Kino Flo KIT-C450YU (C450YU, KIT_C450YU, KIT/C450YU, KITC450YU) Celeb 450 DMX LED Fixture with Yoke Mount
The Celeb 450 LED DMX is one of the largest LED soft panels available in the market today measuring 50 x 16.5". Similar in size to the award-winning 4ft 4Bank, the Celeb 450 LED produces a soft, broad, wraparound light quality (CRI 95) and produces color faithfully, beautifully on HD or film, in the studio or on location. The Celeb 450 has 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 Celeb 450 LED also comes with standard DMX and wireless DMX (Lumen Radio) and universal voltage input 100-240VAC (2.5 Amps at 120V).
Celeb 450 LED DMX Advantages
The Celeb 450 LED DMX operates on universal AC power and needs only 2.5A (120VAC) to produce more lumens than a 1k tungsten softlight. The Celeb's cost savings from low energy and long lamp life continues Kino Flo's reputation as an environmentally friendly lighting company.
The Celeb 450 LED DMX is comprised of a rugged metal alloy fixture which includes state of the art electronics with onboard and DMX dimming and runs universally at 100-240VAC. With three menus, White and two Color menus, presets can be fine-tuned to custom settings from 2700K to 6500K in the white menu and custom settings from 2500K to 9900K in the color menus.
In the white menu, the user has access to Green/Magenta control. In the first color menu, there are three additional channels, Gels, Hue Angle and Saturation. In the second color menu, the user has access to individual Red, Green, Blue (RGB) control which works great with Apps with predetermined RGB presets or color wheels.
Light levels do not change when selecting Kelvin settings and there is no color shift while dimming. With its slim profile design, the Celeb LED includes a removable honeycomb louver. The molded corner accessory holders can also be used as a 4-point rope hang. With wireless capability, the Celeb 450 LED can be operated DMX wirelessly as an alternative to DMX cables. The all-in-one design with universal VAC and DMX operation makes the Celeb 450 LED a versatile and portable tool whether it's in the studio or on location.
The Yoke Mount fixture includes a welded alloy yoke bale offering unlimited orientation of fixture movement to focus the light when lighting from a grid.
The metal valence ship case is recommended for transport by sea or air. The yoke ship case (KAS-CE4-Y) holds one yoke mount fixture and one additional louver.
Long LED Life
Rated lifetime is up to 50,000 hours. With its long LED life, the Celeb's unique design maintains its color-correct color temperature.
True Match Color-Correct
As with all Kino Flo products, the Celeb 450 LED has been specially formulated to match the spectral distribution curves of today's HD film and video equipment. The Celeb LED has a high color rendering index of CRI 95. Even while dimming, the fixture is flicker-free and without color shift.
Heat Management Design
For Kino Flo, heat management is a critical design element of fixture design. The physical heat or buildup heat within the LED fixture will directly influence the color temperature, lumen performance and life of the LED.
The Celeb's unique design operates coolly, consumes very low energy (2.5A, 120VAC) and is properly ventilated to maintain a stable color temperature. A well maintained temperature extends the lumen maintenance, color temperature and life of the LED.
Cost savings attributed to the Celeb 450 LED cover a broad range of concerns:
• Low energy costs
• Less heat so low air conditioning expenses
Energy Savings Calculations
With the push for reducing fossil fuel consumption, TV studios are looking at cooler more efficient lighting systems to reduce the costs and save energy. Part of this process involves generating energy values to determine savings. One of the most important values is Btu/kWh.
