Creamsource LNX Introduced – New Rigging System for Vortex LED Lights Series

During Cine Gear 2022, Creamsource introduced a new rigging system for its Vortex series LED fixtures: the LNX. The LNX system consists of pins and purpose-built clamps which allow you to mount multiple lights together and easily attach them to standard speed rails. Let’s take a closer look at these new accessories!

The Creamsource Vortex8 (650W) was introduced in July 2020, and its little brother, the Vortex4 (325W), was released at the end of 2021.

After a recent CreamOS 2.0 firmware update, the company is back during Cine Gear 2022 with the Creamsource LNX rigging system to speed up your workflow and creative options.

Creamsource Vortex series features

If you’re new to the Vortex8 and Vortex4 RGBW LED panels, let’s take a quick look at these high-end fixtures. The Creamsource Vortex series are splashproof, made to survive an earthquake, and have all the features you might ask an LED light for, including:

  • In CCT mode, they can go from 2.200K to 15.000K.
  • Very high CRI/TLCI photometric values.
  • Hue/Saturation/Intensity, X/Y, RGBW, and gels modes. Also, there are plenty of built-in effects.
  • Bluetooth/WiFi/DMX/LumenRadio/Ethernet connectivity.
  • Independently controllable LED zones.

You can’t go wrong with Creamsource Vortex LED lights, but they come at a price: $5,499 for the Vortex8 and $2,799 for the Vortex4. So you got it, they’re primarily rental units, but they get the job done.

Creamsource LNX features

During Cine Gear 2022, we had the chance to take a first look at the new Creamsource LNX accessories for Vortex series fixtures. This unique ecosystem of accessories is compatible with the Vortex4 and Vortex8 LED lights, but all current Vortex8 owners will need to send their lights to an authorized dealer to receive a free hardware upgrade.

The base of the Creamsource LNX system are pins that quickly attach at the four corners of the lights.

Then, you can connect a one/two/four-way plate which allows you to rig multiple Vortex lights together, perfectly aligned. The array of light you can build goes from two to pretty much unlimited, as long as you can lift the final rig.

Also, the Creamsource LNX plates come with speed rail clamps which allow you to attach your final rig to a studio light grid.
