broncolor announces the launch of the next generation of professional lighting equipment. The new Satos power pack series offers flexibility in terms of power and operation. Combined with the latest lamp – Pulso L – it provides the highest level of comfort and convenience to professionals in the image industry.
The completely new system features an innovative dual-power concept: Satos comes with power slots that can be equipped with power supplies, high-performance batteries or a combination, depending on the application. This not only allows the same system to be used in the studio and on-location but also significantly improves performance, especially in regions with low mains voltages (e.g., 110 V) or fragile power grids.
Satos offers limitless comfort for any working method. Settings can be made on an industrial-grade 5.7″ multi-touch screen; via a rotary/push encoder; by classic buttons or an app interface; or even through a Python API. Every parameter can be adjusted to the smallest detail with the help of an intuitive user interface. The patented broncolor technology allows the fastest flash times together with the highest consistency in colour temperature over the entire control range of up to 12 f-stops.
Satos offers up to full 3200 joules of flash energy. This enormous power can be distributed between one to three channels completely independent of each other, and the colour temperature, delay or a sequence function can be set individually for each channel. Previously, to trigger alternating flashes, multiple power packs were necessary. However, with Satos, the alternating function can be accomplished using the three channels of a single power pack, eliminating the need for multiple power packs.
The Pulso L lamp is the perfect sparring partner for Satos and enables the highest level of operating convenience through bidirectional communication between the lamp and power pack. All regular settings can be made on the lamp and are synchronized with the system in real time. The UE experts involved in the project placed the greatest emphasis on increasing the everyday usability of a certain function or feature, such as operating the lamp in flash, continuous or mixed mode as well as communication link between all active components in the system.
The Pulso L modelling and continuous light comes from a calibrated array of bi-coloured LEDs with a variable green/magenta mix and an adjustable colour temperature from 2800 K to 6800 K in continuous light mode. For the finest adjustment within the light shaper, the position of the flash tube can be modified by a rotary wheel. The Pulso series is synonymous with investment protection, as all products in the series are known to last a long time with features such as a metal housing and durable, industrial-grade cables, ensuring durability.
Satos and Pulso L are game changers for professionals in the image industry who value quality, performance, flexibility and ease of use. The systems will be available at all official broncolor partners starting in July 2023.
