The latest additions are available in tungsten, daylight and bi-colour versions and feature Dedo’s double aspheric optics which provide the huge focusing range, clean beam and smooth light distribution that users have come to expect. Originally designed for film makers, and highly sought after by television directors and stills photographers, the dedolight is the light of choice across the industry. Previewed at IBC 2012 and now shipping, the entire LED range maintains the traditions and heritage of the brand, to deliver unprecedented control over the shape, direction and focus of the light. David Morphy of the distributor, Cirro Lite, explains that Dedo was unwilling merely to follow the LED trend: “Dedo cares passionately about visual quality. It has taken years of research, development and component testing for the company to be absolutely certain of the reliability and consistency of every LED bulb it uses. As a result, these new lights are phenomenal. Light distribution is perfectly even, dimming has no effect on colour performance and light output is outstandingly high.” Playout platform installed at WTLW TV44 M iranda Technologies has announced a complete master control rebuild with Mirandas iTX integrated playout platform at the core of WTLW TV44 and its second channel, the West Ohio Sports Net, TV 44.2, a full power, locally owned television station in Lima, Ohio.
