A light, more versatile than a swiss army knife.
The world’s first RGBACL panel light, the most powerful light that fits into your pocket, and anywhere on set, without compromising light quality. Your lighting companion that never leaves your side.
The first RGBACL Cinema panel light in the world
Superb precision and ultimate light quality/output.
Yes it’s portable. But the way we made it so small, yet with light quality of a big cinema light – that’s what makes it truly special. With specs beyond imagination, and color accuracy in a league of its own. Because it’s the world’s first RGBACL panel light.
Power or Battery Life?
35% More Light Output: Experience extraordinary brightness that transforms any space or moment.
Up to 35% Extended Battery Life: Optimized energy consumption ensures reliability without compromise.
Your pocket sized super power with an ultra-wide beam angle.
Bring your light anywhere. Mount it on anything. Light the darkest, hardest to reach places on set with ease. Without compromising light quality, intuitive use and seamless integration of your lighting setup.
Get ready to explore a world of boundless creativity with the Play. Its expansive 106° beam angle opens doors to a multitude of lighting scenarios, giving you unmatched flexibility for your cinematic vision. From captivating studio setups to adventurous outdoor shoots on the go, the Play adapts effortlessly, becoming your go-to companion for a wide range of multi-use cases – all with the power of a single device.
The Kelvin Play doesn’t use any white LEDs. Instead, we are mixing Red Green Blue Amber Cyan Lime LEDs to produce white light and any color you can imagine.
“The advantage RGBACL has over RGBWW is that it is capable of giving you a larger CCT range and it can produce more saturated colors with more output. RGBWW lights tend to struggle to create saturated colors like yellow and they don’t always have as much output when generating saturated colors. They can also have a large drop-off in output at different CCT settings.”

Designed and built without compromise. (IP65)
A massive light in a small package encased in solid aluminum.
Of course, our aluminium housing exceeds structural requirements, conducts heat better away from the light, and it is stronger than creaky plastic. One material as case, structure and finish removes complexity, yet adds strength and robustness without compromise.
Everything you could ever need, no distractions. Made to be handled hard. Harder, than a traditional tungsten work horse.
Almost unbreakable, yet highly recyclable.
Super light, in every way.

An award-winning lighting solution
The Play comes from a line of award-winning lights. The Play’s big brother, the Epos 300 won the reddot award 2023, the DOGA award for the design and the iF Gold Award 2023.
Powerful words from the Jury of the DOGA award:
“Good lighting is a key factor in all film production.
There was a lot of joy and enthusiasm in the jury when we studied the Norwegian-made cinema light from Kelvin.
The Kelvin Epos 300 is awarded the DOGA mark for design and architecture because it is a great, well-designed product that exudes precision and ease of use. We are pleased with the quality of the materials and that the lamp has been given an honest, rational expression with a clear identity.
We also applaud the process behind it, where technology development has gone hand in hand with product and brand design.
The light makes it easier to work creatively for all types of film productions – but it also acts as a design role model in its own right.”
A word from our engineers:
The construction of the optical elements ensure the exact wavelength mix for perfect light consistency.
Precise power control regulates the amount of light to an accuracy of 0,1%. Every light is built with a meticulous attention to detail to ensure it outperforms your expectations on set.
What this means:
We have the science covered so you have the best tool to be creative.
