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”.
The acclaimed Titan LED engine uses a combination of RGB plus mint and amber LEDs to generate a beautiful array of colours across the whole spectrum including an outstanding range of CT whites.
Other Titan features loved and appreciated by filmmaking and broadcast communities include being optimized for ultra-high TLCI, very high CRI and peak brightness.
These awards were first presented by the BSC in 1951 and renamed in 1976 in honour of the legendary Bert Easey, head of the Camera Department at Denham and Pinewood Studios and integral to the formation of the Society. The awards are a gift from the BSC Board and only given to exceptional individuals or companies making outstanding contributions in terms of endeavour or equipment, all of which made this an even more special occasion for Astera.
