Add this 650W Vortex8 2x1 RGBW LED Light from Creamsource to your high-end production for a wide range of colors, effects, and powerful illumination that rivals a 1200W HMI light. The Vortex8 features a massive 14,000 lux in daylight at 9.8', a color temperature range of 2200 to 15,000K, full RGBW spectrum LEDs, full hue/saturation control, 0 to 100% dimming control, and a CRI/TLCI of 95.

The RGB LED panel features a solid redesign aimed at professional DOPs and gaffers with durable aluminum and technopolymer construction. Its array of 512 powerful LEDs in 128 groups allows for a tight beam angle of 20° using a series of SPOT lenses. The light features an updated CreamOS version that provides full configuration of color, temperature, digital gels, and effects. The front of the frame features a quick release mount that allows you to drop in a gel, the included diffuser panel, a honeycomb, or other accessories.

In addition to the integrated button, LED display, and dial controls on the back, connectivity options include 5-pin DMX input and output, an included wired remote, a Creamsource Accessory port, integrated LumenRadio Timo Two antennas with Bluetooth, Ethernet, and a USB Type-A port. The light can also be synced with slow-motion cameras to match their frame rate in high speeds up to 5000 fps.

The fixture features a built-in power supply, so no need for a separate ballast. The included powerCON cable allows you to plug the light in and it's ready to go. The light is kept cool by three variable-speed fans that are rated at IP67 to protect the internal electronics from moisture, and they can be turned off remotely when a quiet set is required. A removable yoke is included that snaps onto the NATO-style mounts on either side of the light, and it is ready to mount onto a stand. It also features eight 3/8"-16 threads for various mounting options.

Bright LED Rivaling HMI

Vortex8 is a 650W high-power RGB LED system in a 2x1 configuration, offering the intensity of some 1200W HMI systems. It achieves a massively bright 14000 lux at 9.8' and has an ultra-narrow 20° beam angle.

Effects and Colors

Effects and digital color gels are built into the latest CreamOS architecture in addition to a range of new features wrapped into an intuitive user interface.

IP65 Weather Resistant

The Vortex8 is built and designed to withstand all weather conditions and is rated IP65. The Vortex8 is an ultra-quiet fan-based system with optimum thermal efficiency. The fan system and heatsink placement allows for core electronics to be sealed and isolated.

Connectivity

Interaction between Vortex8 and various third-party instruments and protocols are endless, opening various wired and wireless control options. Connectivity options include built-in LumenRadio CRMX TimoTwo, Ethernet, Bluetooth, 5-pin DMX, Wi-Fi, USB Type-A, and a Creamsource accessory port.

New features include RDM support, custom white point for CCT Crossfade HSI and CCT Crossfade RGBW color modes, DMX user presets for quick access to different DMX setups, save/restore settings plus user presets to USB drive, and HTP merging of up to four incoming sACN sources. These new features offer better creative control to cinematographers, gaffers, and board operators. For more information and to download the latest firmware please visit the Creamsource website.

Operating System and Interface

The new Vortex Series has been built with new software architecture at its base, supporting a myriad of new features, protocols, and connectivity options in CreamOS. With the ability to control and map eight zones, the new feature set has been wrapped into a new user interface, enhancing the user experience.

Design

Built with elegance and durability in mind, the Vortex8 is made with aluminum machining and a technopolymer infusion with the PSU as well as the antennas integrated into the head.
