The Area48 LED Softlight from BB&S was chosen by TV2 in Denmark for their new upgraded HD Newsroom. Using "next generation" remote phosphor technology, the Area48 Soft achieves excellent colour rendering with up to 97 CRI. The wide area softness of the output enabled TV2 to make good use of a Steadicam operator. The upgrade presented them with an " .... opportunity to create a more visually attractive and versatile on-screen look."
The white version of the Area48 is used to complement the white ceiling, as they are frequently both in shot. Note the small number of air conditioning outlets seen in this shot; a direct benefit of employing low heat output LED technology. Combine the air conditioning advantage of using LED lighting, with the low power consumption inherent in the technology, and it is easy to calculate that the power cost saving is colossal.
