EP7 - The pitfalls of lighting with LED Walls
Let's talk about LED walls and why they might not always be the best choice for lighting. While LED walls have come a long way, there are still some challenges to consider.
One big issue is color rendition. LED walls typically only use RGB diodes, which can make skin tones look fake and unflattering. Not exactly the look you're going for! But fear not, because Rainbow 2 and Double Rainbow lights use an RGBX color system that will make sure you avoid that "lobster lighting" look.
Output is another issue. While LED walls are great for displaying images, they're not so great for providing actual lighting. You might need to get your actors super close to the wall to get the lighting you need, which isn’t always practical on set. But with the Quasar Science 406 array, you'll get up to 330 footcandles of output, which is significantly more than you'll get from an LED wall. Plus, it'll give your actors more space to move around and do their thing.
Finally, there's pixelation. You want your LED wall to be interactive and responsive, right? Well, if you go for a wall with big clunky pixels, that's not going to happen. But with the Rainbow Series, you'll get fine-tuned pixelation that matches the interactivity of the LED wall.
So there you have it - the pitfalls of lighting with LED walls. But don't worry, because the Rainbow Series lights are here to save the day! They provide high spectrum color rendition, high output, and fine-tuned pixelation, all at a much lower cost than adding more sections of LED wall. Let's get to lighting!
