Aputure Light Dome III and Light Dome Mini III

Aputure has just announced new and updated versions of their most popular lighting accessories. The new Aputure Light Dome III and Light Dome Mini III are much faster to setup compared to the previous versions, thanks to their new hinge-based mechanism allowing users to deploy the softboxes a lot quicker, which saves time on set. The new lock design also allows the softboxes to be packed flat for travel making for a much more efficient use of space. The flagship softbox Light Dome III is compatible with all Bowens Mount point-source LEDs including the top of the range LS 1200d Pro and the newest Electro Storm Series, while the Light Dome Mini is the perfect fit for the LS 600d Pro, LS 300d and amaran 300c LED lights.

Sound Devices A20-Nexus Go True-Diversity wireless receiver and AT20-TX transmitter

Sound Devices expanded their Astral series with the introduction of the new A20-Nexus Go True-Diversity wireless receiver and the new A20-TX digital wireless transmitter. The A20-Nexus Go is compact and portable solution with support for 4, 6 or 8 receivers making it ideal for commercials or documentaries. Finding a clean and open frequency anywhere in the world is intuitive and easy thanks to Sound Devices’ SpectraBand technology, while assigning transmitters to those frequencies is even easier with the AutoAssign function. Innovative features such as Gainforward allows users to adjust the gain directly from the receiver, while the Real Time Spectrum Analyser functionality helps spot potential RF interference. The A20-TX transmitter on the other hand features a high-quality fully-balanced pre-amp ported from the 8-Series for pristine audio quality, while also offering support for a wide range of microphones, extensive power options as well as a built-in 32-bit float, 48 kHz recorder.
