Satellite Lab is a creative studio and R&D laboratory based in New York City. We develop and use proprietary and patented in-camera imaging technology for filmmaking and photography.


We started Satellite Lab to develop our patented DynamicLight technology, enabling the use of moving light sources within the frozen world of high speed imaging.  

Since then, our research has led to the development of several new technologies.  

We are based in NY and LA.
