March 20th, 2013

For the last five years, Devlin Design Group and Brightline have successfully combined their expertise, bringing together contemporary scenic design and innovative, energy- efficient lighting to produce a series of landmark broadcast installations. No other approach to date has delivered the same level of client success in a turn-key scenic solution.

To complement and enhance the hot new look of electronic set trends in their scenic designs, DDG is using Brightline BL.16 LED fixtures with daylight-equivalent 5600 degree Kelvin LED cartridges for their projects, including their latest installations at WKEF, WICS, WZTV and KPAX.

With a round set approach, as DDG developed for WTMJ, Milwaukee, there are wide and high walk-through set areas with electronic display backgrounds.  Many of DDG’s sets now feature large monitor walls, which require special attention to lighting design.   DDG’s sets are also enriched in their video result through the 5600 degree Kelvin lighting, provided by Brightline. The recommended combination of lighting is to blend high color rendering daylight fluorescent Brightlines for fill and modeling, while utilizing Brightline BL.16 LED fixtures with daylight cartridges for spotlights that serve as the news anchors’ key and back light.

DDG’s extensive use of LED color-mixing results in a rich scenic look.  Some sets require over 150 channels of lighting control, with 30 to 40 of the channels of LED lighting being utilized for set color-changing.  The resulting matrix of color produces vibrant and customizable backgrounds for on-air production.

DDG has earned an unparalleled 27 year track record in the broadcast industry by providing its clients with the right tools for visual storytelling in bold and exciting new ways.  From expansive video walls and large touch screens, to intimate user friendly contemporary settings, DDG creates dynamic, trendsetting environments that capture the viewer’s attention and imagination.

Brightline has dedicated the last fifteen years to bringing high-performance, energy-efficient lighting systems to the global Broadcast and Videoconferencing markets.  By providing extremely high quality, cost effective, and environmentally responsible lighting solutions, Brightline helps its customers maximize the efficiencies of diverse technologies and thus realize the full potential of their own visual communications endeavors.

A Shining Light for All Seasons — Brightline Introduces three new stars

coming this Summer @ InfoComm 2012 in Las Vegas, Nevada

BRIDGEVILLE,PA–Have an issue with your video image?
Issue resolved: Visit www.brightlines.com or see Brightline at # N1825, InfoComm 2012 in Las Vegas this June!

Brightline has always been a solutions company, evolving their energy-conscious lighting products to meet market specific needs. Often market desires are evident before the technology exists to responsibly create and deliver adequate options. Therefore, this year’s InfoComm Exhibit is particularly rewarding for Brightline, as they debut three new lighting solutions.

No doubt the market is eager for LED technology that provides adequate intensity and color for optimized video camera rendering, and now Brightline delivers the BL.16–16 Energy-Star LEDs in a small footprint that replicates the founding SeriesONE look. Not just the fixture bodies, but the accessories complement SeriesONE as well, with mini control screens and snoots that slide into Brightline’s standard and convenient accessory tracks, with the same trustworthy accessory locking system. Now with tungsten and daylight equivalents, facilities can interchange optics and color temperature cartridges, and mix their LED and fluorescent Brightlines, ensuring continuity of their physical and video aesthetics.

Brightline specializes in video lighting. Over the last decade, clients have arranged for their general room lighting while Brightline recommended a correlating color temperature for the task lights. Not a bad compromise for video but potentially a compromised ceiling-look. Architects and end-users alike will rejoice, along with their solutions providers, to learn that Brightline brings to market the VideoPlus, a sleek combination video AND task light, both in the same retro-stylish, high-end, energy-efficient, linear Brightline light. Ideal for 6-inch ceiling installations, the VideoPlus can be supplied in continuous runs of 4-foot increments.

All ceilings are not created equal, so why should all T-Series lights be? Meet the Micro-T by Brightline–the newest member of the globally-installed, patented T-Series family. The Micro-T brings the same technological advancements of T-Series to a linear 6-inch by 24-inch and 6- inch by by 48-inch fixture profile. (Metric-sized options are available.) The Micro-T provides the reliable and familiar T-Series performance and features in an unfamiliar, yet welcomed, body-size. This Summer, Brightline invites you to try on the slimmed down T-Series–perfect for all those places that the full-sized T-Series just didn’t fit.

Bright Innovation: Smart APP Option from Brightline

BRIDGEVILLE, PA–Sometimes what happens in Vegas, not only doesn’t stay in Vegas, but it spreads globally, and on seldom occasion, it’s such a sensible notion, that its adoption is rapid.

Brightline will be on the InfoComm 2012 floor in its refreshed booth # N1825 filled with fresh,cool lighting solutions.  Control them all through fun and intuitive iPad and iPhone APPS –perhaps less exhilarating as the ka-ching, ka-ching of hitting the Vegas slots, but more likely to ensure savings! This cool new control option complements our existing solutions of full integration to our partner AV control companies like AMX, Crestron, Extron, and Savant.
Long lamp life cycles, reduced electrical lighting & air conditioning costs, and minimized maintenance further ensure a substantial investment return on a Brightline lighting system,
while a Brightline system in itself delivers an optimized media performance that brings its own rewards.

See the latest in high color-rendering LED technology, innovative development for combination video and task lighting delivered from one ceiling-recessed location, and the small footprint offspring of Brightline’s established, patented T-Series technology, all on display this June in Booth # N1825.

Brightline Knows What’s In A Name… brightlines.com re-launches this June for its 15th anniversary!

BRIDGEVILLE, PA–Just a few weeks ago, a leading Emerging Media Strategist was asked,
“What’s pinterest?”
“You DON’T know what it is?  You will.” was her rapid reply.

A few days ago, on May 18th, The Wall Street Journal ran this headline, “$1 Billion Club Gets Crowded Pinterest is Latest Start-Up Hitting Rich Evaluation; Venture Activity Rivals Dot-Com Boom Days

The name is clever.  Pin things of interest, right?  A virtual bulletin board.

And do it digitally and quickly.  So Pinterest is a billion dollar startup because it allows us to share our experiences– likes, dislikes–in a near-instant and transmedia method.  For example, Brightline will be pinning up partner installation photos to share our collective successes in a visual way–open call for your relevant submissions at info@brightlines.com!

The social media field is changing so rapidly that it’s challenging to write about it, none less with auto spell correct not knowing any of the words yet–just as one day, not all that long ago, spellcheck autocorrected the word “Google”.

 

These days, it’s pretty safe to say that most good WSJ headlines are about social media companies like Pinterest.  As the traditional stock market strives to rebound, web companies like Facebook, Groupon , and Zynga are financially, as well as socially, more viable.   And seemingly suddenly, they’re fueling the next generation of web start- ups–fostering their growth …sharing.

 

It’s all about enhancing communication isn’t it?  Effectively sharing information.

Whether it’s Pinterest, Facebook, or Brightline.  Even as Brightline approaches its 15th year, emerging social media platforms are changing the way that it connects with and responds to its customers today.

 

When Brightline’s redesigned website launches in a few weeks, it will feature more social media interfaces, as the company seeks to further embrace its customers and the rapidly-emerging global technology that supports them.

 

The new Brightline site will provide enhanced clarity, as do its energy conscious lighting products, and as does its namesake, a “bright-line rule”—“a clearly defined standard, the purpose of which is to produce predictable and consistent results in its application.”

Consistently make your video communications perfectly clear.
Predictably achieve IESNA lighting standards in all your applications.
And check-in soon for the new www.brightlines.com.
