Parallel Beam Intensifier: this is a large lens which attaches to the front of a dedolight and redefines what the light can do. By putting the light into flood position the result is a very focussed, parallel source – this can then utilised as part of the Lightstream system. By focussing the light into a Lightstream reflector, this light can then directed wherever the cinematographer chooses. The result is a totally different quality of light, unique to Lightstream.
“I love demoing Parallel Beam Intensifiers because its almost as if I’ve shown them a little bit of magic… and it’s like I’ve reached into the light and grabbed a unicorn, pulled it out of the light and shown it to them. And it’s like ‘what did you just do – I’ve never seen anything like that’ and that’s because nothing like that has ever really existed.”
