Lighting quality has become more important than ever with the introduction of high definition broadcasts, meaning that the color of the light must be correct and consistent throughout the filming. While using this light you have the ability to focus the soft beam which is known to be kinder and more flattering to the subject, and versatility is important for any lighting rig being used.
The Kinoflo ParaBeam DMX lamps can be dimmed to any level between 100% tp 5%, and some of the bulbs can also be turned off. This is all controlled from a single board for ease of use.
The lamps are designed specifically for use in the studio, with a narrow design that is small enough to fit into small spaces, and also with a parabolic reflector shape that means intensifiers are not required. Use of honeycomb louvers with different angles (90, 60 and 45 degrees are available) also eliminates the need for barndoors. A louver is included with the Parabeam DMX light.
Less Power-Less Heat
Producing as much light as a 2000 watt tungsten lamp, the ParaBeam DMX has the advantage of only using one tenth of the power, which means that the bulbs will last for a much longer period of time, and do not produce as much heat. This is particularly important when working in the studio, as it helps to maintain the color of the light. Also, with lower heat, your talent will remain happy and perform for longer periods of time without a towel break. It is suitable for use with either blue or green screen filming, and can also be fitted with color gels (gel frame is included) for greater versatility. Because this light produces less heat, gels won’t burn out or fade. The light uses Kino Flo True Match high color rendering lamps.
The lamp is fitted with a center mount, which means it can be rotated easily on either axis according to your requirements, as well as Yoke Mount and Pole Operation. Its small size also means it can be mounted in a variety of different places in the studio, which would be a problem with larger fixtures.
