An interview from the 2017 National Association of Broadcasters Convention in Las Vegas with Trisha Maas of Cineo Lighting. Cineo Lighting was founded to produce the highest quality lighting systems available for the motion picture, television and photography industries. Utilizing the latest developments in the field of phosphorescence and exploiting the unique properties of single wavelength photon sources, the principal partners at Cineo have developed an array of lighting devices that have captured the interest of professional image makers worldwide. Beginning with the TruColor™ lighting line in 2012, the company continues to focus on innovations that push the boundaries of illumination technology. In this interview Trisha talks with us about a few different lighting solutions like the Cineo HSX & Mav X, as well as the ProductionHUB Award of Excellence winning Quantum Qc80.
The versatile Qc80 provides predictable, repeatable results for end users that are unachievable with any other lighting instrument. The same color shading can be realized through the camera regardless of the CCT used for photography. For example, +2 Green added to 3000K CCT will look the same as +2 Green at 4500K to the correctly white-balanced camera. In addition to Cineo’s proprietary phosphor-converted white light LEDs, the Qc80 is the first unit designed with phosphor-converted saturated color LEDs, thus extending Cineo’s deep-red color rendering technology. Cineo’s Photo Accurate Dimming, which maps both local and DMX control to camera f-stops, is also fully supported.
