The unique LED source that talks Candles


wireless hurricane lamp with flame leds and casambi control

The colors of traditional very warm LEDS gives skin-tones with a limited hue, giving the appearance of one flat and dull tone. They often have a green or magenta cast and none of the color definition you would need to render good skin-tone. I have never seen a LED that performs this well in 1800-2000K as the the new Flame LED from Softlights. It matches candle and paraffin light perfectly. The new Flame LED is a LED revolution”.John Christian Rosenlund, D.O.P.

FLAME helps cinematographers to match real candle light with a fully controllable LED source. 
FLAME can be integrated in practicals to fake a real candle when there is need for power and dimming.
FLAME can be used as fill or Key light in fixtures as a China Ball or other traditional lighting tools.
FLAME can be wireless dimmed using our flickerfree and stand alone Casambi driven four circuit dimmer.
FLAME can run on a standard 12 volts DMX decoder – for increased control.

The Issue

It is easy enough to create a LED light, but hard to make a light that simulates real fire. Most modern LED film light produces a rather good light within the 3200-6000 Kelvin range. But when you try and create lower Kelvin light, like simulating Candle light, they often go green or magenta and they have a lack of color spectrum, missing color depth and saturation. If you only use those LED light, it is possible to fix some of it in post. But in most cases, LED sources will be blended among real candle and Paraffin light

Beyond RGBW

This is why we developed a new kind of light source assembling other colors than usual RGBW and rather using 2200K, Amber, Lime and Deep Red Leds in a special blend which can recreate or match  a whole range of fire lights:
Candles,oil lamps, petrol lamps like shown below, wood fires in a chimney or outside

The Result:
a stand alone hurricane lamp with wireless control, dimmer,and batteries embedded
fire light

The light source
4 units of 4×1 cm PCB  flameleds  assembled around a square tube which is a heat-sink as well
