DoPchoice Intros New Snapbox Light Controller at IBC 2017

At IBC, DoPchoice said it will unveil its Snapbox soft box system for flex-, tube-, mat- and light-tile style LED fixtures.

DoPchoice said its rectangular Snapbox opens and deploys in seconds to create a smooth diffusion box that mounts over standard frames to soften the light emitted from the raw LEDs.

As flexible LED panels, light tiles and tube-shaped fixtures get increasingly popular due to their convenience and ability to expand to a variety of sizes. Therefore it becomes more essential to provide soft boxes and grids to turn the bare LEDs into fully professional lighting fixtures with the most desirable output. Snapbox was designed with that in mind.

DoPchoice uses self-tightening Snap Technology so that Snapbox quickly unfolds and instantly deploys into a rectangular box — ready to offer more light control. Front and sides feature quick hook and loop attachment of diffusion fabrics. The front diffusion panel is made of Magic Cloth stretched tightly across the rectangular front for even and optimum diffusion.

The sides are ready to control spill via removable fabric panels. Each comes with two sets of interchangeable side panels. One is made of Magic Cloth to provide ambient light and the second is an opaque black/metallic fabric with a reflective layer on the inside to amplify light and a black layer that cuts all spill.

Snapbox may be mounted to the light source. Its corner eyelets are for flying the system overhead on safety cables. Or, the corner elastic straps can be stretched over a standard Frost Frame/flag and mounted with regular grip equipment.

Snapboxes weigh between six and 17 pounds. They fold-up fast for easy storage and shipping.
