Press release date: March 7, 2012

Groundbreaking footage that reveals never before seen habits and behaviors of North American big cats premiered last December on National Geographic's Big Cat week and was made possible in part by the inclusion of high power LED light bars from Larson Electronics' during night filming. New footage currently being gathered promises similar spectacular results and will include additional night scenes illuminated with Magnalight's extreme series of LED lighting equipment.

Premiering last December during National Geographic's "Big Cat Week", American Cougar documented the lives and habits of cougars in the Rocky Mountains and captured amazing and in some cases entirely unique footage as researchers worked to gather data and information under demanding and often hazardous conditions. Unusual and often never seen before night footage of these elusive animal's activities was made possible in large part by the inclusion of cutting edge LED lighting technology provided by [Magnalight LEDP3W-6X2 LED light bars __title__ Magnalight LEDP3W-6X2 LED light bars]. The remote and often hazardous conditions encountered by researchers during filming included rain, freezing temperatures, snow, and rugged terrain that put the researchers and their equipment to the test. Magnalight's heavy duty series of [LED light bars __title__ LED light bars] were a natural choice for these conditions due to their high light quality and lumen output as well as their extremely rugged design and ability to operate from portable power sources for extended periods without depleting power sources at an extreme rate. During filming of this documentary researchers set up remote cameras and required lighting that could be counted on to perform without close supervision.

Magnalight LEDs are an ideal choice for such applications due to their "instant-on" capability, high durability, extreme lumen output, and ability to run for extended periods on portable power sources without draining them at an extremely fast rate. In unique applications such as the filming of highly elusive and dangerous animals such as North American Big Cats, researchers often will get only a single opportunity to capture a once in a life time footage, and if equipment fails to perform, that opportunity is forever lost. By including these [heavy duty LED lights __title__ heavy duty LED lights], researchers reduced their chances of failure and were able to illuminate scenes that up until now had remained hidden from human observers. With the spectacular success of Big Cat Week and the American Cougar documentary established, further footage has been slated for production and researchers have again turned to Magnalight LED lighting equipment to guarantee further success in their efforts to capture new and amazing footage of these incredible animals.

"To have our lights be a part of such groundbreaking footage makes us extremely proud," said Rob Bresnahan with Larson Electronics' "Our lights are used in so many different ways to help illuminate people's lives; a National Geographic production is not an everyday occurrence. Our LED light bars are made rugged and dependable to catch all those breath taking shots captured by the National Geographic crew."
