Fiilex’s Matrix II RGBW brings full-color control to Fiilex’s Matrix line of soft-source LED punch lights. The Dense Matrix LEDs in the Matrix II RGBW boast multi-wavelength color groups. Other manufacturers have single chips in their array representing a hue range. Fiilex has designed its array with multiple custom chips covering a specific hue. Each chip outputs a specific portion of the hue wavelength and when combined produces a broader and deeper range of hue than other fixtures can produce.
RGBW fixture draws 320W of power and produces an output greater than a 1K tungsten soft light. This output is generated by the four Dense Matrix LED clusters that are set into a custom-designed reflecting chamber and enclosed by a layer of diffusion. With its four LED sources, the Matrix supports additional optics and accessories that can easily reshape the fixture’s illumination. The fixture is compatible with light banks from Chimera as well as DoP Choice when using the speed ring accessory. It can also be used as a front-focused light with the optional Quad-Fresnel, which increases beam intensity by 3x. The Matrix is also available in an alternate Tunable White model.
The interesting aspect is that Fiilex was showing a frame that takes 4 of the Matrix II fixture and makes a quad large format fixture. More on that below from No Film School.
