Zylight to Introduce Pro-Palette
Lights and Pro-Zoom LED Spots
Zylight will be debuting several new fixtures to the global market
at IBC2017 in Amsterdam...
Pro-Palette 350-watt
Designed for TV studios and theaters, the 350-watt
Pro-Palette asymmetric wall washer produces a
soft, even field of light with enough output to cover
25-foot cyc walls. It shines pure white for a clean
chromakey wash, and features Zylight's Color Mode
to produce millions of colors without gels or filters.
Built for floor use or truss mount, the lightweight
Pro-Palette features solid aluminum and steel
construction. Up to four Pro-Palette fixtures can be
daisy chained through their powercon connectors.
The Pro-Palette features integrated DMX operation
as well as an intuitive control panel for smooth 0-100
percent dimming.
"Our IS3 panel light with Color
Mode continues to be one of
our most popular fixtures, and
the Pro-Palette brings that
same rich color palette in a
more powerful package to
provide even light output
to larger cycs, horizontals,
and backgrounds," said Joe Arnao, Pro-Palette

President of Zylight. "It's an affordable choice for
studio chromakey or adding color backgrounds for
your productions."
Pro-Zoom LED Spots
Zylight's Pro-Zoom line of LED zoom ellipsoidals
will also debuting at IBC2017. Developed as a highpowered spot or gobo projector for television stages,
broadcast news studios, and live theater, the new
ellipsoidal fixtures offer a choice of zoom lenses
suited for various lighting projects.
The product family features three, 200w lights
with different optical zoom ranges to fit most stage
lighting requirements: the Pro-Zoom Wide, with a
30-55 degree beam width; ProZoom Medium, with an 18-36
degree beam; and Pro-Zoom
Narrow, with an 8-22 degree
beam. Zylight also offers the
Pro-Zoom Plus Narrow, which
features a brighter 230w
LED engine and 8-22 degree
beam width.

All Pro-Zoom fixtures are available in tungsten
(3200K) or daylight (5600K), and feature a double
condenser optical system for clean and precise
gobo projection. The Pro-Zoom stays cool during
operation, so delicate materials such as acetate films
can be used to create low-cost, customized color
gobos using an inkjet or laser printer. Pro-Zooms also
include integrated shutters, built-in effects, and full
DMX control with RDM compatibility.
"Zylight's new Pro-Zoom LED spotlight is an
excellent choice for lighting professionals who
need focusing flexibility in an LED solution," says
Arnao. "Different scenes have different spotlight
requirements, so we've built the Pro-Zoom line to
include a choice of zoom lenses at a price point below
fixed focal length fixtures."

Allen Selects Panasonic
4K Camcorder

Videographer Rick Allen has purchased a Panasonic
AG-UX180 4K handheld camcorder for projects
celebrating arts and artists...

A

fter decades of working with mega-wattage stars
in his career as a portrait photographer and
advanced retoucher, Minnesota-based videographer
Rick Allen has undertaken a wide-ranging video
campaign promoting the work of fledgling artists. His
camera is the Panasonic AG-UX180 4K camcorder.
Now working as a freelance videographer with
Creative Images (St. Paul, MN), Allen envisions this
project as a way to give back to the community,
specifically to help aspiring creatives portray
themselves and build brand imagery in ways that will
foster their emerging careers.
"The nature of the project necessitated simplifying
the logistics - and cost - of production while
maintaining the highest possible quality," he noted.
"The UX180 perfectly fit the bill with its expansive
controls, UHD 60p recording, 20x zoom, absolutely
terrific OIS and ease of use."
Since purchasing the UX180 early this year, Allen
has used it to short a number of short "art" projects
for up-and-coming producers, musicians, dancers
and other performers, as well as to quickly capture

video for storyboarding
larger productions.
Allen said he typically
shoots UHD 60p MOV
as it gives him "the
widest latitude for postproduction," using Final Cut
Pro X, Adobe Premiere Pro
and, occasionally, Motion 5
for effects.

The UX180 offers a host of features for the high
image quality and advanced functionality required
in video production, such as a newly-designed Leica
Dicomar 4K compact lens with a wide 24mm angle
(claimed as the industry's widest for an integrated
lens camcorder), Optical Image Stabilization
(O.I.S.), Intelligent Auto Focus (AF), and relay and
simultaneous recording with a dual SD memory card
slot.

Other premium assets include a high-powered 20x
optical zoom, 4K/24p, UHD/60p and FHD/60p multiformat recording, FHD super-slow motion 120fps
recording, infrared shooting in darkness (0 lux) and
3G-SDI/HDMI output.
The camcorder incorporates a 1.0-type (effective
size) MOS sensor, and supports versatile and easy-touse MOV (QuickTime), MP4 & AVCHD file formats.
