Chroma-Q Space Force Fixture Provides Powerful Soft Lighting for Marjan Television Network Studios


The award-winning Chroma-Q® Space Force™ fixture has been selected to provide powerful soft lighting for the studios of Wimbledon, London-based Marjan Television Network – one of the leading broadcasters to the Persian-speaking world with over 25 million viewers.

Marjan, which has just completed a major refurbishment of its studio lighting infrastructure, broadcasts a wide range of entertainment programmes to viewers across the globe. These include Persian-language versions of well-known British favourites such as The X Factor, Come Dine With Me and Spitting Image, as well as producing several hours per day of live output programming from its studios.

Amongst the various technical requirements for the studio upgrade, Marjan wanted a powerful yet energy-efficient white soft light which could deliver a high quality output with good colour rendition on camera.

The award-winning Chroma-Q Space Force was ideal for the studio lighting, having an output of up to 26,700 lumens with controlled colour temperature from 2,800K to 6,500K, and a CRI / TLCI of up to 97.

Despite weighing in at only 8kg, it has an internal ballast and passive cooling (no fans), which renders it very quiet in use. Like other Chroma-Q fixtures, it has variable PWM which gives it flicker-free operation, and it can be wirelessly controlled.

The studio facilities also feature the Chroma-Q Color One 100X™ RGBA LED PAR, to provide colour-mixing lighting effects during broadcasts.

The Chroma-Q fixtures were supplied by UK dealer, A.C. Entertainment Technologies Ltd (AC-ET)
