Celeb® 850 LED DMX


The Celeb® 850 LED DMX joins Kino Flo’s family line of LED soft lights. One of the largest LED’s in the industry, the Celeb 850 measures 45” x 26” (114cm x 66cm). Light output is 111FC at 10ft (1251 LUX at 3M) but only uses 5.0A (120VAC).

The Celeb 850 has three Menu options, one white and two color menus. Those who prefer to work with white light can use the "white menu" that gives the user access to Dimming, Kelvin and Green/Magenta control channels. Kelvin range is from 2700K tungsten to 6500K daylight.



In the color menu, the Kelvin range travels from 2500K tungsten to 9900K daylight, and Kino Flo has set up a fourth channel called Gel. The Gel channel includes Kino Flo presets such as blue & green screen, sodium vapor, mercury vapor and over 100 well-known lighting gels. In addition, there is also a fifth channel called Hue Angle and sixth channel, Saturation. These two channels behave similar to a traditional color wheel, where you have white light in the center, and the Hue angle determines the color along a 360-degree range, and Saturation determines how much color is applied. The second color menu provides individual red, green, blue (RGB) control. The RGB menu is a great way to work with apps with predetermined RGB presets or color wheels.

Kino Flo's Celeb 850 LED also comes with standard DMX and wireless DMX (Lumen Radio®), and universal voltage input
100-240VAC (4.1 Amps at 120V). We also recently added new SnapBag Softbox and SnapGrid accessories. With the SnapBag, the surface area increases in size to 72” x 49” (183cm x 124cm).

  The center mount is ideal for location shooting and allows the fixture to spin 360 degrees to produce a wide range of desired angles. For further control, the center mount can also rotate at 90° stops. Pull locking pin and turn counter-clockwise to unlock. When the fixture rotates to a 90° angle, the fixture will "click" into place. Turn locking pin to the right to lock into place. The Junior Stand Adapter
(MTP-V63JR) is best suited for stand mounting. If used to hang in a studio, use Hanging Adapter (MTP-V63H1) so that the fixture weight will be properly centered. See Below.

  Celeb 850 LED DMX Advantages
   
 

Energy Efficiency

The Celeb 850 LED DMX operates on universal AC power and needs only 5.0A (120VAC). 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 850 LED DMX 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.  With three menus, White and two Color menus, presets can be fine-tuned to custom settings from 2700K to 6500K in the white menu and custom settings from 2500K to 9900K in the color menus.  In the white menu, the user has access to Green/Magenta control.  In the first color menu, there are three additional channels, Gels, Hue Angle and Saturation. In the second color menu, the user has access to individual Red, Green, Blue (RGB) control which works great with Apps with predetermined RGB presets or color wheels. 

Light levels do not change when selecting Kelvin settings and there is no color shift while dimming.  With its slim profile design, the Celeb LED includes a removable honeycomb louver.  The molded corner accessory holders can also be used as a 4-point rope hang.  With wireless capability, the Celeb 850 LED can be operated DMX wirelessly as an alternative to DMX cables. The all-in-one design with universal VAC and DMX operation makes the Celeb 850 LED a versatile and portable tool whether it’s in the studio or on location.

Center Mount

The versatility of the Center Mount design allows 360° of unrestricted mounting. For additional control, the center mount can rotate at 90° stops. The junior pin lollipop can mount directly onto a junior stand. With an optional Hanging Adapter, the fixture can hang from a grid with a junior pipe clamp. 

Long LED Life

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

True Match® Color-Correct

As with all Kino Flo products, the Celeb 850 LED has been specially formulated to match the spectral distribution curves of today’s HD film and video equipment.  The Celeb LED 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 (5.0A, 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 850 LED cover a broad range of concerns:

  • Low energy costs
  • Less heat so low air conditioning expenses

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
