Advantages Of Moving Heads

To better brand our business, we color imagination have been researching & developing more pro lighting fixtures. We know well that, with rising customer requests and industry development, the latest generation of moving heads should integrate digital projection capabilities, creating a real convergence between lighting and video projection. Thus all color imagination latest launches are capable of providing full complement of professional characteristics.


Color imagination moving heads range from pro profile fixtures, spot lights, wash lights, video effects, par lights, etc. We have led prospot series profiles available at 800w/600w/500w/300w, led spot & beam series at 300w/200w/150w/90w/50w, led zoom wash series at 15w/25w/40w/60w/240w (single led bulb). We have bsw and beam series too at 470w/380w/350w/280w/230w. Also we have led special effect series for dynamic visual effects, as well as those necessary par lights.


Color imagination moving heads, either led prospot series, led spot & beam series, led zoomwash series, lamp bsw series, lamp beam series, or special effect series, can provide lighting designers with pro functioning effects when programming. The automated framing system can further shape the beam and control unwanted spill. The pattern wheels with gobos, either rotating or static, can project images for spinning effects. The animation wheel can project special dynamic flame or ripple effect. The color wheels with dichroic color filters are perfect to change the color of the beam. Variable, the incremental cyan, magenta and yellow color-mixing filters can vary beam color via subtractive color mixing. And the color temperature correction can be available either during color changing or via an individual ctb/cto. So we can imagine that a much wider range of colors can be created via the controlling system. The linear frost filter can create hybrid wash effects. The automated lens trains are used to zoom and focus the beam. And the iris is used to change the size of the beam. The independently controlled prisms can creative more dynamic visual effects. And, the mechanical/electric dimming can vary linearly the intensity of the light output, while the shutters create high-speed shutter/strobe effects.


Furthermore, color imagination moving heads can support dmx, rdm, artnet, wdmx, standard or optional. Whether being used for concert and touring, live tv productions, corporate shows, cruise line or houses of worship, stadium-sized stage and live productions, color imagination is an ideal choice.


Product knowledge

What is moving head light?

Moving head light is a high-tech product integrating electronics, machinery and optics. It is mainly composed of three major systems: optics, machinery, electricity and program control. The design of the optical system mainly considers the utilization of the light flux of the light source. It is characterized by compactness, high brightness, high color temperature, good color rendering, and the light source can maintain a relatively stable color temperature during the dimming process, but there are also relative The disadvantage is that the filler will have a shadow effect in the arc imaging. The mechanical system has a wide range, including materials, structure, mechanical properties, housing requirements, heat dissipation requirements, etc., which can make the lamp body avoid deformation, wear, and corrosion when it is continuously working. Moreover, the lamp housing must have strict requirements for waterproof, dustproof, anti-static, and moisture-proof. The electrical characteristics mean that the starting voltage of the rare gas discharge bubble is very high, requiring the use of transformers, starting devices, and semi-resonant circuits to increase the instant starting voltage.


What is the difference between moving head light and beam light?

On the basis of the improved light source, the beam lamp continues many channel functions of the early computer moving head lamp, and the beam lamp is also a spotlight lamp. The light emitted by the beam lamp is a bright beam, and the light emitted by the moving head lamp is mainly a pattern lamp. There are some differences between the two types of lamps in the application. The beam angle of the tube beam lamp is relatively small, the brightness of the light is greater than that of the moving head lamp, and if the distance is used, it is farther than the moving head lamp. If the distance is too close when used, we will feel that the eyes are very shaken, generally near No beam lights are used. According to the market, the current usage rate of beam lights is more than that of moving head lights, but moving head lights also have some advantages that cannot be ignored. In the range of use, the use of moving head lights within 5M does not feel bad, but if you use beam lights, Not so, so these have promoted the development of computer moving head.

Product Application

The beam lamp is a metal halide lamp, and the pattern lamp is a discharge bulb. The metal halide lamp used in the beam lamp has a small beam angle and a higher light efficiency utilization rate, so even if the power is not very high, a very bright beam can be obtained. Because the moving head light illuminates the cone light, the spreading area is much larger than that of the beam light.


Beam lights are used in explosive scenes in more occasions, such as close-ups during opening shows and singing and dancing, with strobe lights to create a passionate visual impact; moving head lights are more to show soft and intellectual art. Enjoy the aftertaste in the soft and slow dance, through the matching of different colors and patterns, forming a soft and gorgeous scene, creating a warm and romantic atmosphere.


If you are in a bar with a height of only three to five meters, it is a wise choice to choose a moving head light. The beam and patterns can appear to form a good atmosphere, which will not cause discomfort to the guests and cause them discomfort. . On the contrary, in a very high studio, the wide beam angle of the moving head light will make the beam of light very dark, which cannot achieve the desired lighting effect. Therefore, in this case, the beam light should be used for this occasion. , Unless there are other special requirements for the lighting effects of the venue.


Therefore, when selecting beam lights and moving head lights, it should be determined according to the actual distance and the desired effect. And the moving head beam light just combines the two, so that the application places are expanded more widely, suitable for TV studios and photography, large-scale concerts, bars, road shows, theaters, outdoor lighting, etc.
