iOS App developer Andrew Derrington is at it again. He has been hard at work on his third lighting app for the iOS platform, Lighting Calculator. Some of his other iOS apps include the Lighting Handbook and the Electrical Formulas app. I know what you are thinking, these apps seem to be the same thing just different titles. You might be wrong there.
Take a look at what the Lighting Calculator app has to offer.
Beam Angle Calculator:
• Required Lens – Provide the distance and desired beam size and the app will tell you what size lens you’l need.
• Beam Diameter – Provide the distance and lens angle and the app will tell you how big a pool of light you’ll have.
•Throw Distance – Provide the beam size and lens angle and the app will tell you how far a throw is required.
Gobo Projection Calculator:
• Image Size – Provide the app with the gobo image size and throw distance, select the lantern your using and it will provide the projected image size.
• Gobo Size -Provide your desired projected Image size and throw distance, select the lantern your going to use and it will provide you with the gobo image size you need. – Handy when designing your gobo’s!
All measurements are available in Metric and Imperial, and more lanterns will be added regularly. In time a database covering over 500 lamps both conventional and moving lights will be added for easy selection and reference.
