A while ago I posted a story about Radiohead’s current rig, and how it was chock full of i-Pix BB4 and BB7 fixtures – I just read that their BB4 fixture won an award for Technical Innovation at the 2008 SIEL show in Paris.
From the article at LEDs Mag:
The BB4 was entered into the ‘Stage & Studio’ category by i-Pix French distributor, Paris-based JC Lampes.
The Awards were judged by a panel of 12 industry experts, including Julien Pavillard, artistic director for Lyon’s famous festival of Light. They closely examined each nominated product, before conferring and making their final decisions.
The BB4 was selected as the winner for its intensity, color mixing capabilities and its homogenized light source – all three qualities greatly impressed the judges and make it an ideal fixture for both stage and studio applications of all types.
The homogenization means that the LED point sources are not visible, and the unit offers a completely smooth, super high quality, flat field of light similar to a tungsten source.
Check out the products specs for the BB4 at the i-Pix BB4 page. This is one hell of a fixture.
