Product Detail
Included Items

Kino Flo Lighting Systems’ renowned Image 40 fixture series served for decades as the leading soft source for cinema, television and video production studios. Its success serves as the foundation for the new Image L40 LED fixture, a narrow profile, shallow depth panel exquisitely suited to lighting small to medium-size greenscreen stages, as well as talent lighting on television news and video broadcast sets. Kino Flo’s Image L40 LED has already made its mark as a value priced studio light that packs a 1K equivalent output and comes complete with Kino Flo’s True Match® 3.0 firmware to control superior white light (>96 PRI/98 TLCI) and a full hue and saturation gamut.

The versatile Image L40 has proven ideal for grid installations with variable beam pitch control to ensure an even flow of illumination from the top of a set wall (as high as 20 feet/7 meters) all the way out to stage forward. The beam spread from downfacing fixtures can produce a wide soft base in studio spaces too small for traditional spacelight designs. The Image L40 comes with manual and remote DMX wireless control of the mired shift, color selection, dimming and visual effects features unique to Kino Flo lighting products. Its photometric and control specifications are available for free download to pre-visual studio design programs and lighting console profiles.

Energy Efficiency

The Image L80 LED DMX operates on universal AC power and needs only 4A (120VAC) to produce more lumens than a 1k tungsten softlight. The Images cost savings from low energy and long lamp life continues Kino Flo’s reputation as an environmentally friendly lighting company.

Long LED Life

Rated lifetime is up to 50,000 hours. With its long LED life, the Image LED's unique design maintains its color-correct color temperature.

True Match® Color-Correct

As with all Kino Flo products, the Image L80 LED has been specially formulated to match the spectral distribution curves of today’s HD film and video equipment.  The Image L80 LED has a high color rendering index of CRI 95.  Even while dimming, the fixture is flicker-free and without color shift.

Heat Management Design

For Kino Flo, heat management is a critical design element of fixture design. The physical heat or buildup heat within the LED fixture will directly influence the color temperature, lumen performance and life of the LED.

The Image L80's unique design operates coolly, consumes very low energy (4A, 120VAC) and is properly ventilated to maintain a stable color temperature.

A well maintained temperature extends the lumen maintenance, color temperature and life of the LED.

Cost Savings

Cost savings attributed to the Image L80 LED cover a broad range of concerns:

  • Low energy costs
  • Less heat so low air conditioning expenses

Energy Savings Calculations

With the push for reducing fossil fuel consumption, TV studios are looking at cooler more efficient lighting systems to reduce the costs and save energy.  Part of this process involves generating energy values to determine savings. One of the most important values is Btu/kWh.British Thermal Units per Kilowatt Hour

Any light generates a percentage of usable light and the rest in heat. For example, a standard incandescent light bulb converts only 11 percent of its electrical input into visible light, while the rest is dissipated directly as heat. There are energy costs involved in cooling the studio environment. The measure of Btu/kWh is a means of calculating the thermal loads related to operating lighting.

Use the following information to calculate Btu/kWh Watts to Btu:

1 kWh = 3413 Btu/Hr
1 Watt = 3.413 Btu/Hr
3.413 Btu per Watt-hour

Diffusion (Gel) Frame

  GFR I80 detail GFR I80

The diffusion frame is secured to the fixture by 4 spring-loaded pins. Align the pins with the oval receptacle holes on the edge of the fixture. 

The diffusion frame comes with Clips. Cut the diffusion to size and use the Clips to fasten the diffusion to the Frame.


Silver Louver

 LVR I80 S  LVR I80 S detail  

The silver louver provides beam control with minimum light loss.  Place the long edge of the Louver into the lower channel containing a set of leaf springs. Press down on the Louver and slip the upper edge of the Louver into the upper channel of the fixture.

Note: To eliminate multiple shadows, the Silver Louver should only be used in combination with white diffusion.


SnapBag and SnapGrid

 DFS L80 S open face DFS L80 S 

The SnapBag accessory is a lightweight fabric tailor-made for the Image LED fixtures. It slips over the fixture and is attached with straps.  The reflective material intensifies the soft light.  The removable grid cloth attaches to the inside with Velcro.

  LVR CE840 S

The SnapGrid accessory is constructed of pre-stretched fireproof fabric with a built-in stainless steel frame.  It unfolds and snaps into place.  It can only be used with the corresponding SnapBag and is attached with Velcro.  It cannot be used by itself.



  BRD CE8 Accessory Barndoors are sold in sets of 4.  They are designed so that they can be individually mounted.

DMX Control

IMG L80 DMX controls 

The Image LED's DMX operate on three DMX channels (in White mode) using DMX512 (six DMX channels in Color mode).  The first channel operates dimming; the 2nd channel operates Kelvin color temperature control; the 3rd channel operates the Hue.

In Gels/Hue Color mode: 4th channel operates the Gel; 5th channel operates the Hue angle and the 6th channel operates the Saturation. In RGB Color mode, 4th channel operates Red; 5th channel operates Green and the 6th channel operates Blue.

 Controls View Dimmer Knob The Image LED's DMX include a built-in Lumen Radio receiver and can be operated wirelessly with a Lumen Radio transmitter (sold separately).  Wireless is an option to using DMX cables.  For more information on Lumen Radio Receiver/Transmitter, see
