Zylight to distribute NanGuang and Fxlion Products

Zylight, a manufacturer of portable LED lighting, has partnered with Chimera Lighting to manufacture and distribute Active Diffusion, Zylight’s electronic diffusion technology.

Zylight will also distribute NanGuang’s compact LED Fresnels and soft panel lights, as well as FXLION’s battery and charger product lines throughout North and South America.

“Active Diffusion is very useful to film, video, and photography lighting professionals. Being able to remotely and infinitely adjust your diffusion saves time and labor,” said Bob Winters, president of Chimera. “We are excited to partner with Zylight to bring this exciting and innovative diffusion technology to customers worldwide.”

Active Diffusion is an electronically controlled diffusion filter. Constructed with a flexible LCD screen and housed in a gel frame or coupled with a Chimera soft box, an Active Diffusion filter can produce different layers of diffusion. The filter is instantly adjusted with a handheld controller, so there is no need to change gels to create the desired diffusion effect. Active Diffusion works with any kind of cool light, including LED or fluorescent fixtures.

“We chose Chimera as a partner because they can custom manufacture Active Diffusion in the shapes and sizes required by customers around the world,” Joe Arnao, president of Zylight. “We’re also proud to add Nanguang and FXLION to the growing list of products we distribute throughout North and South America.”
