    Default Huge Light

    I saw something last night at a commercial display that I thought was neat. It was a 2' diameter light mounted in a Lexan covered box. The light was a commercial/industrial outdoor rated light. It may have been a HID light. There was a gel filter in front to change the color of the light. It was extremely bright. I do mean bright too. One fixture would easily flood an entire facade of a house. The only problems that I see with this type of fixture is that it is likely 240 or 277 volts, and the turn on time is measured in seconds. But I thought that I might use one for the 10 minutes prior to my display starting. Maybe Walter and myself can rig one up. I see this type of fixture available at auctions quite often. Maybe I could turn the light on and use a shutter system to control the light output. The display where I saw this light had one of these shining up into a tall tree. The tree was unbelievably bright.

    Also this display had a basketball player wireframe set that sequenced between when the player was on the ground then flew up to the basket to make a layup. It had 4 wireframes that flashed on and off in sequence. Kind of like the snowball fight wireframes. I really didn't pay it much attention until I noticed that the player's head was not lit and it looked like he was laying up his head instead of the ball. Kind of like The Headless Horseman of the basketball world.

    I worked in a sign shop a 1000 watt light will work great in a box to felect the light forward. The ballast can be 120 volts or 208, 220, 277 or 480.

    I have two huge maple trees in our front yard that i wanted to light up. I wonder if this would be easier than stringing minis?

    Vic I was really impressed when I saw these lights. I'm going to try to find a way to make them work.
