The ikan web series “The Drawing Board” hits number three and it is about tungsten colour LED studio lights with DMX control.
The Drawing Board: IDMX36T & IDMX500T – Tungsten-color LEDs w/ DMX Control
A lot of filmmakers are used to shooting with incandescent lighting. An incandescent tungsten bulb emits a color temperature of 3200K, which is warm and pleasing to the eye, especially on skin tones. The drawback of incandescent bulbs is that they draw a lot of power, get extremely hot, and need to be replaced regularly.
LEDs on the other hand are lightweight, cool to the touch, and consume much less power than incandescent bulbs, which waste most of their energy on heat instead of light. LEDs can even be powered by batteries, which makes them very convenient for shooting on location.
ikan LED studio lights are DMX512 controllable, making integration into existing studios simple. DMX512 is a standard for controlling up to 512 lights from a central device. Once each light is assigned a channel, luminance and color temperature adjustments (for dual color lights) can be made from the DMX controller, without having to access each light individually. This can save a lot of time when lights are hanging from a grid or other hard-to-reach places.
