Proper lighting can drastically improve your live streams, virtual meetings, and broadcasts from home. Seeing clear facial expressions is one way to make life seem a little less socially distant these days.
Simple studio lighting offers big bang for the buck.
We offer home studio lighting kits that are affordable and easy-to-use. We rent and sell a variety of home studio equipment — choose whichever option best suits your needs. And if you’re not sure, simply contact us for help.
What kind of power is required?
The fixtures plug in to standard wall outlets. Each kit includes 15′ extension cords and a power strip.
Do the lights get hot?
The fixtures use LED technology, not lamps. They may get warm, but operate much cooler than light fixtures which use lamps.
How do I mount the lights at the proper height?
We include adjustable stands with each kit. The stands are light weight and easy to use.
Which light fixtures are included with the kit?
We have a few to choose from and will pick the fixture that suits your needs. This may include Color Kinetics iW Blast 12, Lite Panels Astra Bi-Color, or Rosco Vector CCT LitePad.
All of these fixtures use LED technology and output high quality, soft white light. All of these fixtures have adjustable brightness and color temperature settings.
We’ve chosen lights that are ideally matched for home studio lighting — small, lightweight, easy to use, and ideal for short-throw broadcast applications.
Why do the kits only have 2 lights if your guide below shows 3?
The 2-light kits represent the simplest and most economical option we offer. We can easily expand a kit for you to accomodate backlight, as shown on the guide.
If you’re renting a 2-light kit, use them as key light and fill light, as illustrated on the guide.
What if I want to rent a 3- or 4- light kit?
I'm not in the Los Angeles area. Will you ship?
We often ship rental equipment all over the U.S. However, for the purpose of these simple kits, we’ve priced them below our regular rates and are only offering them at this price for curbside pickup at our facility.
If you’re not able to get to our Los Angeles County location, you might consider purchasing a kit (we sell them) or having us prepare a rental quote for you.
Do I need to commit to a long-term contract?
No. You can rent week-to-week. If you use the kits for less than a week, the weekly rate applies.

A professional-grade luminaire that strikes a balance between high-quality light, eas-of-use, and price. The TVL Softlight DW features (240) cool white and (240) warm white LEDs, enabling you to dial in the color temperature you need (the menu on back of fixtures tells you the color temp).
