Plasma light is a green light with a super high power efficiency, with a very long-life compared to any light source. Plasma light has no filament, nor does it has electrodes. One of the essential features of plasma light is that it does not emit carbon dioxide. In fact, it is identical to today’s high-speed cinematography and as it is a flicker free, it is seen as better than HMIs lights. Plasma light comes with many varieties which gives the lighting designer the freedom of painting with light. It can be used in lighting green screens, especially if a person wants to mimic outdoor shooting, because it has super high power with less power consumption. It can also play a vital role in shooting for establishing shots which requires lighting sources with very high outputs so plasma light can solve this dilemma easily. It does not also create noise like HMIs lights. Plasma light gives a more natural look than any LED lights with a very high color rendering index of +94. Plasma light can be used as a cool moonlight, which fits with the modes of fantasy films. Plasma is the perfect lighting for a high-speed camera which will revolutionize the language of the visual grammar of cinema
