Kinoflo Mimic – ahead of its time

Feb 14, 2023

Future-proof performance, on set freedom and patented technology embodied in a new concept.

Kinoflo Mimic is an image based video lighting tile that creates the utmost realism on set with its innovative ability to mirror content while instantly applying a higher tonal and colour rendering range.

Kinoflo Mimic is a first of its kind that delivers extended spectral bandwidth and cinematic colour fidelity when lighting talent and set elements in virtual production environments.

Brightness that speaks volumes. Successfully lighting foregrounds relative to backgrounds in a volume requires the level of illumination that Mimic has been engineered to deliver. LED screens traditionally output between 800 – 1,200 NITS. By comparison, Mimic outputs 8,000 NITS.

Mimic’s capabilities go beyond lighting the foreground by direct video feed while filling out the spectrum, with the ability to shoot as high as 960 frames per second and offer as many as 32 Alpha channels at 30 frames per second.

Mimic incorporates advancements that are ahead of their time, innovations that the industry will be growing into in the years ahead.

Driven by the Megapixel VR HELIOS LED processor,  Mimic 120 is a lighting fixture that delivers unprecedented on-set flexibility for control through either the Helios processor or by assigning certain functionality to the lighting desk. This resolves jurisdictional issues in the filmmaking community between VFX and on set lighting teams.

Embodied in a lightweight carbon fibre frame, Mimic adapts to on-set configurations with easy mobility and expands real-time and post-production options with technology that enables latency-free synchronisation to an LED volume while affording lighting departments control over parameters such as dimming and positioning and colour control.

MIMIK 120 incorporates Kino Flo’s innovative and patented Matchmakker technology that addresses the inherent challenges associated with lighting in LED volumes, translating an incoming RGB video signal into five individual emitters (warm white, cool white, red, green and blue) to generate synchronised, full spectrum foreground lighting for the utmost realism on set.

Enter a new era of extended spectral bandwidth that delivers cinematic colour fidelity on set.
