Soft or hard.

Enjoy creative freedom with Vortex8 and its counterpart, the Vortex8 Soft – your new 650W dynamic duo in LED lighting. These 2×1 RRGBBW systems are not just about powerful outputs; they’re about optimised efficiency, ensuring you have the right tool for the job no matter the scope. Both have a broad CCT range from 2200K to 15000K, wrapped up in a user-friendly package with a seamless user experience powered by CreamOS.

The Vortex8 is your go-to for that punchy, hard light that can switch to a smooth operator with the right accessories – think of it as your lighting chameleon. It’s unfazed in the face of unpredictable weather and messy effects machines with its IP65 rating, ready to roll come rain or shine.

Swap to the Vortex8 Soft and get beautiful full-spectrum soft light with high output right out of the box, with the same sturdy build and smart design. It’s the light that moves with you, from tight studio spaces to the great outdoors, never missing a beat with its battery-friendly 48V DC input.

Creamsource Colour Management System.

The Creamsource Colour Management System (CCMS) unifies Vortex and Micro fixtures with a unique LED mix, meticulous factory calibration, and sophisticated software algorithms done in native CIE xy colour space. This advanced system ensures consistent, high-quality light output across devices, maintains color accuracy at all dimming levels, and compensates for temperature changes.

The RRGBBW (red+deep red, green, blue+royal blue, white) LED configuration enriches red saturation, enhances warm whites, allows for deeper and brighter blues, and improves the quality of cool whites – outperforming traditional RGBW setups.

Advanced special effects, for frame rates up to 5,000fps.
