New versatile, affordable fixture extends Cineo’s line of portable Remote Phosphor lighting tools

Cineo MATCHBOX Light

Cineo Lighting have introduced the Cineo Matchbox, the latest in versatile, portable Remote Phosphor lighting for motion picture and television production. At 3.25″ x 5.25″ x 1.5″ and 15 oz, the Matchbox outputs a stunning amount of high-quality light at a variety of accurate interchangeable color temperatures. A wide range of input power allows Matchbox to run on any input voltage from 6-26 VDC as well as AC power with the included adapter.

The Matchbox features an on-board 0-100% flicker-free dimmer that can work in conjunction with upstream DMX or remote dimmers. Color temperature is controlled by the interchangeable Remote Phosphor panels at the front of the fixture, available at 2700K, 3200K, 4300K, and 5600K. The color quality of Matchbox perfectly matches all other Cineo soft lights, with CRI ratings of 92-98, depending on color temperature. The bottom of the fixture includes a standard 1/4″x20 tap, allowing for limitless mounting options. Ruggedly built from anodized aluminum, these small sources can easily withstand the most demanding applications in both the field and the studio.

“Matchbox represents Cineo’s commitment to providing versatile, affordable production light sources with the premium quality Cineo is known for,” said Richard Pierceall, CEO. “The benefits of Remote Phosphor technology are now within the budget of every photographer.”

The basic Matchbox kit retails for $495.00 and includes the light fixture, a 120-240 VAC adapter, 3200K and 5600K Remote Phosphor panels, and a 6 ft. power extension cable. A variety of light control accessories and power options are available.

Cineo will debut the Matchbox at the 2015 NAB Show. Matchbox will be available from authorized Cineo Lighting resellers worldwide in early April.
