Classic disco lighting effects including scanners, moonflowers and barrel effects. Using high power halogen lamps, brands such as Martin Professional lighting product lights that have vivid colours and strong lighting beams.
These work by either, heating a filament using electricity or sending an electrical discharge through a gas or plasma, which will also create light. These processes can be seen in everyday life, such as a traditional household light bulb (filament). While the long fluorescent tubes you see in an office are the obvious cases of gas being discharged. While LED lighting has made giant strides in recent years, it is worth always keeping the traditional methods in mind and the settings to use it to get the best experience.
While not having the same capacity of control, moonflower effects will still allow you flexibility, in that you can have adjustable parameters, such as gobo type, beam colour, rotation and lamp, and they can all still be automatically controlled by using a built in microphone, therefore as well as remaining in one position or rotating, you can also set it to be triggered by a specific frequency. They are also easy to install and operate, so are especially ideal if you are going to control your own lighting.
Traditionally, most modern lighting fixtures either worked by electrically heating a filament or sending an electrical discharge through a gas or plasma to create artificial light. Filament-type lights range from the ordinary household light bulb to powerful halogen lamps. The most common gas discharge lighting is the ordinary fluorescent tube. While both types are still very commonly found in all kinds of lighting applications, LED technology has made big inroads in recent years.
MoonfFlower Effects: These are standalone fixtures that usually allow you to adjust parameters such as beam color, gobo type, rotation, and lamp, all of which can then be controlled automatically by a built-in microphone. The effect can be set to rotate, remain static, or be triggered by specific audio frequencies. The lack of DMX control makes flower effects less suitable for larger venues, but their simple installation and operation make them very attractive for smaller locations as well as bands and DJs who control their own lighting.
