Raises Colour Accuracy Bar

Precision colour is a hallmark of BB&S Lighting. To ensure the finest colour rendition, BB&S utilises RGB and both white LEDs (3200K and 5600K) that are selectively binned to produce outstanding rendition.

Soft Output Wide Dispersion

Like the Area 48 Studio and Soft, Area 48 Colour fixtures can provide output comparable to a 1800W soft light. Maximum output is available in 5600°K and 3200°K. They deliver soft light, with wide 105º dispersion at 97.5 TLCI.

Intuitive Touchscreen Operation

An on-board touchscreen offers local control or users can perform ON/OFF and colour/white tweaking via DMX/RDM. DMX 512 also provides for daisy-chaining multiple fixtures. Settings for plus/minus green, plus/minus magenta facilitate accuracy. They also offer full range dimming (8/16 Bit from 001% to 100%) and run flicker-free at any framerate, to fully accommodate high speed shooting. It also accurately generates speed adjustable strobe effects within the fixtures software.
