At this years NAB, Westcott setup their Flex Light & Led Ice light2 in real life filmmaking situations such as a round table interview, Lighting the interior of a smart car with the flex light mounted on the visor and an exterior 8×8 Flex wall comprised of 16 – 2’x2’ panels. This was by far one of the best interactive booths at the show.
Westcott also introduced their new app that connects wirelessly to any ice light 2 model via Bluetooth. From the app, photographers and filmmakers can check battery life and increase /decrease the light output of their ice light 2.
The Ice Light 2’s built-in Bluetooth can connect to this new app from up to 100 feet away. Users can connect up to 10 Ice Light 2s in a single window and change the name of each individual light for quick identification. Toggling between units is accomplished by simply swiping or tapping horizontally.
Beside offering wireless control for streamlined studio shoots, this easy to use app is also a useful tool for preserving battery life by giving photographers the ability to lower their Ice Light’s instantly power between takes.
The Westcott app is now available for iOS devices through the iTunes App Store
