Whether you primarily shoot still images or videos (or you’re like me and do both), you no doubt understand the value of good lighting.
But sometimes good lighting is hard to come by. And quite often good lighting isn’t cheap.
That’s all changed, though…
The TEKE Reactive and Animated DMX Lighting System launched today on Kickstarter, and it is the affordable lighting system you’ve been looking for. More than that, it’s the customizable, wireless, easy-to-use lighting system you’ve been looking for!
Let’s dive into the details so you can better understand how TEKE can elevate the quality of your work.
TEKE Gives You Flexible Options
Need to add some background mood lighting for a portrait? Done!
Want to enhance a video with animated effects? No problem!
Are you shooting a music video and want the lighting to react to the beat? You got it!
TEKE has the technology to do all these things and more, all wrapped in two conveniently-sized packages (20-inch or 40-inch options).
Regardless of which size you select, you’ll get industry standard DMX Art-Net lighting just like what’s used in professional music videos, Hollywood movies, commercials, and stage performances. All in the palm of your hand, no less. Not bad, right?!
TEKE is Highly Customizable
It’s a bummer when you have to alter your creative vision because you don’t have the tools to do what you’ve envisioned. Instead, the tools you have in your camera bag should provide you the means to freely create images and videos as you’ve imagined them.
TEKE helps in this endeavor by giving you loads of customization options. You can create lighting setups, special effects, and color palettes to your heart’s desire and save them for use later on.
The companion smartphone app allows you to create and apply these effects, moods, and movie looks instantly and wirelessly. It truly doesn’t get any easier than that.
To expand your creative possibilities, browse the TEKE Library for dynamic lighting styles and animated effects that you can apply instantly. You can choose from presets like traffic, lightning, police lights, and many more. And no matter which one you choose, you simply tap your phone and the preset is activated.
TEKE Makes Creating Custom Lighting Easy
Aside from the obvious ease-of-use of being smartphone controlled, TEKE also gives you tools that allow you to create effects and color palettes quickly and easily.
For example, you can upload a video clip or a photograph as a reference for a color palette that you like. Just adjust the selection points and TEKE will automatically copy the shade, hue, temperature, and brightness of the selected pixels.
This means that in just a few seconds you can create a custom color palette - there’s no coding to be done or complicated software to use.
Likewise, TEKE is completely wireless and has a five-hour battery runtime (at 100% brightness!). You can even connect multiple lights together if need be and charge the lights while they’re in use.
Plus, TEKE’s DMX technology gives you improved signal strength and increased distance as compared to Bluetooth-controlled lights.
You have enough to worry about when it comes to creating compelling images and videos, so having something like TEKE, which is essentially a personal lighting assistant, can make all the difference in getting the shots you need quickly.
TEKE is For Amateurs and Pros Alike
Putting TEKE’s impressive list of features aside, what is perhaps most compelling about this light is that it offers professional-quality lighting without breaking your budget. This makes it an ideal addition to an amateur or professional’s kit.
These lights are bright, super sleek, hand-holdable, and easy to use. They offer 100 percent flicker-free dimming, have a 90+ CRI, and offer full spectrum addressable RGBW. Add in an adjustable color temperature of 2700-6500K, 700 or 1400 lumens of illumination, and a price that starts at less than $140 USD, and you have the makings of the next great lighting system for photographers and videographers!
