Brightline LED VideoPlus Lighting Fixture Redesigned, Improves Performance
Bridgeville, Penn. – Brightline, a leading manufacturer of energy efficient lighting systems, today announced a redesign of its popular LED VideoPlus flush-mounted linear fixture. Ideal for newsrooms, corporate conference rooms, government council chambers, and multimedia classrooms, the second generation brings reduced costs, improved energy efficiency, and easier installation to the multi-task light.
The new VideoPlus features innovative LED technology that matches the light quality of the previous model. While the new LED technology allows for a significant price drop for customers, it also reduces the weight of the fixture, making it easier to install. Plus, lower power requirements mean the VideoPlus can also be powered via PoE, which reduces the cost of installation and allows for IP control.
Available in two-foot and four-foot lengths, the VideoPlus can be sized to fit small and large spaces. It includes up to two crossing video light channels and one task light channel in a six-inch aperture, and is designed for drywall, acoustical lay-in, or custom ceilings.
“This is our first major redesign of the LED VideoPlus since we introduced it back in 2015,” said Kathy Katz, Brightline managing partner. “Installers will appreciate the lighter weight and expanded power and control options, including PoE. It’s a great choice for conference rooms and lecture halls. For broadcasters, the VideoPlus is a smart way to light your newsroom – it offers comfortable task lighting for everyday activities, as well as broadcast-quality video lighting for newsroom stand-ups and other on-air content.”
Brightline will demo the updated LED VideoPlus at the 2020 NAB Show (Booth C7812) in April in Las Vegas, Nev. The two-foot version is now shipping, and the four-foot version will be available in Q2 2020.

Brightline and Logitech Partner to Improve Videoconferencing Lighting
We’ve all been there: the lighting when we are doing videoconferencing leaves something to be desired. Now, Brightline, a leading manufacturer of energy efficient lighting systems, announced it has joined the Logitech Collaboration Program. The partnership combines Brightline professional LED lighting solutions with Logitech Room Solutions for Zoom Rooms, Microsoft Teams Rooms, and Google Meet.
The partnership will streamline and enhance the customer experience with options tailored for videoconferencing solutions. Initial Brightline products included in the program are the cMe2 huddle room light and Flex-T ceiling-mounted fixtures. Brightline also plans to include its i-Series desktop fixture for interpersonal collaboration, which is being redesigned to address the growing demand of at-home videoconferencing.
“Businesses have embraced videoconferencing more than ever due to continuing to shelter in place, and many of them have realized employees are unprepared for presenting a professional appearance on video,” said Sudeep Trivedi, head of global alliance and go-to-market, Logitech Video Collaboration. “Quality lighting is the foundation for creating an excellent on-screen image. Working with Brightline will make it easier for our customers to have a complete videoconferencing solution with professional results.”
“Partnering with Logitech helps Brightline’s clients to optimize their workplace designs for videoconferencing solutions,” said Kathy Katz, Brightline managing partner. “It also simplifies the specifying process and ensures proper integration for easy setup and use. We are excited to be partnering with Logitech to improve professional videoconferencing in huddle rooms, conference rooms, and in the rapidly-expanding home-based office market.”
