To reiterate the benefits and Each IBC and NAB bring more startling pace of development advances, but it takes a keen in the lighting world, it’s worth a eye to differentiate between closer look at Bebob’s new LUXa development that delivers LED45, launched in September (albeit welcome) lower costs and 2011. It claims to be 40 per cent an advance that carries with it brighter with 25 per cent less power first and foremost greater creative consumption and a quarter smaller control. than its forerunner, the LUX-LED60. The new light gives 10,200 Lux at a distance of a metre at an angle of 30° and can be powered with a typical 100Wh camera battery for more than two hours. Released only three years earlier, the LUXLED40 and LED60 now lag well behind, with lower output, higher consumption and no advantage in size or weight. Moving to TV studio lights, Italy’s DeSisti DE LED is designed for back lighting, colour changing cyclorama and scenery lighting applications. Meanwhile, its Set Light DE LED system is made for use as a key, fill, backlight and also as stage wash and downlight. The light is a relative newcomer to the television studio industry. It claims that its innovative lighting Litepanels Sola12 offers total control over colour

Gekko’s kedo-sk fresnel

Photon Beard has preferred to concentrate on light emitting plasma technology with its Nova 270 focusable fresnel. From a very small point source, plasma can deliver full spectrum, flicker-free daylight, with only 270W giving the equivalent output of 400W of HMI, or a 2000W tungsten fresnel, making this a very low-energy alternative for location lighting. They are not alone. While also steering clear of LED, PRG’s new product takes a different approach. Its Foton employs remote phosphor: an internal light source strikes a crystal impregnated with rare earth elements which glows brightly. The large surface of the emitter allows for a precise mix of the phosphorescent material for accurate colours across the visible spectrum.

Bright LED Future

Despite the concerns, IBC 2011 saw a huge volume of LED product on show. Launches came from companies as diverse as Videssence with its ExceLED 225 –

Nine Light, designed to throw light in large film and TV production studios, to Gekko with its new kedosk, a single-colour fresnel-focused hard source luminaire. Other highlights included Dedo’s waterresistant, 24 Watt TECPRO Felloni LED panel, Visio’s Pasolite 100M with manual colour temperature selection and Rotolight’s ANOVATM LED EcoFlood whose ‘Magic Eye’ technology uses an iPhone to measure colour temperature, and wirelessly transmit colour settings to the light. So, despite the shortcomings inherent to LED, clearly new units are being developed and produced thick and fast. Is it just the temptation of low-cost solutions, or are the developers finding solutions that truly meet the quality expectations of demanding film and TV producers? Are lower CRI figures a real problem? Not necessarily, according to an ARRI spokesman, who said: “We have tested our LED products (LoCaster panels and L-Series fresnels) and both have very good quality colour reproduction for film/broadcast with a rating of 90> for all models. Our units are controlled with internal software designed by ARRI, which drive the LED arrays to our high standards. “ T h e overwhelming response I have witnessed over
