  1. Hilio D12 and T12 Redefine the Power of LED Illumination Litepanels NAB Booth #C6025 (CHATSWORTH, Calif.) Litepanels®, a Vitec Group brand and premier provider of LED lighting for the broadcast and production industries, will premiere its new Hilio D12 (daylight balanced) and Hilio T12 (tungsten balanced) high light output panels at NAB 2014. The innovative panels provide the light quality, versatility and intensity of an open source fixture, while offering all of the benefits of Litepanels' proprietary LED fixture design. The Hilio D12/T12 fixtures were designed by Litepanels to augment the lighting requirements of broadcast studios, as well as motion picture, episodic television, and commercial location shoots. The versatile panels emit a raw, narrow beam that provides high intensity for long throws. This intensity can also be harnessed and shaped with an array of available accessories to light an exterior, wash a set with soft light, or illuminate a cyc wall or green screen. Eliminating the need for external dimmers, the fixtures feature Litepanels' smooth dimming, from 100 percent to zero with no noticeable color shift, and are flicker-free at any frame rate or shutter angle. The panels also offer an integrated DMX module, with readily available and affordable RJ45 Ethernet connections for remote dimming control via any standard DMX512 protocol device. With no need for a heavy ballast or cabling, the incredibly energy efficient Hilio D12/T12 fixtures draw only 350 watts of electricity, comparable to a 2K Tungsten Par in terms of output. The consistently color accurate, long life LEDs provide years of service without the need for traditional lamp replacement, and they emit no UV or infrared wavelengths. Each panel contains a microprocessor operated, active cooling system, which increases manageability and lowers temperature control costs. The Hilio D12/T12 fixtures feature a removable, external power supply with convenient mounting bracket and optional accessories that include a stand mounted plate and an extension power cable. The Hilio D12/T12 panels come complete with integrated slots to hold color and diffusion gel filters and Litepanels' new NanopticTM lenses. The Nanoptic lenses spread and shape the light in circular, horizontal or vertical patterns and essentially convert the powerful open source into a soft light or broad directional fill. The rear of the unit features an LCD display and a multi-functional control with a menu-based button interface. An SD card slot is also built-in to easily facilitate future software upgrades. The user-friendly fixtures include a Standard Yoke with Junior Pin to enable easy mounting and positioning. "Our new Hilio 12 series is a great compliment to our Sola and Inca LED Fresnel lines," commented Chris Marchitelli, Vice President of global marketing for Litepanels. "The Hilio D12 and T12 provide a big, broad wash of light, and they are an ideal lighting source for interiors and protected exteriors. In combination with our new Nanoptic lenses, these fixtures are a real breakthrough in lumen output and flexibility. This pair of panels sets a new standard and continues to move our LED solution forward for our customers." The complete optional accessories set for the Hilio D12/T12 includes the 5-piece CTB or CTO Gel Set with Gel Bag, the 4-piece Nanoptic lens set, an eight foot power supply extension cable, and a power supply stand/mounting bracket.

Litepanels continues to expand its suite of flicker-free, color accurate, fully-dimmable soft lights that talent and lighting directors admire.

  2. Company's East Coast Presence Continues to Grow with New Secaucus Facility (SECAUCUS, NJ) Bexel, a unit of the Vitec Group's Services Division and a leading worldwide provider of broadcast services and solutions, will be highlighting their growing inventory of 4K camera systems at Cine Gear Expo New York, which runs September 27-28 at Manhattan's Metropolitan Pavilion. The company recently increased its East Coast presence by opening a new 20,000-square-foot facility in Secaucus, New Jersey, to support broadcast productions with a broad depth of solutions. At Cine Gear Expo, Bexel will be showcasing the 4K Sony PMW-F5 and PMW-F55 with Fujinon Cabrio PL-mount lenses, as well as the Canon EOS C300, among other offerings. "We are committed to investing in the advancing camera and lens technology that broadcasters need, and provide the expertise and equipment choices that satisfy a variety of shooters integrating HD video and cinema-style options," says Tom Dickinson, CTO of Bexel. "To do that, we are broadening our PL-mount inventory. The Sony F55 and F5 are giving our clients great shots that look like film, and the ability to be more creative, particularly when paired with the Fujinon Cabrio PL lenses. We also have a whole range of customers benefitting from the flexibility and affordability that the EF-mount Canon EOS C300s offer in augmenting a variety of video productions." Cine Gear Expo New York also gives Bexel the opportunity to introduce its New Jersey hub, and make the broadcast community aware of the company's increased services, as well as the vast inventory that Bexel now has available on both coasts. The new Secaucus facility marks a significant expansion for the company. The large, modern space located near the Newark International Airport offers robust systems for rental or purchase, regional engineering support, large staging areas and loading docks, and warehouse-sized storage. Bexel's New Jersey team recently supported the broadcasts for the entire run of the 2013 US Open, one of the longer sporting events on the company's roster, and is currently preparing for the PGA Grand Slam of Golf in Bermuda. "Secaucus is a convenient and familiar spot, and we secured a beautiful space that will help us serve our customers better," adds Dickinson. "The new facility nearly triples the size of the former Manhattan Bexel operation." In addition to the Secaucus location, Bexel hubs are set up in Dallas, Washington D.C. and Los Angeles, complemented by regional sales offices in Atlanta and Sao Paulo, Brazil. # About Bexel Bexel is the pre-eminent worldwide provider of broadcast services including video and audio equipment rentals, fiber services, new audio sales, used equipment sales, and repairs/maintenance.

  3. Bryan H. Carroll Captures the Heart of the Motorcycle Community (LOS ANGELES, CA) Walking West Entertainment and Gnarlynow Entertainment have completed principal photography on Why We Ride, the first feature documentary of its kind in years to explore all aspects of the motorcycling community and its riders. Project helmer and Gnarlynow founder, Bryan H. Carroll, (Public Enemies, Miami Vice, Collateral) is producing and directing along with Walking West's James Walker (Brake) as producer. Ed Kretz Jr., (AMA Hall of Fame Racer), is on board as a technical consultant. "Why We Ride is a story about the passion of motorcycle riders," Carroll commented. "From a family riding together on the sand dunes, to hundreds of choppers carving through the canyons - the bond with two-wheels is the same - it brings people together in a unique and memorable way and we wanted to share that joy with an audience." Why We Ride began production in July 2012 with filming continuing all over the country for a full year. From the deserts of California to the salt flats of Bonneville, visiting the rallies in the Midwest and beyond to Daytona, Carroll captured photography and interviews of riders and racers from all walks of life and all forms of motorcycling. With a special emphasis on the increasingly popular women, youth, and family groups of the sport, the film works to show how the motorcycle community continues to grow all around us as it's passed down from parents to their children. Why We Ride was shot with Canon's Cinema EOS C500 camera and paired with Codex's Onboard S recorder, which enabled 4K resolution at rates up to 120 fps. The package was compact and lightweight enough to be operated out the door of a speeding van or on the end of a 12 foot jib arm. Carroll concluded, "When you're averaging 30-40 setups per day on a documentary, the mobility and durability of the camera package is paramount." Why We Ride will be released later this fall. About Gnarlynow Entertainment Gnarlynow Entertainment was launched by Producer/ Director Bryan H. Carroll in 2010 as a production platform to develop and produce high-quality films that are informative, positive and entertaining. # # # Media Contact: Christine Purse (chris@ignite.bz) or Gail Laguna (gail@ignite.bz) ignite strategic communications 818.980.3472
  4. Company to Showcase New Offerings and Equipment Sales at Cine Gear Expo Bexel Cine Gear Expo Booth # 98C (BURBANK, CA) - Bexel, a unit of the Vitec Group's Services Division and a leading worldwide provider of broadcast services and solutions, has expanded its selection of camera solutions with the purchase of four Sony F55 cameras, a compatible selection of PL-mount Fujinon Cabrio Lenses, as well as 10 Canon EOS C300 cameras. The new camera packages will be on display at Cine Gear Expo (Booth #98C), which runs May 31 through June 1 in Los Angeles. "The investment in these acquisition formats expands the broad base of Bexel's available camera packages, and ramps up our turnkey solutions featuring leading products from the chief manufacturers in the industry," says Bexel CTO Tom Dickinson. "We have been following the market quite closely, as we always do at Bexel, and know that this is the right time to jump into an extended offering that includes a series of PL-mount cameras." The Sony F55 cameras will play a crucial role in Bexel's new 4K solutions, and their capabilities for providing camera packages that augment any major sporting event or live production, while also providing clients with an outstanding HD source for various broadcast television projects and other high-end programs. Bexel will offer a full suite of accessories with the camera, including the AXS-R5 RAW recorder, which enables incredibly precise 16-bit linear RAW in both 2K and 4K. To complement their new Sony F55 cameras, Bexel has acquired eight Fujinon PL 19-90mm Cabrio lenses (ZK4.7x19) and PL 85-300mm Cabrio lenses (ZK3.5x85). These premier PL-mount lenses provide a film-like look, and are easily scalable to enable full 4K production. The Cabrio lenses feature a detachable servo drive unit, making it suitable for use as a standard PL lens or an ENG-style lens. Bexel anticipates that the ability to extract sharp, crisp, high-resolution 4K images from a zoom will be especially desirable for live sports broadcasts. The Canon EOS C300 with the EF-mount provides users with the ability to give a project a variety of looks, as it delivers an effective and cost efficient cinema-style look that is ideal for reality programming, field acquisition, and the enhancing of high-end video production. The Canon's Super 35mm CMOS Sensor, DIGIC DV III Image Processor and XF Codec augment reality show productions at a very cost effective price point. Dickinson adds, "We're very pleased to be expanding the range of our camera lines. The Sony F55 is going to give our clients great shots that look like film, and the ability to be more creative. And on the 4K side of the spectrum, particularly when paired with the Fujinon PL Cabrio lenses, the F55 provides a larger image for 4K production. We also have a whole range of customers who will benefit from the flexibility and affordability the EF-mount Canon EOS C300s offer in augmenting a variety of video productions." Also at Cine Gear, Bexel's Technical Sales & Solutions division (Bexel TSS) will be promoting its portfolio of new and pre-owned gear. Bexel TSS is the leading dealer of professional broadcast equipment sales, boasting a multi-million dollar standing inventory of the latest audio, video and fiber equipment. Bexel TSS recently became a premier reseller of DiGiCo's broadcast digital audio consoles, and will showcasing the DiGiCo SD 11 at the booth.
