We’re proud to announce the addition of new equipment to our G & E roster. Here’s what’s new in our inventory, available for in-house and on your on the road needs.

skypanel (s60-c)

The S60 is a mid-range model, featuring a light aperture of 645 x 300 mm and accommodating the vast majority of applications. S60 models are available in fully color tuneable and remote phosphor versions. Unlike other tuneable fixtures, SkyPanel makes no sacrifice when it comes to light output, putting out a tremendous amount of light, in a soft and uniform beam field. Brighter than a 2 kW tungsten soft light or a 6 kW tungsten space light, the SkyPanel S60 has more than enough light for most applications. At the same time, the lamphead is able to perform beautifully at lower light levels. This range of illumination and color gives users an unprecedented amount of control.

Chroma-Q (Space Force)

The Space Force is a cutting-edge variable white LED Space Light that is a modern replacement for conventional space lights or soft light sources commonly used in film and TV studios around the world. The Space Force benefits from cool running, energy efficiency, lightweight design and minimum maintenance. CCT tuneable between 2,800K and 6,500K, and natively single source, the diffuse nature of its output negates the need for silks or skirts. Extensive RDM functionality is provided through wired, or the optional LumenRadio CRMX, connections. Hanging options include a standard bridle, optional yoke and a low-profile hanging bracket.
