New Joker Range - Joker²


At IBC 2017, K5600 unveils the Joker². For 25 years, Jokers have been the industry standard for powerful, controllable light sources, with thousands in use every day on film, television and still sets around the world. Joker² are more than refreshed, they’re redesigned––from the Ballast to the Beamer. In 400, 800 & 1600 watt sizes, they incorporate all we’ve learned in the 25 years we’ve been around.

  • New modern design. With its sleek lines, rounded edges, and simplified parts list, the Joker² emits more lumens than any competing light source of same wattage, and looks good while doing so.
  • Our heads (or Bugs) incorporate a threaded ring that mounts a clear or frosted borosilicate lamp cover (or Beaker), allowing quick and easy access, without tools, for quick relamping because we now offer 3200K lamps in addition to 5600K.
  • The Joker² 800 incorporates a plug-in igniter that converts from HMI to 2K tungsten in less than a minute.
  • New yoke design features a much stronger braking system that when set remains in position to support ever larger light shapers such as light banks, ellipsoid spots and Softubes. Also added, a convenient hook that allows lenses to be kept close to the source.
  • Three way axis stand mount allows a much wider range of light placement, even with the largest soft boxes.
  • New Generation Ballasts incorporate a one-stop dimmer wireless DMX (Lumen Radio®) for on/off and dimming control from all Apple OS devices. CE approved.

A new case has also been designed to fit either the 400 or 800. They are on wheels and stackable so you can roll away many kits in one trip.

The new Joker² accepts all existing accessories except the Bug A Beam 400 and 800 for which a new ring is requested.

Joker² 400/800 and 1600 are now available.
