BB&S Lighting introduces the Compact Beamlight (CBL 1) —a new type of studio, stage and architectural lighting. With a 5.5” footprint, these versatile LED powerhouses draw just 40W yet produce up to 4000-lumen output at 97 CRI. While other fixtures produce a wider, less defined beam, the CBL 1 outputs a hard-shadow rendering beam that fades from 100% at centre to 50% at the edges, so it’s good for mixing and overlapping with other lights—while eliminating blinding glare.
