TLCI LIGHTING STANDARD

CINEO’S TRUCOLOR HS AND LS RECEIVE HIGHEST RATINGS ON NEW BROADCAST MEASUREMENT STANDARD

On June 24, 2013 a workshop jointly organized by the EBU and the
Guild of Television Cameramen brought industry experts together at
BSkyB’s Sky Studios near London to learn about the EBU’s new LED
light assessment tools. Former BBC broadcast engineer and color
sciences expert Alan Roberts presented the Television Lighting
Consistency Index.

The TLCI was developed by the EBU to address many of the issues
associated with the use of LED lighting in film and television
production. Several manufacturers of lighting products brought
fixtures for evaluation using the calibrated TLCI-2012 testing setup at
the event.

The results: TruColor HS achieved the highest TLCI rating of all LED
fixtures tested, with a rating of 98 at both 3200K and 5600K,
matching the ratings of HMI and surpassing those of fluorescent
fixtures. Complete TLCI ratings for all CCTs on both TruColor HS and
TruColor LS are now available at cineolighting.co. Learn more
