Moving-Head Washer

Moving-Heads bring moving light to your event. While in the past they could only be found on the big stages of rock shows, the moving heads have now become an indispensable part of TV productions, concert stages, discotheques and theatres.


The devices consist of the base with integrated control panel, an arm and the head, which contains the optical system. The head of the spotlight is fixed to the arm and performs vertical movements (TILT), while the arm can be rotated around its own axis (PAN). These stepless PAN and TILT movements allow the light to be directed in any direction. Especially in light shows, moving heads are important design elements.
Moving-head washers are ideal for creating a colorful mood. This effect is supported by the soft edges of the light cone, which form a smooth transition to the shadow. The spotlights are mainly used to illuminate large areas (on stages, on facades or, for example, in entrance areas).

Moving Head Washer

Since the ABACAB tour of Genesis in 1981, moving heads have become an integral part of the event scene. That was when the head-moving spotlights were first used at a show – and they have come to stay: In the past 40 years a lot has changed when it comes to moving heads. In addition to technological advances, there are also different types nowadays, each with its own functions and features. Thus, in addition to the classic moving head, you will also find moving head washers in our range, which are especially suitable for use on stages or in discotheques due to their special features.

Structure of moving heads

In terms of technical construction, moving head washers are very similar to their "older" brother, the classic moving head. While the electronics, power supply and, if necessary, a DMX connection are hidden in the base of the spotlight, the arm and head of the moving head are responsible for the characteristic PAN and TILT movements. This makes it possible to direct the light of the moving head in any direction.

Special features of washlights

The light that the moving head wash casts onto the stage at a concert or in a theater can best be described as a fuzzy, rather flat beam with softly fading edges. Depending on the model, some units allow the beam angle, i.e. how far the light spreads out as seen from the spotlight, to be changed using a zoom. In combination with so-called hazers – fog machines that create artificial haze – the devices conjure up soft light on the stage or dance floor of your event. The light of the moving head washlights becomes clearly visible through the fine haze and, thus, creates an impressive atmosphere.

Moving Head Washlights with LEDs as illuminants

In our assortment you will find primarily LED moving head washlights. The color of their light can be infinitely adjusted thanks to RGB or RGBW color mixing. For example, in our online store you can find LED moving head washers with 400-watt COB LEDs, motorized zoom, electronic dimmer and RGBW color mixing. In addition, the built-in mains and DMX inputs and outputs make it possible to chain several devices at a show and loop through the power as well as the signal.

Light shows are particularly eye-catching when the PAN/TILT movement of the individual washlights is precisely coordinated to create a flowing movement. Moving lights in the truest sense of the word!

If you have any questions about the moving head wash, the motorized zoom or the corresponding accessories, please do not hesitate to contact our staff. We will be happy to advise you comprehensively on all questions concerning lighting technology!
