No compromise on the quality of light has been made : the Alpha uses a 250 mm Fresnel lens, and 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 Keys. 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 1600W 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 ballast of the Alpha 1600W is PFC and draws 7,4 Amp @230 V. It is dimmable, and has selectable frequency options for extreme High Speed shooting (300 Hz and 1000 Hz).
