New LED light hits the spot

Gekko Technology's new kezia 200F white-optimised spot lamp is claimed to offer the same light as a 1kW tungsten fixture for less than 200 Watts of power.

"The kezia 200F is optimised for use in film production or studio broadcast," said David Amphlett, Gekko's founder and Managing Director. "It allows precise adjustment between 2900 and 6500 Kelvin including presets for selection of 2900, 3200, 4300, 5600 and 6500K via DMX or an optional rear panel. A built-in colour-feedback system ensures colour temperature remains constant when the light is dimmed, as ambient conditions change or as the unit ages."

Interchangeable optics provide beam angles of 20, 35, 60 or 80 degrees. Output intensity is 8300 lux at 1 metre, 1900 lux at 2m and 900 lux at 3m.

The 200F joins the kezia 50E and F, and the 200E, which were introduced at NAB 2010. All four models are based on Gekko's kleer colour LED technology, which provides a very broad-spectrum of light with precisely controllable colour temperature. The kezia range is supported by a range of reflector options, honeycomb louvres, barn door accessories and diffusion gratings.
