MediaLight Eclipse 6500K (61 cm) for Computer Monitors
QUESTIONS & ANSWERSAsk a Question
Will this power on/off automatically when the monitor it's plugged into is powered on/off or is it a manual operation each time via the inline controller?
Please see #2 in our FAQ.
Can I buy this Eclipse into a U-shape to be pasted on the back of the monitor if the length is too long for my monitor?
You could, but probably best to cut it to length as intended.
With dual display setups, should both displays have the kit attached? I have two 27" BenQ displays so I'd like to frame the as nicely as possible.
Most put an eclipse on each display unless there is no gap between the displays, then sometimes the Flex or Single Strip is a better option.
My lights are stuck on white. How do I make them change colors?
6500K White Bias Lights are white. I'm sorry if you misread this to be color changing. I can see how that might happen.*
*Actually, I cannot see how that is possible. We've gone to great lengths to explain that these are proper D65 white bias lights.
How to mount them behind monitors..... Is there any standard procedures?
Can with work with iMac?
Yes. You won’t find a better backlight for your iMac.
July 1, 2020: We have a new range of products called MediaLight Mk2 with CRI ≥ 98 (TLCI 99) and a wider range of sizes. The MediaLight Mk2 costs less on a per-meter and accessory basis than the MediaLight Original with better specs. Please check out The MediaLight Mk2 to see if it is a better fit.
Ideal for smaller TV's (up to 42") and computer displays!
The MediaLight Eclipse is 24" long. To give you an example of the size, it is large enough to span a 27" iMac and 24.5" Flanders Scientific CM250. It provides enough light for a 42" TV on a stand (without running from edge to edge).
We created the MediaLight Eclipse in response to our professional colourist friends based on their feedback. First, we built a shorter strip so that no SMD chips were cut or wasted. Next, we replaced the remote with an inline dimmer (it uses the same 240 Hz frequency), which eliminates crosstalk in large studios where our remote was triggering multiple grading bays. Last, we included both a shorter USB cable and a longer 4ft USB extension for those who are using the lights on All-In-Ones and iMacs.
The MediaLight Eclipse does not include an AC adapter.
