It all started with white balance. Digital cameras such as the Arri Alexa can often be “white balanced” to any CCT between 2000K and 11000K. It’s even possible to set the camera to compensate for +/- green cast.
In addition to camera-coordinated white light, LiteMat Spectrum can produce saturated color accents. Intended to complement your baseline-white, these colors are subtly blended with the balanced white light. This vastly improves the chromaticity of semi-saturated colors with full spectrum, high CRI desaturation (patent pending).
This broad color space is the basis of LiteMat Spectrum. Let the light fixture be able to produce the exact shade of white the camera sees as neutral. So we did: LiteMat Spectrum can produce white light between 2000K and 11000K. And, it too can be set to compensate for +/- green casts such as from automobile windows or available light.
Next is compliance with “ITU-R Recommendation” standards. LiteMat Spectrum makes use of advanced lookup tables (LUTs) to produce colors within the standards of the Rec. 709, Rec. 2020, and DCI-P3 color spaces. This significantly improves post-production workflow by reducing color correction time.
In order for LiteMat Spectrum to achieve the best and most reliable results, an entirely new and truly modern approach to control was necessary. The PDX dimming method embeds advanced, high-voltage LED drivers inside the LiteMat head, eliminating brightness variations due to long cable lengths. LiteMat Spectrum allows for up to 200 feet of cable between the head unit and the PDX power unit without noticeable output loss.
