The Viola 5" Multi-Color On-Camera LED Light is the first fixture in the Luxli Orchestra line. So named because all the lights in the line will be controllable by the Luxli Conductor app for iOS devices, just as if they were instruments in an orchestra. The Viola features a dimmable output that can be adjusted from either 3000 to 10,000K or 0 to 360° RGB. The unit incorporates two endlessly rotating knobs. One knob controls the flicker-free dimming adjustment from 100 to 0% brightness, while the other knob controls the color output of the unit.
Useful and functional by itself, the Viola shines brightest when used in conjunction with the free mobile device app, the Conductor. Bluetooth is always active on the fixture, and the app allows you to individually control or link together up to 6 units. With the app, you can adjust the output of the light to match a specific point of an image or video. What is more interesting is that you can sample the color and brightness from a video on your mobile device, for example a campfire, and have that sample control the brightness and color output of the light. The fixture powers from 7 to 15 VDC via a 2.1mm power port on the side of the fixture or by an included NP-F550-type battery. Mounting is via the built-in 1/4"-20 threaded mounting hole.
iOS Control for Full Color and Lighting Control
The free iOS app gives you full control over brightness and color temperature on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch with iOS 8.0 or above. The app gives you access to light color control and effects. A standard color picker lets you choose the light color that you want, opening up a world of creative lighting possibilities. You can also use your iPhone's camera to sample colors from the environment around you.
Manual Brightness and Color Controls
The Viola can be used as a standalone device and features manual controls for adjusting both brightness and color temperature. The knobs are endlessly rotating and feature detents as you turn them.
Color Temperature or Color Control
You can toggle between color temperature and color output. Color temperature is continuously adjustable from 3000 to 10,000 degrees Kelvin. You can also set the output to fall on a color scale from 0 to 360° as might be found in common photo editing software.
LED Info Screen
An integrated info screen enables confirmation of color temperature, color output, battery, and Bluetooth strength.
Animated Lighting Effects Library and Sampling
Use the iOS app to choose from a library of built-in effects, or sample video effects from an existing video stored on your iPhone. Simply open a video from within the Conductor app, move the cursor over the light effect you want to sample, and the app will stream that effect straight to your Viola. Sampled light effects are automatically stored in the app's effects library.
Link Multiple Fixtures
Light your object or scene from various angles by using multiple Viola lights. You can link them together via Bluetooth 4.0 LE and control them all simultaneously via the iOS app.
A included ball-joint cold shoe adapter allows you to mount the light on your camera's cold shoe. An integrated groove around the edge of the fixture is for a future diffusion hood (not included).
