Kino Debuts LED Tube Systems At IBC 2018

News Image
Kino Flo Lighting Systems revealed the motion picture and television production industry's first True Match® LED 4Bank, Double and Single portable fixtures during IBC 2018.

Following the debut of the new FreeStyle LED Tube prototypes last winter, the new portable LED Kino Flo systems was on display and is available for purchase post IBC this fall.

The FreeStyle LED Tubes display Kino Flo's award winning True Match® white light and RGBWW color management system found in the FreeStyle 41, 31 and 21 LED portable systems, the Diva-Lite LED video field production lights, and the Celeb 850, 450, 450Q and 250 premium studio softlights.

On camera, FreeStyle LED 4Banks, Doubles, and Singles photograph with the same softness and subtle color reproduction as the award winning Celeb and Diva LED fixtures. In addition to the >96 photo rendering index, cinematographers will see the qualitative difference the new LED fixtures make when lighting faces up close or large spaces from afar.

Paired with a 4Bank, Double or Single fixture's light intensifying reflector, the tube projects soft light forward at a 100° beam angle at about the same light levels you’d get from a 1,000W tungsten softlight. For set design work and lighting in tight areas, the individual FreeStyle LED tubes can be removed from their fixtures and operated as separate light elements. The fixtures, and bare tubes, are lightweight for taping up onto set walls and ceilings.

Outside its fixture, a bare tube glows like a traditional Kino Flo lamp, with light radiating on all sides. The lightweight tubes can be taped to a set wall, customized to form arrays in soft boxes or hung as "ladders" of light for illuminating stage backdrops. A narrow aluminum rail built into each LED lamp expands the mounting options for special lighting designs.

"We have reproduced the soft light quality of our T12 legacy fluorescents," said company president, Frieder Hochheim. "And we have continued to ensure the industry's best quality white light using our own RGBWW (5-emitter) LED's. The consistency of light quality across our product lines and over the years is a technical and artistic standard customers can rely on."
