This year, LED lighting specialist brands Nanlux, Nanlite and Nanlink celebrate 30 years of designing and manufacturing professional lighting equipment and technology for the film, television, and photographic industries.
Established as NanGuang Photo and Video Systems by Lin BiGuang in 1992, the company fast established itself as an innovator in the design and fabrication of technologically advanced LED systems. As the business evolved, the introduction of new brands, such as Nanlux and Nanlite, saw the company gain recognition as a market-leading force in the development of an effective and well-respected range of products.
“We are extremely proud of our company’s history,” said Managing Director Nancy Zheng of the landmark anniversary. “Since the very beginning, our team has worked hard to build what has become an internationally recognized brand. As we celebrate our 30th anniversary, we are delighted to share our achievements with the customers and users around the world, whose talents and creativity have contributed so much to the success”.
From modest beginnings, the business has grown to encompass a number of international bases, backed by an extensive distributor network, with representatives in all major markets. Today, the company employs over 900 staff at a state-of-the-art design and manufacturing facility and turns out more than one million products per year. The Nanlux and Nanlite brands have established themselves as leaders in the field of LED innovation, with a diverse range of lighting fixtures and accessories now sold in over 85 countries.
“Over the past three decades we have worked together, to create a brand [that] can compete on a world stage. We are delighted to have formed a global family, where we are able to, listen, understand and share ideas, as we develop products [that] directly support the creativity of our customers,” said Zheng. It’s this commitment to understanding customer needs that has allowed the company to develop an award-winning product range that has gained a number of international accolades for best lighting.
“To our wonderful extended family at NanGuang Photo&Video Systems: Congratulations on 30 years in business,” Mac Group President Jan Lederman said in a statement. We have had many wonderful partners through our 34 years in business, but there is something truly special about our relationship with you. It is one thing that we respect the quality and thoughtfulness of your exceptional products and the attentiveness of the customer care you provide, but on top of that, you are incredible people and we are honored to be your partner and wish you all the continued success in the world. You truly deserve it.”
“We are honored and proud to be partners with Nanguang. We are in constant pursuit of bettering our knowledge. Nanguang has been a great help for Focus Nordic in achieving this. We thank Nanguang for their support over the years. Happy anniversary,” added Odd Bergstø, Product Manager at Focus Nordic AB.
Among the product releases created by the company’s in-house technical team to coincide with the 30th anniversary is the new Pavo Tube II with 15X, 30X, and 60X fixtures — a range of highly versatile, feature-packed RGBWW LED tube lights with studio-quality output. The Pavo Tubes join the recently launched Evoke 1200, a super flexible fixture that delivers stunning levels of illumination, whether used as a powerful Fresnel, controllable spotlight, or a natural feeling soft source. Available in both 5600K and Tungsten 3200K variants, the Evoke outperforms almost any comparable luminaire.
Both the Evoke and the Pavo Tube II line up alongside the company’s hugely successful Dyno Series of high output, yet beautifully soft, panel lights. Released just over a year ago, the Dyno Series has already established itself as a global success, both in the studio and on location.
As part of the company’s 30th-anniversary celebrations, representatives will be touring the product range and attending key industry events across the globe, including the British Society of Cinematographers Expo in London, Showbiz Expo in Los Angeles, IBC in Amsterdam, and NAB in Las Vegas.
“Our first 30 years have, of course, been important, but we now look to the future and technological advancements and exciting new products, which we will be sharing very soon. However, it’s our people and our customers who remain at the forefront of everything we do. I am immensely grateful for the support over the past three decades and am very much looking forward to our future together,” concluded Zheng. For more about Nanlux, Nanlite and Nanlink, click here.
