Recommend modern equivalent to Colortran Minibroad?
Dec 22, 2012


I have a friend who made an artwork in the 1970s that used a 650W colortran minibroad to illuminate a space in a specific way. This isn't to take a photograph, but an artwork that used a photographic light.  Since minibroads are now outmoded, I need a recommendation for a modern equivalent.

The desirable aspect is the wide spread, even illumination at this wattage/brightness. The spread is very wide, at about 3-4m from the light, having a spread of about 6-7m wide.  Basically a floodlight.

Redheads are too narrow beam and other video production lights are way too powerful.

Additionally, the work needs to sit on a timer, on and off about every minute. This won't help bulb life.  And maybe a dimmer too.

Grateful for any suggestions!

Thanks, Dino99
