The 4Bank System was designed as a softlight source that could be plugged into the wall on location. With its narrow profile and size, the 4Bank could approximate the quality of light from bounced sources without losing set space. The first thing to note about the 4Bank System is that it consists of four components: 4Bank Fixture, Mounting Plate, Ballast and Extension Cable. It was designed in this manner to allow the greatest flexibility when working on film production where the gaffer and DP are constantly being challenged to light unique locations and problem solve at a moment's notice. From lighting close-ups in a restaurant location to lighting large blue and green screens, the 4ft 4Bank is the most versatile product in the Kino Flo product range and was the first product developed by Kino Flo more than 25 years ago. Kino Flo?s award winning 4ft 4Bank portable lighting system is reintroduced with a new design. With new universal voltage from 100VAC to 240VAC, the 4Bank can be used anywhere in the world. The 4Bank is brighter than a 1,000W soft light, yet draws only 1.3A (240VAC), 50% less than the previous model. New features include new graphics, new colour coded connectors and new power switches. The lighter weight 4Bank ballast has the same classic features: individual light control, HO/Standard switching and the same high quality standards: flicker-free, instant-on, dead quiet operation. Colour temperature doesn?t shift when light levels change. With its new and classic features, the popular 4Bank remains to be a favourite tool among lighting professionals in the studio or on location.
