Moving heads – devices in which the movement of the light beam occurs due to movement of the body. These devices can be called universal, as they include the possibility of colorchange, scanner, strobe light and can change the direction of illumination via the remote control. The main difference between the "moving head" and the scanner is that moving head – moves the whole head, while the scanner – the mirror inside the device. Thus, to the public "rotating head" looks much more spectacular. Controle the "rotating head" is carried out with the remote control of light through the DMX512 cable for different DMX channels.
The first moving heads to be created, back in the early 1980s, were spot moving heads, and they are arguably still the most prevalent today. These units feature a lens that creates a sharply defined circle of light (a spot) and are also fitted with one or more gobo wheels that can be used to place a choice of metal (or glass) shapes in front of the light beam so that is projects an interesting pattern of light. Additional features strobing, and dimming add to the versatility of these fixtures.
The second most common form of moving head is the wash moving heads. In place of the spot’s relatively-narrow, sharply-focused light output, Washes have a softer and, generally, wider beam. Advanced models feature a motorized ‘zoom’ function which allows the beam angle of the fixture to be altered remotely, allowing very different visual effects to be created using the same light. This moving head washes are primarily used to ‘wash’ areas of a venue or stage with light. In other words, they illuminate a specific venue feature, performer, or scenic element with a subtler beam of light, that fades out at the edges instead of ending abruptly as is the case with a spot.
Beam moving head units have a much tighter beam-angle than washes and, although their optics tend not to be as sharp as spots, their output is focused enough to allow the use of gobo patterns. Their extremely tight beam angles concentrate their light output into a very dense column that creates an impactful effect in a hazy atmosphere. The latest type of moving head is the hybrid. These complex fixtures combine the features of all three primary moving head classes into one single unit.
