variety of Conventional Luminaries are used
in Auditoriums and TV Studios to meet the
requirement of a vast variety of performances
and provide a spectrum of lighting options
to Lighting Designers.
Spot Lights provide a narrow and controlled
beam of localized light on the stage. All
spotlight fixtures have one or more lenses
and are generally available in variable
beam spreads of approximately 5 to 70 degrees.
Designers use spotlight fixtures for AREA
and WASH lighting applications, at distances
of 15-150 ft. Designers will often provide
a series of 'tight', circular pools of light,
to each acting area, approximately, 8' to
20' wide (depending on the application).
A single acting area will usually require
of 1 to 6 fixtures positioned as; front,
back, side or down lights.
Flood Light fixtures provide a WIDE distribution
of light over a broad area and are primarily
used to light backdrops and scenery at close
distances of from 3 to 25 feet. Almost all
floodlight fixtures without lens. Floodlight
fixtures generally have fixed beam spreads
of 70-150 degrees.
Cyclorama Light fixtures provide a WIDE
distribution of light over the Cyclorama
Screen and are primarily used to colour
wash backdrops at close distances of from
5 to 25 feet. Almost all Cyc fixtures are
without lens and have a Gel Filter Assembly
along with a asymmetrical reflector with
respect to the lens. Cyc fixtures generally
have fixed beam spreads of 70-150 degrees.
