Light commonly used in theatrical settings or for bands and soforth. Short for parabolic reflector in a can - it's basically a car headlight, very high wattage (typically 500-750) and quite bright. They're also known for being quite cheap and throwing a nice, even light but not being nearly as flexible as an ellipsoidal or fresnel.
If you drop a light from the catwalk, you're in deep shit - unless it was just a parcan.
