Gekko Announces Kleer Colour

LED lighting products manufacturer Gekko Technology has announced a considerable advance in lighting with the development of kleer colour, the world's first adjustable, focusable single source multi-colour light.
Gekko's kleer colour light engine uses a single array high-power light-emitting diode which can be tuned under software control to produce millions of different colour temperatures.
David Amphlett, Gekko Technology's Founder and Managing Director, said: "The kleer colour light engine represents something of a Holy Grail in the lighting world. Designed specifically for the needs if image capture, it gives lighting directors and camera crews unprecedented control of colour temperature and illumination level. Unlike multi-source RGB colour-mix devices, kleer colour delivers a broad spectrum of light that can be adjusted by the operator to match a vast array of hues across the visible range.
"Self-monitoring sensors are paramount to ensure stable colour across a range of output levels as well as correcting changes in performance caused by ambient temperature and component ageing. In addition to its unsurpassed creative versatility, the kleer colour engine delivers far higher colour rendering than any other lighting technology powered by discontinuous sources, across all operating temperatures and illumination levels."
LED light sources offer numerous benefits over conventional light sources, including very high optical efficiency and low forward heat projection. The kleer colour light engine delivers these benefits plus the ability to match virtually any colour required to illuminate a specific scene.
In addition to primary and intermediate colours, kleer colour can precisely emulate a high quality tungsten reference source. It can be switched quickly and easily to produce 2900K, 3200K, 4300K, 5600K and 6500K as well as a wide range of colour gels. Gekko's kleer colour light engine and control software are the subjects of a range of GB, EU, US and international patent applications.
Ian Muir, Business Development Manager, said: "Gekko Technology's kleer colour light engine will be released as the heart of a range of focusable luminaires for film, television and entertainment applications. The first of these, kedo is a focusable spotlight equivalent in output to a 1 kW Fresnel."
It will be launched on the PRG stand (C10744) at the NAB 2009 exhibition in Las Vegas, April 20-23.
