Asymmetric Background Lighting System

Illumination of flat backgrounds and/or Chromakey backgrounds cannot be described as creative subject. It is purely technical. But, when technical aspects are well managed, creative aspects also find their place!

It is about evenness.

Evenly lit background when intensity on top, middle and lower part, should show minimum deviation of lux values, it can easily be keyed out without pushing software for cleaning up mistakes and imperfections created on the set. The capacity of modern software adjustments is getting higher and higher …

When the software is pushed for background cleaning, foreground gets damaged and does not look natural anymore. When software capability is used just for edges and hair perfection, acting in a narrow spectral (related to intensity) range preservation of foreground actor’s natural skin tones will be achieved and then final results do not differ from live image acquired on real indoor, outdoor or CG set. Same status is applicable to shadows from foreground objects visible on the background.

Clean delivery of technical lighting allows much more freedom and flexibility for foreground lighting in relation with background (live or CG image embedded after keying). Here, all elements of the Lightstream system become a real game changer. When the foreground and the background melts together without being noticed by the audience, the job can be considered professionally delivered.

All of it is really easy! Now!

 
 
 

Our goal is to produce Asymmetric Background lighting set at a minimum possible price and maximum possible efficiency. Any luxury options will be available on demand, but basic configuration exist, arranged for saving customer’s money.

Components for Asymmetric Background lighting set installation

From 1 to 4 120cm/4ft light heads, each with lamp, linear diffuser and 2 linear reflectors with various spread indexes from 1 to 4. 

For each light head at least one extension cable in 3,6 or 9 meters length (all cables with 4 pins XLR connectors). Besides extension cable we providing main 4X splitter and additional 2X splitter in case of using set configuration with 2 X 60cm/2ft light heads. Main splitter used as adapter between 11 pin power supply output and light heads supplied with power pigtails cables with 4 pin XLR.

If power supply positioned close to the light head on the truss or rigging system, first light head may be plugged directly in one of splitter ends. 
When 2 light heads positioned close enough to each other (depends on background height) 2 light heads may be plugged directly, saving extension cables as spares or using those for remaining light heads. 

Please use wiring diagram shown above for more cabling details.

Tools required for installation is:

  • 19 mm wrench,
  • Allen key (both included in Tool kit)
  • super clamp and ladder (not included)

Other components, like: DMX cables, stray light cutting components and fabric cover for reflectors from the studio side can be ordered from us or easily provided from local stock.
