Gekko Technology announces a major addition to its kezia 200 range of hard-source luminaires. Introduced during October at SATIS 2010 in Paris and LDI 2010 in Las Vegas, the new kezia 200-E gives lighting designers in entertainment, film and broadcasting dynamic control of colour output to match the rhythm of music shows or the effects requirements of stage and studio productions. 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," states 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 200 W of power at 24-50 V DC or 90-264 V AC, the kezia 200-E has an output roughly equivalent to a 1 kW tungsten fixture. Dimensions are 266 x 323 x 278 mm (length x height x width) and weight is 6.9 kg.
Represented at SATIS by French-reseller Cartoni and at LDI by US master distributor PRG, Gekko exhibited the kezia 200-E alongside the recently-introduced Gekko kezia 200-F tunable-white hard-source and karess 6006-DD high-brightness soft light.
Gekko Technology produces versatile, robust and efficient LED-based luminaires for film, television, photographic and stage lighting. Intelligent design, combined with high-quality components, ensures accurate, consistent and precisely-controllable colour-temperature. Credits include Casino Royale, Quantum of Solace, Death Defying Acts, Mamma Mia, Golden Compass, Star Trek, Desperate Housewives and Date Night.
