Functional Overview

The ACME Lighting GEIST BEAM is an LED moving head fixture that creates a bright, super-concentrated narrow beam of 3°. This fixture uses a newly designed 500-Watt white LED engine and high-efficiency optics – including its 230 mm front lens – to produce collimated beams and aerial effects and provides a punchy output of 360,000 lux at 5 meters.

The GEIST BEAM offers CMY color mixing with CTO (2700K to 7000K), one color wheel with eight colors and a diffusion filter, a static gobo wheel with 10 gobos that includes three beam reducers, a rotating gobo wheel with seven gobos, eight-facet and six-facet prisms, and frost filter.

The GEIST BEAM fixture was designed to tackle long throw needs and eye-catching aerial effects, perfect for a wide variety of productions.
