A Followspot is used when a bright or hard-edge beam needs to shine on a moving performer. Most models can change color, focus and shape of the beam easily. Different units are required for different distances from the light to the target, the intensity of the light required, and the venue in which they will be used. They are also very useful for event lighting. Followspots require no control board or dimming system, they plug directly into a standard power outlet, and are very easy to use.
