Light & Motion Set to Deliver Waterproof Stella Broadcast LED Lights

Light & Motion has announced the delivery of its new line of waterproof Stella broadcast lights and has appointed Abel Cine and Shadowstone as dealers for the lighting system.

Light & Motion’s new Stella line has built-in lithium-ion rechargeable batteries that allow the lights to run cord free for up to 12 hours. All of the Stella lights feature a wide range of light modifiers and mounting systems.

AbelCine, with stores in Los Angeles, Chicago and New York City and Shadowstone with offices in Clifton, New Jersey and Washington, DC have become Stella dealers and will offer support to customers.

“With the support of Abel Cine and Shadowstone we can get the Stellas into the hands of broadcast news agencies, independent filmmakers and studio professionals who will want to add these compact and powerful lights to their everyday tool set,” said Daniel Emerson, CEO of Light & Motion.

The Stella line includes three models: the Stella Pro 5000, with a run time range of 90 minutes on high mode and 12 hours on low mode; the Stella 2000 with runtime of one hour on high and seven hours on low and the Stella 1K “run & gun” with 110 minutes on high and 10 hours on low. Stella lights are guaranteed waterproof and withstand a one-meter drop onto concrete.

"The high lumen output and factory-sealed battery allowed us to shoot everything from studio interviews to full downpours and underwater with a single lighting option that was as beautiful as it was resilient," said Nicholas Schrunk of Red Bull Media.

Stella Pro 5000 is priced at $2,299.99 (including 1⁄4 - 20 adapter, c-stand mount, barn doors, 50-degree focus optic, external power supply). The Stella 2000 is $849.99 (including 1⁄4-20 adapter, cold-shoe mount base, barn doors, 50-degree focus optic, external power supply). And the Stella 1000 is $599.99 (including 1⁄4-20 adapter, cold-shoe mount, snap-on diffuser, 25-degree optic, external power supply).

Light & Motion is a vertically integrated design and manufacturing company that has been making professional lighting systems for over 25 years in California.
