What is the GODOX MG1200Bi
In addition to the maximum output power of 1400W, high color rendering, IP54 dust and splash proof performance, multiple highly accurate control systems, advanced heat dissipation system, and the new G mount, it is a high-light bi-directional camera that realizes a shooting environment that is safe and energy-saving. Color LED light (color temperature: 2800-6500K). The G mount has a larger interface compared to conventional mounts and has improved load capacity. It also has high heat dissipation and insulation properties, preventing ignition of accessories such as cloth. It is also designed with electronic contacts to detect on/off of the optical system, making the shooting process safe and energy-saving. In the future, a color temperature correction function (currently under development) will be added, further expanding creative possibilities.
Highpower and Efficient
With high power LED, the MG1200Bi has the same brightness as a 2.5k HMI Fresnel or 1.8k PAR light. The brightness is 86100 lux at 3m and 5600K (when using a Fresnel lens). In addition, important tests were repeated to ensure accurate colors. It also features high color rendering properties such as CRI≥96, TLCI≥96, R15≥92, and TM-30 RF≥92. With multiple control systems, it offers convenience for any shooting location.
In addition to the included controller, DMX, Lumen Radio, Ethernet control using sACN and ArtNet protocols, control using applications such as Luminair, MadMapper, and Blackout, control using a 2.4GHz remote controller (RC-A6II/RC-R9II sold separately), Bluetooth (dedicated) The removable remote controller (RC-11, sold separately) allows for more efficient and flexible control, whether it’s intuitive shooting or systematic adjustments on a large scale. Scientific dimming curves can be selected from four types: linear, S-curve, exponential, and logarithmic. It has IP54 dust and splash resistance and is resistant to extremely low temperatures, allowing it to perform at its best in any shooting location, even in rain or fog.
Accessories for the MG1200Bi
A lineup of accessories with dedicated electronic contacts developed for the MG1200Bi (G mount).
The lineup includes three types of 2.4GHz remote controllers: the standard RC-A6II, the more versatile RC-R9II, and the removable RC11.
Lineup includes parabolic, octa, lantern, and square shapes. The parabolic type is 90cm, 120cm, and 150cm, the octa is 120cm and 150cm, the lantern is 90cm and 120cm, and the square type is available in 90 x 90 cm, 90 x 120 cm, and 120 x 120 cm.
Increases the maximum illuminance of MG1200Bi to 86100 lux (3m/5600K). Dedicated barn door and carrying case available (sold separately).
The lineup includes 15°, 30°, 45°, and 60° types. Barn doors for reflectors are available for 30° and 45° (also for 60°). There are also kits available with 2 pieces at 30° and 60°, and 3 pieces at 15°, 30°, and 60°.
It expands the variety of shooting options, such as by projecting various shadows. Depending on your application, you can choose a kit that comes with a 19°, 26°, or 36° lens. It also comes with a gobo set for projecting patterns and a gobo holder for attaching gobos.
There are four types of gobo sets that can project various patterns, and a lineup of holders for setting the gobos. *Contents differ from the gobo set included in the attachment kit.
It acts as an aperture to freely control the circular spot diameter of the projection attachment. Adjustable in the range of 4-60mm.
Soft case/hard case
Soft cases and hard cases used in various MG1200Bi kits. The soft case is easy to handle for everyday use, and the hard case is made of PP alloy, making it safe for air transport.
