Introducing the NBCUniversal LightBlade® Series – versatile production lighting modules featuring reference-quality tunable white light combined with a separate Rec.2020 saturated color system, available in multiple configurations. Lighting professionals can selectively layer saturated color on top of white light, providing endless options for different shades, tints, and tones without sacrificing the white light quality critical for production and broadcast lighting.
The basic Lightblade module is a linear 4’ fixture that can be used individually, or “clicked” together on mounting plates that adapt 1, 2 or 4 Lightblades to standard grip gear. Developed by Cineo Lighting, the Lightblade outputs up to 8,000 lumens of high-CRI white light, tunable from 2700K to 6500K. The white light output can be blended with the built-in high-output RGB saturated color engine, providing unlimited lighting control possibilities. Each Lightblade is powered by 24VDC and controllable via DMX and RDM protocols.
The LightBlade series also includes two additional pre-configured systems: the Lightblade Ladder, and the 4’ x 4’ Lightblade LB1K.
Building on NBC Universal’s patented innovations, the Ladder integrates 12 Lightblades in a 14’ vertical configuration, ideal for lighting set backdrops. The Ladder light can be controlled as a single fixture or as 6 independent zones. This offers the ability to change color and intensity in different regions being lit by the Ladder, including mimicking movement and shadowing within a single fixture.
The LightBlade LB1K is a 1,000 Watt soft source composed of 20 individual Lightblades in a 4’x4’ footprint making a sleek and powerful lighting tool, both on-set or on-location. The LB1K features a simple user interface with an intuitive control panel for local control, and both wired and wireless DMX/RDM remote control. The LB1K can be managed as a singular-output lighting tool, or can be mapped into 10 zones across the fixture surface that can create dynamic lighting environments such as motion and chromatic effects.
The NBCUniversal LightBlade combines NBCUniversal’s decades of production and broadcast experience with Cineo’s award-winning proprietary technologies, providing new tools for motion picture, television production, broadcast, and concert touring.
