Photon Beard Highlights Africa

Date: 19/08/2011
Broadcasters in East Africa have four primary concerns: studio heat, given that they are on the equator and air-conditioning is a luxury; exceptionally high electricity costs; durability and, of course, price. Traditional tungsten lighting addresses almost none of these concerns and many broadcasters in the region have learned painful and expensive lessons from inappropriate lighting choices.

However, according to Visual Engineering Services Managing Director Peter Fairhurst, "Photon Beard lights are well designed, well made, durable, and come at a sensible price. Photon Beard's Redhead and 'Double Blonde' tungsten kits as well as the fluorescent Highlights range are fast becoming the industry standard in the region, particularly Uganda and Kenya."

Photon Beard Managing Director Peter Daffarn said, "Durability at an affordable price is very important for all our customers.  This is particularly true in Africa and the strength and reliability of our products have proven very popular in the region.  When coupled with our energy efficient fluorescent range and the soon to be released Nova 270 Plasma light our customers can put together a sensible selection of luminaires to meet their needs; a few conventional tunsgten heads for controllability, fluorescent for soft lighting with low heat and low energy consumption and now plasma for location lighting being energy efficient without the need to transport heavy HMI ballasts."

Photon Beard will be at IBC 2011, 9-13 September on Stand 11.C44

DPA Captures Sound for Netflix Original Film Posted: 21/10/2021
DPA Captures Sound for Netflix Original Film: Oxyg and egrave;ne

When it came time to record the Netflix original French-language film, Oxygène (Oxygen in English), the audio team had quite the challenge in front of them. The premise of the scientific horror film focuses on a scientist, played by French Actress Melanie Laurent, who has lost her memory, awakens, trapped in a medical pod and must find her way out before the oxygen levels diminish. Given the setting, the pod is used for 90 percent of the film and, with its tight quarters, Production Sound Mixer Ken Yasumoto and Boom Operator Josselin Panchout knew they needed a reliable and unobtrusive microphone solution, which they found in DPA Microphones.
