UK - Wireless LED lighting manufacturer Astera collected the 2022 Bert Easey Technical Award which was presented at a gala event organised by the British Society of Cinematographers (BSC) at the Grosvenor House Hotel, London, at the end of February.
Astera’s head of development, technical service, and product management Simon Canins collected the award, which was specifically for the company’s Titan LED engine, praised for its “mastery of LED technology, technical perfection and quality of light output”.
These awards were first presented by the BSC in 1951 and renamed in 1976 in honour of Bert Easey, head of the Camera Department at Denham and Pinewood Studios and integral to the formation of the Society.
“Of course, we are hugely honoured to receive this,” commented Astera sales director Sebastian Bückle. “All thanks go to our R ‘n’ D team for their ongoing hard work, imagination and foresight that ensures that we stay at the forefront of the fast-paced world of LED technology.”
Bert Easey Technical Award is added to a number of others recently received by Astera, with their Titan Tube product voted the 2021 Pro Moviemaker ‘Gear of The Year’ winner for ‘lighting innovation’. That same product has also picked up a PLASA Award for Innovation and a PLSN Gold Star Award.
