The Luxli Viola² 5″ On-Camera RGB LED Light Panel continues and improves on the tradition of the original Viola. The Viola² features a dimmable output that can be adjusted from either 3000 to 10,000K or 0 to 360° RGB. This is accomplished with 88 individual 5-color LED emitters which provide improved performance over individually dyed (single-die) LEDs. The unit incorporates two clickable, endlessly rotating knobs. Turning one knob controls the flicker-free dimming adjustment from 100 to 0% brightness, while turning the other knob controls the color output of the unit. In addition, the knobs can be clicked to select a function on the fixture. For example, clicking on a knob enables quick switching between 3200 and 5600K when the fixture is in CCT or Filter mode. A new feature allows you to toggle Bluetooth on/off by holding down the menu button.
Useful and functional by itself, the Viola² shines brightest when used in conjunction with the free mobile device app, the Conductor, which allows you to individually control or link together multiple units. With the app, you can adjust the output of the light to match output, CCT, color, saturation, filters, and effects. The app also allows you to sample the color and brightness from a video image, such as a campfire, on your mobile device and have that sample control the brightness and color output of the light. The fixture powers from 7 to 15 VDC via a 2.1mm power port or by the included battery. Mounting is via the built-in 1/4″-20 threaded mounting hole.
Each Viola² fixture comes with a Photometric datasheet that shows that unit’s tested output. This sheet is generated at the factory from testing each light fixture after calibration. The information includes the calibration date, model, and the serial number of the fixture being tested as well as graphic depictions of the fixture’s performance in CRI/TLCI versus Kelvin output, deviation from Kelvin across the range, lux across the supported Kelvin range, deviation from Planckian locus (±green shift), color gamut, and beam angle measurement.
