AC Lighting showed the new Chroma-Q Studio Force II range of fixtures. These fixtures represent an evolution of the Chroma-Q Studio Force fixtures by incorporation the homogenized optics from the Chroma-Q Color Force II series of fixtures with a new LED package. The fixtures utilize Chroma-Q’s proprietary ColorSure system to ensure fixtures within the same product range provide consistent output regardless of when they are manufactured. This process involves a complex range of processes for selecting (binning) individual LED emitters; calibrating LED light engines in-house to a uniform standard and sophisticated firmware and software ensures exceptional fixture to fixture consistency. Available in 1, 4, and 6-foot lengths the fixtures provide variable white light output from 2,800-6500K with +2/-2 green adjustment and a CRI of up to 94. Output is 6,500; 2400; and 3600 lumens respectively. The red, green, blue, and white emitters which make up the LED array can also be controlled individually to provide colored light for scene setting or effects. All of the lengths have a native beam angle of 22 degrees which can be modified to 43 degrees with the optional border lens and to an 80 degree by 35-degree asymmetrical beam with the optional cyc optic. The fixtures offer onboard control via a rear-mounted touch screen as well as remote control via DMX/ RDM and wireless control using optional LumenRadio. When controlled via DMX, a control channel enables switching between the variable white and color modes without needing to access the fixture. The fixtures can also be sub-divided to allow different sections of the overall fixture to be controlled separately and the design of the housing and mounting is such that fixtures can be lined up end to end with no gap for a continuous appearance. The compact form factor (less than 7.5” x 9” square in height and depth) will make these fixtures are a good choice for spaces with low trims and their comparatively narrow beam angle will allow for a relatively longer throw than other variable white/ color mixing fixtures. http://www.chroma-q.com/

Cineo has added yet another powerful creative tool to the lighting professional’s arsenal – the Standard 410. This fixture won theTV Technology “Best in Show,” adding to their already award-winning white-light quality with their innovative saturated color technology. The Standard 410 delivers up to 25,000 lumens of beautiful, easily controllable, full-gamut light. The Standard 410 boasts a substantial 2’ x 1’ diffused illuminating surface, weighing less than 29 lbs., with a maximum power of 410 watts. Creating beautiful light within an extended color gamut is only part of the story. Cineo has developed an intuitive control strategy that allows predictable, repeatable results, either using the graphical control panel or remotely with wired or built-in wireless CRMX control. The strategy is simple: four controls or four DMX channels control the entire fixture in a single mode of operation: Dim - Cineo’s Photo-Accurate Dimming™ maps the 0-100% dimming curve to actual camera stops for precise output control using the MASTER control locally or on the first DMX channel. CCT – For color-accurate white light, choose the CCT as you would with any Cineo fixture using the CCT rotary control or the second DMX channel. Saturation - controls the amount of saturated color to be added to the white light, from full white to fully saturated color, managed on the third DMX channel. Hue - To optionally add saturated color, the HUE control adjusts the hue, the color of which is displayed on the control panel, or managed on the fourth DMX channel. With the Standard 410, the same color shading can be achieved regardless of the CCT used for photography. For example, +2 Green added to 3200K CCT will look the same as +2 Green at 5600K to the correctly white-balanced camera.
Lightblade LB Edge Series
NBCUniversal, in partnership with Cineo, has re-designed the ultimate creative lighting tools for Motion Picture and Broadcast: the LightBlade Edge modular fixtures.
Individual Blades are the key component to the modular LightBlade Edge fixtures. At 24″ (610mm) or 48″ (1.2m) wide by 2 1/2″ (64mm) deep, the individual LightBlades bring you both versatility and a low profile footprint that can efficiently and discreetly light even the darkest and tightest corners of your set.
Each individual LightBlade can operate as a stand-alone fixture, with internal AC power supply, control electronics with DMX and Local control. Combining superior white light with innovative full-gamut saturated color technology, a single LightBlade delivers up to 5,000 lumens at an 80-watt power draw. Both 24″ and 48″ LightBlades are the most powerful linear lighting engines on the market.
The LightBlade Edge fixtures offer a unique modular design. LightBlades are integrated into the mounting system to create the Edge 160 (2-Blade) and Edge 320 (4-Blade) fixtures, delivering 10,000 or 20,000 lumens. The LightBlades in the Edge fixture can be set to operate as an integrated light source, or they can operate independently for dynamic lighting effects.
The LightBlade Edge modular fixtures offer the simplicity of a complete lighting fixture with the flexibility of individual LightBlade control.
Introducing the Lightblade LB800™, the latest professional lighting tool from NBCUniversal® and Cineo Lighting™. The LB800 represents the latest technological advances within the Lightblade product line, with new features and even greater flexibility.
Like all LightBlade fixtures, the LB800 uses proprietary phosphor-converted white light LEDs, as well as phosphor-converted saturated color LEDs. These work together to create a balanced, natural-looking spectrum. The saturated color LEDs use the exact same dies as the white LEDs, so all light emitting elements of the LightBlade products carry identical thermal stability and perform over time with consistent color quality.
Additional features include support of both 8-bit and 16-bit DMX data, as well as multiple color space personalities.
Controlling the color space for each zone can be accomplished in either HSI + CCT mode, or RGB + CCT. The LB800 can store and recall multiple fixture settings for quick access to frequently used lighting parameters.
For dynamic lighting effects, the LB800 can be configured in 10 independent zones, with complete DMX/RDM control over each zone. For advanced use, all parameters for each zone are completely configurable via RDM.
The LB800 includes the same intuitive graphical user interface as the LB1K and Cineo Standard 410 delivering predictable, repeatable results. The fixture can be controlled locally or remotely with wired or built-in wireless CRMX control.https://www.cineolighting.com
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/
