Elation Professional Expands KL Series with KL Panel

Elation Professional has added a full-colour-spectrum soft light to its KL series (Key Light) of broadcast-quality LED luminaires, the KL Panel. Optimised for the colour temperature-adjustable requirements of film and television, it is an ideal key and fill light source for any situation requiring performance and colour quality.

The KL Panel LED soft light delivers with superior output, colour temperature control, full-spectrum colour rendering and an even wash coverage. Using a 295W RGBW + Lime + Cyan LED Array, the KL Panel produces soft white or full-colour washes up to 24,000 field lumens at a 100° half-peak angle.

Colour reproduction is also of the highest quality with a CRI over 95 while colour temperature is easily adjustable from 2,000 to 10,000K for a wide choice of variable colour or white shade projections. Additional colour tuning is possible through a green-shift adjustment and virtual gel library.

Besides its wide spectrum of chromatic options, this dynamic soft light luminaire includes other useful design features like smooth 16-bit dimming all the way to zero and 16-bit selectable dimming curve modes for programming ease, as well as electronic strobe. Adjustable and removable 8-leaf barn doors allow for customized shaping of the beam for more precise illumination and less light spill.

The KL Panel is fully optimised for broadcast and film environments with 900-25000Hz LED refresh rate adjustment for flicker free operation. Compact and portable, it can be mounted on a stand or suspended using any standard clamp or the included Junior pin adapter. A rugged housing with impact-resistant surrounds and base plate ensure that the fixture can handle rough handling on today’s fast-paced sets.

Fully self-contained without the need for an external power supply, the fixture can be powered remotely through its integrated 4-pin XLR 24-36 VDC battery input (battery not included).

Professional control options include DMX, Art-NET and sACN. It can also be controlled manually using the included encoders and OLED display, providing instant control of intensity, colour temperature, green shift and other settings. The integration of Elation’s E-FLY wireless DMX system allows for even more flexibility of use.

The KL Panel is energy efficient, consuming only 295W of max power, and offers other benefits of LED like greater reliability, a long LED life rating and less maintenance for a lower cost of ownership.
