It’s been a tease that went for what two years? Well the Photon Beard Platinum Blonde light is nearing the end of the prototype phase and the good folks plan to have units ready for shipping around NAB 2014.
A 1200W HMI linear lamp in an open face format is supplied complete with an electronic ballast. The open face format is ideal for any requirements where raw output is required such as for use as a bounce light or for punching through some diffusion to create a very soft, powerful daylight source.
Because it is only 1200W it can be powered from any domestic supply and is also excellent for mobile situations such as a generator supply whilst filming a moving car.
We are pleased to say that testing is going very well and we feel Platinum Blonde will be a very popular fixture at an attractive price when it is officially released.
Please see Photon Beard for more about their upcoming Platinum Blonde light.
