The Compact Bicolor Fresnel (CFL) from BB&S is the latest in the company’s range of Compact Beamlight LED studio fixtures.

It is claimed to be the smallest footprint Fresnel on the market (at 14cm), draws just 38W and outputs over 2400 lumens with a Television Lighting Consistency Index rating of 96 (tuneable from 2700 to 5600K).


Small Brother: The new 38W BB&S Compact Bicolor Fresnel

The new CFL features a curved glass 90mm Fresnel lens that ensures even field distribution. It outputs a hard-shadow beam that fades from 100% at the centre to 50% at the edges, making it useful for mixing and overlapping with other lights while eliminating blinding glare. The 1.6kg fixture has enough output to make it usable as a key, fill or backlight from 3m to 6m.

The CFL’s zooming capability is operated via BB&S’ smart ring-controlled focus system with a range of 11-52º. The fixture also offers silent operation thanks to an efficient heat dissipation rear section that doesn’t need a cooling fan.

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

The Fresnel is fully compatible with BB&S’ other studio fixtures including Compact Beamlights and Pipelines (same 4-Way Controller), and the Area 48 range, as well as the BB&S Tracklight system. Accessories include optional Rotating Magnetic Barndoors, Magnetic Top Hat and a Magnetic filter ring.
