MAY THE 4’S BE WITH YOUR CREW
Our big doubt was: Will the G-4 and S-4 series please the most demanding crews out there? We did our best to match their expectations, including standard features in SGM like linear color temperature control from 2,000K to 10,000K, a flexible color filter emulation (91 presets matching LEE catalog), and a wide motorized zoom range (from 9º beam angle to 76º field angle), while listening to the market. Diverse tools are needed for those master lighting professionals who deal with very complex cameras, silent environments, and powerful consoles. It is because of them and their valuable feedback that we developed the Studio Mode.
Our Studio Mode allows the G-4 and S-4 series to mix colors in 5 ways: the RGB + CTC mode for standard users, the more advanced RGBAM + CTC for those who want full control, HSI control for console lovers, mathematical XY coordinates over CIE1931 color space for purists of theatre, and the traditional subtractive CMY mixing used on white light sources. For accurate color adjustments, individual Plus / Minus Green control. Additionally, the fixtures include 16-bit dimming with incandescent curve for venues with a big setup of old tungsten fixtures, LED Frequency adjustment for high speed cameras, and, finally, for those who care about sound there is fan speed over DMX.
Yes, these are good times: you can get the best techniques of all times, and the great improvements of today. And I am not saying the G-4 and S-4 series are the best lighting fixtures out there; I’m just saying that I love them. Maybe you see my point now.
