News Image
Chauvet has acquired Kino Flo, a leader in LED lighting systems and color science technologies.

Kino Flo is a multi-award-winning manufacturer of lighting systems engineered for cinema and television production.

"This represents an important step for our company in our ongoing mission to expand our broadcast, studio and film lighting capabilities," said Albert Chauvet, CEO of Chauvet. "Kino Flo has a longstanding tradition of innovation and a commitment to excellence, which makes the company an excellent fit with Chauvet’s own philosophy. We are excited to invest in the future of Kino Flo and build on their technologies, while adding resources to accelerate product development and commercialization."

"Based on our shared longstanding commitment to our customers and cultural alignment, I am confident our customers will benefit from our new partnership," said Frieder Hochheim, Founder of Kino Flo, who will continue to lead Kino Flo. "The combined solutions from Kino Flo and Chauvet have limitless possibilities."

Kino Flo will continue to serve its customers from its Burbank, California offices. Founded in 1987, Kino Flo has developed a series of colour technology innovations, and earned an award from the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences for its development of cool, tube-based arrays with color corrected tungsten and daylight balanced light. Kino Flo's LED tubes, light panels and True Match® firmware dovetail with the extensive collection of CHAUVET Professional ellipsoidal, Fresnel, par, cyclorama and special effect fixtures that have become increasingly popular in broadcast applications.

"Our entire team looks forward to bringing Kino Flo’s product line and technology solutions to our global film, broadcast and livestream lighting customers," Chauvet said.
