I am selling a Sales Demo Desisti 4k Par system with Power Factor Corrected Flicker Free Electronic Ballast. This is a rare opportunity. Once this sells, you will not find a complete 4k Par System with the latest Power Factor Corrected Ballast technology from a major manufacturer for under $7000.00 again. You can buy directly at any time for the ebay opening bid amount as long as the item on ebay does not have a bid. If you want added security, you can partake in the ebay auction. As you can see from the screen grab of the present ebay auction, I have 100% positive feed back on my auctions so you can bid with confidence. Use the link below the screen grab to connect to the auction site. If the auction has expired, be sure to search for the item on ebay because it will be relisted if it did not sell.
This 4k Par can serve as the backbone of a powerful HD lighting package when used in conjunction with our 7500W modified Honda EU6500is blimped generator. As long as there is a sun and moon in the sky there is the need for a large HMI like this Desisti on interior and exterior sets because smaller HMIs, Kino-Flos, & LED panels don’t come close to balancing direct sunlight in day light scenes or covering deep background in night scenes. For powerful daylight fill on exterior sets, to create the feel of hard sunlight on interior sets, or to light deep background on night exterior sets, a dual wattage HMI Par like this Desisti is invaluable because it will operate off our modified Honda EU6500is (pictured below) or off of regular wall outlets.
The Par configuration of this light not only give you more output, but is also extremely versatile. When you need a lot of light for fill on day exteriors you can lamp it with a 4k globe. To cut a hard window pattern, swap the standard spreader lenses for a Frosted Fresnel. When you don’t need the punch of a 4k Par, like on a night exterior, you can swap the 4kw globe for a 2.5kw globe giving you more power to run additional lights on a small portable generator. The 15 Amps you save by burning the smaller 2500W globe will power quite a few more lights when you consider that a Kino Flo Parabeam 400 uses only 2 Amps. For example, it is possible to power a lighting package that consists of PFC 1200, & 800 HMI Pars, a couple of Kino Flo ParaBeam 400s, a couple of ParaBeam 200s, and a Flat Head 80, in addition to this Desisti Par (with a 2.5kw globe) off of our modified Honda EU6500is Generator. Given the light sensitivity of the Digital SLR HD Cameras this can constitute a complete location lighting package for HD Digital Cinema productions. When you have a camera system like the Canon 1D, that offers a 35mm image sensor, interchangeable lens capability, and is capable of an ASA of 1000 without noticeable noise, you don't need much more light than we can run off our generator system.
For details about powering these 4k HMI Pars on wall outlets and portable generators read our company newsletter article: “The Use of Portable Generators in Motion Picture Production.”

"Great work!... this is the kind of thing I think very few technician's ever get to see, and as a result many people have absolutely no idea why things stop working."
"Following the prescriptions contained in this article enables the operation of bigger lights, or more smaller lights, on portable generators than has ever been possible before."
