First, the difference between the light column


Beam light * The important thing is the light column, a bright light column is the pursuit of beam light; moving head light, in fact, should be said to be the pattern light of the discharge bulb, which focuses on the spot and pattern. The purpose of the two lamps is different, so the application has changed significantly.


Second, the light source is different, the application is different


The beam lamp is a metal halide lamp and the pattern lamp is a discharge bulb. The metal halide bulb used in the beam lamp has a very high beam efficiency and a high luminous efficiency, so that even if the power is not very high, a very bright beam can be obtained. The moving head light is larger than the beam light because it is irradiated with cone light.


The beam light is applied to explosive scenes, such as the close-up show and the close-up of the dance, and the strobo is used to make a passionate visual impact. The moving head light is more about the art of expressing softness and slow dance. Indulge in the aftertaste, through the combination of different colors and patterns, create a beautiful and beautiful scene, creating a warm and romantic atmosphere.



Third, there is a huge difference in the actual usable distance


The beam light is recommended to use a distance of 12 meters, while the moving head light can be used up to 5 meters. If you are in a bar that is only three to five meters high, it is a wise choice to use a moving head light. Light beams and patterns can appear, creating a good atmosphere that won't make you uncomfortable. On the other hand, if you are in a very high studio, you should use a beam of light. In summary, the choice of beam and moving head light depends on the distance and effect actually used.
