A Spectral Database of Commonly Used Cine Lighting

In recent years, multiple methods have been published that describe how to estimate the spectral response of a camera system or object reflectance spectrum. These methods are becoming increasingly important for the color processing pipeline in movie productions. Knowing the spectral power distribution of light sources used in a movie production is essential for a spectral based approach to ensure a correct color reproduction in movie data creation. We present a thoroughly documented data set of spectral power distributions of typical film and TV lighting. The data set can be used to create more precise camera characterizations and help to develop spectral color processing pipelines. Furthermore, the spectral power distribution data set can be employed to detect and validate over-aged or damaged lighting, by comparing their spectra to our reference measurement.
