LOS ANGELES – Zylight, a leading manufacturer of innovative LED lighting solutions, today announced its Newz compact on-camera light is now shipping. Designed for broadcast news and other run-and-gun shooting situations, the Newz features custom barn doors and a unique integrated articulated arm that allows shooters to easily adjust the height and angle of the light. Plus, the Newz is water resistant (IP54 rating) for reliable operation in extreme weather conditions.

With its proprietary LED matrix, the Newz produces a soft yet punchy light with true color reproduction similar to the company’s F8 LED Fresnel product line. A fully dimmable white light with variable color temperatures from tungsten (3200K) to daylight (5600K), it provides a 60-degree beam spread at full width half maximum (FWHM) for a soft falloff around the edges. Plus, an integrated strobe function adds versatility for DSLR applications.

“LED technology offers some major advantages over traditional fixtures for broadcasters, because it produces almost no heat, uses significantly less power, and you don’t need to carry around extra bulbs,” said Joe Arnao, president of Zylight. “What makes the Newz so special is that it acts like a single source fixture and it’s flexible in the field. The articulated arm makes it easy to adjust the light’s position, and you can change color temperature on the fly.”

The Newz features an integrated one-touch quick release mount for more efficient setup and breakdown, as well as ZyLink™, Zylight’s wireless technology, so it can be linked to multiple Zylights for simultaneous remote control. It includes a worldwide AC power supply, but can be powered by 7.2V or 14.4V camera battery through its integrated D-Tap cable. An optional hot shoe accessory will be available for DSLR shooters using the strobe function.
