The Altman 1000Q Follow Spot is a ruggedly constructed medium-throw 1000 watt theatre fixture. The 1000Q produces a narrow, hard or soft edged beam. With easy to use controls mounted at the rear of the fixture, the beam can be adjusted from spot to flood at any distance. The beam may be further attenuated by using the integral iris for spot size adjustment and the framing shutters for top and bottom edge framing in the flood focus position. The 1000Q can be used in any application where manual control of a lighting beam is required to follow a performer and to vary beam size, quality and color.

At tightest spot (with Iris), it throws a beam of light 40 footcandles 2 feet in diameter from 100 feet.
At full flood, it throws a beam 22 footcandles 25 feet in diameter from 100 feet.

Vertical tilt of 40° up, 60° down with positive locking knob.
Pans 360° on included stand.
Hinged top access door for easy bulb and reflector replacement.

        Bought this for my church. It is a great product and will serve us for a long time. Price is the best that I could find. The problem that I had was with the stand. What should have been a 15 minute job to put together turn out to be 2 hours. The threads in the lamp holder were not right and would not thread into post. Instead of sending it back, I took it to a machine shop to get it fixed and this was a quick fix. Other than this, great product.

              This follow spot is used in a historic 300 seat theatre and works well....simple to operate and is exactly what I expected it to be.

              This could be an outstanding item but the people behind it have quit trying. [...]. The base on the stand was improperly threaded and will only work when inverted. The color changer is too big and blocks part of the beam when the iris is closed down. All of these things appear to be caused by human carelessness. I have tried to work with Altman support to resolve the color changer issue but they will ask for information on the phone and then not reply to my emails when I send the requested info. I could return the item but it would cost hundreds of dollars to ship. In summary, the support team at Altman turn a 5 star product into a 1 star product.

                We bought this light for our school. Totally mechanical, and a proven design make this the follow spot to buy. It came well packaged, and works like a charm!

                  I bought this for use as a follow spot for concerts and plays. There was a plastic "safety" knob on the base that broke the first day and the unit is fairly noisy. Other than that, it is easy to operate and does what it is supposed to do.
