Developed by cinematographers, gaffers, and grips, the Redback 36" Octagon Parabolic LED Basic Kit from Hudson Spider is built around a 36" diameter fixture that can be set up in 5 minutes, broken down to a 12 x 8" cylinder, and packed in its shock and waterproof rolling travel case. The fixture's eight hinged aluminum and steel arms can be formed into a parabolic shape with a total of 3456 closely-spaced LEDs that combine to create a soft continuous source. In addition to softness, the Redback has a unique wrap-around quality, snappy contrast, and a crisp specular quality that some have called "magical" while most refer to it simply as a beauty light.

Using the included 90-305 VAC Litegear power supply/dimmer, the Redback has color temperature with a wide range of 2600 to 6500K with a CRI of 95+ - an indicator of superior accuracy in color rendering. It can also be dimmed from 0 to 100% and while you can make these adjustments locally on the fixture, you can also do it remotely via onboard DMX from a console.

For those requiring directional control and softness options this kit also includes a Redback Parabolic Reflector that includes a silver-interior Ultrabounce fitted cover, Magic Cloth diffuser, and full and 1/2 grid cloth diffusers. Also included are an IEC power cord, 24' header cable, and a 5/8" Baby pin with 3/8" threads. It all fits in the kit's water and shockproof rolling case.

Design

The key to recreating the umbrella bounced light look with LEDs is to have them positioned closely together, spread evenly along the length of a parabolic-shaped armature, and focused outwards, not bounced, combining to create one attractive, continuous soft source. This phenomenon makes direct LED a viable alternative to bounced HMI or Tungsten.

Developed by Filmmakers

The Redback was developed on set by cinematographers, gaffers, and grips to streamline the lighting and production process, making it a little easier to get the job done well.

Power

At 24 fps, ISO 800, the Redback reads f/22 at 3', f/11 at 6', and f/8.4 at 9'.

"Magical" Light Quality

There is an inexplicable quality about a parabolic source that some have called "magical." The way the 36 x 16" Spider light wraps around the subject is unique. The raw, undiffused LEDs create specular highlights in the skin and eyes and have been referred to as "beauty light."

Pure White Light

The LEDs used are a hybrid of 2600K (tungsten) and 6500K (daylight) and can be easily cross-faded throughout that entire spectrum, including textbook even dimming from 0-100%. The CRI is 95+ utilizing the Litegear engine.

Super Bright

The unit requires no diffusion and can therefore pack a real punch. The output of the Redback's 3456 LEDs running 24V at 400W is comparable to an umbrella-bounced fixture of similar size with a 2500W HMI bulb.

Easy Rigging

The unit weighs in at 7 lb, 4 oz, making it very easy to rig from the included 5/8" Baby pin either mounted at the front or rear 3/8" thread mounting points, typically with a standard grip head found on any C-stand.

Strong and Compact

The Redback is built robustly with the strongest materials. It is quick to collapse down to a 12 x 8" cylinder - a fraction of its open size, and packs into a rolling travel case that is water and shockproof.

Optional Accessories

The Redback has a steadily growing list of Hudson Spider and 3rd party accessories, which includes diffusion, teasers, soft egg crates, and soft boxes, including a 6 x 1' Octa, called Stealth, weighing in at 12 lb.
