Elation Professional: Full-Color KL Fresnel 8 FC™

Stage Directions • Tools of the Trade • February 24, 2021

Elation Professional is expanding its KL “Key Light” Series of LED Fresnel luminaires with the full-color-spectrum KL Fresnel 8 FC™. The new KL Fresnel 8 FC meets the strict standards of performance venues that are light critical and noise sensitive. Designed for any application requiring high output soft light with precise color reproduction and adjustable color temperature, the KL Fresnel 8 FC excels at producing the soft field light that designers desire while offering a wide array of rich saturated colors, subtle pastels, and dynamic white light.

The KL Fresnel 8 FC produces light with dynamic color temperature adjustment and full color control. It houses a highly efficient 500W RGBMA LED engine calibrated at 6,500K and emits a beautifully diffused wash of light. It produces over 18,000 field lumens with a motorized zoom range of 10° to 50° for easy adjustment of beam size. Adjustable and removable 8-leaf barn doors allow for customized shaping of the beam.

Color rendering is of the highest quality with high CRI (92), TM30 (88), and TLCI (95) values, meaning that color re-creation is extremely accurate both to the eye and to the camera. The KL Fresnel 8 FC has also been designed with respect for the whisper-quiet requirements of the professional stage and studio.

Optimized for the specific requirements of broadcast, the KL Fresnel 8 FC can adjust for light that shifts away from pure white towards green or magenta through a green-magenta shift adjustment and a virtual gel library. Capable of matching the white balance for camera, users can easily shift the color temperature without the use of plus/minus green gels and filters. Additionally, the LED refresh rate can adjust up to 25 kHz so there is no flickering when used with high-speed cameras.

DMX controllable with full RDM support, it offers intuitive manual control for standalone operation when desired for instant control of zoom, intensity, color temperature, green shift, and other important settings. The display and dedicated Dimming and Control encoders are conveniently positioned at the bottom side of the fixture to ensure unobstructed access.

The KL Fresnel 8 FC is portable yet rugged enough to withstand rough handling on today’s fast-paced sets. It can be mounted on a stand or suspended using any standard clamp or the included Junior pin adapter. It is fully self-contained without the need for an external power supply and offers locking power pass through for easy linking of multiple units.
