Combining vertical and horizontal lighting
Video conferencing is a highly useful technology for personal discussions over long distances. A decisive factor for successful communication is good facial illumination. Modern camera systems are light-sensitive, but with high contrast ratios on faces or between the face and background for example, they reach their limits. The ideal lighting solution is a combination of wallwashers and horizontal general lighting.
Added value of combining vertical and horizontal lighting:
- good facial illumination
- uniform distribution of brightness for automatic camera settings
- good spatial depth effect.
