Recommended lighting for indoor solutions
Lumen and lux recommendations:
The general lumen recommendation is 30.000 lumen, however this ultimately depends on studio size.
Wherever possible use lux measurements over lumens. Lux provides a much more accurate and realistic image of how much light is needed, and how much light is necessary to produce a good image.
Recommended lux measurements for video analysis:
Hip-height horizontally: 1100-1300 lux
Floor below student: 2300 lux
In setups where sun exposure is unavoidable we recommend to install more lighting towards the door openings to try to eliminate silhouetting, however, as the sun's lux count is significantly higher than what LED lights can produce it's unfeasible to combat silhouetting completely.
Example of common temperature ranges used:
2700K - Homes, Restaurants, Hotel lobbies, Boutiques
3000K - Libraries, Office Areas, Retail Stores
4100K - Showrooms, Bookstores, Office Areas
5000K - Museums, Jewelry Stores, Hospitals
5600K - Used to Simulate Outdoor Conditions
The type of temperature LED you want might depend on the installation.
Anywhere from 3000K - daylight can be used, but 2700-3000K is not uncommon for studios.
Again, depending on the installation, if it's a home studio installation, 2700K - 3000K lighting may be harsher vs a more comfortable daylight temperature.
Panel LED lights
Recommended for semi-outdoors installations, or in installations where a lot of light is required.
Note: Some of these panel lights are meant for illumination applications, and do not produce as a comfortable light as those meant for photo & video usage.
The higher power LED panels do require ventilation and keep in mind they do generate quite a bit of heat.

YellowRiver YR-W0360S(3Wx60PCS Pure White) LED Panels:
Can be purchased upon inquiry, often lead times of 2-3 weeks or more depending on manufacturing times.
Note: We do not support the DMX512 standard, so these lights cannot be dimmed through Swing Catalyst.
Indoor studio lighting
These are continuous lighting meant for photo and video, generally results in more even lighting and is easier on the eyes. Can be mounted on tripods.
Generally not as strong as flood lightning.
Varytec VP-1 DMX Video BiLight Panel (90W):
Includes a diffusing filter (plastic filter that slides on top of the LEDs to diffuse the light), creates a more evenly lit area, but is not as directional as a panel with adjustable barn doors.

Where do I place my lights?
This is a difficult question to answer as it depends on the type of install.
If there is a projector (as pictured below) it may be better with LED spot lights (more narrow beam angle) and focus the light more on the floor & golfer, vs trying to light a larger area of the floor.
As can be seen in the image, the lights are mounted at a 45 degree angle, and slightly steeper in the back, which creates a good illumination pattern, but as a result, the projector is very washed out.
These are important things to think about. We prioritized to illuminate the booth & having a washed out projector; it's difficult to have best of both worlds in this case.

In this case we could easily have two or 3 extra panels in order to get the shutter speed down.
