DoPchoice To Introduce Universal Snapbag For LED Lights At IBC

At IBC, DoPchoice will premiere the Universal Snapbag snap-up softbox, ready for the next wave of LED Fresnels, spots and other hard lights. 

DoPchoice said a single universal unit fits most brand-name fixtures equipped with five to seven-inch barndoors. This softener quickly slips onto the barndoors via a pocket-mounting system that is integrated into the Snapbag.

Once installed, users have the ability to turn the Snapbag as the barndoor rotates. Set-up and tear down are easy thanks to its 1.5 pound weight. For greater directional light control, DoPchoice also offers matching 20, 30, 40 or 50-degree Snapgrids.

Due to the success of Astera’s tubular fixtures, DoPchoice offers a Snapgrid ready for the newly released Hyperion. With a whopping 6.66 foot length this slim Sanpgrid sets up instantly and cradles the Hyperion, eliminating back and side spill while directing the illumination.
