Kino Flo IMG-47X-230 (IMG47X230, IMG 47X 230, IMG/47X/230, img-47x-230) Image 47 DMX Yoke Mount, 230VAC
The Image 87 DMX fixture’s large soft light coverage and its small, energy footprint, combined with the ease of rigging compared to tungsten lighting sources makes it the darling of motion picture and television visual effects designers.
The relatively cool source takes about six different colored visual effects lighting colors, but most notably the specialized Kino Flo spiked blue and spiked green tubes for deep, rich saturation of color when lighting blue and green colored cyclorama stages.
Its smaller sibling, the Image 47 DMX, produces the same quality of light, with the same light control and beam spread features, but uses half the energy. The Image 47 works ideally on bluescreen and greenscreen stages that are no more than 15 feet in height.
Image 87/47 DMX Highlights
The Image 87 and Image 47 have distinct advantages over conventional quartz softlights:
The Image 87 and 47 are soft, broad lighting sources. In the film world, the Image 87 is probably the most popular light for lighting blue and green screens because of its even cast of light and individual lamp control. It is also a popular light on stage and location used outside of a window, a large front or side fill, or as a top light.
The Image 47 is the same light output as the 4ft 4Bank. The advantage for some applications is that the Image 47 has a built-in, onboard ballast. It also has DMX control and Yoke or Pole-Op Yoke Mount. So for news studios and smaller virtual studios, it is the ideal light source.
