteGear LiteTile+Perhaps the most anticipated though, is the LiteTile Plus – which, if you appreciate the small spaces you can get the LiteMat, you’ll really appreciate how little room the LiteTile takes up. LiteTile is a flexible, foldable fabric that makes setting up a lightweight large soft source a snap.

Lumos - DMLite USA

Lumos introduces the Glow Panel 400C to the NAB show floor this year. Utilizing the same form factor as the Glow Panel 400F, this new fixture introduces full RGBW LED capability, allowing a color temperature range from 2800K to 10,000K as well as full-color mixing. Constructed with an all metal body, the fixture features flicker-free operation, and can be controlled via on-board controls, or remotely via DMX and RDM protocols. Drawing 400 watts under nominal operation conditions (450 watts maximum), the fixture features a bracket which allows for mounting the remote power supply to the fixture itself if desired. The fixture boasts an output equivalent to a 2.5 kw tungsten fixture, and a CRI of 95+. Various mounting options and diffusion accessories are available.

Matthews Studio Equipment

Matthews Grip introduced the MyWay Grip system, the world first interchangeable rigging system. Currently, MyWay offers thirteen mounting options, ranging from a baby plate to a twelve-inch c-clamp and offers attachments to meet every need, including a variety of baby pin and junior pin options, as well as threaded adapters.

This system is designed with utility and efficiency in mind. Barbizon customers will find this system frees up valuable milk crate space and adds a level of flexibility not found with standard grip gear. With the pull of a pin, a wall plate can be changed from baby pin to a junior receiver is seconds, all while already mounted on scene.

In the world of camera support, Matthews does not disappoint. They showcased the Elevator system, a counterbalanced elevation tower designed to give camera operators 25.5” of smooth vertical movement, as well as a complete 360 degrees of rotation. It is designed to work with a variety of camera platforms including the Matthews Slider, Doorway Dollies, and The Dutti Dolly.

The system gives the ability to create compelling vertical camera moves without having to rely on conventional dollies or cranes. The 25.5” of travel will cover the range between sitting and standing positions.

The Elevator features a simple 1:1 counterweight using Olympic barbells, infinite 360-degree panning, multiple 3/8-16 threaded holes for mounting accessories and or triangulating. Its will support any camera/ fluid head combo up to fifty pounds.

Matthews is also showed a line of furniture and lamps made from stands - more information on that coming soon!
