At the 2017 NAB show, BB&S Lighting introduced fit-anywhere, four and eight-inch long LED pipes to join the company’s Pipeline family of professional lighting.
BB&S said each light — one inch in diameter — is available in 3200, 4300 or 5600 degree Kelvin color temperatures and emits a high 98 TLCI remote phosphor illumination spread over 180 degrees.
Among Pipeline’s advantages are low power draw — three watts for the four-inch and seven watts for the eight-inch model.
The lights have a high output — 333 lumens for the four-inch and 666 lumens for the eight-inch model — and wide dispersion. Both lights are heatless and use no fans. They are available in two versions. One is 10-20 volts to run on batteries and 48 volts that dims down to zero.
The cylindrical fixtures can be mounted on ceilings, on a C-stand or in a doorway. Any small, hard to light space is a good candidate. The lights can be hidden in nooks and crannies in background pieces and dialled in to the right dimming level.
They feature dedicated dimmer/drivers to control the output and feed power and are power versatile via 12V automobile battery, 14.4V battery via d-tap or AC adapter.
Also at NAB, BB&S introduced the Pipeline two-foot 2-Bank remote phosphor LED light. This small footprint fixture is controllable and provides high light output, low power draw and extremely accurate color 98 TLCI accuracy. Available in 3200-degree, 4300-degree and 5600-degree Kelvin versions, each infinitely smooth-dimmable with no color shift or flicker.
