Cineo Trucolor HS Hire
We are delighted to announce that we can now offer the astonishing Cineo Trucolor HS for rental!
TruColor® HS™ from Cineo Lighting is the first color-accurate digital soft source designed specifically to meet the strict standards of motion picture and broadcast production. With more than twice the output of a 2K incandescent soft light, TruColor HS delivers an extended CRI over 95, generates a 160-degree beam spread, and uses less than 500 watts of AC power, allowing several units to be plugged into a single 13amp circuit.
Accurately measuring the colour accuracy of LED fixtures has proven difficult, with traditional CRI values often being misleading. Whilst the Trucolor HS demonstrates very high CRI figures (of 98 at 3200k and 94 at 5600k), it has also proven itself to be almost unrivalled in the new measure adopted to more accurately assess LED sources: the Cineo Trucolor HS has TLCI results of 99 at 3200k and 97 at 5600k (a “perfect” tungsten reference is benchmarked at 100).
Remote Phosphor Technology (RPT) eliminates the color-accuracy limitations inherent in LED fixtures. Instead of relying on LEDs as the source of illumination, TruColor HS’ independent phosphor panels emit high-quality light when excited by the high-frequency wavelengths from blue LEDs. Gone are the multiple shadows typical of traditional LED fixtures!
The interchangeable phosphor panels allow you to achieve a variety of color temperatures with a single fixture. The CCT of the TruColor HS is extremely consistent fixture to fixture, and will not change over time like other lighting technologies.
The power of the HS is truly remarkable – everyone who uses one for the first time is astonished by the sheer volume of beautiful soft light it produces.
With the new DX450 ballast the HS is dimmable in smooth steps from 100% to 0%, without any measurable colour shift, and completely flicker free at all frame rates.
The re-designed power supply includes both local and DMX control, and connects to the lamp head with
a ruggedized multi-core cable. The TruColor HS is flicker-free and silent, perfect for any film or television project in the studio or on location.
The HS uses incredibly efficient passive cooling, allowing the talent to remain cool, and making the unit whisper quiet on set.
Included with the unit are interchangeable phosphor panels that allow switching from 3200K to 5600 with no loss of output, and a 90 degree louvre adds greater directional control along with barn doors to help control spill. A 3′ x 3′ D.O.P. Choice soft box is available as an optional extra.
TruColor HS from Cineo Lighting delivers an unprecedented volume of soft light optimized for image capture, as well as other applications that demand accurate color rendering. By harnessing Remote Phosphor Technology (RPT), the TruColor HS significantly exceeds the output of a traditional 2K incandescent soft light, typically using less than 500 watts of AC power. Several units can be plugged into a single 15 amp circuit avoiding the added cost of generators, fuel, and heavy cables. Operating temperatures are also significantly reduced, producing virtually no heat in the illuminated area.
Rather than traditional diffusion to soften the light source, the light actually emits from the RPT panels on the front of the fixture, providing a lighting characteristic that radiates equally in a 160° radius. The ability for TruColor HS to “wrap” your subject with soft, edgeless shadows is unlike any fixture you’ve ever used.
Cineo Lighting has partnered with Intematix Corporation, a leading innovator of phosphor technology to develop special high-CRI formulations that deliver 3200K with a CRI of 98. When daylight is required, the interchangeable phosphor panels allow the same fixture to output 5600K with a CRI of 94. Additional color temperatures are available to match other light conditions, including panels optimized for chroma key. The color temperature of the TruColor HS is extremely consistent fixture to fixture, and will not change over time like other lighting technologies.
Like all Cineo Lighting products, the TruColor HS is extremely durable, built to last with anodized alloy construction, tough polycarbonate panels, and field serviceable components.
