F&V at NAB 2016 has introduced their UltraColor Soft series, a new line of ultra-soft LED fixtures. Upfront features are bi-colour, TLCI of up to 99, compact, bright, passively cooled and of course super soft. With the optional intensifier, the Z400S Soft provides up to 4400 lux @ 1m of UltraSoft light with a beam angle of 50°, flicker free up to 15,000 fps. The light beam without the intensifier will go to 130˚.
As the fixtures are bi-colour you can adjust the CCT to set the mood of a scene or to match other light sources. F&V claim you don’t experience brightness loss at daylight or tungsten compared to mixed colour temperatures, as is common with other bi-colour fixtures.
The KS-1 Softbox includes a grid to focus your soft light and to reduce spill. A hard honey comb option is also available that attaches to the face of the light fixture.
You could use their space light to bring up the ambient levels of your scene or use it as a large, super-soft key light.
The UltraColor Z400S Soft will start shipping in May 2016 and the Z800S Soft will become available in June 2016.
