Functional Overview

The ACME Lighting GEIST BSWF is a multi-functional LED fixture powered by a 450-Watt white LED engine. This fixture can be a beam, spot, or wash, delivers over 20,000 lumens, and weighs only 24.6 kilograms (or 54.2 pounds) making it one of the smallest but brightest fixtures in its class.


Although small, the GEIST BSWF is packed with the features you would expect from a fixture in this class. It has CYM color mixing, variable CTO from 2700K to 7000K, a color wheel with five colors and a high CRI filter, a rotating gobo wheel with seven rotating gobos, a static gobo wheel with eight gobos including two beam reducers, a four-blade framing system that can rotate in 45 o in either direction and do full blackouts, a frost filter, and a four-facet prism. The fixture's High-efficiency optics and 120 mm front lens produce sharp images and rich colors.


The GEIST BSWF is designed to be what you need it to be when you need it for a wide variety of productions.
