Product Details

We have created a complete kit including everything you need (minus the video camera and computer) to superimpose a subject onto video footage. Play onstage with a rock band or travel through space as with green screen technology, the possibilities are endless.

The magic behind this whole process is the green screen. Included in this kit is a 9' x 10' extra-large green screen backdrop that is constructed from a heavy-duty wrinkle-resistant matte fabric. You simply hang this background onto any wall or background system using the included pole pocket and grommets.

Although the uLites are designed to be compact in nature, they project an extremely broad area of light coverage. Basically, you can light a larger area with a smaller box. This is achieved by placing the removable diffusion front flush with the outer edge of the softbox and the narrow depth of the softbox. This simple 2-light setup will properly light up both your subject and the 9' x 10' included backdrop.The uLite is one of the first collapsible softboxes designed to give you the amazing light quality of a traditional style softbox, without the tedious set up. With one simple push, your softbox takes form and locks into place.

The included two 500-watt lamps offer plenty of power to make sure both your subject and green screen are properly lit. Lamps are rated for over 60 hours of use.

HitFilm 1 Standard transforms your movies, expanding your film-making toolkit to include multi-track video editing, advanced 2D and 3D compositing, extensive 'film look' filters and over 65 effects. 'HitFilm's unique drag-and-drop particle effects create shockwaves, explosions and fire in seconds, while the 3D gunfire brings your action sequences to life. This kit was published in the New York Times in December of 2011. The writer described it as "a steal" for the money.

Affordable Constant Lighting

Named a Hot One by Professional Photographer magazine in 2011, the uLite is a compact 500-watt constant light while still offering a low price tag. Unlike the competition, the uLite is constructed on a nylon-based polycarbonate with built-in tilter bracket, the uLite is extremely durable. This is the ideal light source when working in small or cramped spaces and is compatible with both incandescent and compact fluorescent bulbs.

Quick and Easy Setup

Unlike traditional softboxes, uLite modifiers literally set up in seconds. With just a simple push on the uLite softbox's center bracket, this dedicated modifier assembles and locks into place providing control over your uLite.

Certified for Safety

All uLites are approved by both the CE the CSA for safety. These light sources are tested on heat emittance, durability, and construction, ensuring their ability to be used around infants, children, pets, and products.

Continuous Output

Unlike strobe lights and flashes, constant light sources give photographers the ability to see the effects of their light placement before they shoot. This allows for the easiest, most precise photo and video shoot preparation. With the option to shoot still and motion, in either tungsten or fluorescent, uLites are the perfect light source for versatile enthusiasts and amateurs.

Choose Between Fluorescent and Tungsten

Tungsten is the most affordable lighting available and adds warmth to you photo and video creations, with a color temperature of about 3200 Kelvin. These bulbs last for approximately 60 hours of use. It is important to remember that tungsten lamps get warm, so always allow these bulbs to cool before handling. Daylight fluorescent bulbs stay cool to the touch with a color temperature similar to window-lighting, at about 5500 Kelvin. These bulbs are a little more costly, with a life of about 10,000 hours.
