RE-LIGHTING JIMMY KIMMEL LIVE! WITH TRUCOLOR
The Jimmy Kimmel Live! show has just completed a comprehensive update of their lighting grid, adding both TruColor HS™ and TruColor LS™ lighting systems from Cineo Lighting.
Lighting Designer Christian Hibbard, who received an Emmy in 2011 for his work on the Jimmy Kimmel show chose TruColor for its their ability to match traditional tungsten fixtures while reducing the overall HVAC load in the small, historic theater. “Our maximum load before the changeover was 3,305 amps; with the new system we are at 1,075 amps. We calculate that the change in equipment will pay for itself in four and a half years, just in power, globes and labor. This does not include savings in air conditioning, which is also substantial.”
DPS, a leading L.A.-based lighting supplier, provided (12) LS and (18) HS fixtures to replace existing 1K and 2K tungsten zip lights.
Jimmy Kimmel Live! originates from the El Capitan Theater in Hollywood, and airs weeknights on ABC.
