Anyone has used CD or CST fresnel for cinematography? Desisti and Arri both make CDM lights (150W and 250W respectively). It is designed for architecture applications but I wonder why it is not widely used in film/video?

IN CD, they have built-in high frequency ballast, available in 3200K, 4200K, 10,000 hours life, cold restrike, CR>90.

In CST, 250W = 1000W tungsten output, a Desisti tech rep told me that they can take MSR daylight lamp giving 5600 deg!!!! It costs substantially less than a HMI kit. It sounds very attractive for me.
