An interview from the 2017 National Association of Broadcasters Convention in Las Vegas with Frieder Hochheim of Kino Flo Lighting Systems. Kino Flo is a manufacturer and designer of fluorescent lighting equipment for film, video, TV broadcast and digital imaging productions. In this interview Frieder talks with us about Kino Flo’s new FreeStyle 31 & 21 LED Panel.
The new FreeStyle LED comes with a lightweight, removable LED panel with center mount and molded corners for additional rigging points. Using the same LED controller for the Select LED line, users can dial in an expanded Kelvin color temperature range from 2500K to 9900K with full Green/Magenta, Gel, Hue/Saturation and RGB color control features.
Kino Flo’s new FreeStyle 31 & 21 LED’s include 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 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, and 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. The RGB menu is a great way to work with apps with predetermined RGB presets or color wheels.
Kino Flo's new FreeStyle LED’s also come with standard DMX and wireless DMX (Lumen Radio®), 24VDC input, and universal voltage input 100-240VAC (1.3 Amps at 120U). We also recently added new SnapBag Softbox and SnapGrid accessories.
