The MediaLight Pro 6500K CRI 99 Ra Bias Lighting System
The MediaLight Pro:
The best bias light we've ever built
The MediaLight Pro was created for colourists who need the highest CRI and the most uniform spectral power distribution in a bias light for their professional displays. The Pro uses an entirely new class of SMD (LED) chips, powered by near-violet photon engines, and with an incredible colour rendering index (CRI) of 99 Ra (TLCI 99.3 Qa). The MediaLight Pro is indistinguishable from daylight to the human eye.
It's an entirely new kind of bias light, powered by an entirely new class of SMD (LED) lighting.
The human eye primarily sees wavelengths between 400-700 nanometers. The spectral power distribution curve (SPD) for the MediaLight Pro reveals that instead of the telltale harsh blue spike found in traditional white LED systems, the near-violet photon engine's energy falls largely in the subperceptual range.
Most commodity LED lighting systems fall apart in the R9 and R12 values, which are not included in CRI calculations, but are necessary for the faithful reproduction of skin tones and deep reds. They are often replaced with much more energy-efficient, and cheaper green phosphors, which can result in a greenish colour cast, even when used to illuminate a grey surface, such as is the case with bias lighting. Beyond the violet photon engine, which eliminates "blue spike," The MediaLight Pro uses a special blend of phosphors that include these vital reds, resulting in a much smoother SPD and more natural light.
With a colour rendering index (CRI) of 99 Ra (TLCI 99.3 Qa) and CCT of 6500K, the MediaLight Pro is the most advanced D65 compliant bias lighting system available today.
It is compact. It can be powered by the USB 2.0 or USB 3.0 ports on your professional monitor, and it costs 1/3 the price of high-CRI, blue emitter-based professional bias lights that are less accurate.
