The ParaBeam 400 fixtures display about the same amount of soft light as a 2,000 Watt tungsten light, respectively. But ParaBeams only use 1/4th as much power! 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.
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.
