NAB Video: Limelite Brings LED Daylight Tube Fixtures to Your Lighting Arsenal

There's a lot of LED lighting companies out there, but we haven't come across any doing quite what Limelite are doing here: putting high output, high CRI leds inside of a form factor that everybody is used to in fluorescent tube fixtures. Ryan Koo spoke with Tim Haskell from Limelite on the NAB floor to get the scoop, click through to watch the interview:

So... that kicker is looking pretty nasty green.

Seems like good stuff, but just a tad above my personal budget at the moment.
The interview was conducted rather bad by the way. Was sometimes hard to keep watching due to it.

The interviewee came off as somewhat antagonistic. He almost seemed peeved to be answering questions. Maybe just awkward, but it was kind of hard to watch.

MacTech LED has a similar line of products.

The ladder light I've seen on set before. Pretty nice light. Curious to see what Limelight offers.

Have to agree with Jeroen that this was a bad interview. I don't think the interviewer was that knowledgeable about lights. I did see some green but I think that was coming from the house lights because it was casting on the heads.

Thanks for the report! I found the interview … pretty decent for a run and gun situation. And as to judging the color of the lights DURING a show with about 500 other light sources? Hmmm, maybe not a good idea. We have no idea what color settings the camera was using either. Real world product reviews will tell a better story.

$1400USD for a sub-90 CRI light? It's nice to see more companies bringing out products (ultimately I think it helps filmmakers both in cost and competition to bring out the best)...but why would I get one of these instead of a Diva400 (which after buying 4 daylight and 4 tungsten balanced tubes is about the same price)? Divas are 95 CRI, come in their own case...etc... If newer companies come in, they need either a superior product or a superior price (I won't settle for inferior products, but if the price was cheap, I know many people would accept some shortcomings...)
