GLP: KNV Modular LED System Luminaires

Stage Directions

Officially presented at PLASA 2018 and officially shipping now, the modular KNV LED system from GLP can be used either individually or as a composite. Designers can rely on two basic forms: the cube-shaped KNV Cube and the KNV Arc – a device in the form of an eighth circle. Billed as the first frameless LED module, the KNV system combines strobe, blinder, and pixel block. It allows designers to build unique structures — any combination of KNV Cube and Arc can be combined together to form an infinite level of seamless design elements where scenery becomes lighting and lighting becomes scenery.

Coded intelligence and advanced communication make connecting ARRI SkyPanel and L-Series fixtures to the app simple and straightforward. After using Stellar, it will be difficult to go back to controlling lights in any other way.
