Bloomberg convention coverage lit with Zylight LEDs
The lights will be provided by High Output, Inc., a rental facility and live event production company. Jim Hirsch, of High Output, will also be serving as Bloomberg’s lighting director for the convention coverage.
Bloomberg’s home base includes a small studio, from Seth Easter Design, and various interview setups around the convention venues. The temporary studio includes six 200-watt Bi-Flex4, six 100-watt Bi-Flex2, and 10 50-watt Bi-Flex1 units.
The Aladdin lights will be used primarily for fill, with about a dozen Zylight F8-200 LED Fresnels in use by other clients at the convention.
“The Bi-Flex is a versatile lighting tool. The quality of the soft box and egg crate grid makes it a viable option, and the color quality is just about perfect,” said Hirsch. “It’s extremely lightweight and extremely bright, but still controllable. That helps quite a bit, especially in the broadcast booth where we’re working with small pipes instead a full-size grid.”
