Hi! i'm trying to find a post that talked about this round light source that looks like a satellite dish without the diffusion in the front. It comes in different diameters. Just need the name of it. Seen it used i a music video once as a cisible light source behind the talent.

Sorry guys, but i tried my best to scour this forum for the post.

Thanks!

Your probably talking about a Briese-light. I use them all the time.

You can read about my first encounter and review of them here:

You might be referring to a "Beam Projector", they used to be very popular in Broadway professional theatre here in the US. They look a little like a small aircraft searchlight. In theatre they've been pretty much replaced by intelligent lighting like Cyberlights, MAC's, etc.
