INTRODUCTIONFor over 40 years, Unilux has been the name for Strobe Lighting in the film commercial business. Unilux lighting systems make it possible to shoot subjects in motion with incredible clarity. Each frame is a clear, sharp photograph.
Unilux lights are most effective for shooting objects that pour, spritz, pop or splash. The lights flash for fractions of seconds, providing a cool atmosphere for shooting icy or perishable objects.
Unilux lights can synchronize with cameras like Arri, Panavision, Aaton, Photosonics 4ER and Mitchell. Some cameras may require modification to interface with Unilux lights. Unilux can provide technical assistance in modifying a camera of your choice to operate with Unilux lighting.
ColorThe lights' color temperature is 6000°K. Unilux strobe lights can be color corrected by using an 85 or 85-B gel, or the lab can be advised to color correct.
OperationIn the preview mode, Unilux lights flash at a consistent rate that appear to your eye as constant light. Exposure reading is taken while lights are in preview mode. When the camera starts running, the lights flash in sync with the camera shutter, exposing each frame for 1/100,000 of a second. For rotating mirror reflex cameras, the lights flash at twice the rate of the camera speed, one flash for your eye and the other for the film, so you can see what you're shooting.
Unilux lighting exposes each frame separately. So whether you're at normal speed or high speed you can be sure that every splash, crunch and bubble is crystal clear.
ExposureThis ensures a crisp, sharp picture at all camera speeds. Exposure time of each flash is 1/100,000 of a second.
