Cine Gear Expo 2011, Hollywood, Calif., (June 3, 2011)Multiquip, a diverse manufacturer and supplier of world class quality products and solutions, will unveil its SG 1400 studio generator and showcase its 2LT hydrogen fuel cell powered light tower and GloBug balloon light products at Cine Gear Expo 2011 in booth #201.

“Multiquip listened to our studio customers and designed a new and improved generator,” said Torsten Erbel, vice president product management, engineering and customer support for Multiquip. “We are excited to introduce a product that meets and exceeds the needs of entertainment professionals.”

The technically-advanced, yet operator-friendly, SG 1400 studio generator is designed specifically for the entertainment industry to reduce noise and increase reliability. The unit features a microprocessor-based digital controller providing a color graphic display and remote monitoring capability for a truly state-of-the-art control package. The updated controller can also remotely monitor and operate the generator through a simple wireless internet connection. A variable-speed hydraulic fan drive is used to allow the fan to spin slowly under smaller loads providing more efficient airflow while reducing noise. The Cummins™ engine is equipped with an isochronous electronic governor providing precise frequency control of ± 0.25 percent, as well as an all-aluminum housing to eliminate excess weight.

Multiquip is also debuting the new GS 6500 inverter studio cart. The product is suitable to provide portable power to production applications at low noise levels with excellent voltage stability.

Multiquip will also display its award winning H2LT light tower. Innovative by design, the H2LT is environmentally friendly, pollution-free, allowing it to be operated indoors and can be operated for up to 68 hours at a remarkable low noise level of only 43 decibels at 23 feet.  Because of the load following feature of the fuel cell, power is only produced as needed providing an unmatched fuel efficiency compared to conventional combustion engines running at full load at all times.

Additionally, the company is showcasing its GloBug - an innovative glare-free, 360 degree balloon light that is rugged in construction and lightweight for easy transport.  The GloBug offers a high output - up to 110,000 lumens - which creates greater illumination. It also uses Metal Halide light bulbs, which gives off a non-glare light and reduces shadows. Additionally, Metal Halide bulbs are able to withstand vibration and rugged jobsite conditions than halogen designs.
