Qc80 Overview


Cineo has designed the ultimate creative lighting tool — the Quantum c80. Combining our award-winning white light quality with innovative saturated color technology, the Qc80 delivers up to 50,000 lumens of beautiful, easily controllable, full-gamut light.

The Qc80 boasts a substantial 2’ x 4’ diffused illuminating surface, weighing less than 50 lbs., with a maximum power of 800 watts.

Creating beautiful light within an extended color gamut is only part of the story. Cineo has developed an intuitive control strategy that allows predictable, repeatable results, either using the graphical control panel or remotely with wired or built-in wireless CRMX control.

The strategy is simple: four controls or four DMX channels control the entire fixture in a single mode of operation:

Master – Cineo’s Photo-Accurate DimmingTM maps
the 0-100% dimming curve to actual camera stops for precise output control using the MASTER control locally or on the second DMX channel.

White – For color-accurate white light, choose the CCT as you would with any Cineo fixture, using the WHITE rotary control or the rst DMX channel.

Color – To optionally add saturated color, the COLOR control adjusts the hue, the color of which is displayed on the control panel, or managed on the third DMX channel.

Blend controls the amount of saturated color to be added to the white light, from full white to fully saturated color.

With the Qc80, the same color shading can be achieved regardless of the CCT used for photography. For example, +2 Green added to 3200K CCT will look the same as +2 Green at 5600K to the correctly white- balanced camera.

In addition to our proprietary phosphor-converted white light LEDs, we developed phosphor-converted saturated color LEDs. These work with the phosphor recipes in the white LEDs to create a balanced, natural-looking spectrum featuring Cineo’s deep-red color rendering technology. The saturated color LEDs use the exact same dies as the white LEDs, so all light emitting elements of the c80 carry identical thermal stability, and perform over time with identical differential aging. So after years of service, color stability remains consistent.
