Atlantic Illumination Entertainment Lighting

Purchase Guide


Colour media is the blanket term for that which is placed into a light
beam in order to colour, or colour-correct it. Other related products
which do not colour the beam are also included in the general category
of "Colour Media". Atlantic Illumination sells these colour products
as well as others which include reflection, diffusion, and polarizing.

Colour Media is called "gel"; this comes from the word "gelatin" -- a
colour medium developed in the early 1900s. No longer made, the term
has lived on in its most popular current form, the polyester sheet.
Yet, polyester is not the only material used to alter a light beam.
