  2. IBC 2015, Stand E55, Hall 11 CHATSWORTH, Calif. (Sept. 1, 2015) - Litepanels, a Vitec Group brand and premier provider of LED lighting for the broadcast and production industries, is excited to announce the launch of their new Brick and Brick One Light Kit. Now more robust, the Brick Bi-Color provides the perfect on-camera solution for on-the-go ENG cameramen, especially for those in wet conditions. Building on the legacy of the revolutionary MiniPlus, the new Brick Bi-Color's high CRI and TLCI surface mount LEDs with custom-designed optics provide superior color reproduction that delivers accurate color temperature adjustability. These tightly binned LEDs also produce a light output that is up to four times brighter than the original MiniPlus, resulting in a longer throw that effectively allows the Brick to illuminate a larger area. By having a comparable luminance output of 100W, it offers up to 1060 LUX (98 Footcandles) at 5ft (1.5M) while only drawing 16.5W. The Brick can also adapt to any situation by providing both daylight and tungsten lighting. And with its ultra-smooth dimming from 0-100%, it is not only flicker free at any frame rate or shutter angle, but the Brick also has no noticeable color shift throughout its entire range. Alan Ipakchian, product marketing manager for Litepanels, commented on the advancements behind Brick, "Incorporating the Brick with the latest in LED technology led to extremely positive preliminary feedback. Just like the MiniPlus, the Brick is designed to be a versatile on-camera LED, so I am eager to see what creative uses cameramen find for this product." With an IP 65 rating, the Litepanels Brick offers an innovative passive cooling system and a dust tight design with water protection, providing excellent durability in harsh weather. For ultimate convenience, Litepanels has also included a 3ft (0.9m) Power Tap cable to connect the Brick to cameras that support D-Tap connections. The Brick One Light Kit consists of a half white diffusion gel, a Manfrotto 244 Micro articulating arm, a 6ft (1.8 m) international power supply, a 60° Honeycomb frame, a soft diffusion frame, and a waterproof hard case with custom foam for safe transportation. Optional accessories for the Brick include an Anton/Bauer QRG-LG plate and an Anton/Bauer Power Tap extension. The Brick Bi-Color and Brick One Light Kit is available at the end of October and will be on display with other Litepanels LED lighting products at IBC, booth 11.E55.

  5. Next Generation ASTRA 1x1 Series Also Expands with New Models CHATSWORTH, Calif., (April 9, 2015 )--Litepanels® , a Vitec Group brand and premier provider of LED lighting for the broadcast and production industries, has announced the launch of several new additions to their highly acclaimed ASTRA line of LED panels. The expanded lineup now includes the ASTRA 1x1 EP series, the ASTRA 1x1 E series, and two additional models in the ASTRA 1x1 series, which debuted last year. Building on the legacy of the company's original, trailblazing 1x1 fixture, the ASTRAs set a new standard for the form and function of professional LED panels. ASTRA 1x1 EP Series: Ideally suited for independent and field production, the ASTRA 1x1 EP panels offer a light output that is two times brighter than the company's legacy 1x1 fixture. Featuring the Litepanels tradition of a one square foot form factor, the LED panels offer high CRI (Color Rendering Index). The new ASTRA 1x1 EP series includes both Daylight and tunable Bi-Color models. ASTRA 1x1 E Series: The ASTRA 1x1 E series offers entry-level access to Litepanels' state-of-the-art LED panels. Every design element has been meticulously crafted to deliver the form and function needed for the independent content creator. The new ASTRA 1x1 E series also includes Daylight and tunable Bi-Color models, and offers a light output that is comparable to earlier LED panels. With high CRI and a traditional form factor, the new series provides efficiency and versatility at an affordable price point. ASTRA 1x1 Series: To better complement studio operations, the ASTRA 1x1 series has been expanded to include ASTRA 1x1 Daylight and ASTRA 1x1 Tungsten fixtures. Joining the ASTRA 1x1 Bi-Color panel, these fixtures offer a light output that is four times brighter than Litepanels' original 1x1. For studio installations, a full lineup of accessories is available. In addition to studio use, the intensity levels in these battery-powered fixtures make the ASTRA 1x1s ideal for location shooting, especially in direct sunlight. "The response the filmmaking community had to the launch of the ASTRA 1x1 Bi-Color panel last year exceeded our expectations," said Alan Ipakchian, product marketing manager for Litepanels. "The time, effort, research and development put into the ASTRA has produced a panel that once again revolutionizes the use of LED fixtures for the creation of professional content. We've created expansions to the line that offer a variety of intensity levels and price points, making the ASTRA available to everyone. Whatever your requirement, Litepanels has the perfect fixture to fit your needs and budget. And with the modular approach we've taken, your gear, accessories and lighting style can grow with you." All of the ASTRA panels are designed with select premium quality surface mount LEDs that are paired with custom designed TIR (total internal reflection) optics. Both the new 1x1 EP and 1x1 E series offer a Bi-Color fixture, allowing users to adjust color from daylight to tungsten as needed. An internal microprocessor monitors the temperature and delivers smooth dimming from 100 percent to zero with no noticeable color shift, as well as ensuring a completely flicker-free performance at any frame rate or shutter angle. "At Litepanels, we're always striving to deliver for filmmakers," noted Ipakchian. "With the introduction of the new ASTRAs, Litepanels is bringing the most advanced LED technology available to content creators in all segments of the industry. Once people get their hands on these panels - which are sturdy, high-output fixtures packaged in a lightweight, flexible form factor - they're not going to want to light without them." The new ASTRA series employ a modern, modular design. The manual controls are ergonomically designed to allow for ease of use in the field, ensuring easy identification and manipulation of dimming controls, color controls, and power status. The panels are all produced with aluminum I-beam core construction to provide maximum durability and superior thermal management, and also feature strong, integrated aluminum accessory mounting points and lens/filter rails. All ASTRA fixtures offer an extensive list of features, including a curved yoke design with a wide tilt range, dual integrated cable guides, and a combination yoke mounted power supply with a 3-pin XLR locking power connector and optional Gold Mount® or V-Mount battery plates. The yoke also features a removable TVMP connector and additional 1/4-20 mounting points. The ASTRA 1x1, ASTRA 1x1 EP and ASTRA 1x1 E series have taken the place of Litepanels' original 1x1 panels, introduced almost a decade ago, and are now available worldwide. The ASTRA family of products was specifically crafted to meet the needs and price points of users in every sector of the market. The ASTRA EP series starts at $900 (£558), while the ASTRA 1x1 E Daylight is available at the low list price of $665 (£412). The ASTRA 1x1 Bi-Color panel has a list price of $1,500 (£930).

  7. Company Brings Quality Field Monitors To Vitec Product line-up LONDON (December 11, 2014) - The Vitec Group today announced that it has acquired SmallHD, the North Carolina company known for its high-quality, high-definition, on-camera field monitors used by videographers, cinematographers, camera assistants and other creative professionals across the filmmaking world. SmallHD will be incorporated into the Vitec Group's Videocom division, complementing its existing brands. SmallHD pioneered the design and manufacture of rugged, future-proofed field monitors based on the company's experience in production, collaborations with other filmmakers, and from extensive customer feedback. SmallHD's association with the Vitec Group will enable it to bring a new range of innovative monitors to customers. "With the rapid increase of independent filmmakers and videographers, the need for quality, high-performing, end-to-end solutions has never been stronger," said Vitec Videocom CEO Matt Danilowicz. "There is definite synergy between SmallHD and Vitec Videocom, especially given that their pioneering drive matches our own. The acquisition enables us to offer another set of professional and innovative solutions for the production workflow, and takes us a step closer to fully addressing the needs of this expanding and exciting market." SmallHD was officially founded in 2009 by Wes Phillips and Dale Backus. The pair, along with a group of friends, had been creating spots for local businesses and entered the Doritos-sponsored Crash The Super Bowl contest with a spot entitled Live the Flavor. The resulting notoriety from winning brought national work in for the team. The demand to complete increasingly higher-calibre work made the SmallHD creatives and production crew aware of a need for better tools. Rather than buying off-the-shelf solutions, they were inspired to create them, specifically field monitors. The DP6 field monitor, their first mainstream product, not only met their own high standards but was immediately sought after by other filmmakers. When SmallHD won an unprecedented second Doritos Crash The Super Bowl challenge in 2010, the company used the winnings to develop its product line and expand manufacturing operations. "We are looking forward to joining the Vitec Group of companies," said Wes Phillips, founder and CEO of SmallHD. "It's exciting for SmallHD to be included among the great brands that they represent. We have aspirations to continue to build outstanding monitors, and Vitec not only encourages that entrepreneurial spirit but offers the support and expertise we need to move forward." SmallHD joins the Vitec Videocom line-up of brands that serves its users in broadcast, cinematography and professional content creation. Other Vitec Videocom brands include Anton/Bauer, Autoscript, Autocue, Camera Corps, Bexel, Litepanels, OConnor, Petrol Bags, Sachtler, Teradek, The Camera Store, Vinten and Vinten Radamec.

  9. Hi everyone! I'd like to ask what you think about the following, If you were to shoot a multicam television show in 4K to future proof it for the coming UHD technology and broadcast specs.... what would you shoot it with? I was looking at the pros and cons of renting either RED Epic, RED Scarlet, Sony F55 CineAlta, and the Panasonic 4K Varicam. How would you keep cost low as possible while maintaining a smooth workflow for a 3 unit camera setup? And what would you do differently for a talk show as opposed to a reality show? For a talk show, I've been told 60fps in HD is the normal recording format to give a live feel, I was under the impression that was the case only because many television cameras captured frames interlaces and not progressive? So considering most of these 4K cameras (I think) capture progressive, would 60fps still be needed? And to wrap this up with a final question, how would you both stream each of the 3 4K feeds to a switch as well as record all 3 stream individually? While keeping costs as low as possible. Sorry for all the questions, it's just it's a new frontier and I haven't found a whole lot published about this.
  10. Sachtler, part of Vitec Videocom, a Vitec group company, has released the next upgrade to its renowned FSB product line with its brand new ENG 75/2 D HD tripod. This high-quality tripod for ENG professionals is the latest design from Sachtler, who has been the partner of choice for camera operators for more than 50 years. Supporting a very wide payload range up to 35kg/77.2lbs, the ENG 75/2 D HD guarantees precise camera operation. The 75 mm bowl tripod offers operators the most robust and durable option providing the ease of use and quick set up vital for all ENG applications. The new aluminum tripod weighs just 3.1 kg/6.8 lbs, optional as ground and mid spreader versions, and incorporates premium Sachtler features such as easy and accessible controls and the high torsional stiffness required to deliver the ultimate professional performance for broadcasters. The tripod is the ideal companion for Sachtler's renowned range of FSB fluid heads, notably the FSB 6 and FSB 8, designed for all users of DSLR and HDV camcorders. Features of the FSB product family include Sideload or the Touch & Go mechanism that allows for super-fast connection of the camera to the head. When used in conjunction with the FSB 8 head, it is ideal choice for shooting in fast moving news set-ups - with a wide payload range of 1 to 10 kg (2.2 - 22lbs), and tried and tested Sachtler features such as the unique Speedbalance mechanism that enables even faster and finer counterbalance of the camera system. In addition, the robust tripod has been built to operate in an extreme temperature range of -40/+60 degrees centigrade (-40/+140 Fahrenheit). Tobias Keuthen, Sachtler's Global Brand Manager, says, "Even faced with extreme conditions in ENG applications, our tripods are extremely resilient and break-proof. Each tripod has been designed for ease of use, so camera operators can go from using the tripod to shooting from the shoulder in a matter of seconds. "This new ENG 75/2 D HD tripod allows trouble-free shooting in every environment with improved features that will provide all the control and flexibility required to deliver a best-in-class Sachtler performance." Sachtler will showcase the new tripod at their booth (#C6025) at NAB 2014.

The 1x1 LS Traveler Trio Kit offers two Mono Daylight Floods and one Mono Daylight Spot. The third kit in the collection, the 1x1 LS Traveler Trio Plus Kit, features two Bi-Colors, with a 50° beam angle and color adjustment between daylight and tungsten color balance, and one Mono Daylight Flood. "Our new, more affordably priced 1x1 LS Traveler Kits are the perfect solution for news crews and professional videographers," added Marchitelli. "They feature Litepanels' 100 percent to zero dimming, with no noticeable color shift or flicker at any frame rate of shutter angle, and they can be battery powered for field use. Our LS fixtures were designed and priced to meet the needs of field productions, and our LS Kits now make them even easier for our customers to use."
