The Kino Flo 2' 4Bank System is made up of a single 2 ft., four-tube fluorescent fixture, a 4Bank ballast for power, a grid (louver) to assist with controlling the light, a 25 ft. head extension cable, & a mounting plate with a long 3/8" pin that matches up with a number of grip heads & gear. This system is extremely portable, making it suitable for location video shots (ex: news gathering), & is equally as suitable for studio applications. The 4Bank was made to provide a soft light source that can be plugged into the wall on location, & features a narrow profile/size. This system can approximate the quality of light from bounced sources, without losing set space during your shoot. Its design allows for the greatest possible flexibility, when working on film production where the gaffer & DP are constantly being challenged to light unique locations. This high-output, high frequency, electronic ballast features universal input voltage from 100-240 VAC, which can operate four lamps, up to 75 ft. between fixture & ballast. Its dedicated switches enable individual control of each lamp, & the ballast sends a high output current to the lamps, allowing them to drive the light as brightly as possible. Its featured high-frequency electronics are designed to prevent any type of flicker.
Kino Flo's engineering provides stable operation, without magnetic hum or cooling fans to interfere with audio recording on set. The Kino Flo lights are compatible with optional True Match lamps (separately available), which are designed to correspond to the spectral distribution curves of video & film cameras, as well as correct to the eye. They are also designed to match colors from daylight sources (HMIs) or quartz units. These features give the user an option of mixing quartz, hard light sources, with fluorescent, soft sources.
Kino Flo 4Bank Fixture (2'):
The Kino 2 ft. 4Bank Fixture is a four-lamp fluorescent light, that has an equivalent output of a 500W softlight, while consuming a fraction of the traditional fixture's electrical draw. The 4Bank Fixture can be paired with a separately available, standard DMX ballast, to provide 2 or 4 lamp switching, to vary the power output, as well as standard/high output settings. This helps to avoid color shifting that can be associated with dimming. Kino Flo's ballasts can be located up to 75 ft. from the head, with no loss of power, which solves the problem of overhead application adjustments. Separately available True Match lamps, which feature a high CRI of 95, come in 3200K or 5600K color balance.
