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.

The provided 180-degree Teaser (basically a large barndoor) allows selective lighting, while the deluxe kit's 40-degree fabric grid imparts directional control. 

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'.

Pure White Light The LEDs used are a hybrid of 2600K (tungsten) and 6500K (daylight) and can be easily cross-faded throughout that entire spectrum, including textbook even dimming from 0-100%. The CRI is 95+ utilizing the Litegear engine.

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.

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.
