At this year’s NAB, Coemar debuted their new 6-color LEDko FS6 LED light engine and it is a winner. The new LED chip on board includes Red, Green, Blue, White (5600K), and now Lime & Phosphor Corrected Amber. Their goal was to create an all-in-one fixture that could address both Studio and Theatrical markets with the capability of producing intensely saturated colors without sacrificing the output punch of the whites. The purpose behind adding the Lime and PC Amber is to help “beef up” the Red, Green and Yellow parts of the color spectrum as well as adding the ability to produce a high CRI (above 94) throughout the range of whites. Depending on the mode you select, the new LEDko FS6 can be used as a variable white (2700K - 6500K) or an all-in-one, color changing fixture. All LEDkos can be controlled via DMX, RDM or locally at the head. Also new to the Coemar product line are an LED Spot and Fresnel moving heads. The LEDko TM F6 uses the same 6-color LED light engine as in the LEDko FS6 in addition to all the characteristics you would expect in an intelligent profile fixture: Zoom (13-38 degrees), Internal Framing Shutters, Iris, Frost Filter, and Pan/ Tilt. For the Fresnel crowd, the LEDko TM Fresnel is available in either Tunable Tungsten (2700K - 4100K) or Tunable Daylight (4100K - 6500K), both of which include RGBW LED chips, Green/Magenta manipulation, Proportional Zoom (13-65 degrees), an Internal Barndoor Framing System, and Pan/Tilt. These will be available for sale shortly. http://www.coemar.com/
Otello 8 Full Spectrum
The Otello 8 Full Spectrum is a fully motorized zoom Fresnel. It has 20-bit color mixing through 6 colors: red, green, blue, cyan, lime, and amber. Color temperature control from 27K to 65K and an average CRI of 95. The fixture boasts 16-bit dimming with 4 dim curves that can be selected digitally. The motorized zoom capabilities allow for a range from 14 to 84 degrees. Green-Magenta adjustment, flicker-free operation, and 4 different fan settings, (low, auto, studio and DMX control) round out the key features of this versatile lighting fixture. Also available in Tungsten, Daylight and Variable White.
Otello 6 VariWhite
Available in Tungsten, Daylight or Full Spectrum, The Otello 6 VW will have a color temperature range of 2800K to 6500K with an average CRI of > 94. The motorized zoom will allow beam control from 14 to 81 degrees. Thanks to HD electronics, the smooth 16-bit dimmer is processed at 20-bit. It will also have the same guaranteed flicker-free operation and fan settings, (low, auto, studio, DMX control) as the Otello 8.
ReLite LED HD
The ReLite LED HD is a replacement LED, designed to retrofit 1K and 2K traditional incandescent fixtures. It has an internal microprocessor and HD electronics that allow for customization. The ReLite comes in fixed white at either 3200K or 5600K with a CRI of 90. Smooth dimming from 10% to 100% using traditional triac AC or IGBT dimmers. You can utilize your existing incandescent fixtures and reduce power consumption by over 90% with almost no heat generated. And longer lamp life means no relamping issues. It is also flicker free for TV and Broadcast installations.
Designed to retrofit every old halogen fixture, the ReLite Kit is an LED source that can be controlled not only from traditional triac AC or IGBT dimmers but also by DMX. Comprised of an external power supply and LED source, the ReLite kit will have improved light output compared to the standard ReLite versions, will be available in tungsten, daylight or variable white, from 2700K to 6500K and a CRI of 90 to >95. The kit boasts smooth 16 bit dimming with no color shift when dimming and the same power savings and flicker-free operation as the original ReLite LED.http://www.coemar.com
DeSisti showed their new SoftLED 2 XL which has replaced the remote phosphor technology used in the SoftLEDs with Fixed White chips. These new chips are adding 50% more light output than their predecessors while retaining CRIs greater than 96 and TLCIs of 97.5. I was told that Lighting Designers had requested DeSisti to add a longer fixture with a larger surface area. It’s nice to know they listened and acting on those suggestions. The SoftLED 2 XL uses the same power as the SoftLED 4 but is 20% brighter. On another note, the Piccoletto joins the DeSisti line of Variable White Fresnels (2700K - 6500K). This is their 300W tungsten equivalent.
Fiilex displayed it’s Q8 Travel, a 340W tunable LED Fresnel. It’s precisely designed 8” Fresnel lens produces a smooth light field at all beam angles (12-60°). The Q8 Travel includes three other key features that address the needs of many film and video productions. First, the tunable CCT and hue enable the Q8’s output to blend seamlessly with existing lighting. Second, the robust construction ensures that the Q8 can withstand rough transportation and rigging conditions. Third, the intuitive LCD display and manual control knobs allow filmmakers to make quick adjustments on set. With 48V DC battery compatibility and a weight of only 16 pounds, the Fiilex Q8 Travel is a great LED lighting fixture for on-location use. FEATURES: - 340W power draw - Unmatched focus/flood range of 12-60° - Smooth dimming down to 0% - Flicker-free at any frame rate - IP-24 Rating (water-resistant) - Tunable CCT (2800-6500K) - Hue control (±0.25 green/magenta) - High CRI at any color temperature, 97 typical. - Broadband full-spectrum LED source - Designed in the USA. Assembled in USA/Taiwan Filex also displayed The Matrix II RGBW. This fixture brings full-color control to Fiilex's Matrix line of soft-source LED punch lights. The Dense Matrix LEDs in the Matrix II RGBW boast multi-wavelength color groups. The Matrix II RGBW fixture draws 340W of power and produces an output greater than a 1K tungsten soft light. This output is generated by the four Dense Matrix LED clusters that are set into a custom-designed reflecting chamber and enclosed by a layer of diffusion. With its four LED sources, the Matrix II supports additional optics and accessories that can easily reshape the fixture’s illumination. The fixture is compatible with light banks from Chimera as well as DoP Choice when using the speed ring accessory. It can also be used as a front-focused light with the optional Quad-Fresnel, which increases beam intensity by 3x. The Matrix II is also available in an alternate Tunable White model. The Matrix II Tunable White and the RGBW both have an improved mechanical design, smoother dimming down to 0%, magenta/green hue adjustment, and tunable CCT (2800-6500K and 2800-10000K respectively). The housing of each Matrix II RGBW fixture is constructed of high-grade aluminum along with ruggedized rubber at the impact points making them extremely hard-wearing and shock-resistant. FEATURES: - Full RGBW control - Custom multi-wavelength LED groups deliver rich, bright color - Smooth dimming down to 0% without flicker - RDM/DMX512 - 5V/1A USB powers wireless DMX - IP-24 weather resistant - XLR power input compatible with 48V battery power - Unique Fresnel accessory for increased punch - Future-proof: the ability to upgrade firmware in the field - Compatible with industry-standard softboxes and octabanks via speed ring accessory - Extreme durability with high-grade aluminum housing and a ruggedized exterior https://www.fiilex.com/
