Woah, two eps in the space of a month? Stop the presses! Hold the phone! Pet the hedgehog! Wat? In this episode, Alexander is back:

 

Industry news: 

  • New fixtures / gear 
    • GLP JDC1s now feature “Aggressive mode”, which increases the brightness 180% when the RGB LEDs are not in use 
    • World’s first 50-watt 7-color: emitter
    • New short-arc lamps: Osram SharXS Brilliant Series. 1000, 1200, 1500. They have a CRI of 92, which is pretty high. I’d love to see TM-30-15 specifications on these. 
      • Fun question: when was the last time you saw a jacketed arc lamp? Like, a decade? 
    • LightConverse is now L8. Alex riffs on how he feels about LightConverse.

  • Lighting trivia!

    • Scroller
