B&M Lighting and Universal Studios have introduced a new LED lighting product – the Mac Tech LED. Using specially developed LED lighting tube technology that use 30% to 70% less power than conventional lighting, Mac Tech LEDs offer consistent color temperatures at both daylight and tungsten and are lightweight for easy load-in and strike.
Universal Studios Set Lighting will serve as the exclusive rental agent.
“Working closely with experienced film and television professionals, we’ve spent almost two years developing high output LED chips,” said Ray Wolffe, president, B&M Lighting. “Using Mac Tech LED, a production can use only Edison plugs and stingers, utilize 50K hour bulbs and save on air conditioning because the LED tubes run cool.”
For application in a wide variety of environments, Mac Tech LED Lighting is comprised of four product lines: LED Sled, Slimline, Soft Boxes and China Lights. The fixtures are assembled in Sun Valley from 100% recyclable aluminum.
“With the instrument’s superior quality of light output and rugged construction, we have already had a great response from the production community,” said Rick Maas, vice president, Universal Studios Set Lighting. “With Mac Tech LED, clients have the option of production tested lighting that is easier to install and significantly reduces their power distribution needs.”
