The Building Block for Your Next Great Idea

Chroma Single is the perfect choice when a pop of color is just what’s needed.  Available in X1 width (one row wide), Chroma Single is assembled with 120 emitters per meter (8 mm spacing), 10 mm wide, and available in four individual colors: Red, Green, Blue, or Amber/Yellow. Not sure what color to choose? Then Chroma RGB will allow you to paint the town red . . . or teal.  This LiteRibbon is a 3-in-1 emitter with red, green, and blue on a single chip, available in two densities (60 and 72 emitters per meter), as well as two distinct widths (X1 and X6 [six rows wide]).  If that’s not enough color for you, then Chroma RGBA (Red, Green, Blue, Amber) will expand your pallet.  This 4-in-1 chip is available in X1 and has 72 emitters per meter. Chroma-CorrectTM is a proprietary LiteRibbon designed specifically for those with an eye on blending color with high-CRI white light.  This custom 4-in-1 chipset is populated with RGB emitters and a color-correct Tung- or Day-white emitter.


Choosing the Best Sizes for Your Next Project

If the desired type of light is linear, X1, X2, or X3 are great choices. These provide light output that is sharp and cuttable in one direction but softer in the other. In contrast, the size of X6 provides a less linear output and is a great choice to achieve pools of light. The choice between X1, X2, X3, or X6 comes down to the amount of surface area your project requires. LiteRibbon not only comes in these 4 distinct widths, but there are many lengths to choose from as well.  Rolls of LiteRibbon start as long as 5 meters and scale all the way down to 2.6 inches, depending on the type of LiteRibbon.

Available Widths of LiteRibbon Chroma
When it comes to Chroma, we believe in keeping it simple.  Single, RGB, RGBA, and Chroma-Correct only come in full rolls and typically just X1 width.  We did sneak in an X6 version of RGB for those times when size matters.


More Light vs. Less Light…Creating the Effect You Want

Low Density — 60 Emitters per Meter
When more subdued light is required, low-density 60 provides an unmistakably soft light.  At 60 emitters per meter, it produces beautiful, soft light without the need for diffusion filters.  When a delicate and sourceless light is required, low density is recommended because it spreads the LEDs out over a larger area creating a softer light.

High Density — 120 Emitters per Meter
Punch — that’s how to describe high-density 120.  This powerhouse LiteRibbon provides all the light possible for its physical size.  Great for any situation that calls for the output to go to “eleven.”

High Density — 72 Emitters per Meter
Saturated color that packs a punch — that’s how we see Chroma 72.  With dozens of RGB options and densities to choose from, 72 emitters per meter meets the everyday needs of the cinema and television industry perfectly.  Not too little and not too much . . . just right.

High Density — 84 Emitters per Meter
All the benefits of Chroma 72 but in a tighter and more intense package.  Often used in extrusions or as set decorations, Chroma 84 allows for more light and smoother color transitions when used behind a diffuser.

Practical Applications For Any Location

Build-It-Yourself Fixtures
LiteRibbon Chroma is a product with hundreds of uses. One of these is making custom flat-panel lighting fixtures. LiteRibbon Chroma can be assembled in an array on a thin, lightweight panel of nearly any shape or size. You can then use it as a handheld fill or flood in a tight spot. Or you could wrap LiteRibbon Chroma around a tube and place it inside a pole-mounted, battery-operated Chinese lantern to create an airy, super soft light that will beautifully reproduce skin tones over the full dimmable range. Use LiteRibbon Chroma Correct, and you now add adjustable Kelvin temperature too. Combine LiteRibbon Chroma products with our best-in-class LiteDimmer Chroma, and your next great idea is waiting to happen.

Automobile Interiors
Perhaps LiteRibbon’s most appealing use is within the interior of a vehicle. It is here that nearly all of its advantages are fully realized. Flexibility allows it to conform to irregular shapes. Cuttability allows just the right amount of light in just the right location of the vehicle. Dimmability lets you easily fine-tune the output especially during magic hour when the available light is rapidly changing. Adding our DMX controls allows LiteRibbon to serve as a lighting effect for a poor-man’s-process setup.

Practical Locations
When shooting at a practical location, LiteRibbon has many uses and advantages over traditional lighting gear. Due to its lightweight, miniature size and adhesive backing, LiteRibbon is the most low-impact form of lighting available. Capable of being installed under kitchen cabinets and controlled by a LiteDimmer with a small battery placed inside the cabinet, the homeowner will never know you were there. Whether boosting daylight/tungsten or creating a subtle under-cabinet color wash at night, you are sure to have as much (or as little) controllable, low-impact, color-correct light as needed.
