The Alpha concept is to create a more compact and lighter fixture with interchangeable Fresnel lenses, giving the end user more options than just flood and spot. Optically, this new K5600 Alpha 1600 Kit offers great versatility from Open-Eye for extra wide beam with a single hard shadow to precisely controlled Fresnel (only one Fresnel lens).
Thanks to the quartz composite reflector and the G22 lamp base of the 1600W bulb, the Alpha 1600 is a compact and amazingly lightweight Fresnel unit. No compromise on the quality of light has been made: the Alpha 1600 uses a 250 mm Fresnel lens (commonly used on 2500W), the G22 socket allows for a wider angle as the bulb reaches closer to the Fresnel. Without lens, the Alpha produces a very even beam of 85° which makes it ideal to cover large areas and Chroma Key. The unique texture of the quartz reflector gives a very natural light effect with a very high reflection index of 97%.
Like all K5600 fixtures, the Alpha 1600 can be used pointing straight down for unlimited period of time without damaging the unit or creating safety issues. In real life, the light usually comes from above and the ability to recreate this situation is a very unique and appreciable asset. The Alpha 1600 is suitable for 16 mm and 28 mm stands.
