Cinema lighting manufacturer Creamsource has announced an entirely new rigging system for the company’s Vortex range of LED film lights. It’s called LNX, which is pronounced “Lynx.”
Here are six reasons to find out more about LNX:
The LNX is quick to build
Creamsource has designed LNX to be the quick solution for creating large rigs from smaller fixtures. You can quickly assemble uniform and aligned arrays of Vortex lights using the LNX system. There will also be a minimal gap between units. LNX is easy to use as there is no alignment time, no measurement time and you get tidy cable runs.
The LNX is ready for heavy use
Creamsource says that LNX lighting arrays will withstand heavy use. They give examples of transport and relocation, high vibration levels and wind loading. The system is built for heavy use, indoors or extreme outdoors.
Safety first with the LNX
The system is built around multiple mount points. This means it is more robust and reliable than traditional single-point fixture rigging. There are multiple latches and auto-locking features which ensure the safety of operators and anyone under the rig.
With the system, you can build anything from a small rig with only two units up to as large an array as you need. Creamsource state that there is no limit to how many lights you can rig together. The only limit is your ability to lift the rig.
Vortex8 upgrade program
Creamsource is going to run a free hardware upgrade for legacy Vortex8 owners. This means that they will receive the new corner block with every purchase of the LNX system. Creamsource will make more information about the upgrade program available soon.
The launch video
Creamsource’s launch video for LNX is a short film called SEPPUKU. It may not be suitable for a younger audience or viewers with a nervous disposition as it is quite gory. However, it is one of the best and most surreal product launch videos you will see this year.
Pricing and availability
Creamsource will announce shipping timelines and pricing for LNX later this year.
