Original or Knock Off

Recommended Posts

https://aladdin-lights.com/fabric-lite200/ or https://www.fjwestcott.com/flex-cine-dmx-bi-color-mat-1-light-set-2-x-2

 

The Price Point of each is about the same, the technical spec are kind of close. Westcott has a IP 64 rating, no IP rating listed for the Aladdin. The Aladdin is a 3x3 while the Westcott is a 2x2. Westcott seems to have more light modifiers and accessories. That's all I could find. After reading a "youtube" comment in which the author said Aladdin made the Westcott system, I started to wonder if this was true. I've seen plenty of led panels list for sale, with a quarter of the price for each, in similar sizes. YouTube channel Indy Mogul did a review, which they tested the Westcott led panel against 2 other cheaper brands,  even suggested that people purchase the cheaper brands. My thoughts are you paying extra for the Westcott IP Rating, and the full range of light modifiers and accessories. 

My original question is who is the original, and who is the knock off?

Hard to say for sure. Westcott is a US based company manufacturing equipment since 1900 and Aladdin is a Koean based company founded in  ??  Who is copying who?
