Lighting Conventional

Conventional Lighting Fixtures are the backbone of theatrical lighting systems, providing overall wash lighting, spot lighting and special effects for live shows and broadcast studios. Choose from our wide selection of Ellipsoidals, Follow Spots, Fresnels, Moving Heads and Par Cans.
 



Elllipsoidal Lighting fixtures project a strong beam of light with sharp edges. Ellipsoidals are primarily used to spotlight stage areas. Available in various beam widths, these fixtures can be fitted with pattern gobos and color gels to create mood lighting and special effects. Manufacturers include Leviton, Lightronics, Chauvet and more.
Fresnel lighting fixtures utilize a special glass lens that is made up of concentric grooves. Widely used in television, film and theater, the Fresnesl fixture can be adjusted to cast an intently focused beam or a wider flood beam. The Fresnel lens was invented in 1822 by French physicist Augustin Jean Fresnel for use in lighthouses.
A Par Can is the most basic type of stage lighting fixture. It consists of a metal cylinder, a hanging bracket, a frame holder, and a lamp. A concave mirror-like parabolic surface reflects the light, hence the name "Par". Most Par Cans are designed to use sealed-beam type lamps that resemble older-style automobile headlamps. Par Cans are used for fill, color washes, and pattern effects.
