Kino Flo Enables 360
Degrees of Color
Kino Flo has introduced
the 360-degree color system. The
company's new Diva-Lite LED and
Select LED fixtures come loaded
with software release 2.71, which
adds professional cine swatchbook presets, plus full hue and
saturation color control. From
intense reds to deeply saturated
violets, users can sample the full
chromatic spectrum at the turn of
a dial and recall favorite gel
settings at the touch of a button.
Diva-Lite and Select whitelight menus come with built-in variable green/magenta filters to
color-balance to any professional or practical light source on the set.
Using the same green/magenta settings, cinematographers are able
to map the light quality onto the spectral sensitivity curves of all
makes and models of digital cameras, and save the customized
profiles in the Diva-Lite and Select LED fixtures.
Users can easily control both the white-light mode and the
new color mode manually, or remotely via wireless and standard
DMX lighting consoles. In the white-light mode, open, unfiltered
white light reproduces real-world colors faithfully; the mired shift is
2,700K to 6,500K, and the variable green/magenta control settings
eliminate the need for corrective gels. The new 360-degree color
mode unlocks creative choices with an extended Kelvin range from
2,500K tungsten to 9,900K daylight, and users can select from an
exhaustive menu of filter-color presets or from a color-wheel of RGB
values. In addition, Kino Flo has supplemented the standard filter
categories with its own proprietary gel-color presets, such as Candle
Flame, Green Screen and Sodium Vapor.
Combined with an advanced Smoothing feature, board
operators can rely on stable, flicker-free control from high output to
the lowest light levels. Smoothing can be turned off in order to
achieve lighting effects such as a dancing candle flame or a pulsing
television screen. The 2.71 software also boasts a pair of dimming
curves, with the square curve providing fine adjustment control at
the low end of the dimming scale, and a linear curve to ensure a
one-to-one translation of the intensity throughout attenuation.
Kino Flo has partnered with LumenRadio for stable, reliable
wireless control systems. Kino Flo Diva-Lite and Select fixtures have
built-in receivers and support up to 512 channels. The fixtures are
also compatible with W-DMX transmitters. Additionally, full control
via on-board manual or DMX cable inputs is still available on every
fixture, as is the auto-terminate feature, in which the last fixture in

P+S Technic Evolves Kowa Lenses
P+S Technik has announced the Anamorphic Evolution
lenses, which are based on the original optical design of Kowa
Anamorphic lenses and incorporate P+S Technik's rehousing.
The original Kowa Anamorphic primes comprised 40mm,
50mm, 75mm and 100mm focal lengths. "We got the feedback
that the original focal range is limited, so we added two additional
focal lengths, a wide-angle and a telephoto 135mm, which
match the look of the original set," says Alfred Piffl, founder of P+S
Technik.
The optical design of the Evolution lenses is based on the
original optical design and front-anamorphic principles of the original lenses, with the same look and bokeh. They are low in contrast,
warm in color, and can be made to flare easily.
The lenses are built in a compact, lightweight housing with
modern cam-driven internal focus mechanics. The focus throw has
changed significantly compared to the originals; the Evolution lenses
offer a 200-degree angle on the focus ring and a 100-degree angle
on the aperture ring. The 80mm front diameter offers ease-of-use
with a clip-on matte box; a 77mm thread was added for screw-in
filters. The Evolution lenses are also equipped with an IMS exchange
mount; PL mount is standard, and EF and E mounts are available.
P+S Technik has also begun shipping the first sets of
completely rehoused Kowa Anamorphic lenses, which match the
modern housing and mechanics of the Anamorphic Evolution
lenses. The company also offers optical spares such as the frontanamorphic lens group. Together with the mechanical parts of the
rehousing, the Munich-based company is now able to offer service
and repair for all kinds of damages to Kowa Anamorphic lenses.
In addition to Kowa Anamorphic lenses, P+S Technik
rehouses Cooke Panchro, Schneider Cine Xenon, Kinoptik, Super
Baltar, Leica R, and Canon FD and K-35 lenses.
