Elation Expands KL “Key Light” Series With Full-Color KL Fresnel 8 FC

by | Mar 3, 2021 | Gear, Lighting, News, Production

Elation Professional is expanding its KL “Key Light” Series of LED Fresnel luminaires with the new full-color-spectrum KL Fresnel 8 FC. It’s designed for any AV application requiring high-output soft light with precise color reproduction and adjustable color temperature.

The KL Fresnel 8 FC offers a wide array of rich saturated colors, subtle pastels and dynamic white light. This makes it highly suitable as a key and fill light source for situations requiring outstanding performance and color quality.

It houses a highly efficient 500W RGBMA LED engine calibrated at 6500 Kelvin. It also emits a diffused wash of light, while producing over 18,000 field lumens with a motorized zoom range of 10 to 50 degrees for easy adjustment of beam size. For illumination that is more precise with less light spill, adjustable and removable 8-leaf barn doors allow for customized shaping of the beam.

Color rendering is of the highest quality with high CRI (92), TM30 (88) and TLCI (95) values. This means that color re-creation is extremely accurate both to the eye and to the camera. As a flexible complement to any professional lighting system with customizable 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.  

Optimized 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 color 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 standalone operation when desired. This allows for instant control of zoom, intensity, color 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 Key Light 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.
