Elation’s new KL PAR FC: Modern Technology meets Classic Design
Elation Professional continues to make significant strides in the development of theatrical and broadcast-grade luminaires with launch of the new KL PAR FC. Elation designers have taken modern technology and paired it with classic design to create this new full-colour LED PAR light in the company’s popular KL “Key Light” Series. Ideal for broadcast environments, film, theatre, or any production requiring outstanding colour quality, the KL PAR FC is a highly effective key, fill, and area wash light source.
The KL PAR FC houses a highly efficient 280W RGBMA LED engine with CCT adjustments possible from 2,400K - 8,500K for precise colour temperature control. The full-spectrum LED engine emits beautifully diffused saturates and soft-field pastels, including tunable white light. The unit produces the finest quality of light with high CRI (92) and TLCI (95) values, meaning that colour recreation is extremely accurate both to the eye and to the camera. Output is up to 11,000 field lumens, equivalent to existing 750W tungsten PAR fixtures.
Optimised for the specific requirements of broadcast, the KL PAR FC can adjust for light that shifts away from pure white towards green or magenta through a green-magenta shift adjustment and a virtual gel library. Capable of matching the white balance for camera, users can easily shift the colour temperature without the use of plus/minus green gels and filters. Additionally, the LED refresh rate can adjust so there is no flickering when used with high-speed cameras.
The KL PAR FC comes with a number of other useful features that make it an even more flexible complement to any professional lighting system like a 7.5” colour frame and multiple lens choices included (11°, 22°, 30°, 52°) that are easy to replace in the field. Optional items include 7.5” barndoors, an extra-wide 90° lens, and a 23° ovaliser lens.
DMX controllable (six DMX modes, 1 – 17 channels) with full RDM support, it offers intuitive manual control for stand-alone operation when desired for instant control of intensity, colour temperature, green shift and other important settings.
Exceptionally bright output, precise colour temperature control, full spectrum colour rendering and even wash coverage – all in a traditional PAR form factor – make the KL PAR FC an excellent choice for today’s fast-paced production environments. The KL Series also encompasses warm-white and cold-white models, as well as a full colour spectrum LED soft panel light.
