LEDtrix is a range of creative LED illumination systems created by the MBSi technical innovations team.
With in-set ‘fixture’ LED systems playing an ever bigger part in the way Cinematographers approach lighting modern sets, MBSi are addressing the challenge to deliver high quality, reliable LED illumination, with the introduction of LEDtrix.
Unlike ‘off the shelf’ and domestic LED systems, this dynamic new range of products has been created specifically for use within the film and television industry – LED designed with production crews in mind.
Available exclusively through Pinewood MBS Lighting, the versatile family of ultra- compact LED illumination solutions bring new levels of creative freedom in both the application and operation of discrete LED fixtures.
Central to the initial product release is the LEDtrix Five Colour Kit. At the heart of the system is the MBSi designed custom control and driver technology that is key to delivering robust LED performance.
Built around a full colour single chip LED source with onboard wireless control (CRMX) plus direct DMX port, the Five Colour Kits feature a unique edge mounting system plus a magnetic mounting plate. The custom ‘snap-fix’ diffusion configuration, which allows instant softening and adjustment of the light output, is ingenious in its simplicity.
The system’s on board control, remote setup (RDM) and robust encapsulated electronics means less cabling, helping to minimise size and weight. Built in battery level and wireless signal level indicators also help to keep things compact and neat.
Speaking about the new kits, MBS Equipment Co CEO Europe & APAC, Darren Smith says “LEDtrix is another example of our continued commitment to making low energy and LED lighting technology more widely accessible. Being recognised by the BAFTA led albert initiative as a supplier that supports an environmentally sustainable future for the industry, we are extremely keen to share our knowledge and to help Production achieve their true potential in this area. It is particularly rewarding to see the high levels of interest in the technology that, through MBSi, we are making available to crews around the world”.
The power and five-colour flexibility, coupled with the portability of these compact, lightweight units make them a super-convenient, highly capable illumination tool. Supplied as comprehensive kits, securely housed in a bespoke Peli case, LEDtrix equips the user with everything needed to deliver highly effective, creative, safe LED illumination.
