Space Force™ octo

The Next Frontier in LED Space / Soft lighting

Introducing the new Chroma-Q® Space Force™ octo LED fixture - the next frontier in space lighting. The Space Force™ octo is a cutting-edge variable white LED Space Light that is a modern replacement for conventional space lights or soft light sources commonly used in film and TV studios around the world. The Space Force™ benefits from cool running, energy efficiency, lightweight design, and minimum maintenance. CCT tuneable between 2,800K and 6,000K, and natively single source, the diffuse nature of its output negates the need for silks or skirts. Extensive RDM functionality is provided through wired, or the optional LumenRadio CRMX, connections.

Hanging options include a standard bridle, optional yoke, and a low-profile hanging bracket.

Smooth, Soft Output
The Space Force™ octo is a highly efficient and natively single source, removing the need for skirts or silks to diffuse the light.

Easy Setup
As a result of its low profile, lightweight (only 8 kg / 17.6 lbs), and skirt-free design, the Space Force™ octo is quick and easy to set up at any height.

A Variable White Light for Every Application
The Space Force™ octo is available as a variable white 2,800K – 6,000K. Every unit is factory calibrated, to ensure consistent output and colour temperature.

The Space Force™ octo uses a fraction of the power required by conventional fixtures while delivering all of the performance you require - providing an output of up to 26,700 lumens, which is comparable to a traditional 6kW fixture. Not only is the power consumption lower, but so too is the heat produced - ensuring a cooler environment and lower air conditioning costs.

Convection Cooled
Using the same proven convection cooling technology found in other Chroma-Q® LED models - which eliminates the need for noisy cooling fans - the Space Force™ octo provides totally silent running in operation.

Long Life
The Space Force™ octo utilises LED technology to ensure consistent long-life performance - removing the need for costly regular maintenance associated with conventional fixtures.

High Colour Rendering Indexes
The Space Force™ octo provides high color rendering indexes, which are requirements for light sources used in the film and TV industry to ensure accurate colour rendering.

Theatrical Grade Dimming
All Chroma-Q® products come with theatrical grade dimming, and the Space Force™ octo is no exception. This technique emulates the extremely smooth dimming curve of a tungsten fixture, ensuring there is no stepping on the output. This allows the output to be smoothly controlled even at the low end of the dimming curve.

Built to Last
Built to last, the Space Force requires minimal maintenance and retains colour consistency between units owing to our LED emitter inspection and proprietary ColorSure™ LED calibration system.

Flicker-Free Operation
The Space Force™ octo features adjustable PWM frequencies to provide flicker-free operation on even the most demanding shoots.

Complete Control
Unlike conventional fixtures, the Space Force™ octo has onboard power and control electronics - eliminating costly power cables and the need for dimmer racks. Control of colour temperature and intensity is available via DMX wired, the optional LumenRadio CRMX wireless, or locally via the onboard encoders.

Versatile Mounting Options
The Space Force™ octo features multiple mounting options. In addition to a built-in standard bridle and suspension hanger brackets for stacking multiple units together, optional accessories include a manual yoke and a low-profile hanging bracket.

Full Range Of Accessories
For real versatility, the Space Force™ octo is available with a range of optional accessories, including a black mini skirt, soft egg crate, cyc skirt/silk, soft target kit, and a soft lantern. In addition, the optional LumenRadio connectivity is also available as a user-installed accessory, for retro-fitting if required at a later date.
