Vitec Group Acquires Quasar Science

The studio-lighting technicians who founded Quasar Science will continue to lead the team.

The Vitec Group has acquired LED lighting-technology provider Quasar Science.

The business will become part of Vitec’s Production Solutions Division alongside Litepanels, which was acquired by Vitec in 2008. 

Quasar Science was established in 2012 by four partners with extensive experience as studio-lighting technicians: Steven Strong, Evans Brown, Jay Yowler and Ray Gonzales. All four will remain with the company and continue to lead the team. 

“Quasar Science products are highly complementary to our Litepanels brand,” says Nicola Dal Toso, chief executive of Vitec Production Solutions. “There are growth opportunities to sell Quasar Science products through our global sales and distribution network and to utilize their expertise and network to grow our Litepanels business in the cine market. Quasar Science will also benefit from Vitec’s marketing, manufacturing and supply-chain capabilities.”

“As working professionals in cinematography, our intimate knowledge of filmmaking and content creation has enabled us to build Quasar Science into one of the industry’s most innovative brands,” says Quasar Science CEO Strong. “We've developed a unique range of versatile lighting solutions that are popular not only with lighting professionals, but also with artists of all kinds.”
