(Tartu, Estonia--April 3, 2017) At NAB 2017, Kinotehnik, Northern European manufacturer of innovative cinematography and lighting accessories, will introduce Practilite 604, the latest addition to its popular line of “smart” Fresnel lights.

Practilite is the world’s smallest, bi-color, variable beam LED light and includes smart control that allows brightness and color temperature adjustments to be made via a simple smartphone app. Lending further versatility to the series, Practilite 604 features a traditional balanced mounting fixture with full-size, 5-pin XLR DMX sockets alongside conventional DC input. DMX connectivity enables all conventional controls, including smooth dimming action from 0 to 100%.

Kinotehnik will also introduce SmartSync connectivity, a new protocol that allows multiple Practilite units to be connected in a daisy chain of DMX cables. In this way, a group of fixtures can be synchronously controlled via a single, connected Practilite without a DMX board. As many as six groups of lights—for a total of 90 fixtures—can be controlled through a single smartphone app.

“Practilite 604 is an ideal choice for professionals seeking a compact yet powerful Fresnel, as well as reliability, easy set-up, and hassle-free operation,” says Kinotehnik founder Tõnis Liivamägi. “We keep pushing the boundaries for the modern, smart light.”

Practilite 604 and other Kinotehnik products can be seen at the Manios Digital booth, Central Hall, C9521. NAB 2017 is April 24-27 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.

Practilite 604 pricing and availability will be announced at the show.
