The 5.5" fixture draws just 38 watts and outputs more than 2,400 lumens at 96 TLCI.

BB&S Lighting of Denmark has added the Compact Bicolor Fresnel to its family of Compact Beamlight LED studio fixtures.

Measuring 5.5" and weighing 3.5 pounds, the new CFL draws just 38 watts and outputs more than 2,400 lumens at 96 TLCI (tunable from 2700-5600K). It features a 90mm curved glass Fresnel lens that ensures even field distribution in addition to excellent shadow rendering.

The fixture outputs a hard-shadow beam that fades from 100 percent at center to 50 percent at the edges, making it a great choice for mixing and overlapping with other lights while eliminating blinding glare. It can be useful as key, fill or backlight from 8' to 18'.

The CFL’s zooming capability is operated via BBS’ smart ring-controlled focus system with a range of 11-52 degrees. The fixture offers silent operation thanks to a heat-dissipation rear section that eliminates the usual cooling-fan system. 

The light can be operated via the BB&S 4-Way Controller, which can provide DMX 512/RDM to two fixtures simultaneously. The range of power options includes 40-watt Driver/Dimmer with D-Tap cable (battery operation), 65-watt PSU (any voltage worldwide between 110-270), and locking AC cable.

The new Fresnel is fully compatible with BB&S’ other studio fixtures, including Compact Beamlights and Pipelines and the Area 48 range, as well as the BB&S Tracklight system, which offers adapters for DMX or BTE Mesh control. 

Optional light-control accessories include Rotating Magnetic Barndoors, Magnetic Top Hat and a Magnetic filter ring. The unit comes with an adjustable, yoke-mounted TVMP and 2-meter cable mounted with a 4-pin XLR male connector.

The BB&S Compact Bicolor Fresnel lists for $650.
