PAR-410P-230 ParaBeam 410 DMX Pole-Op, 230VAC
(Includes Pole-Op Fixture, Gel Frame, Silver Louver, Jr. Pin)
The ParaBeam 410 and 210 studio fixtures display about the same amount of soft light as a 2,000 Watt and 1,000 Watt tungsten light, respectively. But ParaBeams only use 1/4th as much power! Both studio lights take Kino Flo True Match® high color rendering lamps (CR I95).
The soft beam actually can be focused for a wide variety of set lighting looks, from lighting four people across a news desk to spotting down to a single subject. Some of the ParaBeam's details are:
• Onboard/remote DMX dimming
• Lamp/Select switching (410 fixture only)
• Parabolic intensifying reflector
• Gel Frame
• Focusing Louver
• True Match® daylight, tungsten
Available in Center Mount, Yoke Mount and Pole-Op
The ParaBeam has distinct advantages over conventional quartz softlights.
The ParaBeam is a directional softlight ideally suited for today’s rigorous demands for high quality, color-correct, cool lighting for HD television. With the introduction of HD broadcasts, it has become highly evident that the quality of light is more critical than ever.
Every imperfection and detail of camera talent is now up for scrutiny. Traditional hard light can exaggerate those textural details.
Soft light can subdue those same textures and render a more cosmetic appearance.
The ParaBeams afford lighting designers the necessary light control required for a studio environment. The lamps are dimmable from 100% to 5% as well as switchable (turning on/off two lamps at a time) from a lighting board through DMX. The instrument can be tilted and panned as well as rotated to take full advantage of the lateral beam. Varying degrees of louvers (90°, 60°, 45°) reduce the need for barndoors and help create a soft edge.
The sleek profile is well suited for a studio environment. The parabolic reflector design eliminates the necessity of adding intensifiers.
In small studios a narrow design also allows other fixtures to operate within close proximity. The fixture is not encumbered with long barndoors or intensifiers. The selection of the appropriate louver 90°, 60° or 45° is more efficient than barndoors.
