SET- UP | PREV I EW: NAB SHOW
SESSION PICK WHAT COLOR IS YOUR LIGHT? AN EXPLORATION OF CRI, TLCI AND SSI WHEN: Tuesday 21 April, 3:30pm – 4.45pm WHERE: S225
When LED lights first came on the market, they revolutionised TV and film production – we all talked about how great they were, then we found out our measuring system had some pretty serious holes. Join imaging guru Gary Adock and Blair Paulsen as they talk about the differences between using the established Colour Rendering Index (CRI) versus the newer Television Lighting Consistency Index (TLCI) and the Academy’s Spectral Similarity Index (SSI).
The 2020 NAB Show sees the debut of the next generation of Mole-Richardson Co LED Spacelites, the Vari-space 2 and Vari-space 4. These spacelites utilise the same colour science and user interface found in the popular Mole Vari line of Fresnels. The Vari-space 2 and Vari-space 4 have been designed to fit the needs of the 2000 watt and 6000 watt quartz spacelites, respectively. With power draws of 350 watts and 900 watts, both spacelites feature variable colour temperature (2700K to 6500K,) plus/minus green correction, built-in LumenRadio, RDM and Bluetooth compatibility. Along with the complete line of Vari-Fresnels and Vari-Soft Panels, Mole-Richardson Co is also featuring the 20k LED. This 24in, single-source LED delivers unparalleled output on two 15-amp circuits.

to the rail itself. The rotator block is designed like a small grip head for attaching to industry-standard 5/8in or 3/8in pins and rods, such as a C-Stand arm. Magnetic feet and a battery plate for run-and-fun filming round out the offering.
With a variety of accessories, the mounting system provides a skeletal framework to help place lights in precisely the right spot and attach them to almost anything. For large arrays, the Frame Array fits RR or R2 at 6 and 12 lights respectively. The Ossium block brackets form smaller arrays in two- and four-bank configurations. Accessories also include a
Quasar’s RR100 and RR50 linear LED lights, recent additions to the Quasar product range, have really caught our attention for this year’s NAB Show. An enhancement of Quasar’s tubular form factor with their larger widths, these LEDs manage to keep the low-profile shape of the company’s legacy lights. Enter Quasar’s latest innovation, Ossium. A new rigging system with a name deriving from the Latin for bones, this system matches the originality of the RRs that it was designed for. Both the RRs and R2 come with a mounting rail down the back, lined with 1/4-20 mounting points and a NATO profile.
