Westcott Unveils New Flex Cine Lighting System

Westcott has released the Flex Cine System, redesigned flexible LED mats backed by a lifetime limited warranty, a smart Wireless DMX Dimmer, V-mount power and a complete range of lightweight LED modifiers.

Westcott said the Flex Cine System has been designed to meet the demands of modern filmmakers. New Flex Cine LED mats are ideal for travel and lighting in compact spaces. Available with full color spectrum RGBW, 2800K to 6000K bi-color, or 5600K daylight output in sizes ranging from 1' x 1' to 2' x 2', these powerful lights offer pristine flicker-free lighting up to 960fps for any situation.

They're lightweight, water-resistant, equipped with powerful magnetic corners, and backed by an unprecedented lifetime limited warranty. Flex Cine mats are operated by a smart dimmer for flexible LEDs. This Flex Cine Wireless DMX Dimmer offers both DMX512 Input/Output 5-Pin Male/Female XLR and wireless DMX capability for controlling one or multiple dimmers via WiFi Host/Client Mode.

This dimmer is equipped with Hybrid Pulse Width Modulation that allows Flex LED mats to be dimmed down to one percent while maintaining a flicker-free output up to 960 frames per second. Mat Sensing Technology detects which Flex LED mat is connected, specifies the required voltage and customizes the available dimmer controls. This controller is backwards compatible with original Flex mats with an optional TE-9 pin adapter.

When utilizing the dimmer's on-board controls, users have access to a dynamic range of tools that control color and intensity, including 120+ pre-loaded color gel presets with daylight or tungsten backing, source-matching presets, user-defined presets, CCT controls, and more.

When operating DMX over Art-Net, the dimmer is compatible with mobile apps. Westcott has partnered with Luminair, which offers a dedicated profile as well as advanced lighting effects and controls.

The Flex Cine Wireless DMX Dimmer is designed with a built-in V-mount to accept cord-free 26 volt Lithium-Ion Batteries, including the company's travel-friendly 150 watt battery option, or the Flex Cine AC Adapter. Users can also power a 1' x 1' bi-color or daylight LED mat with a compatible 14.4-14.8 volt V-mount battery.
