DMG MIX named Best of Show at NAB 2018

unnamed

The brand new MIX LED fixture by Rosco and DMG Lumière has just won a Best of Show award from Digital Video Magazine at NAB 2018 in Las Vegas.

The MIX, like any fixture engineered by DMG Lumière, was designed by technicians for technicians to address the issues that set lighting crew members have voiced about the colour-mixing LED fixtures they’re working with today. The features of the new MIX LED technology provide superior colour, easy-to-use control interfaces and other innovative solutions that enable filmmakers to create the precise colour of light they want while speeding up their workflow.

MIX provides the best Rosco gel matches of any colour mixing LED source. It features 6-LED colour mixing: Red + Lime + Green + Blue + Amber + White. This enables it to generate a wider gamut of colours than RGBW or RGBA fixtures. In addition, the Red and Lime emitters in the array are manufactured exclusively for MIX – meaning that it can create colours, tones, and hues that are only available from a MIX light.

Movievision is proud to be the exclusive suppliers of Rosco and DMG Lumière to the South African Film and Television industry.

Introducing MIX from Rosco and DMG Lumière – an LED fixture that will change how filmmakers create coloured light on set.

In addition, the Red and Lime emitters in the array are manufactured exclusively for MIX – meaning that it can create colours, tones, and hues that are only available from a MIX light.

Every Rosco gel colour in the MIX library has been authenticated by Rosco’s colour experts as a match on tungsten and daylight sources – by eye, by meter, and by camera. In addition, the MIX control software also allows you to set the base colour temperature of the light before adding colour. By allowing filmmakers to select the colour temperature of the MIX before selecting the colour, the fixture provides more accurate gel matches to other fixtures on set.

The set lighting technicians at DMG Lumière know that speed is of the essence when you’re on set. This was the key factor when designing the user interface for MIX. There are no menus. Simply choose between three different modes and then choose the colour temperature, colour or Rosco gel colour you desire from there.

Gel Mode: Not only are you able to select from a vast library of Rosco gel colours, you’re also able to modify the hue, saturation, and green/magenta shift of the gel colour as-needed.

White Mode: Access a wide range of tuneable white light from daylight to tungsten, including precise green/magenta correction.

Colour Mode: Navigate through the MIX colour space using the 360° hue wheel to choose a colour and then set the intensity of the light output. MIX also offers the ability to de-saturate colours toward several different colour temperatures of white light to create different tones of the base hue.

 

MIX is being launched at this year’s NAB exhibition in Las Vegas, USA and Prolight and Sound exhibition in Frankfurt, Germany. Both exhibitions are running from 10 to 13 April.

DMG makes an impact on the South African market

20180223_092023 (Medium)

The recent DMG Lumière Roadshow hosted by Movievision saw John Harrison and Sonny Mcube along with Ron Knell from DMG and Rosco travel from Johannesburg to Durban and Cape Town to show off these new, groundbreaking fixtures.

“The people who attended the roadshows felt that DMG Lumière is uniquely innovative,” said Movievision Sales Executive Sonny Mcube. “They expressed the need for robust, soft lights that are also lightweight, durable and user-friendly for their shoots. Particular interest was shown in the DMG Lumière MAXI Switch light panel.”

“Filmmakers appreciated the versatility of the DMG Lumière Switch range of LED lights. The impressive power to size or weight proportion of the lights makes them ideal set lighting tools. They are mobile, dynamic and power efficient.”

“The technicians and their fast-paced needs were also a prime focus. Usability and flexibility are of paramount importance to them, and many admired the accessories, power options and mounts that are designed to fit directly onto the light within seconds. The egg crates, softboxes, barn doors and the several mounting options, as well as the fact that DMG has ensured maximum versatility from their lights also impressed. Their wishes were to have LED light fixtures encompassing a balance of size, power and versatility, without compromising quality. They believe they found that in DMG Lumière products,” said Mcube.

At Movievision, we pride ourselves on partnering with companies that share our ideals – delivering customer-driven solutions through technology. We share similar values with Rosco and DMG Lumière in terms of dedication to innovation, a passion for encouraging our customers’ creativity and a commitment to support and development.

“By combining our expertise, vision and technology, we will be able to offer our customers a wider, specialised range of LED lighting to better bring their creative visions to life. This is a very proud moment for us, and it provides the opportunity to showcase the advantages that our LED technology can bring to lighting film and television sets. “

For those who could not attend the roadshow, the DMG Lumière fixtures can still be viewed at our Johannesburg warehouse in Wynberg. We are also available to carry out demonstrations at your business.

Movievision is the proud supplier of Spotlight products to the South African Market. These quality fixtures recently shed light on the photographic exhibition of award-winning American photographer, James Nachtwey at the Palazzo Reale in Milan, Italy.

Titled Memory, the exhibition showcased an impressive individual and collective thought on the war theme. A total of two hundred images tell the story of our planet and were cleverly illuminated by Roberto Koch and James Nachtwey using Spotlight luminaires provided from Volume Service of G Group International.

Over 120 MI Profile and MI Fresnel fixtures were pointed at the artwork, just a little out of focus, to create an undeniable successful “back light” effect.

The exhibition at Palazzo Reale is the first international stage of a tour in the most important museums of the world.

Studio Due lights up the Arts Centre Melbourne

unnamed (14)

In mid-2016 Rachel Burke, along with Relume Consulting, was commissioned by Arts Centre Melbourne to upgrade her existing lighting design to the Theatre’s Building Forecourt.

The original design had served the premier cultural venue for over ten years but lamp technologies have changed drastically over that period.

It was time to replace a variety of fixed and moving head fixtures running discharge lamps with state-of-the-art LED luminaires.

After considerable research, the Studio Due CityColor 20/30 RGBW 20w and Turbo-Color RGBW 16w were recommended for site trial based on with their technical specifications.

“The fixtures appeared to meet our performance requirements in terms of output with a range of options for housing finishes and modest physical dimensions for both products,” commented Rachel.

Both the CityColor and the Turbo-Color, with anti-glare baffles and barndoor kits, were tested at a night trial for suitability, along with five other contenders.

All fixtures were mounted on Level 10 of the Theatres Building and aimed at the Forecourt between the podium and National Gallery Victoria. Each fixture was run in full white and full blue and a light meter was used to test light level in full output mode.

The Studio Due fixtures were deemed to have the best performance attributes in terms of colour, output and beam quality.

According to Rachel, the designers and the client were pleased with the measured lux level results of the CityColor and the improved intensity and quality of the colour washes on the forecourt.

“The deep blues and purples produced by this fixture were especially noteworthy, helping to link the ground plane with the spire lighting scheme above and with the Hamer Hall facade.”

Wide and narrow lens options were subsequently trialled on a second night to ascertain the most appropriate beam angles for a range of throw distances from the two forecourt poles.

“The Studio Due CityColor LED exceeded our performance expectations and six fixtures were ordered in a combination wide and narrow lenses for installation and programming,” Rachel commented. “The results of the new scheme have delighted Arts Centre Melbourne visitors and users whilst colourfully and creatively reinvigorated this landmark point of arrival.”
