Kino Flo’s award-winning FreeStyle 31
creative side with a quick-release feature to remove the LED panel from
the fixture, cutting the weight nearly in half (from 14.5 lbs/6.6kg to
8.5 lbs/4kg) and creating a smaller form factor for better rigging
flexibility. The LED panel’s corner bumpers can be used to hang from
rope or wire. The panel also takes a Twist-On mount for working on light
stands. The Freestyle 31 comes complete with the full color,
programmable FreeStyle controller, Head Cable (25ft), Complete Fixture
with removable LED panel, and a twist-on KinoGrip Center Mount.
Honeycomb 90° or 60° louvers, mounted with Velcro, give direction to the
light, and when removed the panel displays a broad soft beam across the
The FreeStyle 31 is known for its >96 white light,
full hue and saturation color, cinema gel choices, and RGB chromatic
selection via the AC/DC FreeStyle 150Watt controller. It has built-in
Lumen Radio® wireless DMX; no extra cost for wireless receiver
accessories. The light can also be operated directly up to 50 feet away
from the controller via Kino Flo head cables.
The Freestyle's driver technology achieves bright, soft
light with continuous dimming from 100% to 0% on a linear or
square curve without flicker at higher camera speeds or
at varied shutter angles. There is no light level change when shifting
from 2500K to 9900K, and the color doesn't change when the light levels rise or fall.
Color and luminosity remain stable over the rated life
of the LED's using Kino Flo's advanced True Match® daylight and
tungsten color management system, which has been an
unqualified success since Kino Flo introduced the idea of soft panel
True Match Celeb Studio LED’s six years ago. Passive
cooling keeps the LED’s in good shape for a longer usable life than
fixtures that require electric fans.
The White menu features Dimming, tunable Kelvin range from 2700K tungsten to 6500K daylight and Green/Magenta
The Green/Magenta control can be scaled from 0- to 100, where 25 = ¼ correction, 50 = ½ correction and
100 = full correction.
In the Gels/Hue menu, the Kelvin range is extended to 2500K Kelvin to 9900K daylight and a fourth channel is called
The Gel channel includes Kino Flo presets such as blue & green screen, sodium vapor, mercury vapor as well as over 100
well-known lighting gels. The gel function can be applied to any Kelvin temperature and by pushing the control knob
the gel will be applied or removed. A fifth channel called Hue Angle (Hue) and sixth channel Saturation (Sat)
are also included in the gel menu.
These two channels behave similar to a traditional color wheel, where
white light is in the center and Hue Angle determines the color along a
360-degree range and Saturation
determines how much color is applied. With the Hue Angle and Saturation
it is possible to create over 2 million color combinations!
The RGB color menu gives individual control of red,
green and blue LED’s. The RGB mode is a great way to work with apps
predetermined RGB presets or color wheels. RGB menu is also a great
feature to dial in specific gel RGB values or when controlling
colors from a DMX desk.
The FX (Effects) menu introduced on June 1, 2018
provides access to popular effects such as Candle, Fire, TV, Police,
Lightning, Paparazzi, Pulse
and Scroll. When on the desired effect, there are several pre-sets as
well as control parameters that can be altered. For example,
in the Lightning effect there is a “Storm” and “Frankenstein” preset,
but it is possible to change Rate to provide additional variation.

The firmware listed above is loaded onto the FreeStyle LED controller and can operate the Freestyle 21 fixture remotely with a
25ft extension cable or can drive the
panel directly when mounted to the back of the fixture. The Freestyle
