Default What type of light is this?

I've seen these types of lighting before, does anyone know what it's called or how the light(s) are positioned?

Because of the flatness of the lighting my guess would be a ring light or a beauty dish. With the ring light, you shoot through a hole in the middle of the ring which would explain the centered catchlights in the eyes.

Thanks. It does seem like a ringlight.
