Compact, powerful and versatile Power LED Lighting for interviews
Hauppauge, NY – September 6, 2012 – The Tiffen Company, a leading manufacturer and distributor of award-winning accessories for the still imaging, video, motion picture, and broadcast markets, is now shipping the Lowel Blender™ 3 Light Kit. This new kit combines three color-changing Lowel Blender LED fixtures, with stands and AC adaptors, to bring further creative options and a faster way to light ‘Run and Gun’ interview setups. “Many interviews take place in mixed light source environments, such as offices with fluorescents in the ceiling, tungsten table lamps and daylight coming in the windows,” comments Steve Tiffen, president and CEO, The Tiffen Company. “Until now, this has been a real challenge for the shooter to deal with quickly. But with Blender’s high powered LED output, and ability to change color with the twist of a knob, you can easily correct your lighting color to match the room.”
As a result, the classic three-light interview setup now gains the ability for each light to output tungsten color, or daylight, or any blend of the two. Choose to match a location’s ambient light color, or change each Blender’s color to create a visual contrast, increasing contrast and a sense of depth in the image.
Attendees to the IBC2012 event can see the new Lowel Blender 3 Light Kit on the Tiffen stand (Hall 11 stand G30).
Lighting pro’s familiar with compact LEDs have been impressed with Blender’s considerable output power, boasting a full-mix brightness of 50-foot candles at 6ft, even with its Lite Frost Diffuser installed. Blender is also efficient electrically, with each light drawing only 16 Watts of power. It can be powered by its auto-setting AC adaptor or a host of DC battery options, from camcorder battery sleds to professional 12-volt sources. The Lowel Blender 3 Light Kit comes in a lightweight soft case with adjustable Velcro partitions and room inside for accessories.
