An interview from the 2022 NAB Show in Las Vegas with Spencer Newbury of Creamsource. Australia-based Creamsource has been an industry pioneer since 2005 (est. as Outsight), designing and building innovative lighting solutions that power productions worldwide. By partnering with some of the best cinematographers, gaffers and rental companies in the industry, Creamsource leverages expert feedback to provide purpose-built lighting products that address complicated production challenges head-on. Composed of seasoned industry veterans armed with firsthand knowledge of production environments, Creamsource blends an informed approach to design with a performance-oriented ethos to make its lighting solutions visible on film sets large and small.

In this interview Spencer talks with us about their new Vortex series, which features two distinct LED fixtures: the high-powered flagship 650W 2’x1’ Vortex8 and the 1’x1’ 325W Vortex4.

Each Vortex fixture boasts the same UI, favored by lighting artists for its modern design and ease of use, eliminating learning curves and downtime associated with rigging and programming multiple lights. All Vortex series lights work in concert with each other thanks to the shared platform, streamlining the entire lighting experience for users. This makes for easily expanded lighting configurations to bring artistic visions to life.

Underpinning the entire Vortex platform is Creamsource’s industry-leading firmware, CreamOS. With the latest CreamOS 2.0 architecture, Vortex8 and Vortex4 are equipped for creative expression with pre-programmed effects, color gels, multi-zone control, and the innovative FrameSync technology for enhanced effects and creative applications.
