CORE Lighting at LDI 2014
UK wireless LED lighting manufacturer CORE Lighting is exhibiting at the 2014 LDI expo in Las Vegas for the second consecutive year, reflecting increased business and a strong interest across its product range in the US and central America. Two brand new products are presented in the US for the first time – the PinPoint and the ColourPoint Mk2.
CORE’s Phil Ion comments: “Following a great reception for the new products at PLASA, we are hoping for further positive feedback at LDI. We will also be making some important announcements after the show as we focus attention on developing our markets in Canada and the Americas.”
As for the new products, the PinPoint – launched at PLASA in London – is a brand new, extremely cute highly dynamic product – fully designed and made in the UK as with all CORE’s technology. Already in production, the tiny IP65 rated wireless pin-spot/birdie weighs just 700 grams while its single LED light source outputs a punchy 300 lumens.
The head is connected to the base of the PinPoint via a flexible stainless steel gooseneck for maximum focusability, and the brushed aluminium housing gives a contemporary, streamlined finish which looks fabulous in any environment. Further options include the base being capable of vertical or horizontal orientation, making it ideal for sitting on shelves.
In another touch of innovation, the magnetic base can be effortlessly clamped to metal objects of all types, including lighting, sound and video mixing consoles and control equipment, where it can provide working light in awkward and challenging spaces.
PinPoint is designed to provide feature lighting for events of all types and specifically to tastefully highlight table centrepieces, floral arrangements and other scenarios that need tight, detailed spotlighting.
The standard battery life (fully charged) gives an impressive 10-12 hours of illumination, and an extremely expediently sized flightcase system of ten units offers total PinPoint portability including an integral charging facility. PinPoint is an exceptionally versatile and cost-effective solution for anyone involved in staging or supplying event lighting and visuals.
The ColourPoint Mk2 is a lightweight lithium battery powered LED event up-lighter with full wireless DMX control. It is IP65 rated for outdoor use and offers a powerful 2000 lumen output that will illuminate up to three storeys of architecture or buildings, medium-sized trees and foliage and is excellent for powerful wall-washing in marquees, tents and rooms.
New features include a selection of inbuilt programs including ‘colour scroll’, selectable master/slave modes and PWM frequency control giving flicker-free operation for cameras at events or video shoots, in TV studios or other broadcast locations.
A DMX output on the ColourPoint Mk2 enables the fixture to be used as a wireless DMX receiver to control other nearby wireless DMX lights.
Utilising the latest quad-chip RGBW technology, the colour mixing is smooth and homogenised and as with all CORE products, it’s robustly built to withstand life on the road which is helping it to become the up-lighter of choice for numerous rental companies.
