MediaLight Mega 12v (500 cm strip)
QUESTIONS & ANSWERSAsk a Question
What is the lumens per meter of this 12v strip? Do you plan to market any high-brightness 12v or 24V Mk2 products? The Pro line is out of my budget. I have a Quad XL for my TV already, but I'm looking to add more room ambient lighting.
12v is approximately 850 lm per meter (because of how it is distributed on the strip, we average the lm for individual chips along the strip and then multiply by 150 to calculate the total. 5630 chips are rated for up to 45-50 lm but we down-rate most of our products (bulbs and desk lamps excluded) for stability and longevity.
Yes, we have a 24v version of the Mk2 coming by October 15, 2020. Available in 5m and 10m lengths. Pricing on par with the other Mk2 products but the power supply and dimmer cost a little bit more. Quantities will be limited at launch with more coming a month later. The brightness is not much lower despite the smaller chips. They are more efficient, they are not down rated as much. But because they are not down-rated, we are including a straight PCB (not the S-shaped version). Heat is not an issue with the 5v Mk2.
The MediaLight Mega 12v is our first 12v MediaLight, with male and female adapters for easy daisy chaining. Allowing you to connect up to 3 strips to each AC adapter.
The MediaLight Mega was created in response to the many professional and home theatre customers who asked for a more powerful solution for larger installations involving longer strips. While we were at it, we boosted the CRI to 95 Ra.
The MediaLight Mega 12v DOES NOT RUN ON USB POWER!
The MediaLight Mega 12v includes 5 meters (196 inches) of high-CRI 5730 SMD chips (this SMD chip is new to the MediaLight) chips on a copper PCB, backed with extra-strong 3M VHB adhesive. It also includes a CE approved 12v adapter and an Infrared remote control and dimmer module. You will be able to teach your Harmony remote with the included IR remote. (But there is no easy code on the Harmony remote -- yet).
The MediaLight Mega 12v includes:
- 5 Meters of 95 Ra (high CRI) 5730 SMD Chips (LEDs)
- 12v adapter
- Infrared Dimmer (Harmony Compatible)
- VHB backing throughout (very high bond adhesive, ideal for architectural installations)
- 5 Year Limited Warranty
Some technical notes about this beta version:
The MediaLight Mega 12v is our highest CRI MediaLight to date. At 95 Ra real world/ 98 Fa factory CRI rating (real world measurements taken with a Photo Research PR-670 and Sekonic C-7000).
Due to the higher CRI, partly achieved with the addition of more red phosphors to the SMD chips, some can discern a very slight difference if used in conjunction with our single or twin strips. (My best example is this: Think of what it's like when a single panel of a car body is repaired in an autobody shop. You might not notice it until it is pointed out, but once you see it, it can't be unseen).
The MediaLight Mega 12v sits slightly below 6500K and the twin and single strips sit slightly above 6500K. The difference is +/-150k in either direction.
