Luxli Viola is an RGBW LED Light with iOS App

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSSLuxli set up a backpack at NAB to show off Viola – a portable LED light that can change color and temperature. RGB + 3,400-10,000 white light. The Viola is Bluetooth connected, so you can put the light up into the rafters, then adjust at needed. Link lights together to go from a soft light to a Discotheque. The 5 inch Viola can be attached on a light and use a standard Panasonic battery. You can also add a diffuser for a softbox need. The Luxli can be used for remote video, in-studio lighting, or even if the electricity goes out in a storm.

Affordable Studio and Video LED Light Solution from Neewer

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSSI have been a fan of these camera lights for a few years now. I own several Neewer CN-126 and CN-160 camera lights. Some I use for my video shoots, a couple in the studio and one even illuminates me during my solo-acoustic shows. But did you know you can get add-ons that will turn this light into a great studio light? No batteries needed! The Neewer CN-160 Let’s start with this small camera LED light. The dimmable LED comes with 2 filters – diffusion and 3200K light for a warmer look. Take the filters off and you have 5700k lights to brighten any situation. The CN-160 LED can throw over 600 Lumens up to 20 feet. In my 10-12 foot studio (a.k.a. the second bedroom), two of these lights would be more than enough. I am adding a third to...

Rotolight RL48 – 140 Degrees of Light with Filters – NAB 2014

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSSSince I create “Gun and Run” interviews, I have no time to figure out if the lighting is perfect. Sometimes it comes back to bite me – all for the 3 minute video at trade shows. I stopped by Rotolight to find out about not only their portable solutions but also their production studio lighting. I walked away with a new found knowledge and what the RL48 Rotolight can do for me. I found out that most lights with a dimmer have to include an anti-flicker option. If the circuitry is bad then you could get a bad result in video. The extra circuitry can also take up more battery life to dim your light. Rotolight is a simple light that takes only 3 batteries and has one switch – on and off. Inside the Rotolight is a series of filters...

10 Things I Learned From @Blogworld Critique a Podcast Panel

10 Things I Learned From @Blogworld Critique a Podcast Panel

Last week I held a great panel of content creators who critiqued 4 shows during BlogWorld & New Media Expo. The panel – consisting of Steve Garfield, Rob Greenlee, Mike Cioffi and Mignon Fogerty – critiqued the good and bad. The idea was to improve not only those shows, but also make people think about their own podcasts. The panel made some great observations. It definitely made me think about my shows. I broke it down to 10 areas of focus. I can then work on each area within the next few weeks and improve my podcasts. In turn, people will interact. Here are the 10 things you might want to also consider to better your show: Audio is Important I have done this, too. You bust your butt getting the video done. You are running out of time, but the audio is not that great. You work...

Studio Test 1 – The Green Screen

Studio Test 1 – The Green Screen

I have been working hard in getting the new studio up and running. Today was the first day I could really test it. Therefore, with Logitech 9000 webcam in hand, I put together the first video. I brought it upstairs and tested out the new video editing equipment. Amazingly, it really handled the bad light to make the green screen work. I can’t wait to actually put in real lighting. At first I thought of not posting this video, but ya know…. I worked hard at this. Therefore, it went up on TVazine. Here is the first test video down in the Cave – er I mean Studio.
