Gekko to introduce lenslite D-SLR mount at IBC2011 Posted: 23/09/2011
Gekko to introduce lenslite D-SLR mount at IBC2011

 

The D-SLR mount allows direct attachment of the lenslite lamphead to Canon 5D, 7D and Nikon D3 cameras. Fixing directly to the base of the camera via the tripod screw, the mount secures 15 millimetre bars which hold the lamphead on axis around the lens. The base of the mount has an additional fixing so the camera/lenslite combination can still be mounted on a tripod, but with the centre of gravity moved forward for stability.

Strong interest in Gekko LED lighting reported at BVE 2011 Posted: 02/03/2011
Strong interest in Gekko LED lighting reported at BVE 2011 Gekko Technology reports an outstandingly successful Broadcast Video Expo 2011, held in London 15-17 February. Figures issued by the organisers state that the event attracted over 15,500 visitors and 240 exhibiting companies. 
 
"BVE 2011 was the hardest three days of my life!" comments Gekko Technology's Business Development Manager Ian Muir. "The number of serious visitors to our stand during the show's three-day duration was certainly on a par with last September's IBC. We talked to a good mix of traditional broadcasters, cameramen and film people, largely from Britain. The merits of LEDs are really getting through. People understand and appreciate the broad spectral quality of Gekko lights, the portability, high energy efficiency and long component life. They also recognise the huge creative potential offered by variable-colour-temperature fixtures. Broadcasters are now routinely ordering complete LED-based systems rather than supplementing installations based on less efficient technologies."
