Cypress, California (April 2019) — Ushio America, Inc. is proud to announce its Zylight Go-Panel product has won the cinema5D Award for Best of Show and Product of the Year Award in the Lighting Category at the 2019 NAB Show, the world’s largest annual convention for the convergence of media, entertainment, and technology. The National Association of Broadcasters Product of the Year Award recognizes the most significant and promising new products and technologies introduced in 2019.
Designed for professional broadcast news and run-and-gun shooting, the portable, IP65-rated Zylight Go-Panel is the “go-to” light for durable and reliable field use in all weather conditions. Bi-color versatility, ± Green adjustment, and variable beam spread with built-in Active Diffusion™ technology improve the user’s adaptability in their location. With the patented Active Diffusion technology, users can electronically adjust their diffusion with the turn of a knob. This breakthrough technology allows incremental adjustments of diffusion levels without reaching for a gel or assembling diffusion accessories.
The Zylight Go-Panel delivers flexibility in the field. It includes a worldwide AC power supply, or it can be powered by a 14.4V camera battery through an attached battery plate. A single integrated friction hinge allows perfect placement at any angle with one-handed tilting. No bulky yoke to deal with and the small hinge keeps the fixture profile slim for easy travel. Built-in remote control options allow a choice of DMX, ZyLink, Bluetooth, and LumenRadio.
“By combining the Zylight innovation and market insights with Ushio America’s resources and know-how, we created a truly new technology,” according to Dr. Holger Claus, Vice President of Technology at Ushio America, Inc. “Applying our patented Active Diffusion Technology together with newly developed algorithms for color control gives the users never before seen options for their lighting needs and provides these capabilities in an unprecedented form factor.”
