Ellipsoidals

An ellipsoidal, also known as a leko, is the workhorse of the array of stage lighting. With this versatile instrument, you can get many different uses from one single fixture. Change the size of the circle of light by selecting the lens barrel. Then adjust the circle of light to a crisp sphere or a soft fuzzy edge. There are also four framing shutters to shape the light. Lekos have many spaces for accessories you can use to make additional effects. You can add color with gels, change the size of the circle of light with an iris, or use gobos to project shapes, words, and images. Ellipsoidals can use conventional lamps or come in LED versions. Flexibility is very important when choosing a lighting instrument. Don't limit yourself.
