Video Calling 4: Can You Identify These lights?

DVE-TelepresenceIt’s been a while since the matter of lighting for video calling has been an issue around here. In general I’ve been pretty happy with the Brightlines LED Conference lamp that I had described previously. I do wish that I had a second light to use at my desk. Thus far I’ve been moving the Brightlines lamp from place to place as needed.

Just a couple of days ago Dave Michels mentioned that he had acquired some of the Videssence ViewMe Lights. The lucky devil, his were acquired on-the-cheap via Ebay. It’s curious that the web site at www.ViewMeLight.com seems to be D.O.A. even though the product page is up at the Videssence website.

The real reason for this post is that I’ve stumbled upon what appears  be a very nice set of lights for video use. They were shown in a demo video from DVE Telepresence. Sadly, I don’t know who makes these items. I grabbed a frame from the video in the hope that someone would be able tell me.

Looking at the video it seems that these throw a nice, soft fill light without being blinding. There’s also a larger set that they associate with their Huddle 70 system.

If you know about these lights please leave a comment. Of course, I could contact DVE Telepresense and ask them directly. I may yet do that, but I thought it worth trying to crowd-source the info first.

    Hi Michael, I believe DVE has used Engineered Lighting Products (www.elplighting.com) before. The lights in the Huddle Room might come from them.

    Thanks Dave. I’ll have to contact them. I’ve looked through their site but their product line only lists lighting that’s built-in to the room. The DVE lights look to be lamps that are not built-in.

      Hi Michael, did you ever identify the mystery lights?

      • Michael Graves

        No, I was never able to positively identify those lights. It’s a pity since they look ideal for the application.

        I was never able to pin that down. It’s a pity too since I’d like to buy some.

  • While I can’t help you identify exactly light fixtures from the picture, Lowell Ego 2 Light Set look somewhat similar (http://www.lowel.com/ego – see bottom left corner of the page).

      Those do appear similar in principle, if not in size. A pair of them might be a good solution in some cases.
