Many times the best sources of research for devising upcoming products is deep interaction with your clients and end users. In the case of the new LightBlade line, the design was driven by a collaboration with, and to meet the needs of, NBC Universal, who create a vast array of content on a variety of platforms. The end result are versatile, highly color accurate, and exceptionally adjustable LED blades. They are available as standalone individual units but can be teamed up together in a variety of configurations, including a 4x4 1K unit and a "light ladder" that spreads the bulbs out to offer filmmakers incredible control and flexibility in lighting their projects.
