Kino Flo Releases High Output Soft Lights

Kino Flo has released a new line of wafer-thin, high output soft lights small enough to fit in the palm of your hand but bright enough to light a sound stage.
The BarFly fixtures are available for sale in two slender models: the BarFly 200 (two tubes), and BarFly's operate very much like the Academy Award winning portable 4banks, doubles and singles: the have remote, select high output ballasts and slim, lightweight heads that can work in tight locations where larger, hotter conventional fixtures don't dare to tread. The difference is in size and shape.
The BarFly's are only about an inch thick and comes with metal, rather than poly-shell designs. A four-tube BarFly 400 looks like a flat panel computer monitor. The 400 measures about 12 inches by 12 inches, but puts out almost as much light as its larger 4ft 4Bank cousin.
Currently, the Barfly family is most at home on location and studio sets for television and feature film production, but many in the electronic field production and ENG community have discovered if for a small, two point or three point lighting kit to complement such popular location lighting instruments as the Kino Flo Diva-Lite 400 and Diva-Lite 200.
King Flo has developed new, high colour rendering (CRI 95), high-output quad tubes for the BarFly fixtures. They are the first of their kind in the television or motion picture professional lightning industries, and come in True Match daylight and TrueMatch tungsten balanced styles.
