Zylight Demonstrates LED Lighting Options at CABSAT 2015

LOS ANGELESZylight, a leading manufacturer of innovative, premium LED lighting solutions, will showcase its current product line at CABSAT 2015 (Hall 2, Stand 208), which runs March 10-12 at the Dubai World Trade Centre. The company will demonstrate its F8 LED Fresnel, which collapses to less than four inches thick for easy transport, and its IS3c LED large panel light, which produces millions of colors or white.

“CABSAT is the largest digital media trade show in the region, and it’s a great opportunity to introduce our product line to video professionals in North Africa and the Middle East,” said Joe Arnao, president of Zylight. “We look forward to F8 JPEG F8 new photo 1 23 14 JPG(4) demonstrating our innovative F8 LED Fresnel, which is an excellent light for studio and location work. We also offer it with a white finish or a black light ‘UV’ package for specialized lighting needs. In fact, our black light is one of the most powerful fixtures of its kind, and it creates quite the impression for entertainment venues where black light is needed.”

The original F8 is available in daylight (5600K) or tungsten (3200K) versions, and features quantum dot technology to provide a more refined and balanced natural light output. It delivers a high CRI (Color Rendering Index) as well as a high TLCI (Television Lighting Consistency Index). It also has an adjustable beam spread (16-70 degrees), patented focusing system for spot and flood operations, and an eight-inch SCHOTT glass lens that maintains single shadow traditional Fresnel beam shaping.

Bright like an HMI, the F8 remains cool to the touch and is a better choice for run-and-gun ENG applications. It delivers close to the light output of a traditional 1000-watt Fresnel, but only draws 90 watts and can be powered by a standard 14.4V camera battery or AC adapter. The F8 is also water resistant (IP54), so it is a dependable lighting option in challenging location conditions.

Zylight will also show its F8-B, a black light version of its LED Fresnel with a proprietary ultraviolet chip for specialized lighting requirements in amusements IS3C Lightpark attractions, nightclubs, or theatrical productions. The F8-B provides four times the fluorescent brightness of a traditional 400-watt Fresnel black light at the same distance, but only draws about one quarter of the electrical power. It is one of the only dedicated LED UV instruments on the market that delivers variable zoom control.

The fully dimmable, full spectrum IS3c can serve as a background color wash light or as a wide soft light. The versatile, high-output light features built-in controls for adjusting color temperature, color correction, and Zylight’s Color Mode, which produces millions of colors without gels or filters. Plus, the light includes a choice of a newly redesigned Chimera soft box or spring loaded pop-up version designed by DoP Choice.

All Zylights are equipped with ZyLink wireless technology, which makes it easy to link multiple instruments for simultaneous remote control, and can be controlled via DMX. The F8 and IS3c are available in traditional black fixtures or white fixtures, which are sometimes required for specific architectural and staging applications.
