The type of light is called a "moving head."

There are HUNDREDS of different brands and models of moving heads, and you are asking us to identify one particular fixture from a list of hundreds, from a 5 second low resolution video which doesn't even clearly show it...

Why does it matter? Why does it need to be "this" particular moving head?

And I told you. A "moving head." You are being very broad with your question. Like I said, there are hundreds of moving heads out in the market. It's YOUR responsibility to do some research on which one would suit your needs or requirements.

If you want decent help, you need to be more specific.
It like showing us a picture of a blurred car, and asking "What vehicle is this?" and "What type of vehicle with four wheel can transport me, or similar..."

Do a google search. American DJ, Blizzard, Chauvet, Clay Paky, Coemar, Martin, Vari Lite (too pricey for you), DTS, High End Systems, Robe. These are the top manufacturers of moving head fixtures. There are too many makes, models to list. Every one of those brand names will have documentation and some have video of their products. Or you can always You Tube the fixture too.

What can you afford to spend? Moving heads start at a couple hundred bucks and range to over thirty thousand... EACH!

With a budget, we can make real suggestions.

Hi there
I'm not to bothered about a moving head. It could just simply spin.
The American DJ LED Gogo Projector looks OK.
I dont want to pay all that much and the ADJ looks very cheap.

I've yet have to come across a moving head fixture that doesn't have the capabilities of custom gobos. You need to find out the size gobo the particular fixture takes. The manual will give you gobo dimensions. Some fixtures take smaller gobos while others take larger ones. When you order a custom gobo, you have to give them the type of fixture. Make, model, etc.

Keep in mind though, the smaller the gobo, the price goes up, and in some cases if there's a lot of wording, it may not all fit on a smaller gobo. If that's the case, then you may want to look into getting a standard gobo for a Source 4 Leko or similar Ellipsoidal fixture. There's also gobo projectors.

^^^ Oh. It's gobos. That's what I thought it was.

I looks like it would be easy to make words project from any light. I mean It's almost like getting an opec (light cannot pass through) material, and cutting out the letters, then shine light through the "cut outs" Am I right?

Here's a few links which should help you. The differences between metal and glass gobos.

Here's a company where most people order.

There's also a great amount of production companies in the Southern California area which can make custom gobos.

Yes, hundreds of moving heads CAN display company names like that. As Brandt Slater already mentioned, you can order gobos which can display whatever you could possibly want on it.

Well synaxis, why didn't you say that. As Brandt Slater already mentioned, you can order gobos which can display whatever you could possibly want on it. Why didn't you say that instead of being sarcastic?? "Obviously it takes brandit slater to professionally tell me and the OP about the situation. you don't need to be sarcastic on your posts It is unprofessional to be sarcastic. At least I am educated enough to post professionally. You know without sarcasm. And then you try to combat me with your neg.

And I told you. A "moving head." You are being very broad with your question. Like I said, there are hundreds of moving heads out in the market. It's YOUR responsibility to do some research on which one would suit your needs or requirements.

http://lmgtfy.com/?q=moving+head On your post, you don't mention gobos. And you expect OP to research hundreds of moving heads. At least I am helping OP point out to something he wants. You were of no help, instead, you used sarcasm. You don't need to put a sarcasm link like that.

fueledbymusic, I could write an entire page in response to you right now, but instead I'm going to be the "professional" one here and drop this before it goes any further. It's really not worth my time and sanity.

And then you tell me to get educated before helping with something I don't know about???
Well, synaxis, I was the first one to mention gobos. Something you couldn't do:shrug:
