Post Production Suite Lighting
 
1 Attachment(s)
Hey, I had a question. Does anybody know what these lights are called (the ones in the photo)? I've worked in that studio many years ago and I really liked the mood they generated. The lights were small spot lights, also dimmable and I would like to have them at my place.

Sorry I wasn't able to get bigger photo.

Any help is much appreciated.

The actual lamps (or "bulbs") themselves appear to be halogen parabolic reflectors. They're pretty common, not difficult to find. Really nice incandescent glow, great workspace lighting. They do get very hot though.

They don't use the standard threaded sockets that are directly connected to 110AC. They're usually 12V (I think) and use transformers. You can see the transformers in your photo, mounted on the track. They're included with the lighting systems as an integral part.

I don't know anything about those specific fixtures, but you can go onto any website that sells lighting supplies and find all sorts of fixtures like that.

They are called low voltage pendent lights and AMAZON has pages and pages of them.https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_s...=2GN7XHPKE6UU1

In case the OP is still looking.

be careful with transformer based lighting in your editing suite. If you install incorrectly or have low quality lights you can induce hum into your sound system when dimmed. When I've set these types of lights up I aways have them on their own circuit and make sure everything is well grounded.

And now, there are many more LED bulbs available to fit these older non-standard sockets. I like getting everything in 3000K color temp - pretty close to a halogen look and WAY cooler temps. Dimming is interesting - usual filament bulb will color shift warmer as you dim. LEDs do not. I really like them in tracks and are lasting a lot longer. And no dimmer buzz.
