Kedo-Sk Single-Colour Focusable LED Hard-Source Comes To IBC

A new addition to Gekko Technology’s range of LED-based television and film production lighting systems is making its European show debut at IBC 2011.
Based on Gekko’s award-winning technology, kedo-sk is a single-colour Fresnel-focused hard source luminaire optimised for the requirements of image capture for both film and broadcast.
Available in either daylight (5600 kelvin) or tungsten (3200 kelvin) variants, kedo-sk produces minimal heat and is designed to work in an ambient temperature of up to 50 degrees Celsius.
Output intensity is comparable with a 1 kilowatt tungsten source. Low power consumption (180 watts) keeps heat generation to a minimum. An integral Fresnel-based optic provides a focal range of 6:1. Intensity can be controlled on the lamp itself or via DMX.
"The everyday reality of production for television and film crews is a requirement for a single colour white light to illuminate the subject,” commented David Amphlett, Gekko Technology’s Founder and Managing Director. “Combining controllable focus and high-quality single colour output in an LED based lamp, the kedo-sk delivers the benefits of resource-friendly technology but in a format which the film and TV world is familiar with.”
Kedo-sk fully complements Gekko’s existing range of lighting equipment. In the right environment, complete LED-based lighting setups can now be deployed, which are more energy-efficient, cooler-running, and have no requirement for consumables, whilst still being comparable to more traditional forms of lighting in terms of output.
Gekko is located at stand 11.D40 at IBC2011, Amsterdam, 9-13 September.
