Certified Color-Space Compliant, the lighting system will begin shipping in early summer.
LiteGear has introduced the LiteMat Spectrum, which takes the best features of the LiteMat line and introduces an expanded Kelvin range with the ability to add accent color. The lighting system will begin shipping in early summer.
“A project that was years in the making, LiteMat Spectrum began with a simple objective: to simplify the complexity of cinematic color mixing,” says Al DeMayo, president and CEO of LiteGear. “It is designed to easily match the white-balance settings of digital cinema and HD cameras.”
LiteMat Spectrum can accurately reproduce any Kelvin temperature of white light between 2000K and 11000K with +/- 8 points of tint correction. It can also augment this white light with 360 degrees of color accents. Saturated color can be added with 100 shades of depth. This patented color process also provides full spectrum desaturation by using TrueHybrid white light to desaturate the color accents.
LiteMat Spectrum is the first lighting system to be Certified Color-Space Compliant. By setting the recording format in the dimmer (Rec. 709, Rec. 2020, etc.), LiteMat Spectrum will only produce color within that color space. That means no color noise and no data outside the specified gamut.
These new LiteMats resemble their predecessors in almost every way, and all LiteMat Spectrum units are compatible with each other.
