FreeStyle 21 LED DMX System
All Prices Shown are Excluding GST.
Kino Flo’s award-winning FreeStyle 21 unleashes your creative side with a quick-release feature to remove the LED panel from the fixture, cutting the weight nearly in half (from 11.6 lbs/5.3kg to 7 lbs/3.2kg) and creating a smaller form factor for better rigging flexibility. The LED panel’s corner bumpers can be used to hang from rope or wire. The panel also takes a Twist-On mount for working on light stands. The Freestyle 21 comes complete with the full color, programmable FreeStyle controller, Head Cable (25ft), Complete Fixture with removable LED panel, and a twist-on KinoGrip Center Mount. Honeycomb 90° or 60° louvers, mounted with Velcro, give direction to the light, and when removed the panel displays a broad soft beam across the set.
The FreeStyle 21 is known for its high color rendering white light, full hue and saturation color, cinema gel choices, and RGB chromatic selection via the AC/DC FreeStyle 150Watt controller. It has built-in Lumen Radio wireless DMX; no extra cost for wireless receiver accessories. The light can also be operated directly up to 50 feet away from the controller via Kino Flo head cables.
The Freestyle's driver technology achieves bright, soft light with continuous dimming from 100% to 0% on a linear or
square curve without flicker at higher camera speeds or at varied shutter angles. There is no light level change when shifting
from 2500K to 9900K, and the color doesn't change when the light levels rise or fall.
Color and luminosity remain stable over the rated life of the LED's using Kino Flo's advanced True Match® daylight and
tungsten color management system, which has been an unqualified success since Kino Flo introduced the idea of soft panel
True Match Celeb Studio LED’s six years ago. Passive cooling keeps the LED’s in good shape for a longer usable life than fixtures that require electric fans.

The White menu features Dimming, tunable Kelvin range from 2700K tungsten to 6500K daylight and Green/Magenta
The Green/Magenta control can be scaled from 0- to 100, where 25 = ¼ correction, 50 = ½ correction and
100 = full correction.
In the Gels/Hue menu, the Kelvin range is extended to 2500K Kelvin to 9900K daylight and a fourth channel is called
The Gel channel includes Kino Flo presets such as blue & green screen, sodium vapor, mercury vapor as well as over 100
well-known lighting gels. The gel function can be applied to any Kelvin temperature and by pushing the control knob
the gel will be applied or removed. A fifth channel called Hue Angle (Hue) and sixth channel Saturation (Sat) are also included in the gel menu.
These two channels behave similar to a traditional color wheel, where white light is in the center and Hue Angle determines the color along a 360-degree range and Saturation
determines how much color is applied. With the Hue Angle and Saturation it is possible to create over 2 million color combinations!
The RGB color menu gives individual control of red, green and blue LED’s. The RGB mode is a great way to work with apps with
predetermined RGB presets or color wheels. RGB menu is also a great feature to dial in specific gel RGB values or when controlling
colors from a DMX desk.
The FX (Effects) menu introduced on June 1, 2018 provides access to popular effects such as Candle, Fire, TV, Police, Lightning, Paparazzi, Pulse
and Scroll. When on the desired effect, there are several pre-sets as well as control parameters that can be altered. For example,
in the Lightning effect there is a “Storm” and “Frankenstein” preset, but it is possible to change Rate to provide additional variation.
True Match® 4.0 Firmware update in September 2019 includes groundbreaking features: CIE xy, Camera ProfilesLUTs and Color Space selection.
The CIE xy determines the color displayed by its X and Y space coordinates. For example, with a handheld color meter like the
C-800, users can obtain a CIE xy reading from any light source and input the CIE xy coordinates into the Kino Flo LED fixture
to match colors closely.
Camera Profiles LUTs available for the following cinema cameras and more to follow: Panavsion DXL, Sony Venice, Arri Alexa,
Panasonic Varicam. Kino Flo’s True Match® 4.0 firmware balances their LED lights to the cameras rather than the other way around.
The Kino Flo designed tungsten and daylight LED emitters harmonize with the camera sensors even as the color temperature settings
The Color Space defines the RGB color space (white point and RGB primary colors) as a means of matching color points between manufacturing. Defining the color space takes the guesswork out of post-production workflow and color grading. Included in the
4.0 firmware are: rec 709/sRGB, P3 D65, rec 2020, and ESTA E1.54.
The FreeStyle 152 LED DMX controller
The firmware listed above is loaded onto the FreeStyle LED controller and can operate the Freestyle 21 fixture remotely with a
25ft extension cable or can drive the panel directly when mounted to the back of the fixture. The Freestyle controller (LED-152X),
DMX in/out ports for cable as well as wireless DMX connectivity (Lumen Radio®).
The controller features
AC voltage input
100-240vac (1.25 Amps at 120vac) as well as a 3-Pin XLR for 24vdc operation (6.25A).
The FreeStyle 152 LED DMX controller firmware is updatable from a PC using the Mini B USB data port.
