The MediaLight Mk2 Series:
Optimal Lighting For Color-Critical Video Viewing Environments

The MediaLight Mk2 Series was developed to provide an accurate, Simulated D65 “dim surround” bias light solution for the most demanding home cinema and professional video editing applications.

The MediaLight Mk2 Flex combines ultra-high CRI and color temperature accuracy with the convenience and portability of a USB-powered LED bias lighting system. Color-stable dimming and instant warmup ensure that your surround light is always on target.

Inaccurate lights = inaccurate image

You painstakingly calibrated your display, so why would you "uncalibrate" it with inaccurate lighting?

The MediaLight was developed by Scenic Labs, the publishers of the Spears & Munsil Benchmark. We realised that nobody was making a decent bias light that was affordable and that offered the high CRI and accurate CCT (correlated color temperature) needed by professional colorists and high-end home cinema hobbyists.

You spend so much time calibrating your display to get everything just so, and the last thing that you want to do is "uncalibrate" it with bad lighting, but inconsistent LED strips with bad color rendering do just that. Errors in ambient lighting result in an incorrect image.

Thanks to our dedicated team, we continue to improve each generation of the MediaLight. Nearly 5 years ago, we offered the first professional-grade LED bias light system, and we've taken it to new heights with our industry-leading 99 CRI MediaLight Pro and ≥ 98 CRI and 99 TLCI MediaLight Mk2 Series.

Get serious about bias lighting

Everything that you need is in the box

It was important to us to make The MediaLight as accurate as possible for professionals while being easy enough for home consumers to install on their TV’s.

You don’t need any tools. There is nothing to solder, no wires to cut, no upsells, and there is nothing more to buy.

●High CRI and Super-High CRI light strips (≥98-99 Ra, depending on the model)

●USB AC Adapter (runs off of the USB port on your display or TV). Eclipse includes a 4ft USB extension

●5V infrared PWM dimmer, compatible with universal remote controllers, IR bridges and blasters

●Infrared Remote control (compatible with universal remotes like Harmony) for all but the Mk2 Eclipse computer monitor model, which includes an in-line dimmer

Every MediaLight light strip, from our inexpensive CRI ≥ 98 Ra MediaLight Mk2 Eclipse to our CRI 99 Ra MediaLight Pro, is covered by the same industry-leading 5-year limited warranty. Our warranty includes everything including accidental damage and theft. The MediaLight is built like a tank, but if something goes wrong, we will fix it promptly.

We make buying a MediaLight Bias Lighting System as easy as installing one. If you want to return it or exchange it for a different model, you have 45 days to give it a test drive.

*MediaLight lightbulbs and desk lamps have a 3 year warranty.

The industry standard in bias lighting

Reference Quality

Our bias lights are custom built to exacting specifications with SMD light emitting diodes of the highest quality and accuracy.

The following features apply to all MediaLight brand Bias Lighting:

•6500K Correlated Colour Temperature
•CRI of up to 99 Ra
•5V USB Powered (can be powered by any TV with a USB port)
•Included PWM dimmer (all but the Eclipse desktop model include a remote control)
•Peel and stick authentic 3M mounting adhesive

ISF Certified for Color Accuracy

Every MediaLight product, from our $32 MediaLight Eclipse for computers to our MediaLight Pro is ISF-Certified for accurate D65 color temperature accuracy and high color rendering index (CRI).  This means that our lights are trusted by professional home theater installers and calibrators for accuracy. 

While some LED manufacturers offer high-CRI LEDs as an option, we view them as must-have feature for reference quality bias lights. We don't offer any products below CRI 98 and our MediaLight Pro rocks CRI 99. With either choice, MediaLight gives you a very natural look, like that of natural sunlight, rather than the "clinical" look of lower quality light sources. 

Our focus is entirely on bias lighting and our MediaLight Bias Lighting Systems are thoughtfully designed to include everything that you need. 

5 Year Limited Warranty

Every component of your MediaLight bias lighting system is covered for 5 years from the date of purchase for every imaginable reason. This is not limited to manufacturer defects. It also covers installation goof-ups, accidental damage and, yes, even theft.

If something happens to your MediaLight, we will either identify the cause and send the necessary replacement parts, or replace the entire unit free of charge (replacement parts or units are sent by standard USPS shipping).

The warranty for MediaLight desk lamps and light bulbs is 3 years.
