Understanding Discontinuous Spectrum

“I asked eight companies selling LED lighting at NAB for TLCI data for their products. Of the eight, only one had heard of TLCI, although I notice that Hexolux has (very good) TLCI data on its website.” 

Let there be light at NAB!

“The evolution of lighting has seen in the last few years, taking us from heavy hot filament driven instruments to color balanced fluorescent to LED lights. Until now LEDs of work best in small intimate surroundings. Some larger systems have been starting to be seen. But now I discovered Hexolux  at NAB.

And I must tell you I was tremendously impressed. The system highlight is the flexibility. You can start with one lamp and add the second, third, fourth, fifth or as many as you need for your lighting demands. You can create anything that you need and with the specially designed Rella or the Xoft softbox,  you have an unlimited range of lighting supplies within your reach.”
