VHO Pro LiteRibbon LED™

Introducing VHO Pro LiteRibbon LED™

The new VHO Pro LED LiteRibbon is the simplest color correct lighting product available. Years in the making, just 3 simple components make this minimal light source created exclusively for cinema and tv production. At its core, the new VHO Pro LED emitters are a design breakthrough. We have created a beautiful, full spectrum, white light that renders skin-tones and colors to their natural state. VHO Pro emitters are fully color-correct and blend freely with legacy tungsten and fluorescent units as well as modern high-end LED fixtures from Arri, Mole Richardson and others. VHO Pro emitters are the first LEDs to bring high CRI, full spectrum color-correct white light to what we call low-output LED products. Typically reserved for high wattage and high cost LED fixtures, the new VHO Pro line brings color-correct white light into the affordable range.

Genuine VHO Pro LiteRibbon™ is available in 24 variations. There are TWO densities, Hard 120 and Soft 60. FOUR widths, single, double, triple and six rows wide. And, THREE colors of full-spectrum white, Tungsten, Daylite, and tunable-white Hybrid.

LiteRibbon™ is made of color-correct, genuine VHO Pro emitters mounted to a white backing material that is flexible, cuttable and adhesive backed.

Make no mistake about it. Our color-correct, VHO “Pro” LED LiteRibbon™ is a design breakthrough

VHO Pro X3

VHO Pro emitters have been specifically formulated to render skin-tones beautifully. Their wide-angle output, combined with their ultra-low power consumption allows for precise control of daylight or tungsten balanced light in previously impossible areas of the set or prop or wardrobe project. Digital cinema cameras are finally living up to their promise of using less light without loss of image quality. At the same time, they are more sensitive than ever to low-CRI or poor quality white light. That’s why precise low output control of beautiful, full spectrum white light is more important than ever. VHO Pro Tungsten and Daylite produce full-spectrum color-correct light with a 120º output at only 0.16 watts each!

Available in two densities, VHO Pro HARD “120” and SOFT “60”

120-60

VHO Pro LiteRibbon™ is available in two densities. Hard, high-density 120 and soft, low-density 60. VHO 120 provides a concentrated, slightly “hard” output at about 1.5 watts per square inch. When specifying an intense light source for a small area, VHO 120 is a great choice. When more subdued light is required, VHO 60 provides an unmistakable soft light output. Clocking in at just 0.37 watts per square inch, it produces beautiful soft light without the need for diffusion filters. Both the hard 120 and soft 60 offer a wide-angle output with graceful, tapered edges and a perfectly even field.

If applying LED LiteRibbon™ to an automobile interior headliner, choose the harder VHO 120 to augment the dome light. The smaller but more powerfull output will yield a nice, directional, and believable output. Conversely, to provide a soft and subtle overhead feel, VHO 60 is recommended. Because it spreads the LED emitters out over a larger area, a softer light output is created. This is a great way to provide a delicate and sourceless overhead light.

Genuine VHO Pro LiteRibbon™ is the only color-correct, Daylite or Tungsten balanced ribbon available. Other similar products claim “high-CRI” or “no-green,” but pale in comparison to VHO Pro’s full-spectrum color rendering.

Available in four widths, VHO Pro X1, X2, X3, and X6

VHO Pro 120-X1, X2, X3 and X6

Single wide “X1” features a solitary row of emitters while double wide “X2” offers a twin row. Completing the line is the triple wide “X3” and six wide “X6”. All four are available in the hard, high-density 120 as well as the softer, low-density 60 in either 3200k Tungsten, 5600k Daylite, or tunable Kelvin temperature Hybrid White.

If the desired type of light is linear, VHO 120’s X1, X2 or X3 are a great choice. These provide light output that is sharp and cuttable in one direction but softer in the other. In contrast, VHO 60 supplies a noticeably softer output when in both horizontal and vertical directions. The choice of which “X” to use comes down to the amount of surface area your project requires.

Available in three colors, Tungsten, Daylite, and Hybrid LiteRibbon LED™

VHO Pro Tungsten provides an incandescent-like color that appears warm to the eye and to the camera. Performing at 3200º K and 95 CRI, VHO Tungsten is named for the metallic element that has been commonly associated with incandescent lighting. It beautifully mixes with legacy tungsten and halogen light sources but dims without Kelvin temperature shift.

VHO Pro Daylite provides mid-day, sun-like hues that can be used to boost available daylight without the use of filters. Performing at 6000º K and 95 CRI, VHO Daylite is named for the industry term used for other color-correct technologies like fluorescent and HMI. It has more in common with these other technologies than its name. VHO Daylite has been designed to match color and spectrum making it easy to openly mix light sources and lighting technologies.

VHO Pro Hybrid provides all the benefits of VHO Tungsten and Daylite along with the range of Kelvin temperatures between 3200ºK and 6000ºK. This obvious advantage allows your LiteRibbon™ package or kit to always provide the required white-balance without the need for filters. When used with our LiteDimmer Hybrid, you get granular control of Kelvin temperature along with master brightness and with its low-mode, it is possible to achieve ultra-precise low-light level control.

Practical Uses as Build-It-Yourself Fixtures

Feature Film - The Master

LiteRibbon™ is a product with hundreds of uses. One of these is custom lighting flat panel fixtures. LiteRibbon™ can be assembled in an array on a thin, lightweight panel of nearly any shape or size you need and used as a hand-held fill or flood in a tight spot. Or you could wrap LiteRibbon™ around a tube and placed inside a pole-mounted, battery operated chinese lantern to create an airy, super soft light that will reproduce beautiful skin tones over the full dimmable range. Use VHO Hybrid and you now add adjustable Kelvin temperature too. Combine VHO Pro LiteRibbon™ LED products with our best-in-class LiteDimmer controls, and it is your next great idea.

Practical Uses in Automobile Interiors

Image: Independent Feature Film - El Cielo es Azul.

Perhaps LiteRibbons most appealing use is within the interior of a vehicle. It is here that nearly all of it advantages are fully realized. Flexibility allows it to conform to irregular shapes. Cut-ability 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 automated controls allow LiteRibbon™ to serve as lighting effects for poor-mans-process setups.  Image: Independent Feature Film – El Cielo es Azul. 

Practical Uses at Practical Locations

Sterling Residence

When shooting at a practical location, LiteRibbon has many uses and advantage 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 powered by a LiteDimmer and a small battery placed inside the cabinet, the home owner will never know you were there. Whether boosting daylight or creating a subtle under-cabinet glow at night, you are sure to have as much (or as little) controllable, low-impact, color-correct light as needed.  Image: Sterling Residence
