DV Expo 2013: Force V LED Light Engine

From BBS Lighting
We had a chance to look at a second product from BBS Lighting, the Force V LED Light Engine.  This light is for people who have ellipsoidals, (a type of stage lighting instrument, named for the ellipsoidal reflector used to collect and direct the light through a barrel that contains a lens or lens train. The optics of an ERS instrument are roughly similar to those of a 35 mm slide projector. There are many types of ERS that are designed for the myriad applications found in the entertainment industry,)  and want to convert them to LED.

BBS Lighting gives you a a complete retrofit kit for third party optics that sets new standards for white light LED with very low power consumption. Existing optics can be converted to LED in one minute, giving the user a powerful long LED life, ultra silent operation, and a completely smooth range of dimming. The Force V LEDs are available in two color temperatures comparable to tungsten 3200 Kelvin and daylight 5600 Kelvin.
