I'm trying to understand more about lighting fixtures with multiple lamps arrayed between 9 to 24 total lamps. I've seen these called brute lights, dino lights, I've heard theater guys call them blinders.
How do they fit in? If you need a big light, I would think to use a few big Arrimax lights. Are they more economical? Are the lamps exclusively incandescent with these fixtures? Do any of you still use them frequently? If so, then what for?
How do fixtures with lamps in an Array compare to fixtures with a single lamp? Is the purpose to replicate a larger source of light?
And lastly, what is the most commonly accepted term for these fixtures?
(Sorry for posing so many questions at once)
