Conventional Lights

Conventional lights are usually static, non-moving fixtures designed to light one specific person, object, or area. They feature high output, low cost, and low maintenance, however they generally consume more power, output more heat, and require a dimmer rack.


Ellipsoidal lights (also known as Lekos), like the ETC Source Four, are focusable profile fixtures capable of creating a hard edge light beam, projecting patterns, and have internal shutters to control the output shape precisely. There are a variety of lens options available to suit different applications and throw distances.

PAR Cans

The work horse of the conventional inventory, PAR cans produce an intense soft edge beam of light, generally used to wash large areas with light. The beam can be varied with different lens options, to fit most applications. PAR cans come in assorted sizes, like 16, 36, 56, and the most common, the PAR 64, and are generally available in 500 and 1000 watts. A more modern variation is the ETC Source Four PAR, widely used in smaller more controlled applications.

PAR Bars

PAR Bars are simply PAR Cans pre mounted on a pipe and wired together into a single socapex connector, making hanging and cabling faster and simpler.


Offering more control than a PAR light, Fresnels produce a soft edge, zoomable light output, allowing you to fit the area desired without changing the lens.


Borderlights are compact striplights with multiple lamps wired in multiple circuits to wash a relatively large area. Some of the more common uses are uplighting along the edge of a stage, lighting large scenic elements, or focused towards the audience to produce an light effect.

Cyc Lights

Generally available as single fixtures, and groups of up to six, Cyc lights are designed to wash cycloramas (large white backdrops). The fixtures throw their light in a very tall and only moderately wide pattern, to best wash from floor the ceiling.

Audience Blinders

Commonly called Molefays, Audience Blinders are usually used as effects to blind the audience for crowd interaction.
