The LS C300d Mark II LED is an enhanced version with 20% more power, refined features, and advanced connectivity. Aputure uses Chip on Board (COB) technology to produce a 5500K color temperature, with power consumption of just 350W, while outputting 3500 lux of light with an efficient reflector at a distance of 9.8'. In addition to power efficiency, this fixture also has a CRI/TLCI rating of 96, indicating accuracy in color rendering. The fixture's ballast/controller employs 0 to 100% Linear, Logarithmic, Exponential, and S-Curve dimming and is separated from the body of the fixture, making it lighter and reducing its size. A mounting base is included for use with an optional clamp, allowing attachment to a light stand to distribute the weight.

The LS C300d II's performance is backed by its design. The all-aluminum construction goes through numerous fabrication steps, and the reflector and accessory mount is the widely used Bowens S-Type. A wireless remote that allows you to control on/off and dimming functions from distances up to 328' is included. And speaking of control, Aputure also offers the Bluetooth Sidus Link App Control which allows wireless adjustments of all the light's functions as well as effects such as Lightening, Pulse, Flash, and Explosion. Ideal for sound-sensitive environments, the LS C300d II can be seen but not heard thanks to its highly efficient, passive cooling system. The LS C300d II is ready for worldwide use thanks to its 110-240 VAC power supply but it also has two battery plates, allowing you to use V-Mount batteries for external power when mains current is unavailable. The LS C300d II is delivered with a power cable, a DMX cable to connect to the ballast, a wireless remote, a base for an optional clamp, and a beefy carrying case that can support 220 lb to protect the light during transport and storage.

2015… Multicam Madness

IMG_2060_1100x825

We had the pleasure to be a part of some multicam fun last year. For one, we drove a whole crew down to Phoenix and put on the GMC Satellite Media Tour @ Superbowl XLIX . From the floor production to the in-truck switching, we handled it all and delivered it repeatedly to over two dozen news markets around the country where they hit in on at various moments throughout the many different morning programming outlets, both TV and radio. IMG_2784_1100x825Not only did we have fun at the Superbowl but we also had our hand in the live multicam coverage of the revealing of Roland Emmerich's new blockbuster hit, Independence Day: Resurgence, which was broadcasted live internationally on multiple streaming websites from on-set in Albuquerque Studios. Those are just a few examples but it was sure a blast getting to be a part of them and we can't wait for the next ones!
