The BarFly 450 DMX System follows in Kino Flo's long tradition of lightweight, low-profile lighting fixtures that offer flexibility, superior control features and unmatched accuracy.

The 450 DMX features a 100 - 240VAC built-in ballast that allows you to use it anywhere in the world, as well as 5 - 100% dimming both locally and via DMX for the fixture's four optional 55W lamps. For maximum control and minimum color shift dimming can be combined with each of the four lamp's power control switches. Thanks to superior heat management design both the lamps and the ballast enjoy a long lifetime while reproducing color at an impressive 95 CRI when used with Kino's True Match lamps. Extremely low physical heat also means that you can squeeze the 4.5" deep fixture into places where a hot light can't go without fear of injuring the talent. And the 450 DMX isn't an energy magnet like most hot lights, either. The fixture is brighter than a 1,000W tungsten soft light while drawing only 2 .4 amps of power. The 450 DMX comes with a 90° louver (grid) to add directionality and control spill light and a filter frame for light balancing and diffusion.

Mounting Plate with 5/8" Receiver

Built-in Ballast
The onboard ballast's unique design provides high output, flicker-free, dead quiet operation. The built-in universal power supply has an auto-sensing voltage regulator. It can be plugged into voltage ranging from 100 - 240VAC, so it can be used anywhere in the world.
DMX Dimming and Lamp Switching
The combination of dimming and lamp switching gives maximum light control without color shift. The built-in ballast features onboard local as well as DMX dimming control from 100 to 5%. In addition to dimming, individual lamp switching can also be done locally or via DMX to make broad adjustments in light levels.
Included Accessories
The BarFly includes a 90° Honeycomb Louver. The Kino Flo specially designed metal foil Honeycomb Louver controls and narrows the light spread with minimal light loss. It is also available in 60° and 45° versions.
The BarFly's center mount design allows unrestricted fixture orientation. The recommended mount for the BarFly is the MTP-BL41 which has a 5/8" Baby receiver that mounts directly onto a light stand. The mount can also be removed so that the fixture can be hand-held or hidden in a space too small to place a stand-mounting fixture.
Energy Efficiency
The BarFly 450 DMX is brighter than a 1,000W tungsten softlight while drawing only 2.4A of power- roughly 1/10 the draw as a traditional fixture. This is especially important when shooting on location and power availability is an issue.
Optional True Match Color Correct Lamps
True Match lamps are specially formulated to correspond to the spectral distribution curves of film and video cameras.
