BB&S Pipeline 2’ 2-Bank Light
BB&S introduces the Pipeline 2’ 2-Bank remote phosphor LED light. This small footprint fixture is powerful and controllable, so it’s a good fit for broadcast studios, remote production, and cine work alike.
Despite its small form-factor, the Pipeline 2’ 2-Bank provides high light output, low power draw, and extremely accurate color 98 TLCI accuracy. Available in 3200°K, 4300°K and 5600°K versions, each infinitely smooth-dimmable with no color shift or flicker.
Compactly designed, the 2’ 2-Bank fixture weighs 3 pounds and measures 24”L x 4” high x 1.5” deep. In the field it travels lightly as a single unit and fits in a small case. In studio it can be mounted flush against a wall or ceiling, or hung with a variety of optional hardware accessories. It is a real problem-solver in small studio spaces.
Unlike standard LED fixtures BB&S instead employs remote phosphor technology, which separates the LEDs from the color generating phosphor coating, enabling more vivid color generation, 98 TLCI, and avoids color degradation over the long term. Within each Bank are two, 1-inch cylindrical Pipes each with a solid aluminum back channel that makes them extremely rugged.
The 2’ 2-Bank draws just 40W at the 100% end of its dimming range, outputting a maximum of 4000 lumens. This allows up to a dozen 2-Banks to be plugged into the same 15W wall outlet. For field production, commonly available professional 14.4V camera battery packs can also be utilized, with the optional driver dimmer pack, eliminating the need for AC outlets.
Part of the Pipeline Raw family, the 2’ 2-Bank are driver/dimmer agnostic, ready to be set up as the user prefers. A short cable with a 3-pin XLR connector on the fixture allows a single controller or BB&S’ 48V 4-way Controller with DMX, to control up to four of the 2-Banks. This 48V solution provides smooth dimming all the way to zero (even in the last 5%). Users can supply their own LED driver/dimmers with optional DMX packages. Optional 8’, 16’ and 24’ extension cables can be used with no power loss.
The BB&S Pipeline 2’ 2-Bank comes with a removable honeycomb front and has the option of adding barn doors and a custom-padded, Cordura-covered case.
