Any relatively high streamflow overtopping the natural or artificial banks in any reach of a stream and rising above the flood stage.
1) A lensless lantern that produces a broad non-variable spread of light. Floods are used in battens, or singly to light cycloramas or large areas of the stage. 2) To increase the beam size of a focus spot by moving the lamp and reflector towards the lens. "Flood that a bit, please !"
Usually an incandescent light source that is designed to illuminate an area with light of relatively uniform intensity.
a floodlight, specifically a unit that produces a beam of intense light
The wide distribution of a reflectorized lamp, abbreviated FL. Also a fixture with a widespread light throw.
Lamp which gives a wide spread of light.
lantern consisting of simply a lamp (usually linear) and a reflector. Produces a broad wash of light, with little control over the beam shape. Used for lighting large areas at short throws, or illuminating the cyclorama. The reflector may be either asymmetric or symmetric.
light that is a source of artificial illumination having a broad beam; used in photography
Used to refer to the beam pattern of a reflector lamp, which disperses the light over a wide beam angle, typically 20 degrees or more. ("Flood" as opposed to "spot")
A floodlight: a lantern which gives a wide-spreading, unfocused beam of light. These can be symmetric (i.e. casting the light equally in all directions) or asymmetric (casting it more in one direction than the others). The symmetric flood is probably the cheapest stage lantern and the least useful
By focusing the lamp close to a lens, the diameter of the light beam is enlarged and thus gives the widest field of illumination.
The very wide light dispersal from a reflector bulb. FL can be used as an abbreviation.
