Digital Sputnik DS1 Power Supply

The DS1 Power Supply from Digital Sputnik provides 90 to 260 VAC current to one of the system's LED modules, which is required for use. The DS1 also requires an AC/DC adapter for use. Alternatively, it can run on batteries when mains power is unavailable thanks to its dual V-mount battery plate. Within the power supply are controls for color temperature, hue, saturation, and light intensity. Adjustments are made locally on the fixture but control options include Wi-Fi, DMX, and ArtNet remote control.

Digital Sputnik DS RGBW LED Light Module

The DS RGBW LED Light Module from Digital Sputnik is the interchangeable lynchpin of the modular DS LED system. This listing is for the module only and requires a power supply for use.

Able to output light equivalent to that of a 100W HMI or a 500W tungsten fixture while measuring just 4 x 4", the module packs a huge amount of power in a very small package. Outfitted with its required PSU, The RGBW module provides color temperature adjustment from 1500 to 10,000K with Hue and Saturation control, allowing it to render literally millions of colors. The fixture offers a focused beam angle of 20° along with flicker-free dimming from 0-100% for maximum flexibility. Both dimming and color control can be adjusted manually on the fixture or remotely via DMX or ArtNet.

Using the optional PSU, the module can be run off batteries thanks to its dual V-mount battery plate setup, or it can be powered by mains current using the included, worldwide 90-260 VAC adapter.

Modular Design

All the DS line products use the same interchangeable light module as the core of the system. You can pick between a variety of accessories to shape the lighting fixture.

Color Science

Each light module has been factory calibrated with a profile saved into every module. Constant color coordinates are kept through the dimming range using high-precision, multi-dimensional LUTs (lookup tables). All channels are 16-bit flicker-free, current-controlled with proprietary four-channel HSL (hue, saturation, lightness) controls that allow for dimming the light with the exact mixture of white balance and tint.

Hybrid Thermal Design

The system uses passive and active cooling for maximum efficiency, keeping the modules at constant temperature to minimize fluctuations of output and color. It is possible to remotely control the fan speed over DMX/RDM or ArtNet.

Luminous

The system provides advanced RGB mixing, on par with professional colorist tools. The DS tools are an RGB LED solution able to challenge the output of widely used HMI technology.

Upgradable

Technology developments do not stand still over the years, so the whole line DS products is designed to maintain its value by Digital Sputnik's offer of gradual software and hardware upgrades. Most hardware upgrades are available as kits.

LightGrading App

The LightGrading control software offers a simple and intuitive approach to lighting, allowing the cinematographer to navigate the lights and their parameters from a phone app, grading and achieving the look instead of grading the image later in post-production.

Can the DS1 be powered via XLR cable?
Asked by: Darin
Hi Darin, The DS1 light fixture needs to be connected to the power supply via dedicated light module cables. There are several cable lengths available ranging from 2.5' to 65' to allow maximum flexibility in positioning the components. https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/search?Ntt=Digital%20Sputnik%20DS%20Light%20Module%20Cable&N=0&InitialSearch=yes&sts=ma

Is there a good case to fit 3x Digital Sputnik DS1?
Asked by: Philipp
Hello Philipp! We do not have a special case for 3x DS1 units. What would be recommended is the DS3+ system, which is 3 light heads plus a PSU, but with the downside of not being able to be battery powered. The other option is to purchase a DS1 dual system, which comes with a hard case, plus an additional individual DS1, which comes with a cut-out foam that can be transferred to a standard hard case bought separately. It would, of course, mean two cases for your set, but it is the advisable way.

question

Can you use this as a key light for Youtube beauty videos?
Asked by: Jesse
Yes you can when diffused or bounced, but I'd say it's a fairly overkill lamp for this use having the ability to make many colours. It's also fairly large.
