Broadcast designers of all types have been turning to Elation’s color temperature‐adjustable KL Panel™ for high‐quality soft light illumination since it first hit the market in 2020. Quickly adopted as an ideal full‐color‐spectrum LED soft light, a new XL version of the broadcast‐quality luminaire is now available that extends the size of the original while emitti ng nearly twice the power and oﬀering multi‐ zone control for dynamic eﬀects.
The new KL Panel XL™ LED soft light delivers with superior output, precise color temperature control, full‐spectrum color rendering and an even wash coverage.
Beautiful soft white or full‐color washes
Using a highly‐eﬃcient 544W RGBW+ Lime + Cyan LED Array, the KL Panel XL produces beautifully soft white or full‐color washes up to 44,000 field lumens at a 100° half‐ peak angle. Color reproduction is extremely accurate both to the eye and to the camera with a CRI of 95 while color temperature is easily adjustable from 2,000 to 10,000K for a wide choice of variable color or white shade projections. Additional color tuning is possible through a green‐shift adjustment and virtual gel library to more precisely match the white balance for the camera.
The KL Panel XL’s LED array includes multi‐zone control for dynamic color access, visually interesting eye‐candy and realistic reproduction of eﬀects like fire, lightning, emergency vehicle flashes or a variety of strobe eﬀects.
