Kino Flo 4Bank overview

  • 1Description

The 2' 4Bank System from Kino Flo is comprised of a single 2', four-tube fluorescent fixture, a 4Bank ballast to power it, grid (louver) to help control the light, a 25' head extension cable, and a mounting plate with a long 3/8" pin that mates up with a variety of grip heads and gear.

This versatile kit is portable enough to be used for news gathering or any other location video shots but is equally at home in the studio. The 4Bank system was designed as a soft light source that could be plugged into the wall on location. With its narrow profile and size, the 4Bank could approximate the quality of light from bounced sources without losing set space. It was designed in this manner to allow the greatest flexibility when working on film production where the gaffer and DP are constantly being challenged to light unique locations and problem solve at a moment's notice. The 4Bank is a high output, high frequency electronic ballast with universal input voltage from 100-240 VAC, that can operate four lamps up to 75 feet between ballast and fixture. Dedicated switches allow for individual control of each lamp. The ballast sends a high output current to the lamps to drive the light as brightly as possible. Its high-frequency electronics prevent any type of flicker. Kino Flo's engineering ensures stable operation without magnetic hum or cooling fans to interfere with the sound recording on set.

All Kino Flo lights employ optional True Match lamps which are formulated to correspond to the spectral distribution curves of film and video cameras as well as look correct to the eye. They are designed to match the colors from quartz units or daylight sources such as HMIs. This gives the camera operator the option of mixing quartz hard light sources with fluorescent soft sources.

  • 4Bank Fixture (2')

    The 2' 4Bank Fixture from Kino Flo is a 4-lamp fluorescent light that outputs the equivalent of a 500W softlight while consuming a fraction of the traditional fixture's electrical draw. When used with a standard or DMX ballast (purchased separately) the light has 2 or 4 lamp switching to vary the power output as well as standard and High Output settings to avoid color shifting associated with dimming. Unlike other ballasts, Kino Flo's optional ballasts can be located up to 75' from the head with no power loss, solving the problem of adjustments when the light is hung overhead. Optional True Match lamps that feature a high CRI of 95 are available in 3200K or 5600K color balance.

  • 4-Lamp remote fixture with built-in barndoors
  • Fixture includes removable lamp harness, reflector and louver

  • UL listed, CE approved
  • 4Bank Ballast

    The 4Bank Ballast from Kino Flo is designed to power the 4' or 2' versions of the 4-lamp 4Bank fluorescent fixture. The silent, flicker-free ballast, specifically developed for film and video production, has 4-lamp on/off switching, runs on 100-240 VAC current and can power the fixture up to 75' away using optional head-to-ballast extension cables. It has a special Select switch to raise or drop wattage for output and color control.
