The new Kino Flo LED Diva and Select Systems, available now at Geronimo Creek!
Kino Flo’s Select and Diva LED 30 and 20 DMX systems were released mid-2016. While these LED systems were originally launched as a white light source with Green/Magenta selection, Kino Flo actually used an RGB emitter to control the Green/Magenta color.
In December, 2016, Kino Flo revealed a new firmware/menu system that harness the full power of their RGBW LED engine. This interface is as intuitive as the ARRI SkyPanel menus.
Those who prefer to work with white light can use the “white menu” that gives the user access to Dimming, Kelvin and Green/Magenta control channels.
Those who want additional features can switch over to the new “color menu”. In the color menu, the Kelvin range travels from 2500K tungsten to 9900K daylight, and Kino Flo has set up a fourth channel called Gels. The Gel channel includes Kino Flo colors to match Candle Flame, Warm White, Cool White, Sodium Vapor, Mercury Vapor, 20K Blue Sky, Green Screen and Blue screen. In addition, there is a range of gels that can be applied to any Kelvin setting. Simply scroll through the menu to choose up to 105 well-known lighting gels.
In the color menu there is also a fifth channel called Hue Angle and sixth channel, Saturation. These two channels behave similar to a traditional color wheel, where you have white light in the center, the Hue angle determines the color along a 360-degree range, and Saturation determines how much color is applied. For example, if a user wants to review the choices, they can set Saturation to 100% and scroll through 360-degrees of color to choose the desired hue, and adjust the Saturation to their liking. Reducing the saturation to “0” will take the settings back to white light.
Kino Flo’s new Select and Diva LED’s also come with standard DMX and wireless DMX (Lumen Radio®), 24VDC input, and universal voltage input 100-230VAC (1.3 Amps at 120U). Geronimo Creek also carries the RatPac Cinetanna Transmitters (Lumen Radio®), which work flawlessly with the Kino Flo Select and Diva systems.
These units are half the weight of a SkyPanel S60-C, thus an excellent choice for on location, narrative or ENG work. The “Diva” units feature an on-board ballast, while the “Select” systems feature a remote ballast. Otherwise, these units are identical.
All units available for rental now at Geronimo Creek!
