Zylight Will Demonstrate Wireless Lighting Control, LED Lighting Options at IBC 2016

Zylight, a manufacturer of LED lighting products, will demonstrate several of its LED lights, including its new Pro-Panel variable color LED soft light, the “Flat Fresnel” F8-100 and F8-200 models and Newz on-camera light at IBC.

For the first time at IBC, Zylight will demonstrate its new ZyLink Bridge, which works with the free ZyLink App to allow precise lighting adjustments for multiple Zylights through an iPhone or iPad without a router or network configurations.

Available in 1x2 and 2x2 configurations, the Pro-Panel provides the cool operation, energy savings and long life of LED technology, while eliminating the harsh glare and multiple shadow effects often associated with budget LED panel lights.

Dimmable with a 110-degree beam angle, the Pro-Panel easily adjusts from tungsten to daylight with up to a 95 CRI (Color Rendering Index) rating. Every Pro-Panel light includes a honey comb louver to block unwanted light spill and refine beam control, gel frame for customized light effects and an adjustable yoke that allows mounting on portable stands or hanging on a studio grid.

The Pro-Panel ships with an AC power cable, but can also be powered by battery through its three-pin XLR port.

The ZyLink Bridge is a lightweight, wireless fob that allows the ZyLink App for iOS devices to communicate with the integrated ZyLink wireless control found in most Zylight fixtures. The user turns on the lights, selects one of the ten ZyLink wireless channels and takes control with the ZyLink App. With its user interface, the app provides access to brightness and white light temperature controls.

For the IS3c high-output soft light and other models equipped with Zylight’s Color Mode, the ZyLink App offers color and saturation adjustments, as well as presets to save repeated lighting assignments. It also includes four effects – crossfade, strobe, police and flame – that can be adjusted to match the needs of a particular scene.

“Instead of swapping gels from a ladder in the studio, DPs and lighting designers can use the ZyLink App to adjust individual lights or groups of lights and see the results live on a reference monitor,” said Joe Arnao, president of Zylight.

Dimmable with variable color temperatures from tungsten to daylight, the Newz fixture delivers a soft yet punchy white light with true color reproduction. Built tough for unforgiving broadcast news environments, it is water resistant (IP54) for reliable operation in extreme weather.

Brighter than a 400-watt HMI Fresnel, the F8-200 LED Fresnel can be powered by AC or a dual battery configuration. Built on the same chassis as the original F8-100 “Flat Fresnel,” the F8-200 collapses to less than five inches thick for easy transport and storage.
