NBCUniversal has introduced the LightBlade LB800, a new LED light that uses proprietary phosphor-converted white light LEDs, as well as phosphor-converted saturated color LEDs, to create a balanced, natural-looking spectrum.
NBCUniversal said the LB800, in partnership with Cineo Lighting, supports both eight and 16-bit DMX data, as well as multiple color space personalities. The LB800 can store and recall multiple fixture settings for quick access to frequently used lighting parameters.
The NBCUniversal LightBlade LB800 is a 24 x 48-inch fixture that can be configured in 10 independent zones, with complete DMX/RDM control over each zone. It features local and remote dimming, 0-100 percent, calibrated in f-stops and can be controlled via wired or built-in wireless CRMX control.
NBCUniversal LightBlade products feature reference-quality variable white light from 2700K to 6500K. It has color rendering with typical CRI>90, R9>95 and a saturated color engine that works creatively with high-CRI white light.
NBCUniversal LightBlade is a unit of NBCUniversal, the media and entertainment company that owns and operates the NBC television network, a motion picture company, television production operations and the NBC television stations group. NBCUniversal is a subsidiary of Comcast Corporation.
