Floats like a butterfly…

Sometimes there’s no sting in the tail.

The established players in the lighting industry were gleeful when BBC technical guru Alan Roberts announced the Television Lighting Consistency Index (TLCI).

It had been clear for a while that the old CRI score was giving incomplete information about the quality of the new generation of LED lights. Colourists started seeing ugly green spikes in pictures that they could do little about in post, despite a light scoring high in the old system.

TLCI is a far more accurate gauge of the quality of an LED and the big brand lighting manufacturers warmly welcomed its arrival. Things didn’t quite work out the way they hoped though. Many of the sector’s lower priced newcomers actually posted some pretty impressive scores. Pretty impressive indeed…

Have a look at the GTC website which summarizes the results. What we are so excited about is the fantastic results achieved by the Alphatron and LEDGO panels. What do these high scores mean?

  • 85 to 100 errors are so small that a colourist would not consider correcting them
  • 75 to 85 a colourist would probably want to correct the colour performance, but could easily get an acceptable result

Let’s put this into context. The latest sub-£350 LEDGO LG-600 outperforms virtually everything else currently on the market. And a sub-£200 Alphatron TriStar 4 is easily good enough for television work.
