The Kino Flo ParaBeam 410 DMX Center Mount Kit (120V) is built around the 410 DMX: a directional softlight ideally suited for the demands of HD television for high quality color-correct lighting with minimal generated heat. Since the digital medium exposes any imperfection in camera talent, the quality of light is more critical than ever. Traditional hard light can exaggerate textural details, but soft light can subdue the textures and produce a more flattering image. The ParaBeam's soft output can be focused via louvers (grids) for a variety of set lighting needs, from illuminating a panel of four people across a news desk to isolating a single subject.
The ParaBeam 410 studio fixture produces about the same amount of light as a 2,000W tungsten light, but it only uses 1/10 as much power while offering lighting designers 100 - 5% dimming remotely or locally via DMX, as well as switchable (turning on/off two lamps at a time) output control.
The light can be tilted and panned as well as rotated to take full advantage of the lateral beam. To maintain its low profile, the ParaBeam offers louvers as alternatives to barndoors or intensifiers. While it ships with a silver 90 degree louver, narrow field 60 or 45 degree louvers are available for greater control, allowing a number of fixtures to operate within close proximity. This classic Center Mount version allows the fixture to be oriented at any desired beam angle. This kit includes the 410 DMX fixture, a filter frame, 90 degree louver (grid), lamp case and wheeled, hard shipping case.
