Among all kinds of professional stage performances and lighting and audio rental activities, LED par light is the most commonly used type of light fixtures. The color of the led is different, which determines the effect of the par light, red, green, blue, and three primary (Basic) colors. It is mostly used for coloration effects to set off the stage atmosphere. The 2nd is warm white color temperature of 3200K, which is used for stage front lighting. It requires a high color rendering index CRI90+ or higher, and it is required to show the true colors of the background characters on the stage. Starting from the beginning of 2019, according to market demand, dual-color temperature front lights have been joined in, on the one hand to supplement the brightness of the stage, on the other hand, the dual-color temperature adjustment achieves a simple CTO simulation effect. When the brightness of the stage is required, the lighting can be immediately supplemented. The following will describe in detail the difference between the use of a bottom light and LED Wash Par Light.


As a warm light source, the standard requires a color temperature of 3200K, but some customers choose 2800K according to the scene. (In recent years, some people have also chosen dual-color temperature white light, adding 5600K color temperature lamp beads). Usually illuminate the entire stage area from the top or both sides, and do basic lighting and frontal lighting for the stage. The front light needs to cover the entire stage evenly, its light is soft, and it mainly plays the role of lighting, providing a good shooting effect for photography. Professional front lights usually have very high requirements for color rendering index. General photography studios require CRI95 and stage CRI90. Traditional front light usually has a higher power. The front light used in stage performances and rentals is generally 800W-1000W. It uses a traditional light bulb to emit light and adjusts its brightness through a thyristor box, which requires high power supply for the venue; Since 2012, with the development of LED chip heat dissipation and packaging technology, LEDs have gradually replaced traditional light sources. 150W COB LEDs can replace 800W traditional light sources, and at the same time break the disadvantages of higher color rendering index and lower brightness, which is the most representative The type is Japan Citizen lamp beads. There are also many excellent domestic manufacturers. If you need to know more about it, please consult the online customer service of Five Chromatography.

The LED Wash Par Light is mainly used to change the color and play the effect of rendering the stage. The main colors are exactly the three primary colors of RGB, which we often say, through the mixing of these three colors, up to 16.7 million different colors. So how can we distinguish the quality of the color LED lighting source? That is to say, the wavelength should be better. However, when we buy led light fixtures, it is impossible to carry a huge integrating sphere or light meter to test at any time and any occastions. How to easily know the quality of lamp beads? This is another question we need to look into.

Through the following simple picture, we can clearly see that when the colors interact, they will be mixed into a new color. If you can get the correct magenta, cyan, yellow, and white colors, then the quality of the light source of this led is very good.

In short, whether it is a traditional Par64 downlight or LED high color rendering LED Lighting Sources, the front light is mainly used for lighting, while the wash par light is used to change the color of the scene and play the effect of wash and environment contrast. It cannot be mixed, and the ideal stage lighting effect can be obtained through a reasonable combination.
