From Westcott:
 
NEW Flex LED light panels
The Flex lighting system is at the cutting­edge of LED light technology. Pliable, weather­resistant and dimmable the Flex LED panels produce an outstanding, consistent and flicker­free light that is ideal for filmmakers and photographers. Their lightweight and 1/4” thin moldable framework allows you to shape the light in unique ways, delivering up to a 360-degree spread of light. Flex LED panels can also be paired with the Scrim Jim Cine modular frame system to provide a powerful, adaptable and professional lighting set­up for any situation. Available in Daylight (5600K) and Bi­Colour (2800K ­ 6000K) options, and in a range of sizes from 10”x3” to 2’ x2’, Westcott has the widest range of sizes. As the Flex LED light panels can be rolled or folded they are highly portable for easy and lightweight travel.
 
NEW Scrim Jim Cine System
Scrim Jim Cine is an ultralight modular frame system that allows you to shape, block and modify light with more control than ever before. The anodised aluminium framework can be easily assembled mounted and skinned to light any situation. The wide variety of self­locking connecting pieces allows for any number of frame configurations such as booklights, diffusion boxes, floppy cutters and more and the built­in 3/8­16 thread makes mounting the frames quick and easy. Combined with a large variety of Diffusion and Grid cloths and a range of bounce fabrics, plus compatibility with the Westcott Flex LED Panel range, nothing gives you more control over your lighting than the Scrim Jim Cine modular system.
 
Westcott App for Ice Light 2
Remotely control your Ice Light 2 with the new Westcott App. Utilising the integrated Bluetooth capability of the Ice Light 2, you can connect your iOS device to up to 10 individual Ice Lights and control them all via the app. You can assign each of your lights its own custom name and swipe easily between them to adjust their individual brightness, as well as monitor battery life, providing easy wireless light control for your shoots.

The Westcott Ice Light 2 LED light is an enhanced version of its predecessor built on the wish lists of photographers in the field. Ice Light 2 is engineered with patented new LED technology offering 50% brighter output than the original Ice Light and 1,740 lumens of beautiful daylight-balanced light while maintaining a compact housing. Weighing a mere 20 ounces, the Ice Light 2 can be easily operated with one hand, giving photographers and filmmakers the ability to simultaneously shoot and light their subjects.
 
Unlike traditional LED panels, the Ice Light has a built-in diffuser that is custom-designed to protect the LEDs and provide a vast 73° beam angle. This casts a large spread of incredibly soft quality light.
 
The Ice Light 2`s LEDs feature the advantages of high efficiency and colour purity with low energy consumption and long lifetime. Daylight-balanced at 5500K and rated for 50,000 hours with a stunning Colour Rendering Index (CRI) of 96 meaning the subject will be presented in near perfect light also the Ice Light 2 provides flicker-free output and stable light consistency perfect for photographers and videographers alike.
 
A removable Lithium-ion battery is yet another Ice Light 2 refinement. A 2.5-hour charge gives you 60+ minutes of runtime with the convenience of being able to charge a backup battery outside the unit. Affordable replacement batteries are available for prolonged use.
 
The Redesigned Handle offers a dedicated on/off power slider with an 18-step flicker-free range and a light output memory which remembers your last power setting between uses. Battery indicator displays the current battery level using illuminated blue lights. Both ends of the Ice Light 2 include 1/4"-20 thread`s to mount to a light stand, tilter bracket or tripod.
 
Ice Light 2 is designed for the future with built-in Bluetooth with USB connectivity that will allow use with smart device apps and is compatible with all existing accessories including the original Ice Light barn doors, tungsten gels, two-way connectors, and more.

From JP Distribution:
 
08-27-2013 - JP Distribution is excited to announce the introduction of the New SkyLux by Westcott. The first daylight-balanced Studio LED with a CRI Rating of 94+ that allows photographers to utilise their favourite modifiers with the addition of a single Bowens Mount Speedring.
 
The SkyLux is a beautiful full-colour spectrum of light, housed in a high-quality compact all-metal unit, which embodies a unique design with a flat front panel to protect the LED light source (meaning, there’s no protruding bulb or globe to shatter). The durable construction allows photographers to utilise their largest modifiers, like the Westcott 7’ Octabank. The Bowens S-Type mount allows for the usage of softboxes, umbrellas, snoots, barn doors and gels. Unlike units utilising halogen or tungsten bulbs, the SkyLux gives off little heat with its unique LED design and has a lifespan of over 50,000 hours. Photographers will find an internal fan to keep the unit cool with virtually zero sound while in operation. The quiet fan and flicker free LED technology is a perfect setup for videographers.
 
Features Include:

  • Dimmable daylight-balanced LED for motion and still capture
  • Pristine 5600K continuous output
  • Cutting-edge 94CRI LED technology
  • Quiet operation essential for video
  • Lightweight, solid metal housing
  • Diffused front emits shadow-free output
  • Built-in tilter bracket and umbrella mount
  • Attaches virtually any light modifier
  • Regulated ballast for flicker-free output
  • Muliti-voltage for international use
