I've got no idea if it's the good category for my question.

Does anyone has any experience with Briese Lighttechnik gear? Without doubt, it looks very innovational, but I'd like to hear something from first hand. Maybe you know with studios work with their flashes? I've found only this one presented at their main website.

I have a Briese Focus 220, it's the best umbrella on the market with it's own amazing light quality

Hi, Krystian
 
We have four Briese parabolic umbrellas.

The 180cm and 44 cm are a part of the travel  setup, we have one Mini-cube 400 and and an older Cube 800 for them.
The 140cm and 77 cm we use in studio with the heads, converted for Broncolor packs.

Three parabolic reflactors were bought secondhand in Germany and France. One reflector and some heads we bought
from Briese in Hamburg, Germany.

AFAIK Broese do not support Broncolor and Profoto generators anymore. There are some secondhand gear converted, mostly in Germany.
Briese offer the Hensel travel packs (Lithium) with the converted heads. I think that it is the only Non-Briese generators the company supports now.

The Briese  Hamburg studio has all the Briese gear and it is possible to rent the lights with almost all the modifiers from them. One can rent that studio space as well.
Dr.Briese is a charming person and his team is very professional.

I had Bron umbrellas before and  sold them.

The Briese reflectors are lighter , more rigid than Bron, the head is centered  , but they are more difficult to transport: they do not fold down twice, as my Bron 170 did.
We are thinking about buying the Briese HMI heads and ballast, our older reflectors can be converted  by Briese to be used with the HMI hotlights for video.
The HMI are quite expensive...

The parabolic reflectors are great, be sure someone shows you how to put them up. their generators are terrible, they look funky but whenever i rent them i truly hate them.
