    Gekko Technology’s kazia 50 and kazia 200 are both hard-source LED luminaires based on the manufacturer’s kleer-colour light engine, with variants for film and television as well as entertainment.

    “The kazia 50 and 200 offer film and television lighting directors and cameramen precise tuneable whites and dimming under local or DMX control,” explained Gekko Technology managing director David Amphlett.

    “As well as tuneable whites in the 2,900 to 6,500 K range, the entertainment version can also produce millions of other colours. The capacity of the lamp to generate high quality whites reduces the need for multiple sources with different capabilities.”

    The kazia 50 is comparable in output brightness to a 400 W tungsten fresnel lamp-head yet consumes only 50 W of electrical power. The kazia 200 has a similar brightness to a 1 kW tungsten source whilst consuming only 190 W of power.

    Like all Gekko LED luminaires, the kazia 50 and 200 generate far less heat than more traditional fixtures. Both use unique colour-feedback technology which ensures consistent colour temperature quality as ambient conditions change or the unit ages. Colour temperature accuracy also remains constant as the light is dimmed.
