To stop the whispers: silencing HMI noise
by Marc Galerne (K5600 Lighting)

Lighting and Power Equipment

Following our discussions at the Satis and AFC Micro Salon shows, six members of the AFSI (French association of sound recordists) came to us, so that we could shed light on the issue of the noise made by HMI light sources.
Since we had to start somewhere, we proposed a meeting on our premises, so as to glean great ideas for future development. We therefore borrowed some used K5600 units from our rental house customers, as well as ballasts from different manufacturers, and brand new bulbs.
