Kino Flo Lighting Systems

About Us

Since developing a color science department for its True Match® tubes in the 1980’s, Kino Flo has been at the forefront of LED design and manufacturing, creating a color-correct, color stable line of tungsten and daylight LED emitters.  The company has maintained color quality for more than three decades across all product models.  From film to digital cinema cameras, to other color critical industries such as smart phone calibration and art restoration studios, Kino Flo is recognized for unrivaled color management.

From blockbuster franchise movies in Hollywood to emerging production centers around the world such as Atlanta, Eastern Europe and China, Kino Flo lighting has played a starring role in production lighting for the motion picture, television, TV broadcast, and photography communities. Kino Flo has earned an Academy Award for technical achievement and continues to advance the art and science of soft lighting with a ground-breaking family of LED based lighting systems.

Kino Flo has developed a line of LED portable systems with the same award-winning elements as the 4Bank, but with Kino Flo designed LEDs and Kino Flo programmed light controllers.  The FreeStyle Tube Systems can be dismantled and assembled quickly to adapt to changing production challenges.  The four basic components, an LED controller, head cable (25ft), modular fixture head and removable mounting system have been advanced with LED technology.

Kino Flo makes another leap forward in color management firmware and color rendering.  The company is pioneering a new generation of LED softlights that include camera look-up tables for harmonizing. Kino Flo lighting with cinema cameras and a suite of upgradable color and special effects features via Kino Flo’s proprietary True Match® firmware that are pushing the color space to new artistic levels.  Like the great European art masters of old, cinematographers can select and mix their own LED “pigments” to control the look of their image. 

Gaffers and set lighting technicians enjoy a growing collection of premium softlight “brushes”, like the new FreeStyle LED Tubes, to paint spaces and faces with white light, color and effects.  Kino Flo has been expanding its wireless DMX production lighting, moving beyond its legacy fixtures with new FreeStyle LED portable systems, adding new designs for the Celeb LEDs, debuting a value line of Image LED studio fixtures, and expanding options for video lighting with new Diva-Lite LEDs.

As in the past, Kino Flo would like to say “thank you” to all of our colleagues and customers, to our friends and families who have supported Kino Flo through the years, and with whom we look forward to a future bright with your genius and insight.
