LOS ANGELES – Zylight, a leading manufacturer of innovative LED lighting solutions, will showcase its new F8-200 LED Fresnel and Newz on-camera LED light at IBC2015 (Stand 11.E38), which runs Sept. 11-15 at RAI Amsterdam. The F8-200 is designed for location shoots or studio installations, while the compact Newz is built for broadcast news and other run-and-gun shooting applications.

Built on the same chassis as Zylight’s award-winning F8-100, the F8-200 collapses to less than five inches thick for easy transport and is water resistant (IP54) for use in challenging conditions. It delivers the brightness of a 2,000-watt Tungsten or 400-watt HMI fixture, but can be powered by AC or two 14.4V standard Gold Mount or V-Mount batteries.

Available in tungsten (3200K) or daylight (5600K) versions, the F8-200 has a high CRI (color rendering index) as well as a high TLCI (Television Lighting Consistency Index). It features a patented focusing system for spot and flood operations, with an adjustable beam spread (16-70 degrees) and eight-inch SCHOTT glass lens for single shadow traditional Fresnel beam shaping. The F8-200 ships with barn doors and yoke mount.

Also new at IBC, the Newz on-camera LED light delivers a soft but punchy light with brightness settings from tungsten to daylight. Its proprietary LED matrix helps deliver true color reproduction similar to the company’s F8 product line. The dimmable white light also features a unique articulated arm design and custom barn doors for easy height and angle adjustments. An optional hot shoe accessory will also be available, so DSLR shooters can take advantage of the light’s strobe functionality.

“It’s not enough to just deliver brightness. Our customers are looking for refined, natural light that doesn’t draw a lot of power and doesn’t generate a lot of heat,” said Joe Arnao, president of Zylight. “Our new F8-200 makes location shooting a lot brighter and a lot cooler, and our Newz on-camera light sets a new standard for ENG lighting quality.”

Zylight will also demonstrate other lighting instruments in its product line. The F8-100 LED Fresnel, which shares many features with the F8-200, draws only 90 watts but provides close to the light output of a traditional 1000-watt Fresnel. The F8-B is one of the only dedicated LED UVinstruments with variable zoom control. Designed for artistic black light effects, it delivers 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.

The IS3c is a wide, high-output soft light with built-in controls for adjusting color temperature, color correction, and Zylight’s Color Mode, which produces millions of colors without gels or filters. It can serve as a background color wash light or as a wide soft light, can be controlled via DMX, and includes a custom soft box. Both the IS3c and F8-100 are also available in white for permanent installations. All Zylight instruments include ZyLink™ wireless technology, so multiple Zylights can be linked for simultaneous remote control.

Founded in 2003, Zylight LLC is the leading manufacturer of intelligent LED lighting instruments for the film and video production industry. Every model in its easy-to-use lighting system produces fully calibrated bright white light, while some also provide a spectrum of adjustable colors without gels. Full wireless control and DMX integration are included, and AC or DC power options are available. The Zylight state-of-the-art LED system is truly the most unique and flexible lighting system on the market today. With more than 50 dealers worldwide, Zylight continues to develop innovative LED lighting solutions to help make your job easier. More Than Bright–Zylight. Find out more at www.zylight.com.
