The Redback 36" Octagon Parabolic LED Basic Kit is built around a 36" diameter fixture that can be set up in 5 minutes, broken down to a 12 x 8" cylinder, and packed in its shock and waterproof rolling travel case.

The fixture's eight hinged aluminum and steel arms can be formed into a parabolic shape with a total of 3456 closely-spaced LEDs that combine to create a soft continuous source.

Using the included 90-305 VAC Litegear power supply/dimmer, the Redback has color temperature with a wide range of 2600 to 6500K with a CRI of 95+ - an indicator of superior accuracy in color rendering. It can also be dimmed from 0 to 100% and while you can make these adjustments locally on the fixture, you can also do it remotely via onboard DMX from a console.

For those requiring directional control and softness options this kit also includes a Redback Parabolic Reflector that includes an Ultrabounce fitted cover, Magic Cloth diffuser, and full and 1/2 grid cloth diffusers.

Design The key to recreating the umbrella bounced light look with LEDs is to have them positioned closely together, spread evenly along the length of a parabolic-shaped armature, and focused outwards, not bounced, combining to create one attractive, continuous soft source. This phenomenon makes direct LED a viable alternative to bounced HMI or Tungsten.

Power At 24 fps, ISO 800, the Redback reads f/22 at 3', f/11 at 6', and f/8.4 at 9'.

Super Bright The unit requires no diffusion and can therefore pack a real punch. The output of the Redback's 3456 LEDs running 24V at 400W is comparable to an umbrella-bounced fixture of similar size with a 2500W HMI bulb.

Easy Rigging The unit weighs in at 7 lb, 4 oz, making it very easy to rig from the included 5/8" Baby pin either mounted at the front or rear 3/8" thread mounting points, typically with a standard grip head found on any C-stand.

Strong and Compact The Redback is built robustly with the strongest materials. It is quick to collapse down to a 12 x 8" cylinder - a fraction of its open size, and packs into a rolling travel case that is water and shockproof.

Optional Accessories The Redback has a steadily growing list of Hudson Spider and 3rd party accessories, which includes diffusion, teasers, soft egg crates, and soft boxes, including a 6 x 1' Octa, called Stealth, weighing in at 12 lb.
