Gekko Adds High-Brightness To IBC

News Image
A developer of lighting systems, products and accessories are adding to their family of products at this years IBC show.
New to its range of LED-based video and film lighting equipment, Gekko Technology are introducing a soft light designed for studio and location use. The karesslite 6006-DD has twice the number of emitters and hence twice the brightness of the existing karesslite 6006. Available in daylight (5600K), tungsten (3200K) versions, it incorporates a 6 x 12 emitter format in a 300 x 300 mm panel with a front-to-back depth of 165 mm and a weight of 4.8 kg including diffuser.
"The 6006-DD is as compact and portable as the 6006 yet delivers the same 2600 lux at 1 metre brightness as the 600 x 300 mm karess 6012," commented Gekko Technology Managing Director David Amphlett. "It can be used as a single soft light source or deployed with additional karesslites to form a large multiple light source. Unlike traditional lighting products, colour temperature remains consistent throughout the full range of intensity variation. The light output is smooth and can be used either as a primary source or as fill."
Power can be derived from a single V-lock battery, a 12 to 40 V DC feed via an XLR 4 connector, or from a mains supply. Being LED-based, the karesslite 6006-DD is far more efficient than traditional film or video production lights and emits very little heat. Power consumption is 85 W, allowing more than 90 minutes of continuous operation from a single rear-mountable V-Lock battery.
Flexible control is a feature of Gekko's karesslite series, on-board dimming as well as integrated DMX are incorporated. An integral diffusion grating makes the output single-source with minimal light loss, and two egg crate options can be utilised to make the source more directional.
Accessories available include a Gekko swivel mount, yoke, encapsulated colour-correction gel sets, removable barndoors, honeycomb louvers, remote dimmer and soft transit case.
