DEDOLIGHT

DESCRIPTION

The Dedolight and its unique system was conceived and designed by Director of Photography Dedo Weigert of Munich, Germany. The project was initially undertaken to fill his own exacting requirement for a powerful yet highly controllable light source which would occupy a minimum amount of space, draw a minimum amount of electricity and produce unprecedented light quality.

So immediate and profound was the impact of this new system on cinematography, that in less than 3 years, the Dedolight went from an idea in the mind of one creative director of photography in Germany, to a Technical Achievement Award given by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences in the U.S. In just a few years, the Dedolight had established itself as a significant creative contributor to a long list of motion pictures by top Hollywood professionals.

Today, the Dedolight continues to build upon its long list of credits in film, television and still photography and continues to build upon its extensive range of luminaires and system accessories. The unique control capabilities of Dedolight, along with its low projected heat and minimal current draw, also make the Dedolight the ideal choice to light the world's finest galleries, museums, and architectural sites.

ESE

DESCRIPTION

ESE was founded in 1971 in El Segundo, California. The co-founders' objective was two-fold; first to ESE's customers, "... to provide quality products, delivered on time along with excellent service" and also first to ESE's employees, "... to provide both a pleasant work environment and a stable company which can survive and grow as time marches on". 

These simple statements, written long before the now popular "Mission Statement," still guide us today. Our goal is quite clear - to take care of our customers and to take care of our employees. And as a result, ESE has experienced tremendous growth of our customer base, with our line of products and for our employees. 

ESE's initial line of products consisted primarily of Digital Clocks and Timers, Digital Multi-meters and Digital Frequency Counters. These were some of the first examples of what the "Digital Age" had to offer and just the beginning of ESE's current product families. 

Shortly after inception, ESE began devoting a large part of our R&D to the Broadcast Industry. As the Broadcast Industry grew, so did ESE. In 1975, we introduced our first Master Clock, the ES-160 (now the ES-160E). This unit used a proprietary time code (TC76) that has twice evolved (TC89 & TC90) and now has, in effect, become a standard in the industry. 

In the late 70's, ESE introduced an IRIG-B Time Code Reader, the ES-270. This product, marketed primarily to the Military, has given rise to two product "families" ("IRIG Time Code" Products and "Airborne/Ground Mobile" Products). Still marketed mainly to the military, these products have also been installed in commercial and private planes and have also gone into orbit on the Space Shuttle. 

A family of Distribution Amplifiers (DA's) was added to our line of products in the early 80's. This family now consists of nearly 20 different standard models, including Digital & Analog Video, Audio & Time Code DAs. 

The GPS (Global Positioning System) was declared to be at "Initial Operational Capability" in December of 1993. Four months later, at the NAB'94 (National Association of Broadcasters) Convention, ESE introduced the ES-185, our first GPS Master Clock. (The GPS was later declared to be at "Full Operational Capability" in April of 1995). The ES-185, since upgraded to the ES-185E is complemented by at least a dozen other GPS products. 

In 1996, NENA (National Emergency Number Association) issued the Technical Reference NENA-04-002 for a Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP) Master Clock Standard. At the NENA'97 Conference and Trade Show, ESE introduced the ES-911/GPS. The ES-911/GPS, designed to meet the specifications described in the NENA-04-002 Standard, has spearheaded ESE's commitment into the Public Safety Sector. 

Since day one, ESE has maintained the ability to customize products to meet a customer's specific requirement. As of our 45th anniversary in 2016, ESE has designed and built more than 2600 different "Specials." These Specials are sometimes a simple modification to an existing product while on many occasions require that a brand new unit be designed from scratch. 

Today, ESE's line of products consists of eleven product "families" including "Master Clocks Systems", "9-1-1 Products", "Clocks and Timers", "Distribution Amplifiers", "SMPTE Time Code" Products, "Audio" Products, "Video" Products, "Time Control" Products, "IRIG Time Code" Products, "Airborne" Products and Time Code "Converters and Translators". Products within these families are usually available with one or more "Options" allowing semi-custom units to be built for many unique applications. 

These product families have evolved primarily because of customer input and ESE's "flexibility". Listening to the needs and concerns of our customers has proven to be one of the most important factors in ESE's continued growth. Equally responsible is our commitment to our employees. Since 1971 our philosophy of promoting from within and practicing a flexible and understanding style of management has provided continuous opportunity for all aspects of employee growth.

GLIDECAM

DESCRIPTION

Glidecam Industries, the manufacturer of camera stabilization systems and accessories, for use by both film and video makers, was founded by Martin Stevens in 1992. The actual origin of the first Glidecam device dates back to the Spring of 1991. Martin designed it when he was producing and directing his first feature length motion picture. Martin had become displeased with the current state of the art of camera stabilization systems and particularly the very high prices of these systems. He reasoned that if he could build a more affordable and capable camera stabilizer for his own production needs, using what he now refers to as "a common sense approach", then perhaps others would find need of the same. And so the "Glidecam" was born in 1991. Glidecam Industries, Inc. now has over 20 products and hundreds of dealers worldwide. Glidecam separates itself from its competition by offering a product line that is both technologically advanced and yet priced very affordably. Glidecam's customer service policy of thoroughly helping its customers both before and after a sale has won them a very happy customer and customer referral base.

KINO FLO

DESCRIPTION

ABOUT THE COMPANY

In 1987 while working as a Gaffer, Frieder Hochheim together with his Best Boy, Gary Swink, was asked by a DP to get creative in a small set space. Working off the back of a truck, they put together fluorescent lamps in a hollowed-out foam block and stuck it to the ceiling. This was the humble beginnings of Kino Flo. Through experience on sets and tremendous support from cinematographers, they improved their design. 

The first film that really showed how Kino Flos were a problem solver was Barfly. While shooting Barfly, the notion of creating a company called Kino Flo was born. (“Kino” means film in German and “Flo” is short for fluorescent.) Kino Flos were soon welcomed by cinematographers and are now considered a staple of a standard motion picture lighting package.

For 30 years, Kino Flo Lighting Systems has been a manufacturer of high quality LED and FLO soft lighting equipment for use in motion picture lighting, television, video and photography. They are well known for their innovative color-correct True Match® lamps and compact fixtures with high frequency, flicker-free ballasts. In 1995 Kino Flo received a technical achievement award from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences for the development of color-correct lamps for film.

Located in Burbank, CA, Kino Flo has expanded its operations and designs and manufactures a wide range of LED and FLO soft lighting systems. Worldwide distribution provides support for local studios or productions shooting on location.

Kino Flo continues to be a leader in the industry introducing new developments and constantly improving the efficiencies and formulations of its products including latest LED technology with dimming, dial-in color temperature control, Gel presets and dial-in 360° colors with soft, cool, high color rendering features (CRI 95), the same high quality of light Kino Flos are known for. 

It has always been Kino Flo’s mission to work with lighting professionals who meet daily production challenges on location or in the studio, to design and improve our line of soft lights. We have been blessed to have a group of dedicated designers, engineers, fabricators, managers and sales people all contributing to producing the quality products the world has come to know as Kino Flos.

We would like to thank all of our colleagues and customers who have supported Kino Flo through the years and we look forward to serving you for the next 30 years. Enjoy the light.

Regards,

Frieder Hochheim
