Applications of the Sparx 18 LED Washbeam:

Trade fairs






TwinZoom Effect

Exclusively from JB-Lighting – the patented TwinZoom. With the TwinZoom, the outer LED ring and the inner area can be zoomed separately from each other – completely infinitely variable from 3°–70° (1:23). Together with the LED single pixel control, absolutely innovative, aesthetically pleasing and effective light scenes can be created, of which one did not dare to dream.


The basic color temperature, from which all colors are automatically mixed, is freely selectable on the Sparx 18, making it an excellent addition to any lighting ensemble.

STEPLESS ZOOM: 3° – 70° (1:23)

The luminosity and zoom range of 3°–70° of the Sparx 18 are impressive. Virtually noiseless, absolutely precise and fast, the Sparx 18 changes from extremely narrow to wide beam distribution. When TwinZoom is used, you can be sure of its wow factor.

Narrow beam (min. 3°)

Wide distribution (max. 70°)


Thanks to the scattered light-optimised beam of the Sparx 18 and the TwinZoom, precise, extremely homogeneous light projections from Hard Edge to Soft Edge can be produced. To further reduce the minimum stray light of the Sparx18, a honeycomb shade can be used as an optional extra.

Hard edge

Soft edge


The Sparx 18 makes it possible to produce the highest quality multicolor beams and color gradients. Impressive beam shapes can also be achieved which are unique in this form.


The continuously rotatable and positionable beam shape creates asymmetrical, oval beams. This beam form is suitable e.g. in the theatre excellent as an aisle light or at trade fairs for the illumination of rectangular objects. Of course, the TwinZoom can also be used in this case to individually adjust the beam width and characteristics. In combination with the endless rotation of the Beamshape module, extremely dynamic, circular animation effects can also be achieved.
