LiteGear Inc., designers and builders of LED lighting products for professionals in the Cinema, TV, and HD Video industries, made its first Pledge-a-Product donation to Behind the Scenes on the show floor at LDI 2017. Pioneers behind the popularization of flexible LED lighting for use in Cinema and TV lighting applications, LiteGear presented a check for $7750 representing a percentage of the profits from sales of their new flagship fixtures, LiteMat+ Plus, to support the charity.
The LiteMat+ is designed to offer soft yet controllable light for location or studio work. Available in 6 sizes, these bi-color fixtures are made of a composite of polypropylene and sheet aluminum making LiteMat+ one of the thinnest and lightest luminaires in its category.

Upon presenting the check, LiteGear CEO, Al DeMayo, stated “We are very proud to be part of such a great charity. The support for entertainment industry members is an admirable cause that LiteGear can really get behind.”
Tobin Neis of the BTS Foundation Board of Directors commented, “Behind the Scenes is thrilled to have LiteGear as a part of our Pledge-a-Product program and for their first year they and their customers have made a wonderful contribution that will go far to help entertainment technicians in times of crisis.”
The Behind the Scenes charity provides entertainment technology professionals who are seriously ill or injured with grants that may be used for basic living and medical expenses. For more information about Behind the Scenes, to donate, or to apply for a grant, visit www.behindthescenescharity.org.
