First 800W Fresnel unit on the market ever produced, the Alpha 800W Plus will definitely make a breakthrough on sets. With its Fresnel lens of 175mm (most commonly used by competition on 1200 W Fresnel), the Alpha 800W benefits from the same features of all the Alpha line, with a little “Plus”.
An Alpha like the others…
Like its elder brothers, the Alpha 800W has a great quality of light and shadows. Operating pointing straight down (90°) is another quality of the Alpha line. This unique feature is possible thanks to the cooling design of the unit and the small size flat reflector. And like all the Alpha fixtures, the Fresnel lens can be removed to turn the unit into a very even wide clean beam with razor sharp shadows.
…with a “Plus”
So, what makes of the Alpha 800 an Alpha “Plus”? The “Plus” comes from the ability of the unit to be equipped with a PAR or a Zoom reflector. K5600 R&D has developped a G22 90° socket, which enables the bulb to change from vertical to horizontal position. The operation is quickly done by replacing the bulb by the 90° angle socket and sliding in the PAR or Zoom beamer. The Alpha Plus is provided with a new braking system and a yoke offering four different positions: vertical, horizontal and at 45° front and back. The Alpha 800W Plus can be equipped with either 3200K or 5600K discharge bulbs for even more versatility.
Hi-speed and dimmable ballast
It comes with a dimmable ballast, which can run at 300 or 1000 Hz frequency for High Speed shootings without generating flicker.
