Consoles and loudspeakers for new IMG Studios Spyder color calibration A 3 heads are better than one G ekko’s new 3 head LED lighting kits are ideal for quick set up where traditional 3 point lighting would be used. Comprising 3 fixtures, 2 hard sources and 1 soft source, the entire kit can be powered easily from V-Lok batteries. Supplied in a compact, flight friendly rucksack, the entire kit weighs just less than 9kg. The hard source in the kit is the Gekko K7. A compact fixture rated to IP65, the lamp generates output from seven high powered LEDs, and produces a source comparable to a 150 Watt tungsten source. Colour temperature is 5600K, with polycarbonate encapsulated CTO built in, to correct back to tungsten and diffusion to soften the output. The soft source is the karesslite 100 bicolour, which is tuneable between 3200K and 5600K. Included with this is a full grid cloth chimera to produce a single source of high quality soft light. The kit is rounded off with 3 stands, mains PSU’s and the required grip to mount the lamps. Production is now in full swing with kits available immediately. www.gekkolite.com 14 | TV-BAY MAGAZINE: ISSUE 82 OCTOBER 2013 tomos, the creator of the award- winning camera mounted recorders Ninja-2 and Samurai and the pocket-sized Connect converters, showed a pre-release version of the new Atomos Spyder at IBC.
