Chipsets and Color Accuracy

The full-color LED chipset goes just beyond 1500W of power output that rivals industry-standard 1800W HMIs, providing expanded color controls across its broad 2000 to 10,000K CCT range. It also offers green-magenta adjustment and impressive coverage of over 90% of colors within the Rec. 2020 color space. The dual-blue LED chipset design allows the light to achieve broad spectral reproduction, boasting an SSI of daylight and tungsten at 86 and 89, respectively. This ensures industry-leading color quality in all shooting environments. The CS15 outputs up to 32,600 lux at a distance of 9.8' using its included 35° reflector.

Professional Connectivity

Designed with professionals in mind, the CS15 offers advanced connectivity options, including Sidus Link app control, LumenRadio CRMX, Art-Net & sACN via etherCON, and 16-bit DMX512. These features seamlessly integrate the fixture into existing lighting workflows, providing lighting technicians and programmers with complete control over its operation.

Expanded Mounting Options

Featuring dual accessory mounts, the CS15 offers both the universal Bowens Mount and the innovative electronic A-Mount compatibility. This unique combination makes it one of the most adaptable fixtures on the market, catering to a wide range of modifier options, such as the versatile Spotlight Max. The A-Mount, designed for heavy-duty modifiers, including the optional F14 Fresnel, guarantees stability, durability, and optimized color accuracy while supporting motorized focus control. The Aputure mount is also compatible with the optional 20 and 50° reflectors.

Advanced Liquid Cooling Technology

To effectively manage heat dissipation and maximize light output, the CS15 incorporates advanced liquid cooling technology. This innovative design guarantees that users can access the full potential of the fixture's light output while maintaining optimal performance.

Additional Benefits

The fixture comes with 15 built-in lighting effects, XY color control, advanced HSI, over 300 gel presets, and max and constant output modes. 0.1 to 100% stepless dimming is available as well as PWM and high-speed flicker-free dimming modes. Adding to its versatility, it also supports battery operation via dual 48 VDC inputs. In terms of convenience, the CS15's included high-output control box features side and top-facing ports, and a control box handcart is also supplied for easy transportation. If needed, users can also benefit from an optional motorized yoke that allows for smooth remote operation.
