BB&S Intros Compact Bicolor Fresnel Light
CFL with barndoor.
BB&S Lighting of Denmark adds the Compact Bicolor Fresnel to its range of Compact Beamlight LED studio fixtures.
Claimed as the smallest footprint (5.5-in/14cm) Fresnel on the market, the fixture draws just 38W and outputs over 2400 lumens at 96 TLCI (tunable from 2700 to 5600°K). New CFL features a “genuine” curved glass 90mm Fresnel lens that ensures even field distribution in addition to “excellent” shadow rendering.
CFL outputs a hard-shadow beam that fades from 100% at center to 50% at the edges for mixing and overlapping with other lights while eliminating blinding glare. The 3.5-lb/1.6kg, fit-anywhere fixture has enough output to make it useful as key, fill or backlight from 8 to 18 feet/3 to 6 meters.
Its zooming capability is operated via BBS’ ring-controlled focus system with a range of 11-52 degrees. In addition to a generous focus range, the fixture offers silent operation thanks to an efficient heat dissipation rear section that eliminates the usual cooling fan system.
The light may be operated via the BB&S 4-Way Controller that can provide DMX 512/RDM to two fixtures simultaneously.
The new Fresnel is compatible with BB&S’ other studio fixtures including Compact Beamlights and Pipelines (same 4-Way Controller), and the Area 48 range, as well as the BB&S Tracklight system which offers adapters for DMX or BTE Mesh control.
