Cyclorama Lights

Another simple instrument, called the cyclorama light (or less formally, a cyc light), is mainly used for providing color washes on a flown cyclorama. Cyc lights are available with anywhere from one to four individual elements, consisting of quartz lamps and reflectors. Large color frames can be slid into the face of each of the individual sections of the instrument. Cyc lights provide a uniform wash, which makes them especially suited to cyc and backdrop lighting. An example of a cyc light is shown in figure 5.3.
