Bias Lighting specialist Scenic Labs has announced a new line of bias lights and colour grading suite lighting solutions, certified for accuracy by the Imaging Science Foundation.

The MediaLight Mk2 Series is available in a range of new sizes and formats, including a dimmable A19 bulb, a grading suite desk lamp and a range of new MediaLight Mk2 lighting strips, all of which boast simulated D65 accuracy, colour rendering index (CRI) ≥ 98, and TLCI 99.

“ISF strongly recommends watching movies with the same lighting that directors used to create them,” says Joel Silver, founder and president of the Imaging Science Foundation. “We've been recommending the MediaLight to post-production professionals for quite some time; it's the best tool we have found for studio lighting. Now, we’re working with CEDIA to bring this quality of lighting into residential installations. The environmental color impacts our perception of colour on the screen; MediaLight provides a neutral ambient light that's ideal for both content creation and content reproduction.”

The desk lamp, co-branded as the Ideal-Lume Desk Lamp by MediaLight, was designed in partnership with bias-lighting pioneer CinemaQuest, recognised for its Ideal-Lume bias-lighting brand.

“The capabilities of professional and consumer displays are constantly improving, and users spend considerable time getting their settings just right,” says Jason Rosenfeld, president of Scenic Labs. “Professionals have long known that low quality lights with poor color rendering effectively ‘uncalibrate’ a display in the viewer’s eyes. The MediaLight Mk2 Series brings unparalleled accuracy to even the most color-critical environments.”

“The new ColorGrade Mk2 LED chips used in these updated lighting options strike an incredible balance between performance and affordability for all aspects of suite lighting,” says Bram Desmet, CEO of Flanders Scientific. “In particular, the A19 bulb and desk lamp address the unique needs of professional color-grading suites with solutions that warm up almost instantly, remain accurate when dimmed, and have an exceptionally high CRI/TLCI. Best of all, the SMD chips shared between the Mk2 Flex, Eclipse, desk lamp and A19 bulbs provide for consistent lighting throughout the suite, something we know our colorist clients will greatly appreciate.”
