Kino Flo 610 DMX overview

  • 1Description

The Kino Flo VistaBeam 610 DMX - Center Mount (120VAC) fluorescent fixture delivers the equivalent brightness of a 4,000W quartz softlight, while drawing only 8.0 Amps of power at 120V. The stackable 610 is an ideal choice for downlights or traditional stand mounting as fill lights. However you use the 610 you'll continue to save money on operational costs like air-conditioning and lamp replacement due to its cool, efficient design while gaining output thanks to an enhanced parabolic reflector design and Kino Flo's True Match 96W (CFL) twin lamp technology. The DMX-ready VistaBeam, offers 6 addresses for individual lamp remote dimming and a 7th address for high/standard output levels of its 6 tubes from a control console. You can also dim it manually or via an optional hand-held remote on a 15' cable.

When fitted with six optional F96/CFL fluorescent tubes (available separately), this fixture will provide 130 footcandles at a distance of 10 feet. This version of the VistaBeam 610 comes with a center mount, 90 degree louver and a gel frame. The center mount is ideal for location shooting and allows the fixture to swivel 360 degrees to produce varied beam angles.

  • High Output
    The VistaBeam 610 displays a broad soft beam for studio and location lighting. It puts out more light than a 4K quartz softlight (120VAC) but uses only 8.0 Amps of power compared to 34 Amps needed for the quartz light.
    Lightweight Alternative
    Kino Flo designed the VistaBeam series to be a lightweight alternative to conventional studio softlights such as "chicken coops" and "space lights". VistaBeams also do a better job of illuminating interior and exterior sets with daylight quality light than punching HMI's through fabric diffusion boxes. Fitted with narrow spectrum blue or green visual effects lamps, VistaBeams are ideal for composite screen lighting applications. The unique lighting characteristics and fixture design of the VistaBeam have already captured the imagination of film, video and photo lighting professionals worldwide, and have earned the respect of lighting departments grateful for the fresh stream of rental income.
    Understanding "The Beam"
    Generally, fluorescents have a very broad soft light output. The light tends to drop off rapidly which means the units need to be positioned close to the subject they are lighting. Just like the ParaBeam, the VistaBeam has a computer aided designed (CAD) parabolic reflector that was designed to maximize the light output at about 16 feet (5 meters). This achieves two things: It doubles the light output of the lamps and concentrates the light where the lighting director needs it most.
    Included 90 Degree Louver
    In the open face mode the fixture has nothing obstructing the front of the unit. To best see the beam structure, shine it on a white wall. You can see the wide hot center of the beam. The light above and below the beam tapers off in intensity. Although the fixture is square, the beam of light is a broad lateral oval because of the parabolic reflector. The included 90° Louver concentrates the light and behaves much like a 24" barndoor. The beam is slightly oval with a hot center. The light tapers off to a soft edge. Optional 45 degree and 60 degree Louvers are also available.
    VistaBeam Reflector
    The VistaBeam 610 enjoys unique optical characteristics that are very similar to the popular Kino Flo ParaBeam fixtures. Both these lights use parabolic reflectors that put out a highly efficient lateral beam of light. Unlike conventional softlights, such as quartz or HMI sources, which disperse their light in a general pattern, the VistaBeam concentrates its beam of light at about six meters from the fixture. By rotating the VistaBeam fixture either vertically or horizontally on the center mounting system, the operator has control over the orientation of the beam.
    Gel Frame
    The Gel Frame fits into the accessory holder of the fixture. Retractable pins hold the gel frame in place. Eight gel clips are provided to secure the gel to the frame.
    Corner Accessory Block
    The removable Corner Mount blocks are made of high-impact plastic. They are designed to:
  • Absorb shock in case the fixture is dropped
  • Provide hanging points when rigging with ropes or cables
  • Act as rigging points for clipping cards
  • Stack neatly to store multiple fixtures
  • DMX Control Panel
    The VistaBeam 610 uses seven DMX addresses (6 for individual lamps, 7th address to control High Output/Standard Output light levels).
    Kino Flo Lamps
    VistaBeams use high-output 96 Watt T7 Twin tubes. Operating on a proprietary flicker-free ballast, the 34-inch (86cm) T7 lamp produces more lumens per watt than any other high-output True Match lamp. T7's come in True Match KF32 (3200K) tungsten balanced, KF55 (5500K) daylight balanced, and visual effects colors: a 420nm blue and a 550nm green lamp for blue and green screen composite photography. T7 True Match lamps in a VistaBeam are rated for more than 10,000 hours under normal operating conditions. A VistaBeam 610 takes six T7 lamps. A 6K "chicken coop" light source takes six 1,000 Watt bulbs, each costing 20% more per bulb. The cost savings over tungsten bulb replacements is huge.
    DMX Control
    There is an important practical advantage to the long-lived lamps as well. Once a fixture is rigged high up in the studio grid, it can be very difficult to maintain the fixture once the set is built below. As a result, fewer lamp replacements in a hard-to-reach location translate into lower labor costs. And by simply mixing True Match KF55 and KF32 lamps in the VistaBeam, lighting designers can produce a range of color temperatures using the remote DMX protocol without sending crew members to change out color gels.
    Heat Management Design
    The excessive heat produced by tungsten bulbs causes other problems. For example, running at more than 600° Celsius, there is a danger of a faulty lamp exploding and the resulting hot shards of glass damaging the set or injuring personnel under the lights. By contrast, the VistaBeam operates coolly, at about 70° Celsius. The T7 lamps don't explode like a tungsten bulb. Not to mention that the low operating temperature of a VistaBeam affords substantially lower air-conditioning costs.
    Multi-Use - Blue and Green Screen Lighting, Location Fill/Soft Key, Studio Soft Light
    Blue and green screen lighting applications will also benefit from the optical design of the VistaBeam. The units can be positioned closer to the screen at a sharper angle than other lighting fixtures. The result is higher light levels using fewer fixtures. Unlike tungsten far cycs and sky pan lighting systems, the VistaBeam can take blue and green spiked visual effects lamps that further enhance the suitability of the fixtures for composite photography.

    As a soft light instrument, the VistaBeam has a high potential for use on film and TV production sets. All set lighting rental operations profit from equipment that is in steady use. The less time it sits on the shelf, the more profit it generates. The VistaBeam series will not only be a popular location or studio soft key light, but can be used in place of more traditional single application instruments such as those discussed above.
