DMX

The color control of the light output can be broken down into 6 categories: White, Gels, Hue angle and Saturation, RGB, CIE xy and FX (Effects).

White: The white mode sets the light to a CCT (correlated color temperature) from 2500 Kelvin (K) to 9900K. For CCT values less than or equal to 4500K, Planckian radiation is used. For CCT values greater than or equal to 5500K, CIE Daylight illuminant is used. Between 4500K and 5500K a proportional mix of Planckian radiation and the CIE Daylight illuminant is used.

There is also a green/magenta tint control that simulates adding a plus green or plus magenta gel on the base white light. The range is from 0 to 100 for both green and magenta where 100 is equal to a full plus green/magenta (or CC30 camera filter).

Gels: User can select from the gel list to simulate that gel on the base white light CCT selected. The first few names in the gel list that start with KF (Kino Flo) are not gels but simulated illuminants such as Candle Flame, Mercury Vapor, etc. These illuminants are independent of the CCT setting when in this mode.

Hue angle and Saturation: The Hue angle and Saturation values are based on a HSV / RGB model where 0° = Red, 120° = Green and 240° = Blue. Saturation is from 0 to 100. When selecting a color in Hue angle and Saturation mode, the RGB color space setting has an effect on the final color. The color space defines the white point (equal value RGB) and the red, green and blue primaries.

The Hue angle and Saturation model used is the HSV model which directly translates to an RGB code value. When the “KF Default” color space is selected, the white point of the RGB color space is variable and defined by the CCT value selected. All other color space settings have a fixed white point of 6500K.

RGB: The RGB mode lets the user directly enter the RGB values. This is useful when using a color picker or other method that outputs the color in terms of RGB. As described in the Hue angle and Saturation mode, the RGB color space setting defines the color of the RGB values.

CIE xy: The CIE xy mode allows the user to enter xy (little x and little y) color coordinates. Little x and y represent the chrominance values derived from the tristimulus values X, Y and Z in the 1931 CIE XYZ color space. These are responses based on the physiologically perceived colors in human color vision.

FX (Effects): The FX (Effects) mode allows the fixture to be used to simulate different effects such as candle, fire, tv, police, lightning, paparazzi, pulse and scroll. Each effect has multiple parameter settings to change the desired look of the effect.

Each of the DMX personalities allows color control using one of the above methods. There are a few other attributes of the personality that dictate the DMX operation.

DIM Curve: Dim Curve defines how the input DMX Dim command is applied. In Linear mode the input DMX command is directly proportional to the Dim level. For example, in an 8 bit personality an address of 127 = 50% Dim. Because single channel DMX is only 8 bit (0-255), the lower end of the Dim curve has the same increment as the higher end. Square Dim applies X2 curve and allocates more values to the lower end of the Dim scale.

8 bit vs 16 bit personalities: Standard 8 bit personalities use one DMX slot per parameter. This allows for 256 (0 to 255) values per parameter. 16 bit personalities use two DMX slots for parameters needing finer control. Using two DMX slots gives 65536 (0 to 65535) values per parameter. When a 16 bit personality is selected not all parameters utilize two DMX slots. If the parameter doesn’t benefit from the increased resolution, then there will only be one slot used for that parameter.

Crossfade (xfade): When a crossfade personality is selected, it allows the user to select two different color points and crossfade between the two. This will output the first selected color when the crossfade channel at the zero position and the second color when the crossfade channel is at the highest value. When the crossfade channel is anywhere in between, the color will be a blend of the two selected colors proportional to the crossfade value.

If a fixture loses its DMX signal, it will hold its last DMX command. For this reason, it is important to turn a fixture off using the DMX commands. For example, if you try to turn off the lights by turning off the dimmer board, the lights will remember their last DMX command and stay on. The fixtures require a DMX “Off” or “Black-Out” command in order to turn off.

Camera LUT

The Camera LUT (Look-up Tables) feature harmonizes the Kino Flo light sources to the camera. Depending on the camera and the
Kelvin setting, some differences are very subtle, while others can be more dramatic.

The corrections are applied as a CIE xy correction at each CCT (Kelvin) setting. The default setting is targeting the CIE xyz response (human eye).

Press the green menu button to the left of the display screen and scroll down to Camera LUT, then press the control knob. Menu with camera selection will be displayed. Turn the control knob and press to select camera setting:

C1 Arri Alexa
C2 Sony Venice
C3 Panavision DXL
C4 Panasonic Varicam

The camera code (C1 for Arri Alexa), for example, will appear on the main menu between DIM and CCT to designate that a camera setting is active.

Note: When the controller is reset, the camera settings will go to Kino Flo Default mode.

Color Space

Color Space defines the RGB color space used and only affects color – not Kelvin. It is used in RGB mode and Hue Angle and Saturation. There are a few instances in the FX (Effects) mode that are also affected when color is used. The RGB color space defines the value of Red, Green, and Blue primaries (in CIE xy) and the white point is fixed at 6500 Kelvin.

Press the green menu button to the left of the display screen and scroll down to Color Space, then press the control knob. Menu with color selection will be displayed. Turn the control knob and press to select Color Space options:

rec 709 / sRGB
P3 D65
rec 2020

The color space rec 709 / sRGB is commonly used on computer monitors, SDTV and HDTV television. There are slight gamma variations between rec 709 / sRGB, but not enough to separate into 2 color spaces.

The color space P3 D65 is a common color space for digital movie projection. The color space rec 2020 is used in ultra high definition television (UHDTV). The color space is used when the controller is set to the RGB mode and when set to the Hue Angle/ Saturation mode.

In RGB mode – the color space designation will be displayed at the top of the menu. When changing the Red, Blue or Green values, the Kelvin will be locked in at 6500 for all color spaces. When the Kelvin is locked in, CCT will be displayed as CCT*. When using Green/Magenta the CCT value is unlocked and color space selection has no impact.

In Hue Angle/Saturation mode – the color space designation will be displayed on the Gel line and GEL will be displayed as GEL* and CCT will be displayed as CCT*. The Color space will be displayed only when Hue Angle and Saturation are being used. When using Green/Magenta or Gel, the CCT will be unlocked and color space selection has no impact.
