- The DPB70
The DPB70 is a special light which produces a parallel, 2° beam with a 70cm (2.3') diameter. The light excels in extreme efficiency and unprecedented homogeneity within the beam past 10'. Those qualities are basic a prerequisites for all dedolights, and is mandatory for success with the Lightstream lighting system. This light has hot-restrike capability with it's DEB1200D flicker-free DMX-ready electronic ballast. Dimming range is long for an HMI from 100-60%.
This light redefines what you are used to seeing when you turn on a 1200w HMI. At 15' this light meters at around 110,000lux, and unlike a 7k Xenon can be operated in any position without heating issues. It's IP63 rated so it can be operated indoor/outdoor in mildly rainy conditions. But the magic is delivered in the straitness of this beam. With this light you're creating a "virtual" light source which exists well BEHIND the actual light. The effect of the light on its subject appears as if it's coming from much further away. For example, using a large Lightstream #1 reflector, users can shorten the distance it would take to get a beam of sunlight though a window, something which traditionally takes a Condor and large HMI sources from a substantial distance to accomplish. Keep in mind this light can run off house power in most scenarios! While the light looks big and impressive, it's uncanny bi-product is SAVINGS; save time, money, energy, permits, all while delivering one of the cleanest, sun-like beams on the market.
