Moving head lighting units have a lamp or LED lamp positioned within the 'head' of the lighting unit. The 'head' is then moves through various angles and degrees of rotation to project moonflowers, gobos or follow spots around a venue or space.
A moving head fixture may be referred to as intelligent lighting, and works by the entire fixture moving, which then enables the different effects to occur, although this will be a slower process than a scanner, it can lead to some amazing effects. Depending on each model, it will impact on the quality of the optics and the amount of gobos and colours provided, and the better the moving head may lead to it incorporating rotating gobos and numerous colour wheels. Thus allowing you to programme complex sequences.
The moving head can be sound activated, and you can also daisy chain them so you can use several of them at the same time. To control these, you need to use a dmx controller
Moving-Yoke/Moving-Head Effects: Sometimes referred to as intelligent lighting, these DMX-controlled effects function similarly to scanners (see above). However, instead of a beam of light reflecting off a moving mirror, the entire fixture moves. The moving yoke is generally slower than a scanner since it has more mass to move as opposed to a lightweight mirror. Like scanners, the colour, gobo, shutter, focus, and movement are controlled via DMX. When shopping for a moving-yoke fixture, pay close attention to the quality of the optics and the number of colours and gobos provided. More advanced moving-yoke effects often incorporate rotating gobos and prisms, and a number of colour wheels. These features allow complex effects and sequences to be programmed. They can be be operated in sound-activated and can be daisy-chained so multiple units can be operated in unison. They are available as spot, wash, and beam fixtures, or combinations of all three.
