Select 30/20 LED DMX
Kino Flo's Select 30 and 20 LED DMX systems were launched with great success in June 2016. Lighting crews embraced the remote LED controller and the light-weight fixture that allow for rigging flexibility. In addition, users welcomed the ability to dim without color shift, dial in Kelvin temperatures, and select Green/Magenta settings using on-board controls or DMX lighting consoles. But, there was also a built-in secret.
Kino Flo launched the Select LED system as a white light source with Green/Magenta selection. Kino Flo used an RGB emitter to control the Green/Magenta color, but we knew that the RGB feature could do more. We just needed to sort out a menu system that would be as intuitive when using the controller manually as when using it on DMX.
The Select LED now includes three menu options, one white and two color menus. Those who prefer to work with white light can use the "white menu" that gives the user access to Dimming, Kelvin and Green/Magenta control channels. Kelvin range is from 2700K tungsten to 6500K daylight.
In the first color menu, the Kelvin range travels from 2500K tungsten to 9900K daylight, and Kino Flo has set up a fourth channel called Gel. The Gel channel includes Kino Flo presets such as blue & green screen, sodium vapor, mercury vapor and over 100 well-known lighting gels. In addition, there is also a fifth channel called Hue Angle and sixth channel, Saturation. These two channels behave similar to a traditional color wheel, where you have white light in the center, the Hue angle determines the color along a 360-degree range, and Saturation determines how much color is applied. The second color menu provides individual red, green, blue (RGB) control. This menu is a great way to work with apps with predetermined RGB presets or color wheels.
For those that have already purchased these units, there will be a free firmware update available in April 2017 to gain access to the new color menus.
Kino Flo's new Select LED's also come with standard DMX and wireless DMX (Lumen Radio®), 24VDC input, and universal voltage input 100-240VAC (1.25 Amps at 120U). We also recently added new Snapbag Softbox and Snapgrid accessories.
