Use These Fixtures to Make Lighting So Much Easier

BB&S Lighting Pipeline LED
Find yourself in a literal lighting jam? BB&S Lighting has versatile Pipeline LEDs that fit almost anywhere. 

When lighting space isn't a luxury and you find yourself in a tight spot, BB&S Lighting offers a solution with its Pipeline series of LEDs. Adding to its existing 1-foot, 2-foot, 3-foot and 4-foot lengths, two new versions of the "fit-anywhere" fixture are now available in 4-inch and 8-inch varieties and will be shown for the first time at NAB

Just 1-inch in diameter, each LED is available in 3200°K, 4300°K or 5600°K color temperatures. Its cylindrical shape emits a high 98 TLCI remote phosphor LED light, spread over 180 degrees. The wide light dispersion produces a high output of 333 lumens for the 4-inch Pipe and 666 lumens for the 8-inch, both touting heatless and fan-less operation. Another positive is its low power draw, 3W for the 4-inch and 7W for the 8-inch and each version is available in 10-20V to run on batteries or 48V, and completely dims down to zero. They also feature dedicated dimmer/drivers to control the output and feed power.

The versatility of the Pipeline provides endless mounting options and can be installed as a stand-alone or in a reflector bank. They can also be used in a bi-color arrangement, mixing different color temperatures to achieve mid-range color temperatures. Full kits include an international power supply, driver/dimmer and 10' of cable and 3/8" mounting adapter with spigot. Pipeline prices the 4-inch model at $325 and the 8-inch model at $335.

Wow these are expensive. Why not look into the voyagers or quasar tubes? I understand these are more portable but damn thats pricey.
