I was at the Chicago HD EXPO and talked with PRG Lighting about LED Lighting for film and video. We are always looking for ways to keep our subjects cooler and this is about as cool as you can get and still have the light on! Trisha from PRG Lighting explains some of their lighting configurations in the video below. You can find out more by going to their website PRG Production Resource Group.
