Zylight, a manufacturer of professional LED lights, will introduce wireless lighting control with the ZyLink Bridge at the 2016 NAB Show.
Zylight said the new ZyLink App with the Bridge, which works on iPhones and iPads, will wirelessly allow precise lighting adjustments for multiple Zylights. The Bridge is a lightweight fob that allows the ZyLink App for iOS devices to communicate with the integrated ZyLink wireless control found in most Zylight fixtures.
There are no routers required and no networks to configure. Simply turn on the lights, select one of the ten ZyLink wireless channels and take control with the ZyLink App.
Designed with an intuitive user interface, the ZyLink App provides access to brightness and white light temperature controls, plus color and saturation adjustments for the IS3, IS3c, Z90 and other models equipped with Color Mode.
It also includes four effects – crossfade, strobe, police and flame – that can be adjusted to match the needs of a particular scene, as well as presets to save repeated lighting assignments.
“The ZyLink Bridge was the next logical step for our remote control technology,” said Joe Arnao, Zylight’s president. “Lighting professionals have never had this level of wireless control on the set. Instead of climbing ladders and swapping gels, DPs and lighting designers can sit in front of a reference monitor and use the ZyLink App to adjust individual fixtures or groups of lights.”
Priced at $129, the ZyLink Bridge will be available April 1. The ZyLink App is available for free at the App Store.
