Litepanels Illuminate Iolani Palace

For the PBS special Na Mele: Na Lani Eha, PBS Hawaii recorded a number of musical performances that took place inside Iolani Palace, the only royal palace in the United States. PBS senior production technician Glenn Yamamoto used three HD broadcast cameras, a jib, a dolly and a range of LED fixtures from Litepanels.

“Each performance was recorded live,” Yamamoto explains. “We shot in three rooms of the Iolani Palace with a total of five different setups. The lighting challenge for each setup was to highlight the musical talent but still showcase each unique location. We were able to accomplish all of this using only our four Litepanels 1x1s, a single Sola 6 and three MicroPros.
