The NAB 2012 Product Lineup – What to See at the Tiffen Booth

NAB press and attendees are invited to stop by the Tiffen booth (C8818) for a look at the newest technology gear and products from the following Tiffen brands:

Steadicam: Considered the de facto standard for camera stabilizers by professional broadcasters and motion picture artists, Tiffen will exhibit the full line of professional video and film Steadicam solutions as well as the highly popular hand-held Merlin product.

Lowel-Light: Lowel-Light will be showcasing four fixtures of the recently released Lowel Prime™ LED lighting system. Lowel Prime™ LEDs are brighter than many similarly sized production LEDs, with a wider, more usable 50-degree beam angle. Lowel Prime LEDs are fully DMX addressable and dimmable, and available in dedicated high CRI Daylight and Tungsten color models.

Tiffen Optical Filters: Tiffen filters are manufactured using the company’s award-winning ColorCore™ technology, which enables Tiffen to control the color and density of its filters with greater accuracy than typical dyed-in-the-mass filters.

Davis & Sanford Tripods: Tiffen will be unveiling a new line of Davis & Sanford tripods at NAB 2012. Designed for the professional shooter, the new Davis & Sanford Tripod Pro Elite Series incorporate the same high-quality engineering with outstanding price-performance value.
