Westcott new product was the Solix LED. The light is a single head LED unit that measures at 5600k daylight. It offers a dimmable dial on the backside of the unit and with a low 60w draw; it allows you to use their Flex LED battery. The unique feature about the Solix is the fact that you can mount barn doors using the magnetic system for easy on and off control. Finally built into the Solix they have integrated a speed ring so that you can put on any standard soft box all the way up to a 7-foot Octobank. The ring allows you to rotate the box without removing the box from the unit.
Westcott’s “biggest” announcement at NAB 2017 was the new RGB-W Flex unit. The unit allows you access full visible color spectrum from their flexible LED mat. On top of this announcement, they also announce their new Westcott Pro dimmer and standard dimmer. The pro dimmer allows you to control the Flex mat wirelessly and also with DMX options. The dimmers are now constructed of aluminum instead of plastic. An Integrated Anton Bauer or V-lock mounts make powering the light with a battery much easier. Westcott has partnered up with Innovative Dimmers to create the new dimmers. The RGB-w mats are available in 1x1 and 1x2 sizes. Don't get too excited, because Westcott says it probably won't be shipping until Q3 later this year.
