During IBC2018 week in Amsterdam, StudentFilmmakers Magazine (www.studentfilmmakers.com) stopped by the Kino Flo (www.kinoflo.com) exhibit booth to talk with Frieder Hochheim, President at Kino Flo Lighting Systems. StudentFilmmakers also exhibited at the show at booths 26 and 27, with sister publication, HD Pro Guide Magazine (www.hdproguide.com). At the Kino Flo booth, Frieder demonstrates the FreeStyle 151X LED DMX Controller.
Kino Flo Lighting Systems’ FreeStyle 151X LED DMX Controller replaces Select/LED controller model 150X. The two models have the same feature set and software. These controllers are interchangeable between Select 20/30 or FreeStyle 21/31 fixture heads and use the same head extensions. Both models will be supported with future software upgrades as they become available.
The introduction of the FreeStyle Controller name reflects the increased popularity of the FreeStyle fixture with the ability to remove the LED panel from the plastic housing, slip into a Gaffer Tray accessory or use as an individual panel.
The FreeStyle 151X can dial in an expanded Kelvin color temperature range from 2500K to 9900K with full Green/Magenta, Gel, Hue/Saturation and RGB color control features.
Additional features include presets and custom settings, full range dimming without flicker or color shift. Light levels do not change when selecting Kelvin settings. The FreeStyle 151X comes with standard DMX and wireless DMX (Lumen Radio®), universal input voltage 100-240VAC and 24VDC.
