Fiilex Introduces Matrix II Dense Matrix LED Light Fixtures

Fiilex has introduced the Matrix II RGBW and the Matrix II Tunable White light fixtures, both extending the capability of the company’s signature Dense Matrix LED technology.

Fiilex said the Matrix II RGBW features four control modes: CCT, HSI, RGBW and Gel Presets. The fixture’s Dense Matrix LEDs, which combine dozens of LED chips under a single glass optic, results in a powerful, compact source with extremely high color-accuracy and boasts multi-wavelength color groups.

Other manufacturers have single chips in their array representing a hue range. However, 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.

The Matrix II fixtures draw 340 watts of power and produce 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 II supports additional optics and accessories that can 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 (FLXA088). It can also be used as a front-focused light with the optional Quad-Fresnel, which increases beam intensity by three times.

The Matrix II is available in two models. The Matrix II Tunable White ($2,495) and the RGBW model ($2,995) both have an improved mechanical design, smoother dimming down to zero percent, magenta/green hue adjustment and tunable CCT (2800-6500K and 2800-10000K respectively).

The Matrix II Tunable White fixture is for the user who is slightly more price sensitive and is primarily concerned with a fixture that produces the highest quality white light. The housing of each Matrix II fixture is constructed of high grade aluminum along with ruggedized rubber at the impact points making them extremely hard-wearing and shock-resistant.
