Outsight focuses on quality build, rugged design for LED lights

With a focus on the little details, Outsight hopes to bring a higher level of durability and usability to the broadcast LED lighting market, counting clients such as CNN.

“If you go around the show you’ll see a lot of LED fixtures and a lot of them look like they’ll last about two weeks,” said Bill Russell of Outsight during our interview at the 2017 NAB Show. “The founders of the company really put a lot of care into not only the design but the construction of the units. If you have any background or feel for machining, these yolks are really elegant. And the yolk on the Micro there might even be considered overkill. But we want to build something to last.”

The Australian lighting manufacturer showcased its complete Creamsource line, including the recently announced Micro, which features a compact, ultra-portable form factor and a CRI/TLCI rating of greater than 90. The unit is also IP65 rated, built to withstand all weather conditions.

“When you’re shooting, you don’t want to have to worry about the lights in the environment and the weather conditions around you,” added Russell.

The units come in a variety of kits and work with standard battery mounts. The Micro will ship in May and is priced at $995 for the basic kit. Outsight is available through various dealers including Barbizon and 4Wall in the U.S.
