Ok so I was looking at an equipment checkout list and I realized that I had no idea what some of the lights were. If there is anyone who can help and tell me some info about these lights that would be great.

Desisti 2k
30" Lanterns
Speed Rings
Joker Bug

Desisti 2K does not mean much since Desisti makes a full range of Tungsten lights (2Kw can not be a HMI). It could be a Fresnel, a soft light, or a blonde. Ask the author of the list for some input. Same for Speedrings (these are adapters to fit Chimera light banks onto a specific light): you need to know for which light they are. There should be some light banks as well, unless the rings are to fit Joker Bug on the 30" Lanterns (in which case, they are from Jem Lighting). The 30" Lanterns are probably the Springballs from Jem lighting.
Now for websites :
