Scripps Stations Across the Country Upgrade to LED with Brightline


KERO-TV in Bakersfield, California now joins sister stations across Scripps Broadcasting with LED studio lighting conversion. Brightline soft lights, spotlights, fresnels and rear-lit scenic panels are a few of the many features. The lighting is said to increase operating efficiency while enhancing video results.

Over a dozen Scripps Broadcasting stations are now relying on Brightline’s all-in-one retrofit kit and turnkey lighting upgrades to tell their stories. “Scripps has a storied history in journalism and cable and is well regarded for its latest multi-platform initiatives,” says Sam Cercone, who’s the managing partner at Brightline. “Widely known for pioneering new technologies, the expansive lighting upgrades underway throughout the group further solidify its position as a broadcast innovator.”

Brightline emphasizes its commitment to sustainable technologies, as well as sustainable prices. “With the retrofit kit, we can upgrade existing Brightline fluorescent systems to LED at an attractive cost through repurposing fixtures,” adds Cercone. “And the high-color rendering LEDs enhance video. Upgrading to LED reduces energy consumption, renews the lifetime of the fixtures, and lowers maintenance costs, providing significant saving.” Presently, Brightline has 5,000 customers in over 35 countries.

Vicon Introduces Mobile Mocap at SIGGRAPH

Motion capture systems developer Vicon is previewing a futuristic new “Mobile Mocap” technology at SIGGRAPH 2011 in Vancouver. Moving mocap out of the lab and into the field, Vicon's Mobile Mocap system taps several new technologies, many years in the making. At the heart of Mobile Mocap is a very small lipstick-sized camera that enables less obtrusive, more accurate facial animation data. The new cameras capture 720p (1280X720) footage at 60 frames per second. In addition, a powerful processing unit synchronizes, stores, and wirelessly transmits the data, all in a tiny wearable design.
