GAMBOX is a foldable modular diffusion unit with an internal pipe that allows the mounting of multiple light sources. Diffusion slots in both the front and center accommodate cosmetic gel and diffusion.
The Diffusion box that solves problems!
Eliminates boom shadows
Creative freedom -
Closer booms means better sound
Less heat for a higher light level
Less equipment saves time and money
Makes "actor's marks" less critical
No refocus as blocking changes
Use inexpensive lights - such as PAR 64's
A single lamp burnout is not critical
Use in series or individually
Hang from single or multiple points
As used on ABC's sitcom "The Hughleys"
within a 28 foot action area or more!
The GAMBOX design defies the
inverse square law, solving the
problem of severe light fall off
as you move away from the source.
What the GAMBOX does!
Soft lights are often used to eliminate shadows.
However, they have one great deficiency: as the
distance from the soft light grows, the light fall
off is extreme. When light levels in the up stage
production areas are inadequate, additional lighting
equipment must be added. These added lights cause
problems particularly for microphones and booms.
GAMBOX was designed to solve this problem, enabling
you to have a more even light level from front to back.
GAMBOX helps eliminate additional lighting equipment
and the boom shadow problems that they create in the
"...It saved me at least $5000 a week." Michael Petok, Emmy winning Producer - Dave's World, Style & Substance
"The cleanest system I've observed for lighting a sit-com. I can see a lot of other uses - news, talk shows and game shows as well." Jim Moody, Lighting Designer, Wheel of Fortune
"I've never had better sound on a sit-com. I can get boom mics 3 feet closer with no boom shadows." Klaus Landsberg, 9 Emmy winning sound mixer
"Because of the position of the GAMBOXES, the boom arms are virtually unrestricted. There is no waiting for the lighting adjustments." Laurie Seligman, Boom Operator 19 years
"The result is an extremely consistent high quality picture that makes Telecine an easier process." Andy Lichstein, Telecine Colorist, Complete Post
GAMBOX works for daylight, sunset, night shots and more.
Notice the even lighting on a variety of skin
tones and actor positions from foreground to background.

The basis of GAMBOX theory is that a soft projected
front light is flattering to actors and eliminates
boom shadows. All action areas are lit so new blocking
does not call for refocus. Since multiple sources are
used for key, there is no waiting to change burnouts.
GAMBOX theory is a fast, cost-effective lighting method
that looks great!
