The K5600 Alpha 1600 is the newest Fresnel instrument that has all of the same advantages of other Alpha fixtures. At 1600W, the Alpha 1600s output is comparable to that of 6000W of traditional quartz fixture output. Like the Alpha 4K and 18K, the Alpha 1600 uses a composite quartz reflector, which can withstand extreme heat and be placed directly beside the lamp. This enables the Alpha 1600 to be burned straight down without worry about damaging any part of the fixture.
The K5600 Alpha 1600 includes a permanently installed piece of borosilicate, which gives a hard light effect with crisp, hard shadows. When using the easily installed Fresnel lens, you get a traditional Fresnel effect that's perfectly controllable and provides a focusing range of 5 to 60 degrees. The Alpha 1600 is compact and lightweight, comparable to traditional 1200W fixtures.
