Moving to LED studio lighting? A few things to consider…

Over the past 10 years, LED technology has dramatically improved, changing the way that motion pictures, television and broadcast productions are illuminated. The obvious savings related to power and HVAC, as well as reduced maintenance, make LED the right technology choice.

That being said, there is a wide range of quality between manufacturers, which should not be overlooked when outfitting a studio with LED lighting. Higher-quality LED lighting instruments tend to cost considerably more than the lower-price alternatives. When choosing an LED source for production lighting, it’s important to keep in mind a few key elements that will make a big difference over your adoption of LED lighting.

The first thing to consider is the quality of the light. The refinement and better use of rare-earth phosphors has allowed digital lighting sources to achieve color rendering comparable to legacy tungsten and daylight sources. Several grading systems have been adopted to rate the light quality, and in all cases a higher rating on any of these scales will make a big difference in the captured image being illuminated. If the lighting of slow-motion photography is a requirement, it is important to ensure that the LED source is capable of flicker-free operation at least 10X the desired frame rate. READ MORE HERE…
