Celeb® 401 DMX



The Celeb® 401 DMX LED is one of the largest LED soft panels available in the market today measuring 45” x 14”
(114.5cm x 36cm). Similar in size to the award-winning 4ft 4Bank, the Celeb produces a soft, broad, wraparound light quality (CRI 95) and produces color faithfully, beautifully on HD or film, in the studio or on location.

The Celeb boasts technical innovations: dial-in white light from 2700 to 6500 Kelvin and presets with programmable settings;
full range dimming without flicker or color shift. Light levels do not change when selecting Kelvin settings. With the use of a Lumen Radio transmitter (sold separately), the Celeb 401 can be operated DMX wirelessly as an alternative to DMX cables.

The Celeb 401 DMX operates on universal input from 100VAC-240VAC. The slim profile fixture produces more lumens than a
1K tungsten softlight, yet uses only 1.8A (120VAC) compared to a tungsten softlight at 8.3A. The Celeb 401 can also be powered by 24VDC battery.

The Celeb 401 comes complete with molded accessory holders, removable gel frame and honeycomb louver and is available in three styles: Center Mount, Yoke Mount and Pole-Op.

  Celeb 401 DMX LED
 
   
 

Kino Flo’s new innovative Celeb 401 DMX LED is a soft, cool LED ideally suited for today’s growing demands for energy efficient, portable, yet color-correct LED lighting.  The Celeb joins the Kino Flo family of Academy Award-winning lighting systems.  The Celeb was developed using the latest technology to conform to Kino Flo’s highest standards – cool, color-correct, flicker-free and dead quiet, which is what sets the Celeb apart from all other LED’s.

As with all Kino Flos, the Celeb’s soft, lustrous color has been specially formulated to match the spectral distribution curves of HD film and video cameras.  With a high color rendering index (CRI 95), the Celeb operates coolly and flicker-free, even while dimming, and maintains its True Match® color temperature without any color shift. 

The all-in-one metal alloy fixture includes onboard and DMX dimming and runs universally at 100-240VAC or 24VDC. The push-button Kelvin presets can be fine-tuned to custom settings from 2700K to 6500K with a turn of a dial.  Light levels do not change when selecting Kelvin settings. With the use of a Lumen Radio transmitter (sold separately), the Celeb 401 can be operated wirelessly as an alternative to DMX cables. The Celeb’s slim profile mounts onto a junior stand or can be hung from a grid with a junior pipe clamp. 

With its soft, beauty light and compact, sturdy design, the Celeb makes a great tool for rigorous everyday use in any studio environment or on location.

  Celeb 401 DMX LED Control Panel
 
   
 

A) Kelvin Preset Buttons:  Kelvin buttons come preset at the factory.  Factory defaults left to right are:  2700K, 3200K, 4500K, 5500K, 6500K.  User can  also use these preset buttons to store custom Kelvin settings.
B) DMX ADDRESS:  Use to set DMX address.  The Celeb 401 automatically assigns 2 channels.  First Channel controls Dimming; 
     Second Channel controls Kelvin.
C) KELVIN / DIM:  In KELVIN mode, an amber light appears to the left of the Button and Kelvin is displayed.  Press the button again to
     change to DIM mode.  In  DIM mode, a green light will appear to the left of the button and Dim level is displayed.
D) Display:  Provides Kelvin, Dim level and software revision data.
E) LOCK / RESET:  In LOCK mode, an amber light is displayed to the left of the button. In RESET mode, the indicator light is green. 
    To reset to factory presets, hold the LOCK / RESET button for 5 seconds. 
F) On / Off:  On = Green light displayed.  Off = Amber light displayed.
G) Kelvin / Dimmer Knob:  Manually adjusts Kelvin or Dim levels.  Press the knob to toggle between fine and coarse adjustments.

Note:  Each Celeb 401 DMX fixture has an “AUTO TERMINATE” feature.  The last fixture that does not have an XLR cable attached to the DMX “Out” port will automatically terminate.

   
 
 

DMX Operation

 
   
  The Celeb 401 DMX also features DMX control of dim levels as well as Kelvin color temperature control. The 1st channel operates dimming; the 2nd channel operates Kelvin color temperature control. Rotating the adjustment knob will select a DMX address.

  Celeb 401 DMX LED Advantages
   
 

Energy Efficiency

The Celeb 401 DMX LED operates on universal AC power or battery power and needs only 1.8A (120VAC) to produce more lumens than a 1k tungsten softlight.  The Celeb’s cost savings from low energy and long lamp life continues Kino Flo’s reputation as an environmentally friendly lighting company.

All-in-one Design

The Celeb 401 DMX LED is comprised of a rugged metal alloy fixture which includes state of the art electronics with onboard and DMX dimming and runs universally at 100-240VAC or 24VDC.  The five push-button Kelvin presets can be fine-tuned to custom settings from 2700K to 6500K with a turn of a dial.  Light levels do not change when selecting Kelvin settings.  With its slim design, the Celeb includes a removable gel frame and honeycomb louver.  The molded corner accessory holders can also be used as a 4-point rope hang.  With wireless capability, the Celeb 401 can be operated DMX wirelessly as an alternative to DMX cables. The all-in-one design with universal VAC or 12VDC and DMX operation makes the Celeb a versatile and portable tool whether it’s in the studio or on location.

Center Mount, Yoke Mount and Pole-Op

The versatility of the Center Mount design allows 360° of unrestricted mounting.  The junior pin lollipop can mount directly onto a
junior stand or hang from a grid with a junior pipe clamp.  The Yoke Mount fixture includes a welded alloy yoke bale offering unlimited orientation of fixture movement to focus the light when lighting from a grid.  The Pole-Op Yoke includes an attached junior pin and offers advantage of lighting from a grid and eliminating the need for ladder access or costly automated rigging and hoist systems.

Long Lamp Life

Rated lifetime is up to 50,000 hours.  With its long lamp life, the Celeb’s unique design maintains its color-correct color temperature.

True Match® Color-Correct

As with all Kino Flo products, the Celeb 401 LED has been specially formulated to match the spectral distribution curves of today’s HD film and video equipment.  The Celeb has a high color rendering index of CRI 95.  Even while dimming, the fixture is flicker-free and without color shift.

Heat Management Design

For Kino Flo, heat management is a critical design element of fixture design.  The physical heat or buildup heat within the LED fixture will directly influence the color temperature, lumen performance and life of the LED. 

The Celeb’s unique design operates coolly, consumes very low energy (1.8A, 120VAC) and is properly ventilated to maintain a stable color temperature.

A well maintained temperature extends the lumen maintenance, color temperature and life of the LED. 

Cost Savings

Cost savings attributed to the Celeb 401 LED cover a broad range of concerns:

  • Low energy costs
  • Less heat so low air conditioning expenses
  • No gel replacements because of low heat

Energy Savings Calculations

With the push for reducing fossil fuel consumption, TV studios are looking at cooler more efficient lighting systems to reduce the costs and save energy.  Part of this process involves generating energy values to determine savings.  One of the most important values is Btu/kWh.

British Thermal Units per Kilowatt Hour

Any light generates a percentage of usable light and the rest in heat.  For example, a standard incandescent light bulb converts only 11 percent of its electrical input into visible light, while the rest is dissipated directly as heat.  There are energy costs involved in cooling the studio environment.  The measure of Btu/kWh is a means of calculating the thermal loads related to operating lighting.

Use the following information to calculate Btu/kWh Watts to Btu:

1 kWh = 3413 Btu/Hr
1 Watt = 3.413 Btu/Hr
3.413 Btu per Watt-hour
