AC-ET at the 2011 BVE Show


A.C. Entertainment Technologies Ltd's Lighting and Video divisions will showcase the latest cutting-edge film and broadcast products from major leading brands it distributes on Stand I64 at the 2011 Broadcast Video Expo (BVE), Earls Court 2 exhibition centre, London, UK.

The AC-ET booth will include the renowned Avenger range of Professional Cine Support & Grip stands and accessories; the innovative new MoleLED set light from Mole Richardson; the Zylite IS3 LED Wash / Key light; the mighty output new Chroma-Qâ„¢ Daylight Forceâ„¢ 5600K white LED fixture range; associated Flags, Scrims and Butterflies from Daylight Grip & Textile; Spotlight's 1200w pole-operated lantern and the revolutionary PufferSphere 360° spherical video display from Pufferfish.

The extensive, quality engineered Avenger range of stands, grip and rigging equipment is one of the industry's most successful and popular product lines, suitable for use in all areas of professional film, TV, broadcast and studio lighting.

Billed as the next "evolution in set lighting", the latest MoleLED set light from the legendary Mole Richardson brand will be highlighted. The MoleLED Softs have been designed to provide a choice of Tungsten or Daylight units which offer all the advantages of LED Technology in a truly “Film Friendly” LED lightsource.

Another highlight on the stand is the new Zylite IS3 Wash / Key fixture. This is an LED unit offering a fully adjustable range of colour temperatures, adjustable green colour correction and full colour output from washes, highlights and effects. There is an inbuilt DMX control, plus if required, a wireless remote control via ZyLink optional accessory. The IS3 is a self contained unit which can have any colour temperature from 2500° - 9000°K dialled in. All controls are located conveniently on the back of the unit and the fixture has already become as popular in the film and TV industry as it is prevalent in studio and field applications.

AC-ET will also showcase Spotlight's 1200w Fresnel pole operated lantern from the manufacturer's entertainment lighting range.

From Daylight Textiles, AC-ET will feature items from their versatile and flexible range of high quality Flags, Scrims and Butterflies textiles for universal use in film, TV and stills lighting. All have been rigorously location tested and specifically designed to complement the popular ranges of industry standard lighting fixtures.

As the exclusive UK distributor for the Chroma-Q range of dynamic LED lighting products, AC-ET will feature the new Daylight Force - a super-bright 5600°K CCT white LED version of the innovative Color Force battens and multi-purpose fixture range. Other features include theatrical grade dimming and an extremely smooth, uniform wash.

Also showing is the PufferSphere, a unique 360 degree projection display system from Pufferfish available from AC-ET's Video division. It will be demonstrated 'live' on the stand by providing eye-catching digital signage. Fed with video content from a Green Hippo Hippotizer digital media server, the PufferSphere will prominently display the entertainment technology distributor's featured brand logos and other specially created graphics.
