We have been manufacturing in the UK since 1882 See our History here, making us the oldest entertainment lighting company in the world. Over that time we have grown and changed into the global brand you know today. Having been around for 136 years, our list of credits is extensive but in recent years, you will find our products in use around the world in TV studios of all sizes and for major motion picture productions.

While our past is important to us, it is our present and future that is key.  We have strong a catalogue of excellent products with more in development. Arguably LED has become the future of broadcast lighting. We currently have two models to meet this demand. Our PB80 is an LED Redhead which offers a compact yet powerful source with excellent TCLI and CRI.


In 2016 we launched our outstanding Highlight LED range. Using remote phosphor technology we are able to provide an LED unit with excellent and consistent output. These units are going from strength to strength with each year that passes and have been used in studios far and wide.


We do still manufacture and supply tungsten and fluorescent units alongside our LED products. See the product pages of our website for more details.
