STARMAKER by @FLUOTEC The perfect lighting tool for todays digital cinema productions affordable rental rugged high quality lighting

FLUOTEC Starmaker Series
The perfect lighting tool for todays digital cinema productions, FLUOTEC’s StarMaker is a rugged & powerful location LED production light, available in 2 levels of protection against the elements. The IP-20 model is designed for internal, dry location environments. The IP-65 model is designed to be water & dust proof, for use in exterior shoots where the weather elements can be unpredictable.

Both lights are bicolor flat LED panels with the separate ability to control color mix between daylight & tungsten, as well as brightness levels. They have 90+ CRI, and ___ TLCI color rating for photo quality lighting. They can be used at full daylight color (6200K), full tungsten (2800K) or any color mix level in between.

This ability allows custom lighting to match a locations ambience, which can often be a unique color mixture of tungsten, fluorescent and window light. You can also vary the light’s color from that of the ambient location, to contrast the subject more against the background, creating a visual sense of depth, or even resolve cosmetic issues such as warming up a pale skin tone.

StarMakers are filled with creative options. Its impressive beam quality delivers smooth even output, that bathes your subject in a beautiful soft white light, without the multi-shadow artifacts of lesser LED fixtures. Whether you are lighting a dramatic feature film or doing a live location news feed, your talent will look great. They are also the perfect choice for constant source lighting in still photo shoots, either in studio or on location.
StarMakers deliver strong light output across their 45 degree beam angles, with a powerful 111 foot candles at 6 feet, and 28 foot candles at 12 feet at. Both measurements are at full neutral white brightness of both colors. Output is controlled locally, and is dimmable from 0 to 100% without color shift, using a digital LED display on the back control panel. Their beam can be trimmed with either 4 way barndoors or accessory 20 degree honeycomb grid, for precise lighting, and control of spill. Each light also comes with a gel frame for adding diffusion to soften the output.
The lights can be mounted to grids with an industry standard C clamp or on stands using the supplied female stand fitting. In stand use, the lights weight is centered for exceptional balance, even when tilted, due to its off-center yoke. A tilting handle on top makes aiming and trimming the light both easy & convenient.
StarMaker LEDs are air convection cooled, through heat sink fins installed on the rear of the units.  This removes the need for cooling fans, which can often be intrusive into audio microphones on a shoot. The light is completely silent.
They are powered either by auto-setting 90-240V AC, or 14 Volt V-mount battery plate on the unit. Battery life will vary, depending on its size, age and level of charge. On / off power is controlled by a switch on the rear of the unit. If using AC, there is also one installed in the power cable. This can be an advantage if the light is positioned high up on a stand, and therefore hard to access.
StarMaker LEDs rugged, thick-walled, all metal housing makes them perfect for rental houses, and location shoots, where equipment passes through many hands, and can get tossed around over the course of a production.  The lights weigh just over 10 lbs, and their rugged construction helps insure a long productive fixture life.
The IP-65 model StarMaker can be used in full sand or dust storms, as well as full rain storms from all angles. This makes it perfect for news crews working in all types of weather, including those challenging live TV shots taken during raging storms. Its body is sealed and fully protected against the elements.
Both IP-20 and IP-65 models of FLUOTEC StarMaker LEDs are available separately, or in 1, 2 & 3 light pack combinations. Each pack contains lights & stands, with switched AC cables, plus female stand fittings, in a carrying case. The 3 light pack also includes, as accessories, a 20 degree egg crate and 2 barn door sets. The StarMaker 3 light pack comes in a more rugged carrying case.

New powerful VEGALUX 300 BiColor StudioLED Fresnel

Fresnels are workhorses of stage lighting and the most common luminaire used on television and motion pictures.

Introducing the VegaLux 300® StudioLED FRESNEL® 12” 300W BiCOLOR Motorized Zoom DMX Dimmable

VEGALUX-1920

This exciting development is important to Cinematographers, Producers, Gaffers, Photographers, and Film & Broadcast Televisión Studio Executives, because until now, the use of inefficient incandescent lighting, has been the norm in Production Lighting for Studios, Locations, Stages and Theaters.

FLUOTEC´s advancements on research and engineering allowed this new generation of LED Fresnels to be two times brighter and more efficient than previous models.
You can achieve extremely powerful illuminance levels of 22,620 lux at 6ft in Neutral White-4115K, in Cool White-5200K, you get 12,910 lux and in Warm White-3200K 11,320 lux also at 6ft.

The VEGALUX 300™ emits the pure white light needed for professional applications, so you can substitute your inefficient fixtures right away, manufactured with world class industry standards, it is a highly professional, dependable and simple to use fixture, that can be seamlessly integrated with all kind of lighting fixtures into your current production’s workflow.

You can design your morning TV production to have a cool white DAYLIGHT 5600K tone, at Midday you can choose to have a NEUTRAL WHITE tone of 4,115K and for the Evening you can achieve the WARM WHITE color temperatures of 3200K without the need of using gels or any human supervision, all CCT changes may be controlled through a remote DMX dimming console.

The VEGALUX 300 includes a sturdy built 8-Blade Barn doors for precise and accurate control of the light beam.

It is an extremely silent fixture with an optimized passive-active cooling system with quiet fans for studio or location applications.

The Vegalux 300™ Fresnel with the Nebula Diffusion Chamber Technology® system, mixes and diffuses the light rays of each LED and emit a pure white light output, specially designed for Broadcast & Motion Picture applications.

It uses 2 two sets of high quality, powerful White LEDs with high TLCI Index and CRI+90 that works in the 3200K-5200K CCT range.

The LEDs are set in a sink with a system of low-noise fan, for heat dissipation and protection and placed on a Circuit Breaker MPCB with low thermal resistance, an electronic active temperature control system prevents thermal conditions of stress in order that the LEDs operate at their best performance.

The VEGALUX 300™ LED technology is digital, and has the FLUOTEC´s exclusive Halodim® BiCOLOR Stepless CCT & Dimming control algorithm for 0% to 100% dimming, this important feature can save you precious working costs, because there is no need to move the fixture while putting scrims, or re-rig them while they are installed in high grids of television studios, because the brightness level can easily be controlled with the on-board control panel or a remote DMX console.

The Motorized zoom changes seamlessly the variable beam angle from spot 16o to flood 43o either through the local LED Control Panel or also remotely via DMX.
You can have up to five (5) 300W 2.81A VEGALUX 300™, Fresnel lights connected to a 20A, 120VAC house outlet without breaking a fuse, compared to just one 2,000W inefficient incandescent fixture.

This efficient innovative and ground breaking Fresnel lighting fixture will save between 75-80% of the cost of your electric bill, and because LED is a cool digital light, you will also save costs, eliminating the need of air conditioning for your studio.

Light Meter Reviews – Lighting Passport

An excellent review of the Lighting Passport of @asensetek from @KevinWillmorth

Lumenique - Inside Solid-State Lighting

This is the Lighting Passport Flagship set. Includes case and accessories in a neat package. This is the Lighting Passport Flagship set. Includes case and accessories in a neat package.

I first saw this device at Light+Build Frankfurt last fall. I was impressed enough to find one added to my collection of tools. The Asensetek Lighting Passport is a unique product in several ways. First, it is essentially a meter head (where the cost is), coupled to an iOS or Android device that does all the computational and display work. The lighting head has a nifty slide action receptor cover, so there is nothing to come off or get lost in a bag or pocket. The measurement range is as broad as any of the other spectrometers tested here, plus some. Not only does it produce the expected spectral power distribution, CRI, CCT, CIE 1931 and 1976 coordinates and illumunance in lux and Fc, it also delivers CQS values.
