The Lantern and Standard Light Boom Kit from Chimera includes a Large Pancake Lantern, a Triolet Lamp Base, and a Standard Light Boom with counterweight bags.
The Lantern is a 48" square light source with a half dome profile that can be used overhead to light an entire room. The lantern also comes with a skirt that can be rolled down on any or all of the four sides for dramatic lighting effects. The Triolet is an ideal mate for the lantern. The mogul socket comes with an E26 Edison base adapter with a 1,000W rating attached to a quick release speed ring that takes minutes to mount to the lantern. Offering 360 degrees of unlimited light angle and directional control and a 6' reach, all of the boom's angle movements are controlled by a handle at the pivot point. It comes with two empty counterweight bags capable of holding up to 15 lb total of lead shot.

Use this size for casting omni-directional lighting for a large conference room, or small stage where setup space is limited.
