Designed to safely streamline rigging and cabling for Vortex series LEDs, LNX ushers in a new era of efficiency and convenience for Rigging Gaffers
Sydney, Australia – June 9, 2022 – Creamsource, developers of artisan-quality cinema lighting, today introduced LNX (pronounced Lynx), an entirely new rigging system for its Vortex series LED fixtures. Designed to bring consistency and cohesiveness to a historically disordered aspect of lighting, LNX simplifies rigging and cabling with a series of purpose-built clamps and pins for the Vortex Series. LNX enables Rigging crews to quickly assemble uniform/aligned arrays of Vortex fixtures with minimal gap between units with multiple latches and auto-locking features that ensure the safety of operators and anyone under the rig at all times. Designed to withstand heavy usage, relocation, high levels of vibration and wind loading, the system is a perfect complement to Vortex series fixtures which are known for their durability and flexibility.
“Rigging presents crews with differing, unique challenges every day,” says Creamsource CEO Tama Berkeljon. “For all the improvements in hardware and software over the last several decades, Rigging Gaffers have had to take a hodgepodge approach to rigging multiple fixtures, relying on their own ingenuity and creative solutions to get up and running. With LNX, we’re streamlining and standardizing that process among all Vortex fixtures so that Rigging Gaffers can rig quickly and safely while focusing on the creative aspects of lighting.”
All current Vortex8 owners are eligible to receive a free hardware upgrade to equip their fixtures with the LNX system via an authorized Creamsource service center. Additional information on the Vortex8 upgrade program can be found here.
