Charles Green (beige shirt) discussing the merits of Selecon theatre lighting products with Chas Norton, lighting designer for the Antiques Roadshow television series“I can not believe that is only 575 watts”, Charles Green, studio manager and lighting director at Boston Catholic Television commenting on the light output of the Rama 6" Fresnel using the new Osram 575W BTH lamp at the recent NAB Tradshow in Las Vegas.

Science however, proves that Charles can indeed believe it as footcandle light output readings taken at spot focus are only 21.5% less than those recorded with the 1000W lamp and, at flood focus 36% less.

These impressive results are delivered with 42.5% less energy consumption and see the addition of this 15,000 lumens lamp with 300hrs of average life to the 750W BTN and 1000W BTR P28 lamp socket lamp choices for the Rama 6" standard and FFT model Fresnels.

Updated Rama 6" Fresnel specification sheets are available via the Selecon product support section. 

Selecon has also sourced a new Fresnel 6" lens for this product which also contributes to the improved beam quality of these Rama Fresnels and further cements Selecon's reputation for continued product improvement and development in building the best lighting tools for the theatre and entertainment lighting industry.
