MediaLight 6500K Single 140 cm Strip
QUESTIONS & ANSWERSAsk a Question
Will this work on a 85” stand mounted Sony 900F?
Yes, a single horizontal strip is all that is required for a TV sat on a stand.
You could also use our Flex, Quad or Quad XL, depending on your preferences. The single strip tends to have a broader halo and the other units can have a smaller halo if that's desired since the other versions would be closer the the edges and could be set to a lower dimming level - rather than a brigher strip projecting from the center of the back of the display.
How wide is the strip?
Can Alexa control the single 6500K
Every MediaLight Bias Lighting System for TV (this excludes the Eclipse and Pro, for computer monitors) includes an IR remote and dimmer, which is interoperable with any smart hub equipped with an IR bridge. Compatible hubs include Logitech Harmony and Broadlink Mini 3, but any hub with a learning mode can learn the IR commands (we've uploaded the codes to Broadlink, but learning mode is needed for Harmony at this time).
Will it work with 82" TV (around 72.5 inch in length)? Thank you
Yes, however, only if the TV is on a stand. If the TV is on a wall mount, you should go with one of the sizes of the Quad.
Will the 140cm work on a 60" tv
For virtually all TVs on a stand up to 75", the single strip is bright enough and casts a large enough halo. It will need to be dimmed for reference levels. The dimmer is in the box. For wall mounts, you want the Quad.
How does this light change colors. I stuck it on my TV but I only see white.
Please see the answer to this question below. 🤪
How does the IR remote work? Won’t the tv block the line of sight to its sensor?
The IR receiver is placed close to the edge of the TV and can be reached by either direct IR light or reflected (off the wall) IR light. If placed away from the edge, the TV can block the infrared light.
Does this change colors?
No, there is a difference between full-spectrum D65 white light and colour-changing. Our lights don't change colours and are remarkably stable.
Our bias lights emit a very particular wavelength of light. They are based on the CIE (Commission internationale de l'éclairage) D65 standard illuminant, which means that they are designed to closely mimick the sun, which is the basis of "video white" or the colour of light that all TVs are based upon. The purpose of this is to make the content on your TV look as the director intended. In fact, there's a very good chance that the director and team used the MediaLight to edit and colour grade the film.
When you use a bias light, it should be the only light on in the room during viewing, so it's also acting as a high quality, high-CRI light source in your room. Placement behind the TV ensures that there is no glare and really makes the colours and contrast pop. It improves the picture on your TV in ways that few other tweaks can.
If your TV is on a stand, this is the MediaLight model for you. If you are using a wall mount or articulating arm mount, we recommend the MediaLight Quad.
None of the other LED bias lights on the market even come close to 6500K. Ours do. We guarantee it. Check out what professional colourists are saying.
Whichever version you choose, all MediaLight Bias Lighting Systems include:
- High-accuracy 6500K CCT (Correlated Colour Temperature)
- Colour Rendering Index (CRI) of 95 Ra
- 5V USB Powered (can be powered by any TV with a USB port)
- Included AC Adapter (not needed, but useful if USB ports are limited)
- Included wire routing clips (to keep things tidy)
- Included Infrared PWM dimmer
- Peel and stick authentic 3M mounting adhesive
- 5 Year Limited Warranty
Our bias lights are custom built with light emitting diodes of the highest quality and accuracy. We may not be able to make all of your dreams come true, but we can at least solve your bias light problems. Your search for an accurate 6500K bias light ends now.
