Elation Professional has announced the launch of the KL PAR FC, a new full-color LED PAR light in the company’s KL (“Key Light”) Series. It’s designed to serve as an effective key, fill and area wash light source in a wide range of applications, including broadcast and live productions.
The KL PAR FC houses a 280W RGBMA LED engine with CCT adjustments possible from 2,400K to 8,500K for more precise color temperature control. The full-spectrum LED engine emits diffused saturates and soft-field pastels, including tunable white light. The unit produces quality light with high CRI (92) and TLCI (95) values, meaning that color re-creation is intended to be 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.
Optimized 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 shift the color 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 features that make it a more flexible complement to any professional lighting system, such as a 7.5-inch color frame and multiple included lens choices (11, 22, 30 and 52 degrees) that are designed to be easy to replace in the field. Optional items include 7.5-inch barndoors, a 90-degree lens and a 23-degree ovalizer lens. DMX controllable (six DMX modes, 1 – 17 channels) with full RDM support, it offers manual control for standalone operation when desired for quick control of intensity, color temperature, green shift and other important settings.
The KL Series also encompasses warm-white and cold-white models, as well as a full-color-spectrum LED soft panel light. See the entire range here.
