Lighting backgrounds with Thelight
Secure a homogenous illumination over any kind of background becomes extremely simple with Thelight thanks to the great size of its luminance surface and by its capacity to open the beam while projecting the light at long distance with its fresnel lenses.
Thelight fixtures long throw and wide light beam lets you evenly light a background of up to 6 meters high with an excellent T Stop by using just one row of lights hanging from the ceiling.
If you need to light a higher background or eventually get a higher light level you just need to add more light units or set a second row on the ground.
How much light do i get?
You get 1300 Lux of even light over a 3 x 3 meters background or 840 Lux over a 5 x 5 meters background.
How does VELVET match with HD?
VELVET high power LED luminaries have been specially designed for HD use: they deliver a high colour reproduction index (more than 90 CRI) to get vibrant colours and perfect skin tones and colour rendition to avoid any problem on post production.
What are the cost savings?
Cost are dramatically reduced in terms of power draw, long LED life, maintenance free, heat free technology and cut on gels cost.
Power draw is reduced ten times over tungsten light and four times over fluorescent.
The heat free light does not disturb the actors and cuts air conditioner cost. You need just a few fixtures to get a wealthy light level due to the high light output.
The flat and portable lamp heads require minimum space on the set, transport and storage.
There is no need to use corrections gels or scrims or waste time and money adjusting the light or replacing lamps.
What are the real benefits or using THELIGHT?
VELVET fixtures can be remotely and DMX controlled letting you a total light control without using gels or scrims. You can digitally change light intensity, colour temperature and green/magenta bias to instantly adjust your light.
How do I place the light fixtures?
Arrange VELVET fixtures 1 meter above the background and separate them 2,5 meters from it. Set up the 4LONG luminaries in its flat position along a row, separated 2 meters among them. Place the 6LIGHT luminaries among the 4LONG units.
To get the perfect light evenness set every luminary at its maximum beam spread by twisting it outward and focus the light to the background at 45º. If you need to light a higher background or eventually get a higher light level you just need to add more light units or set a second row on the ground.
And what about a gradient brackground?
No problem, just spot the light fixtures, put them closer to the background and you will get the gradient you wish.
