THE WORLD OF REFLECTED LIGHT, PART 12: ECONOMY ECOLOGY
Watch 13 part series at: https://tinyurl.com/3u8vpb7h When our children walk the streets on Fridays and talk about ecology and climate change, we often think about electric power, miraculously generated by surface-mined brown coal, making the use of electrified automotive vehicles a little bit doubtful. We think about the benefits and dangers of atomic power, we think about the CO2 emission. Often, we are not aware that the media industry is a very important contributor to climate damage, and therefore Green Tech application in media is often neglected. In older days, when we were lighting a TV studio we may have employed 30 kW or even 100 kW of power, making it necessary to simultaneously employ 200 kW or 250 kW of power for climatization. Today, we can light the same area, usually lit by 30 kW in traditional ways with 970 Watt of LED light combined with Lightstream reflectors with the same lighting efficiency and the addition of many more creative choices. We all assume that LED lighting provides incredible savings, which, to a large extent is true. But then, when we work with the dedolight Lightstream system, we even save most of our lighting fixtures and therefore the no longer required power. Look back to the first chapter where we describe our 1200 Watt parallel beam light, which puts out more useful light over a huge distance than a 9 kW HMI Arri light in its spot position (50% more). This applies to all of my focusing lights, especially when you add the parallel beam intensifier, which in the example of the 400 Watt light adds 500% more light, keeping pretty much the same exit angle, thus, providing a lot more useful light that can be employed in many different directions. Thus, we claim to be the masters of media ecology and economy at the same time.
