Two world-renowned lighting companies have announced a strategic partnership aimed at creating the next generation of lighting for on-the-go content creators.
NORTH WHITE PLAINS, NY (PRWEB) APRIL 24, 2017
Light & Motion and Elinchrom, notable brands pushing the boundaries of professional lighting, have announced a technical collaboration two years in the making.
Known for providing photographers premium lighting solutions including a collection of world-class light shaping tools, Elinchrom has become an iconic brand in the photographic world. Light & Motion, one of the most forward thinking LED light manufactures, have brought their game-changing technology to the broadcast and video world with the peerless Stella line – a collection of ultra-portable, powerful, robust continuous lights. The synergetic relationship between the two companies is an exciting development for the ever-expanding world of on-the-go content creators requesting lighting solutions that are reliable, compact, and time saving.
The timely announcement of the Light & Motion and Elinchrom partnership comes with their first collaborative release of the Stella Pro 5000 RF and Stella Pro 8000 RF. These powerful, portable, and cord-free daylight balanced lights from Light & Motion now add complete wireless control thanks to the addition of the Skyport® Protocol from Elinchrom. A new Elinchrom Skyport® Remote Control for Stella was also released to conveniently manage the lights’ settings from alongside the camera/monitor, in any environment, allowing content creators everywhere to work efficiently in ways never before imagined.
This alliance, by extension, also includes Sekonic as select light meters, including the new flagship Speedmaster L-858DR-U meter, containing Elinchrom’s Skyport® Protocol can remotely control the new Stella Pro RF lights.
The teams at Light & Motion and Elinchrom are already hard at work on their next offerings.
Both Elinchrom and Light & Motion see their collective and individual strengths marrying to bring forward-thinking solutions to the converging worlds of photography and video, particularly as end users grow increasingly comfortable creating in both.
