Zylight Debuts ‘Newz’ Adjustable On-Camera LED Light at CABSAT, NAB 2015

LOS ANGELES Zylight, a leading manufacturer of innovative, premium LED lighting solutions, will introduce the Newz, a compact on-camera light designed for broadcast news and other run-and-gun shooting applications, March 10-12 at CABSAT 2015 (Hall 2, Stand 208) in Dubai and April 13-16 at the 2015 NAB Show (Booth C8043) in Las Vegas, Nev. The variable white light includes brightness settings from tungsten (3200K) to daylight (5600K), while a unique articulated arm design allows shooters to easily adjust the height and angle of the light.
Designed primarily for ENG and similar remote shoots, the Newz includes custom barn doors and provides a 60-degree beam spread at full width half maximum (FWHM) for a soft falloff around the edges.

It also features ZyLink™, Zylight’s wireless technology, so it can be linked to multiple Zylights for simultaneous remote control. With quantum dot technology and proprietary LED The Newzchips, the fullyThe Newz dimmable Newz delivers a very high quality of light for true color reproduction on par with the company’s flagship product, the F8 LED Fresnel.

“The Newz is not your ordinary on-camera light. It produces a significantly higher quality of light that’s comparable to the output of our larger, world-class lighting instruments,” explained Joe Arnao, president of Zylight. “It is a soft but punchy light that complements skin tones, so reporters in the field and the people they interview will look their best.”

The Newz is the first lighting instrument available on Zylight’s new compact ZX platform. In the fall, the company plans to release the Z90plus, an updated version of its popular Z90 premium on-camera light. An optional hot shoe accessory will also be available for the Newz, so DSLR shooters can take advantage of the light’s strobe functionality. The Newz has an MSRP of $429 and will be available in May.
