Television and Film

"It is an exciting time to design lighting for television: cameras and lights keep getting amazingly better, so our work looks better. And there are more channels that need programs, so we have more opportunities for work.

- Lighting Designer and Director of Photography, John Gates

Television and Film Lighting and Rigging

Throughout our history, Barbizon Lighting has been at the forefront of television and film technology. In our early days we were instrumental in introducing tungsten-halogen lamps to the entertainment industry. Today, we are helping our customers stay on the leading edge by offering efficient lighting solutions that feature the latest in LED lighting fixtures. To compliment these power efficient lighting heads, we are helping our clients implement “dimmer-less” studios designed around distributed data and power relay systems.

New Light Initiative

In order to stay at the forefront, Barbizon has developed the New Light Initiative, a group of employees committed to providing the most cost effective and environmentally friendly studio solutions that meet the latest LEED requirements and building recommendations. The New Light Initiative team’s goal is to implement sustainable practices into every Barbizon operation. As we initiate the latest environmentally friendly solutions in our practices, we also educate the theater and film industry. Barbizon actively promotes energy efficient solutions that meet your lighting system requirements.

As always, Barbizon continues to offer more traditional lighting, rigging and expendable items for the TV and film world.

KLVX - PBS - Las Vegas, NV


KLVX - PBS - Las Vegas, NV

The Las Vegas PBS Education Technology Campus became the first broadcast facility in North America to attain LEED Gold Certification. General Manager Tom Axtell’s vision did not happen overnight.  His team put years of effort into creating the facility that houses KLVX and the Clark County School District’s Virtual High School. 

Lighting Systems Integrator Barbizon Light of the Rockies was given clear direction from PBS Production Manager Dave Molinaro; provide system with complex capabilities, simple operation and most importantly utilizing energy efficient technology.  Barbizon used this direction to design lighting and rigging systems for two Production Studios, four Virtual Classroom Studios and a Science Classroom Studio. 

At the heart of the system, ETC’s SENSOR dimming and ION Control Consoles provided the functionality and ease of operation required.  ETC Source4 ellipsoidals, many equipped with Seachanger profile and wash dichroic color mixing systems, Desisti DELUX Fluorescents, CDM Fresnels and lamped down Tungsten Fresnels provide a versatile compliment of low power consumption fixtures.  Of special note, ETC’s Selador VIVID-R, 7-color LED fixtures were used to light the 18’H x 160’W cyclorama in Studio B.  Producer Mark Williams uses the color-picker feature on the ION console to instantly change the color on the cyc, a task that used to take hours in a lift swapping out gel. 

The Vegas PBS staffs enjoy the comfort and environmentally responsible aspects of their facility, and acknowledge the studio as the crowning jewel.  Barbizon congratulates KLVX on their LEED Gold Certification; we are proud to be part of their success!
