The PB70 is the largest and most powerful of the parallel beam lights, mainly directed at the use in Lightstream Drama applications. Beam projectors have been known in our industry, but this one is different, as much as it offers a very defined beam, and at the same time a homogenous light distribution all across the beam.
The beam has an exit diameter of 70cm, 27.5 inches. This parallel beam light fixture can be used for the appearance of a natural light source, being far away by virtue of its character, and its over-ruling of the square law. For this reason, this light fixture has already been chosen for some major film projects to simulate sunlight because of its natural and unique character.
When operating this light fixture with reflectors, there is a choice of the largest reflector that we currently provide, using a 100 x 100 cm reflector surface (usually the # 1 type) to redirect the light in an opportune direction, without much change to the beam diameter and the beam character, and without causing much noticeable stray light. Especially, when such a large reflector, redirecting the entirety of the beam, is used, the result is a virtual light source at considerable distance. Thus, talent/actors are able to move in the reflected light, without diminishing light intensity when changing position.
The DPB70 light is powered by the dedolight DEB1200D flicker-free ballast, which also allows dimming of the light source up to 40% and operates quietly and can be controlled by DMX signals.
The DPB70 is rainproof and therefore suitable for lighting setups in exterior and continuous use, even under adverse conditions.
