DoPchoice Refine
Accessories

It's been nearly a decade since DoP Stefan Karle established
DoPchoice in Munich, Germany to provide a fresh take on
light refining accessories for the new breed
of professional LED lighting fixtures...

A

s LED lighting options continue to proliferate,
so grows the company's line of essential
accessories.
The first challenge was redesigning the timehonored Butterfly grids. Karle's Butterflies are lighter
weight, with unique bungee cable fastening so they
fit a variety of frames, and feature a proprietary
bracket system which makes them easier to install
and to assure there will be no sagging. When it
comes to durability, DoPchoice Butterflies stand the
test of time due to more robust fabric and stringent
manufacturing techniques that keep each individual
cell in the grid stable.
To quickly and easily set up LED soft light fixtures,
DoPchoice devised their patented Snap Technology,
for their proprietary SnapFrames which ensures that
their light directing tools stay taut so the light goes
exactly where is it should, without sag.
DoP's SnapBag is a new take on the softbox. This
patented instant snap-up solution features quick,

self-tightening
technology
that eliminates the need for
a hefty speed ring mounting
assembly. Deploying and
tightening
a
Snapbag
takes about 30 seconds to
efficiently provide soft light
with no spill. The reflective
interior surface of a Snapbag
amplifies light output. Made
in Rectangular, Octagonal
and China Ball shapes, they
maximize the illumination
without use of flags to
prevent spill.
DoPchoice's
Rabbit-Ears
system is so versatile that a
single Snapbag can quickly
and securely be mounted to
various LED light brands and

models. The Rabbit-Ears Rectangular suits 2x1 panels,
Rabbit-Ears Mini fits 1x1 panels and the Rabbit-Ears
Space is customized for the variety of space lights.
To enhance creativity and further control light
spread, DoPchoice designed its patented Snapgrid
that easily mounts on the front of most SnapBags
or can simply affix to Frost Frames via elastic strap
corners.
The revolutionary SnapFrame ensures that
Snapgrids stay taut so the light goes exactly where
it should, free of sagging. To
widen or narrow the light
from a soft box, Snapgrids are
available to spread the light
in 30°, 40°, 50° and 30°/50°
combinations.
At IBC2017 DoPchoice will
unveil its no hassle SnapBox
soft box system for flexible
and light tile-type fixtures. The
rectangular SnapBox snaps
open and deploys in seconds
to create a smooth diffusion
box that mounts over flags
and frames to soften the light
from raw LEDs. Removable
side and front panels allow for
precise spill control. The new
DoPchoice SnapBox will be
displayed in a variety of sizes,
from 4'x2', 4'x4' to 8'x4'.

MYWay Grip

MyWay Grip uses industry standard pins

atthews Studio Equipment known for creating
innovative state of the art 'Technology That
Complements Your Imagination' will feature their
unique new rigging system, MyWay Grip, at IBC2017.
MyWay - It's a Lighter Way, A Faster Way - for almost
limitless grip support options.
"Today stage and location set ups are
getting more and more complicated and
creative, often stressing out grips
that are hampered by support
equipment," said Tyler
Phillips, VP of Marketing
and Product Development
at
Matthews
Studio
Equipment. "Sometimes there
isn't enough space in the truck for
what is needed. Or, the budget is too
restrictive. Even more challenging, creatives
often change their minds on a whim and then expect
a new set up in minutes - unaware of the limits of
equipment available."
MyWay Grip rigging system was designed to eliminate

these challenges. Geared to everyone from big-budget
motion picture or television grips and gaffers to the
fledgling or independent content creator, MyWay
Grip is a totally customizable set up with unlimited
possibilities.
Based on a two-part interchangeable rigging system,
MyWay Grip uses industry standard pins, receiver and
clamps with custom connectors which attach to secure
collars mounted on plates and clamps.
This allows the user to reduce the amount of
dedicated rigging required on-set, saving space,
weight and set up time. Because this is modular, the
restrictions are only in the user's creativity. The system
permits unique rigging arrangements to meet various
on-set challenges, all with minimal hardware. You
can even make quick on-set modifications of installed
rigging to accommodate common on-the-fly changes in
lighting and camera configuration.
Because MyWay Grip offers a large selection of
options, the system takes up less space, weighs less,
and stores easier. Not to mention, lowers the need (and
cost) of one-off pieces. www.msegrip.com
