Kino Flo® Lighting Systems’ True Match® FreeStyle LED tubes are specially designed for operation in FreeStyle T44 & T24 fixtures for film production or stage design lighting. The FreeStyle LED tubes display Kino Flo’s True Match white light and RGBWW color management system found in Kino Flo’s LED lighting fixtures. The tubes are 4ft (1.2m) & 2ft (0.6m). On camera, FreeStyle LED tubes photograph with the same softness, the same subtle color reproduction as Kino Flo’s award-winning T12 high-output lamps. In addition to high color rendering, cinematographers will see the difference the 310° LED tube makes when operated in a fixture or out of the fixture as a remote “sabre” of light. Paired with the FreeStyle fixture and light intensifying reflector, the tube projects soft light forward at a 100° beam angle at about the same light levels you’d get from a 1000W tungsten softlight.

The White menu features Dimming, tunable Kelvin range from 2700K tungsten to 6500K daylight and Green/Magenta
control channels. 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 Gel.
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 in/out, 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 Profiles LUTs 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
Sekonic 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
are adjusted.

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 140 LED DMX controller                                             The FreeStyle LED Tube
                     
The firmware listed above is loaded onto the FreeStyle LED controller and can operate the Freestyle T44 & T24 fixtures remotely with
a 25ft extension cable. The Freestyle controller (LED-140X), includes standard DMX in/out ports for cable as well as wireless DMX connectivity (Lumen Radio®). The controller features universal AC voltage input 100-240vac (1.25 Amps at 120vac) as well as a
3-Pin XLR for 24vdc operation (6.25A).

The FreeStyle 140 LED DMX controller firmware is updatable from a PC using the Mini B USB data port.

Control Panel - White Mode

                
A) On /Off: On = Green light displayed. Off = Red light displayed. The display and all menu settings can be operated while the
     power button is in the Off position, as long as power is applied to the controller. The On /Off button only controls the light source.

B) Menu: Provides access to menu options such as General settings, Reset, DMX and DMX Wireless settings, Camera LUTs &
    Color Space.
    Shortcut: While on control screen, press and hold for 3 seconds to switch through menus (White, Gels & Hue, RGB, CIE xy, FX).

C) Preset Buttons: Factory defaults left to right are: 2700K, 3200K, 5000K and 6500K. G/M default value is 000.
     User can also use these preset buttons to store custom Kelvin and G/M settings.

D) Display: Provides access to Dim, Kelvin, G/M, and DMX channel. Factory reset will show: Dim = 10%, Kelvin = 2700K, G/M = 000,
     DMX = 001.

E) Lock: Press the Lock button to disable all buttons and Control knob. Press for 3 seconds to restore displayed presets to
    default factory settings.

F) Mode: Press to navigate from Dim to Kelvin and G/M settings. When in sub-menus, pressing Mode always returns you to main display.
     When DMX is applied, use Mode to access DMX channel on main display. Shortcut: Long press will bring you back one step.

G) Data Port: Mini B USB for firmware updates.

H) Control Knob: Manually adjusts Dim, Kelvin, G/M levels and DMX address. Press the Control knob to toggle between
     Fine and Coarse increments or when selecting options within menus.

DMX Note: Each LED Fixture has an “AUTO TERMINATE” feature. The last fixture that does not have an XLR cable attached to the
                  DMX “Out” port will automatically terminate.

FreeStyle LED System

The FreeStyle T44/T24 LED System (SYS-FT44U/SYS-FT24U) consists of:  FreeStyle T44/T24 LED Fixture plus 4 x FS-48 LED Tubes or
4 x FS-24 LED Tubes (fig. 1), Mounting Plate (fig. 2), FreeStyle 140X LED DMX Controller (fig.3), and Extension Cable (fig.4). 

It was designed in this manner to allow the greatest flexibility in lighting solutions for challenging situations.

       
 
       
 
   
  The FreeStyle T44/T24 Fixture

The FreeStyle T44/T24 Fixture houses the tubes and is comprised of built-in barndoors, a Louver, Reflector, and tube Harness.
The Louver and Reflector are held in place with Velcro fasteners. There is a strain relief on the tube Harness to ensure the connectors
don’t pull off the lamps during operation. To get the harness away from the fixture, turn the ¼ turn fastener and rotate counter-clockwise to release.
       
 
   
 
 

FreeStyle T44/T24 Fixture can be used in several configurations:

1) Complete fixture with all components combined.
2) "Harness Only" - The wiring harness is removed from the fixture so that the user can build a softbox, hide behind Plexiglass or rig into
     tight locations. The wiring harness uses Kino Flo designed Tube connectors so tubes can be operated independently of the fixture.
3) Can use Louver to give direction to the light or remove louver to give broad coverage over an area, such as lighting blue and
    green screens etc.

Kino Flo tubes can operate inside the fixture or independently with only the wiring harness.

   
 


   

  The FreeStyle Reflector has a unique design to accommodate the aluminum channel on the back of the FreeStyle tube. It provides even light distribution and maximizes light output. In addition, it acts as a heatsink and allows the FreeStyle Tubes to run cooler.
