An interview from the 2018 NAB Show in New York City with Tom Yuhas of Cineo Lighting. Cineo Lighting was founded to produce the highest quality lighting systems available for the motion picture, television, and photography industries. By pioneering cutting-edge technologies, Cineo creates high-output, compact light sources for image capture, in all power ranges, which exceed the capabilities of traditional lighting tools. In this interview Tom talks with us about their new LightBlade Edge line of LED production lighting.

The improved modular fixtures provide enhanced user functionality and easy rigging features. All NBCUniversal LightBlade fixtures – the new Edge, the LightBlade 1K, the Ladder Light, and the LB800 – use proprietary phosphor-converted white light LEDs, as well as phosphor-converted saturated color LEDs, to create a balanced, natural-looking spectrum.

Individual Blades are the key component to the modular Edge fixtures. At 24" (610mm) or 48" (1.2m) wide by 2 1/2" (64mm) deep, the individual LightBlade bring you both versatility and a low profile footprint that can efficiently and discreetly light even the darkest and tightest corners of your set.

Each individual Lightblade can operate as a stand-alone fixture, with internal AC power supply, control electronics with DMX and Local control. Combining superior white light with innovative full-gamut saturated color technology, a single LightBlade delivers up to 5,000 lumens at an 80-watt power draw. Both 24" and 48" LightBlades are among the most powerful linear lighting engines on the market.

The Edge fixtures offer a unique modular design. LightBlades are integrated into the mounting system to create the Edge 160 (2-Blade) and Edge 320 (4-Blade) fixtures, delivering 10,000 or 20,000 lumens. The LightBlades in the Edge fixture can be set to operate as an integrated light source, or they can operate independently for dynamic lighting effects.

The Edge modular fixtures offer the simplicity of a complete lighting fixture with the flexibility of individual LightBlade control. Developed in partnership with Cineo Lighting, NBCUniversal LightBlade products are versatile, lightweight, silent and flicker-free, and built to endure the wear and tear of staging and production.
