Elation expands KL “Key Light” Series with full-colour KL Fresnel 8 FC
Elation Professional is expanding its KL “Key Light” Series of LED Fresnel luminaires with the full-colour spectrum KL Fresnel 8 FC. With creativity at its heart and quality as its fabric, the new KL Fresnel 8 FC meets the strict standards of performance venues that are light critical and noise sensitive.
Designed for TV and film, theatre, trade shows or any general AV application requiring high output soft light with precise colour reproduction and adjustable colour temperature, the KL Fresnel 8 FC excels at producing the soft field light that designers desire in order to masterfully highlight performers or scenery on stage. Offering a wide array of rich saturated colours, subtle pastels and dynamic white light, it is an ideal key and fill light source for situations requiring outstanding performance and colour quality.
The KL Fresnel 8 FC produces the finest quality of light with dynamic colour temperature adjustment and full colour control. It houses a highly efficient 500W RGBMA LED engine calibrated at 6500 Kelvin and emits a beautifully diffused wash of light. It produces over 18,000 field lumens with a motorized zoom range of 10° to 50° for easy adjustment of beam size. For illumination that is more precise with less light spill, adjustable and removable eight-leaf barndoors allow for customised shaping of the beam.
Colour rendering is of the highest quality with high CRI (92), TM30 (88) and TLCI (95) values, meaning that colour re-creation is extremely accurate both to the eye and to the camera. As a flexible complement to any professional lighting system with customisable effects to accommodate aesthetic design requirements, the KL Fresnel 8 FC has also been designed with respect for the whisper-quiet requirements of the professional stage and studio.
Optimised for the specific requirements of broadcast, the KL Fresnel 8 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 up to 25 kHz so there is no flickering when used with high-speed cameras.
DMX controllable with full RDM support, it offers intuitive manual control for stand-alone operation when desired for instant control of zoom, intensity, colour temperature, green shift and other important settings. The display and dedicated dimming and control encoders are conveniently positioned at the bottom side of the fixture to ensure unobstructed access.
The KL Fresnel 8 FC is portable yet rugged enough to withstand rough handling on today’s fast-paced sets. It can be mounted on a stand or suspended using any standard clamp or the included Junior pin adapter. It is fully self-contained without the need for an external power supply and offers locking power pass through for easy linking of multiple units.
Exceptional colour rendering quality, precise CCT presets and remotely adjustable LED refresh frequency make the KL Fresnel 8 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.
