Updated studio lighting for LRT television

Over the past three years, the Lithuania’s national broadcaster LRT has been consistently improving and upgrading technical equipment in its filming and broadcasting studios. Audiotonas takes part in this process by supplying and installing modern computerized lighting equipment in various LRT television studios.

 

The big studio

At the end of 2022 new lighting equipment was installed in the biggest studio where the most popular LRT shows are filmed. We have provided multifunctional spotlights from the Italian manufacturer “Clay Paky”, ideal for television filming:

Clay Paky AXCOR Profile 600 HC THEATER – 16 pcs.

Clay Paky HY B-EYE K15 – 24 pcs.

Clay Paky Sharpy Plus – 16 pcs.

Clay Paky K-EYE K20 HCR – 8 pcs.

All luminaires operate extremely quietly, have precise movement control and the color characteristics of the light they emit are compatible with the technical characteristics of television filming cameras.

 

Studio no. 3

In 2021 in the “Studio no.3” we installed a set of mobile equipment, that replaced old devices made in Soviet times. The new equipment provides the ability to quickly change the appearance of the studio for various discussion and current affairs programs.

 

The set consists of 20 pieces. 500kg and 1000kg capacity chain hoists, which raise or lower 10 aluminum traverses with floodlights. In the entire studio space, 90 units of lighting devices form the required color and the appropriate light level. Profile type spotlights with RGBAL LED light source – Silverstar FREZNO ze-2 SS815XAL. These floodlights have high-efficiency Fresnel-type lenses and innovative LED color sources that form the required light color with HSIC (Hue, Saturation, Intensity, Color) system 5-color (RGBAL – Red, Green, Blue, Amber, Lime) integrated light elements. Spotlights can accurately mix any color or change the color temperature of white light in a wide range from 2700K to 8000K. The spotlights are also characterized by high CRI (Color Rendering Index) and CQS (Color Quality Scale) indicators of color reproduction, which is particularly important in television studios. The luminous flux and color properties of all luminaires are controlled from a computerized panel with presets for different situations. The beam angles of the floodlights are also remotely controlled from 15 to 45 degrees. A complete set of mobile cables and switching devices, suitable for any situation in the entire area of the studio, is available for quick re-installation of luminaires or corrections of placement according to the specifics of individual TV shows.
