Band Pro Open House: DRACAST

One of the best things about attending the BandPro event, besides the fact they had R2 units on hand, was mixing it up and learning about some new products that I’ve previously overlooked. Because BandPro is known mostly as a full service solution serving high end productions, you might think that everything there would be crazy expensive.

However, DRACAST’s presence at the open house dispelled that myth. If you’re not familiar, DRACAST is a manufacturer of cost effective, LED lighting solutions for video production. In this video, DRACAST’s marketing manager, John Armendariz, talks about just some of their products which range from camera top lights to 1×1 studio lights.
Here’s more from the DRACAST website:
Dracast LED Lights have the highest Color Rendering Index (CRI) in the industry. The higher the CRI, the better the quality your pictures will be. Dracast High CRI LED Lights guarantee consistent color temperature and industry-leading brightness. Dracast LED Lights are built with patent-pending energy and heat distribution technologies for increased lifespan.
