Ever since the first LED “Pars” came on the scene a dozen years ago, the “Par” part has been a misnomer. Originally an acronym for “Parabolic Aluminized Reflector,” PAR fixtures made efficient use of an inefficient bulb’s luminous output by reflecting and directing the brightness in a desired direction. LED Pars, by contrast, just use LEDs mounted on a circuit board facing the opening of a fixture enclosure. The LEDs are so much better than conventional bulbs at turning electricity into lumens instead of heat that LED Pars have quickly replaced conventional PAR cans for live events. And the newest LED Pars come in all kinds of shapes and sizes, from the cute little GLP X4 Atom, which uses a single 20W COB light source, to the large, high-powered Claypaky K20 S20 HCR.
