elation news: Kim Komando TV show

El show televisivo de Kim Komando, retransmitido para todos Estados Unidos desde Phoenix, ha renovado la instalación de iluminación de su estudio de grabación con 100x unidades de diferentes aparatos de Elation Professional.
14x recortes LED Elation Colour 5 Profile, 12x fresnel LED Elation DW Fresnel y 32x Elation TVL 3000-II DW son algunos de los proyectores de iluminación de Elation Professional que se han utilizado en esta instalación.

El show de Kim Komando se retransmite todos los fines de semana a través de más de 500 emisoras radiofónicas de Estados Unidos y también por Internet mediante streaming.
Los estudios en la ciudad de Phoenix, Arizona, en los que se graba este show han sido remodelados y la empresa Innovative Show Design (ISD) ha sido la responsable del diseño e instalación de iluminación, que ha contado con aparatos de tecnología LED en su totalidad.

Justin Garrone, de ISD, es el responsable del diseño de iluminación de este proyecto y comenta:
“Este diseño de iluminación ha tenido en cuenta el aspecto televisivo del show y hemos utilizado solamente proyectores LED en este proyecto, con las ventajas que esto conlleva respecto a costes de aire acondicionado y mantenimiento”.

En las diferentes zonas con las que cuenta el estudio y desde las que se retransmite el programa se han instalado proyectores de Elation Professional como el recorte LED Colour 5 Profile, el fresnel con temperatura de color variable DW Fresnel, el compacto Elar Q1 o los aparatos con LED multi-chip SixPar 200 y SixBar 1000.

Con ocho cámaras de televisión de alta definición en el estudio, ha sido prioritario que todos los aparatos de iluminación instalados tuvieran un Índice de Reproducción Cromática (CRI) lo más alto posible.
Justin comenta: “El CRI de cada proyector ha sido un tema importante. No quería tener que corregir tonalidades en los proyectores LED y el equipamiento de Elation Professional ha superado mis expectativas en cuanto a calidad lumínica, con todos los aparatos de Elation utilizados en esta instalación proporcionando valores CRI superiores a 85”.

14x unidades del recorte LED Colour 5 Profile de Elation se han instalado en diferentes zonas del estudio.
El diseño multi-chip de la fuente lumínica LED de este proyector (RGB + ámbar + menta) mejora la reproducción de tonalidades blancas (con una temperatura de color variable de 3.200° a 6.500° Kelvin) además de incrementar el valor de su índice de reproducción cromática (CRI).
Justin comenta: “El Elation Colour 5 Profile proporciona una muy buena luz blanca y la inclusión del chip color menta me ayuda a conseguir tonalidades blancas en la temperatura de color apropiada”.
El Colour 5 Profile de Elation Professional cuenta con una fuente lumínica LED RGBAM (RGB + ámbar + menta) de 180-vatios y un valor CRI de 94, lentes intercambiables (de 19°, 26°, 36° y 50° de apertura), posibilidad de utilización de gobos tamaño B, 5x curvas de dimmer, efecto estrobo y control manual sobre enfoque y sobre cuchillas/framing shutters.

10x unidades de la barra LED Colour Chorus están repartidas por el set de televisión proporcionando iluminación de color, mientras que 32x unidades del Elation TVL 3000-II Dynamic White proporcionan iluminación general.
“Los TVL 3000-II DW son muy completos y a la vez compactos y muy silenciosos al no tener ventiladores, y el hecho de que cada uno tenga un kit de diferentes lentes es algo muy práctico”, comenta Justin.
El TVL 3000-II DW de Elation Professional cuenta con 12x LED Warm White de 3-vatios (temperatura de color 3.200°K) y 12x LED Cool White de 3-vatios (temperatura de color 5.000°K), para un total de 72-vatios.
Entre sus características también destaca su diseño insonoro y la inclusión de lentes intercambiables de 10°, 25°, 40° y 60° de apertura.

Este diseño de iluminación a cargo de Justin Garrone y la empresa Innovative Show Design también ha contado con la colaboración de CYM Lighting Services, empresa encargada de suministrar el material de iluminación.
Kevin Swank, de CYM Lighting Services, comenta: “El rango de productos de Elation Professional ha sido el idóneo para este proyecto”.
“Los productos de Elation solían ser valorados por su precio competitivo, pero a día de hoy la calidad también es excelente manteniendo además unos precios muy atractivos. La gama de productos de Elation rivaliza con la de cualquier otro fabricante y ninguno de los 100x aparatos de Elation instalados en el estudio han dado problema alguno”.

Justin finaliza: “Creo que tanto el precio como la calidad de los productos de Elation proporcionan a los diseñadores de iluminación los recursos necesarios para llevar a buen puerto sus proyectos e instalaciones. El extenso catálogo de productos de iluminación de Elation me ha permitido elegir y especificar aparatos muy variados, con cada uno de ellos cumpliendo la función exacta que yo necesitaba para este proyecto”.

Known as America’s Digital Goddess, Kim Komando helps people across the U.S. and Canada understand all things digital on The Kim Komando Show, broadcast live each weekend on nearly 500 stations by the WestStar TalkRadio Network and streamed to a growing online audience.
The popular technology talk show is now airing from a new modern facility in Phoenix outfitted with over 100x LED lighting fixtures from Elation Professional and sister company Acclaim Lighting.

Scenic and lighting production design firm Innovative Show Design (ISD) was contacted about the need for a new lighting scheme by a Kim Komando team that had clearly put some thought into lighting concept ideas, even coming to the table with its own lighting renderings.
ISD subsequently designed, installed and programmed a new all-LED lighting system, working closely with lighting vendor CYM Lighting Services.
ISD also designed, built and installed a new set, which meant they came onboard early enough to consult on important lighting-related matters like the electrical design of the studio as well as designed the on-air graphic package and all scenic graphics.

Whether it’s smartphones, tablets, computers, the Internet, or anything else digital, The Kim Komando Show covers it.
On the air since 1992 and previously streaming from a smaller WestStar MultiMedia Entertainment complex in Phoenix, the show has aired from the new studio since October 9th.
“With the design of the new complex and new studio, everything was thought through in order to bring the show to a network caliber,” stated Innovative Show Design lighting designer Justin Garrone. “Because her show is about all things technical, gadgets and gizmos, from the very beginning it was very important to incorporate a high level of tech into the lighting design. This is the reason the choice was made to light the entire studio with LED lighting. The energy cost savings with LED, including the cost benefit of being able to run the air conditioning at a lower level, as well as the reduced maintenance, was an added perk.”

The Elation LED lighting is located throughout the complex with the majority of fixtures used in the main studio set, which is made up of three areas: Kim’s broadcast desk, a screen caller area, and an area designed for future use, perhaps social media interaction.
The lighting consists of Elation SixBar 1000 LED battens, SixPar 200 LED PAR color changers, Colour Chorus 12 LED battens, Colour 5 Profile ellipsoidal spots, DW Fresnel dynamic white light fixtures, Elar Q1compact Par lights, and TVL 2000-II and TVL 3000-II DW white light LED fixtures.

Justin worked closely with set designer Chris Runnells of Innovative Show Design to incorporate the lighting elements into the set itself.
“He and I designed the set and the lights at the same time,” Justin explains. “This allowed for the set to practically light itself. There are a lot of light boxes, internal glowing elements and architectural lighting features.”

With eight HD cameras in the studio, lighting fixtures with color rendering levels sufficient for broadcast were required.
“Colour Reproduction Index (CRI) was very important to me,” says Justin, who was impressed with the high CRI levels of the Elation fixtures, which are all above 85.
“I really didn’t want to have to start color correcting LED’s to pull certain color wavelengths out of them. The fixtures from Elation met and exceeded my expectations.”

Needing a fixture he could shutter, Justin turned to the Colour 5 Profile to fill the role. The ellipsoidal spot’s added lime green LED enhances the production of variable white color temperatures from 3,200°K to 6,500°K while increasing also the CRI.
“The Colour 5 Profile has a nice white light and the lime green LED helps get white in your chosen color temperature,” he says of the fixture, which is used to light the show’s intro and all of the stand-up locations.

Illuminating graphics behind Kim Komando’s desk in even washes of colored light are Colour Chorus 12 LED battens, while TVL 3000-II DW fixtures with dynamic white LEDs are used for backlight and front-fill in all areas.
The white light TVL 3000-II luminaires blend 3-watt warm white and cool white LEDs for a uniform projection of flat white light and also fulfill the high CRI requirement.
Justin comments, “They are a nice and compact fixture with no fan so are very quiet. The lens kit gives us the flexibility to project a narrow beam angle or we can flood it out.”

Not only is the main studio lit with Elation and Acclaim lighting but a radio control room, also used for broadcast, as well as two insert studios within the complex, are lit with all Elation and Acclaim fixtures.
The Acclaim Quad Eyes are used to color-ceiling tiles in the radio control room and are also used to color walls in the insert studios.
“I feel that both the cost and the quality of the Elation fixtures allow a designer to get what they need to get the job done,” Justin says.
“Elation has an extensive product line that allowed me to spec fixtures for specific purposes, fixtures that do exactly what I wanted them to do.”

Although Justin made the fixture choice for the studio, he collaborated with CYM Lighting Services, a full service lighting production company that ISD has had a relationship with for over 10 years.
“I don’t consider it working with CYM, I consider it partnering,” Justin comments. “They are our chosen lighting vendor no matter where the show is located. There are not too many people out there that answer their phone 24/7, and trust me there are times I take full advantage of that. Their support, input and overall customer service is, in my opinion, the best in the business.”

CYM Lighting is very familiar with both Elation products and personnel, having stocked Elation gear for over 10 years.
“Elation was perfect for this project,” states CYM Lighting’s Kevin Swank.
“And being able to arrange product demos for ISD at the Elation headquarters in Los Angeles helped Justin get comfortable with the new fixtures. ”
“Elation often used to be chosen because of the lower cost but now the quality is also excellent and the pricing is still spot on. Their products stand up to any others and we didn’t have one problem out of the box on this project. But given all that, what makes Elation unique is the staff, which is the reason why we look closer at their products. From small to big projects, you get the same excellent level of service. On this project, we had a huge benefit from Elation personnel pointing us in the right direction and their recommendations really paid off.”

Justin reports that Kim Komando show personnel have been impressed with the new lighting system and are planning to add more Elation gear.
“We are not 100% complete with the project as they want to add more lighting elements to pop the set even further,” he says.
“This has really been an exciting project for us. This was our first time working with The Kim Komando Show and it has been an absolute pleasure working with Kim and her team.”
