Cinemills Lights Up New Pilot Series

The Cinemills 12/18k HMI Fresnel the, "workhorse," of the industry, was lighting the way for a new pilot series. Filming in Silverlake, at one of the local cafes, a couple of the light fixtures stand at the side walk ready to light the interior scenes.

The fixture has an excellent reputation for quality and dependability, and is available with a 12/18k respective electronic ballast. The electronic igniter is designed to provide extremely quiet operation using either ballast. Other features include Cinemills revolutionary shock mount lamp socket system that is designed to maximize lamp life, a unique T-Handle designed to allow easy movement of the bale, and an optional locking diffusion.
