At the Bench: The Light Bridge CRLS Reflectors

The Light Bridge has introduced the CRLS, Cine Reflect Lighting System. The system includes a series of C-Reflectors with various levels of diffusion applied to them. The CRLS can be used to create different lighting effects from a single lighting source. Any Fresnel, from a small tungsten lamp to a Leko, can be used with the CRLS.

The C-Reflectors have very high light efficiency transfer (97%) and 100% color rendition, so they can be used in a host of lighting set ups. They are ideal for situations where it is not practical to use high-output lighting sources. The reflectors are available in a variety of sizes, and they can be used in conjunction with each other for layering. For example, a large reflector can be deployed to create an overall lighting effect, while smaller reflectors with another reflective quality can be used to highlight or accent a portion of the frame.

In this blog, I take a look at how to build the system and then create various lighting effects. For even more on the CRLS, watch the interview I did with The Light Bridge at NAB 2019 and view their product demo.
