The new dedolight NEO bi-color light set includes a DLED7N-BI 80w bi-color LED focusing light head, a DTneo+ control ballast (wireless version of the DTneo), DBD8 barn door, DPLS light shield ring, a 4 ft head cable and a v-mount to AC Adapter.
The dedolight NEO DLED7N-BI is the perfect balance of output strength and control. Like its predecessor, the DLED7-BI, this light draws a constant 80w of power from the DTneo ballast by alternating between two 80w diode sets (tungsten and daylight) in its array. This means no matter what color diodes are on at any given time the light is always delivering the output you’ve paid for: not 40w on one color and 40w on the other, but 80W each. You might have experienced open-faced LED lights that require a beam-shaping accessory to get a fixed angle of exit and change the beam size. Moving the light from the subject is often impractical, time-consuming and sometimes impossible in tight spaces. Dedolight LED focusing lights are just not that: straight out of the box the light has a manual focusing range of 60°- 6° (1:10 light ratio). Think about zooming your light just like the Operator zooms the camera lens. Because you can set the exact beam size you want in seconds, dedolights are in a class of their own. If you know the DLED7 series well, the new dedolight NEO DLED7N has the same beam quality and output from its predecessor. The optical performance and functionalities are the same. The new dedolight Neo bi-color housing is shorter front to back as the chassis connector is relocated to the bottom. The back casing redesign cuts down light leaks even further. The DLED7N bi-color Neo light head is an incredible 30% shorter than the already compact DLED7-Bi. The DLED7N-bi Neo head is compatible with all the M size accessories of the DLED7-Bi, the Classic dedolights DLH4, DLHM4-300 and the HMI DLH200. So why would you choose a DLED7N Neo Bi-color over a DLED7-Bi Turbo: because of the superb dimming and smooth color changing below 10% and added functions to its controller: the DTNeo ballast.
This is where the dedolight NEO series truly separates itself from its predecessor. Gone are the days when you needed to choose between an AC, AC+DMX or DC ballasts with the previous DLED series. The DTneo, and DTneo+ (wireless option) offer all the functions you wanted in a single ballast, and more. Starting with AC/DC operation, the DTneo is a DC ballast with a V-mount plate for battery operation. The optional AC adapter electronics is built inside a battery shell that looks like and snaps-on exactly like a V-mount battery. DMX is now a standard feature in all DTNeo ballasts. Use the simple push/turn knob and OLED displayed menu to select between a deep, smooth “linear” or “exponential” dimming curve, or seamlessly change color, without drifting- even below 10% output (0.1 to 100% dimming range). Take advantage of 1000-point 8-bit linear, or 16-bit advanced control (via DMX/RDM protocol). Select the high-speed setting to shoot up to 50,000fps flicker-free. In direct tradition with Dedolight long-lasting equipment, the DTNeo ballast hardware and software are future-proof. The software is user upgradable via USB. The DTneo ballasts have an auto-detect feature to recognize and drive all the upcoming DLEDNeo light heads between 20w-80w. That’s not a typo. If you wish to invest for the future, the upcoming DLED3Neo unit, the DLED7Neo Infra-red, Ultra-Violet and even future generations of DLED7Neo, will all be controlled by the DTneo ballast, up to the Neo DLED9. To put it simply, the DTNeo ballast opens the world to an entire new generation of light heads, and the DLED7N-BI leads the party.
With the “DTneo+” version of the ballast you are unlocking the ability to use wireless control via CRMX LumenRadio and Bluetooth.
