Hu Nan TV in China Chooses Litepanels for All LED Lit Studios

Van Nuys, California: October 15, 2012 – Pioneering LED lighting designer and manufacturer Litepanels® announces that the second largest Chinese television network, Hu Nan TV, has recently completed an upgrade to its TV facility in Chang Sha City, Hu Nan Province, which includes three all-LED studio installations using Litepanels LED fixtures exclusively.

Hu Nan TV Vice President and Chief Engineer Huang Wei made the decision to purchase the Litepanels fixtures after an exhaustive search through the many suppliers of professional lighting equipment. “The Litepanels fixtures have exhibited a consistent quality of design and light output that has proven itself time after time in many studio applications around the world.”

Mr. Huang also praised the illumination quality of all the fixtures, saying, “They perform very well in terms of color temperature and consistency. We see an obvious improvement in the on-set talent’s skin color rendition when using Litepanels LED lighting fixtures.”

Aside from improved image quality, the switch to Litepanels in its studios brings Hu Nan TV real-life Yuan savings. To outfit all three studios they installed a total of 68 Litepanels Sola 6™ LED Fresnel fixtures, 79 Litepanels 1×1™ panels, and 6 Litepanels Hilio™ high output panels. Where they previously drew 60kW of power to light these studios, the Litepanels fixtures now draw just 12kW for an 80% reduction in power draw. Additional energy savings come from greatly reduced air conditioning needs due to Litepanels’ low heat emission and integrated dimmers that eliminate the need for expensive and heat generating dimmer racks. These energy saving features will allow Hu Nan TV to recoup their initial investment in Litepanels in less than 3 years, and their continued savings after that will be positively reflected in their bottom line.

The Litepanels-lit Hu Nan TV Studios include a 120 square meter (1300 square foot) classic newsroom newscast set and two green screen stages. Their primary green screen stage is 150 square meter (1600 square foot) and dedicated to virtual reality productions, while a smaller 96 square meter (1300 square foot) green screen stage is primarily used for post-production matting, overflow production and backup for the news studio. They have been so impressed by the results that Hu Nan TV plans to replace the existing lighting in more of their studios with Litepanels LED fixtures in the near future.

For the Litepanels conversion, Mr. Huang’s engineering staff chose to convert all three studios from their previous tungsten color balance to daylight color balance. Even though Litepanels has tungsten balanced LED options, they noted that daylight color balance provides a superior color rendering of the talent’s skin as well as the clothing and set design of the live news studio. In the case of their two virtual green screen studios, they find that daylight color balance gives them a greater ability for matting elements during live recording.

The studio upgrade, which also included new studio pedestals and teleprompters from Litepanels’ sister brands Vinten and Autoscript respectively, won the network the coveted SARFT (State Administration of Radio, Film and Television) award for the most technically advanced studio of 2012 in all of China.
