Godox, a leading manufacturer of photography and video equipment, has unveiled a new bi-colour LED light that offers a high output and a wide range of colour temperatures. The Godox KnowLED MG1200Bi COB LED light is designed for those who need a versatile and reliable light source for their creative projects.
A 1200W LED light with adjustable colour temperature
The Godox KnowLED MG1200Bi COB LED light is a 1200W LED light that can produce a luminous flux of up to 86,100 lux at 5600K at 3m with the optional Fresnel lens. This is comparable to a 1.8kW PAR light, which is commonly used in film and television production. The light also has a high colour rendering index (CRI) of 96+ and a television lighting consistency index (TLCI) of 96+, which means it can reproduce colours accurately and consistently.
One of the main features of the Godox KnowLED MG1200Bi COB LED light is that it can adjust its colour temperature from 2800K to 6500K, allowing users to match the ambient light or create different moods and effects. The light also has a dimming range of 0% to 100%, which can be controlled by a wireless remote, a smartphone app, or a DMX console. The light also has four preset modes: CCT, HSI, RGB, and FX, which can be used to create various lighting scenarios.
A durable and portable design with multiple accessories
The Godox KnowLED MG1200Bi COB LED light has a durable and portable design that makes it suitable for various shooting environments. The light has an aluminium alloy body that is resistant to corrosion and impact, and a fanless cooling system that reduces noise and extends the lifespan of the LED chip. The light also has a V-mount battery plate that can power the light for up to two hours at full power, or longer at lower power levels.
The Godox KnowLED MG1200Bi COB LED light comes with multiple accessories that can enhance its performance and versatility. The light has a Bowens mount that can attach various modifiers, such as softboxes, reflectors, snoots, and grids. The light also comes with a Fresnel lens that can focus the beam angle from 10° to 45°, increasing the brightness and creating sharper shadows. Additionally, the light comes with a carrying case, a power cord, a wireless remote, and a DMX cable.
A competitive price for a professional-grade LED light
The Godox KnowLED MG1200Bi COB LED light is priced at $2,999 USD, which is significantly lower than other similar products on the market. For instance, the ARRI SkyPanel S60-C, which is a popular bi-colour LED panel with a similar output and colour range, costs $5,850 USD. The Godox KnowLED MG1200Bi COB LED light offers a more compact and affordable alternative for professional filmmakers who need a powerful and flexible LED light.
The Godox KnowLED MG1200Bi COB LED light is expected to be available in September 2023. It will be showcased at the IBC Show in Amsterdam from September 14 to September 18. The IBC Show is one of the world’s most influential media, entertainment and technology events, where thousands of exhibitors and visitors gather to discover the latest trends and innovations in the industry.
