Production Resource Group Acquires Paskal Lighting


New York-based Production Resource Group announced that it has acquired Paskal Lighting, a U.S.-based lighting, grip and expendables company.

Founded in 1988, Paskal Lighting has served the motion picture and television industries for over 20 years, with one of the largest inventories of lighting and grip equipment, as well as a fleet of production vehicles capable of accommodating any size production throughout the U.S.

Paskal Lighting will operate under its own brand name, as a full member company of the PRG group, with Evan Green continuing in his role as president. “Paskal will continue to service our long-time loyal customers as we always have, and will now have the additional support and strength of the PRG organization to further achieve our goals,” said Green.

“The acquisition of Paskal Lighting brings us a like-minded company dedicated to customer service and solution-based technologies,” said Scott Hansen, president and CEO, corporate and trade show, TV and film, North America. “Paskal’s expert production teams will add significant depth to our film and television division. Both companies will continue to provide the cutting-edge technology and expert support that today’s filmmakers and broadcasters demand.”

“Evan and his staff at Paskal are highly regarded in the industry and we are very pleased to welcome them to the PRG family,” added Jere Harris, PRG chairman and CEO.

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.
