The K 5600 BUG-LIGHT design offers so many possibilities it is tempting to 'stick it' in almost any optical system one runs across. One obvious and popular device is the ETC Source-4. This elegant design of a pattern and Gobo projector has showed up in various applications and is widely accepted throughout the entertainment industry.
The BUG-A-BEAM Adapter is the part that makes the mating of a Source 4 and our Bug-Light 200, 400 or 800 not only possible but quick and easy. The HMI lamp offers many advantages in this particular application, its 6 mm arc gap is punctual enough and very well suited for such optical design. The 4 to 1 efficiency ratio of HMI versus Tungsten incandescent explains the two full stops gain. The 800w version is over 2.5 times brighter than the standard tungsten Source 4 and HMI in general for location work.
The JOKER-BUG equips the image-maker with a very versatile tool: a PAR fixture for directional lighting, a BUG for soft and lantern lights, and a BUG-A-BEAM Adapter for a controllable high intensity beam projector.
