Mike Zinman has released another something awesome – an app for iPhone that finds gear for rent or purchase, wherever you are. Meet Genielux:
From the ZinmanCo press release:
LONG BEACH, CA – The Zinman Company, a technology leader in iPhone applications for the entertainment industry, announces the worldwide launch of GENIELUX™. GENIELUX allows users to quickly and efficiently search the inventory of rental and sales companies around the world by type of equipment, location, and distance from the user.
The initial launch will allow vendors such as production companies, rental or hire houses, or individuals with rental or sales inventory to list their gear in the worldwide database. The second phase in February 2010 will launch the searchable database and the free iPhone application. The database will include lighting, control, audio, video, rigging, special effects, and more. For a limited time, new listings will be upgraded to a Featured Listing for no extra charge.
“GENIELUX is the ideal tool to quickly locate any piece of gear in the world, whether it’s lighting, control, audio, video, or even rigging or special effects,” said Michael Zinman, President and CTO of The Zinman Co. “This application saves critical time in the production process and when the iPhone app is launched it will allow you instant access anywhere your phone works.”
The application is free to users. Equipment listings are $2 per month for a standard listing and $12 per month for a featured listing. A single listing can include an unlimited amount of gear. All listings purchased before February 1 will be upgraded to a Featured Listing for no extra charge. For more information, visit www.genielux.com.
Mike has released the actual iPhone app today – people, if you have a product to rent or sell in the lighting world, pay the two bucks and get your name in Genielux! Get the Genielux app, FREE, here.
