As still light, HMI light used to be the favored choice for video shooters. Nevertheless, some photographers love the quality of light of these HMI heads, and choose to light their scene with this technology.

Briese HMI heads can be found at several powers, but rental station often offer 2,5 and 4 kW versions. Combined with a ballast and a focus reflector, the light that can be obtained is one of the best you can find on the market.

Briese HMI heads are made of the head core, a HMI lamp, and a specific dome mounted on metal rim, with a metal protective grid at its top.

Of course, domes in glass don’t endure violent shocks. Many of these glass dome break because the head falls, or during transport. Due to the heat emitted by HMI lamps, protective dome can also break because of internal tensions inside the glass.

When a dome breaks, Phoxene can replace it by a Phoxene glass. You just need to send us the metal parts, and we will glue a brand new one. The glue is heat resistant, and our domes have a special treatment able to withstand the heat generated by HMI lamps, even at 4000W!
