The new design of Wildfire’s UltraBlade was introduced with new LED tubes. The new model is more of an open concept to allow for more output on the lamps. The new led lamps can be used in the old Ultrablade fixtures by removing the ballast and replacing the sockets. Both the lamps and the Ultrablade are available in 2’ and 4’ option, as well as a single bank or two bank option. The new two bank option is equivalent to the old four bank style. There is no DMX control on these fixtures.



Ushio America, Inc. is a leading designer and manufacturer of light source solutions including lamps, LEDs, lasers, drivers, systems, and services. Ushio’s presentation for LDI 2017 consisted of a broad spectrum of their lighting solutions including their newly acquired Zylight and Aladdin brands.

The largest products on display consisted of their Ushio followspots including their new 230w LED Sai-300 producing a high quality, powerful 5600k daylight white beam. The Sai-300 inherits the same design characteristics of balance, ergonomics, and superior functionality as their xenon powered line of Xebex follow spots. Step-less dimming, 100% iris closure, and flash effect enhance operator usability.

A sampling of solutions from Zylight were on hand showcasing their innovative LED broadcast fixtures including a number of Soft Lights and Fresnels like the F8-B; the only fixture that combines a proprietary Tru365TM LED module with the flexibility and control of a focusable glass fresnel lens.
