Gekko launches kezia 200-E28 October 2010
Gekko Technology has added a major addition to its kezia 200 range of hard-source luminaires, the new kezia 200-E, which gives lighting designers dynamic control of colour output.
Based on Gekko’s award-winning ‘kleer-colour’ LED multi-chip array, it combines high creative versatility with long component life, low power consumption and minimal heat generation.
“Performers working in a studio or close to camera increasingly request our lighting equipment, both for its inherently cool operation and its flattering rendition of skin tones,” stated Gekko Technology’s Managing Director, David Amphlett. “The kezia 200-E extends the inherent advantages of LEDs to the world of entertainment where the heat generated by tungsten lights can create uncomfortable working conditions. Lighting directors will in turn appreciate being able to generate colour effects that are consistent from lamp to lamp, as a consequence of the closed-feedback loop which constantly monitors and corrects the light quality.”
Controllable via DMX or an optional rear panel, the kezia 200-E can be adjusted manually or remotely to produce literally millions of colours. Integral presets allow rapid selection of 2900K, 3200K, 4300K, 5600K and 6500K whites. Colour temperature remains constant even when the light is dimmed. Drawing less than 200W of power at 24-50V DC or 90-264V AC, the kezia 200-E has an output roughly equivalent to a 1kW tungsten fixture. Dimensions are 266 x 323 x 278mm (length x height x width) and weight is 6.9kg.
