DoPchoice Will Debut Latest Light Control Solutions at NAB 2023, Booth #C4945


DoPchoice will debut its latest light control solutions for several new lights at NAB 2023. Among the highlights are a new universal Snapbox® designed to fit a variety of flat panel lights, as well as light sculpting tools for Sumomax and Kelvin Epos.

As flat panel lights become increasingly integrated into production, the need has grown for more tools to fit them. DoPchoice’s solution is a universal Snapbox that fits Kino Flo Freestyle Air, Air Mini and Air Maxi, Litegear LiteMat1, 2L and 4, and Exalux Ledzep 1×4 and 2×4 panels.

DoPchoice Snapboxes for Kelvin Enos

DoPchoice’s patented self-tightening Snap Technology™ allows for quick deployment into the Snapbox’s rectangular shape. The smooth diffusion box mounts over the flat light panel’s frame and attaches to the fixture’s hook and loop fastening to offer light softening and diffusion options without slowing down the pace of production. An included Half Grid and Magic Cloth diffusion stretches across the face. For added directional control, DoPchoice offers the Snapgrid® which attaches via hook-and-loop to the front of the Snapbox. The Snapbox weighs just 2.2 pounds (one kilogram) and measures 42.9 x 24.2 x 4.5 inches / 109 x 61.5 x 11.5 cm installed. When it’s time to put the accessory away, it folds down into its compact black carry bag.

The long-awaited Sumomax is delivering, so DoPchoice has a family of tools ready. The new Sumomax Kit includes a Snapbag® that straps directly on Sumomax’s hexagonal housing creating a circular 35.4in/90cm diagonal front. The kit also features a reflector, target, and skirt to modify spread and diffusion. Also available is a dome or “pancake lantern” featuring “Magic Cloth” with easy elastic fit that deploys from its own black bag. And coming soon is a new adapter for the Rabbit Ears mount which opens the world of 3′, 5′, 7′ Octas and Lanterns and the Medium Snapbag.

To accessorize the Kelvin Epos with its Bowens mount, DoPchoice’s Rabbit-Rounder® adapter quickly mounts an assortment of Snapbags, including DoPchoice’s trademark rectangular Snapbags in medium and small sizes, 3’ and 5’ Octas, and Medium and Large Domes (Lanterns). For more directional light there are also Snapgrids® which swiftly affix to the front of round and rectangular Snapbags (not Domes) for even more control.

Snapbags, Snapboxes, Snapgrids and Rabbit Rounders are manufactured by DoPchoice and TRP Worldwide and are available through authorized dealers. Visit

Vicon Introduces Mobile Mocap at SIGGRAPH

Motion capture systems developer Vicon is previewing a futuristic new “Mobile Mocap” technology at SIGGRAPH 2011 in Vancouver. Moving mocap out of the lab and into the field, Vicon's Mobile Mocap system taps several new technologies, many years in the making. At the heart of Mobile Mocap is a very small lipstick-sized camera that enables less obtrusive, more accurate facial animation data. The new cameras capture 720p (1280X720) footage at 60 frames per second. In addition, a powerful processing unit synchronizes, stores, and wirelessly transmits the data, all in a tiny wearable design.
