YONKERS, NEW YORK – Continuing to build upon their line of next generation LED luminaires, Altman Lighting is proud to announce the new SIREN Series AFS-500 and AFS-700 followspots. Designed to be a powerful yet economical solution for any theatrical design, the new SIREN Series followspots provide the full functionality of a traditional followspot but are packed with powerful new feature sets and operator enhancements.

More details from Altman (

“Understanding the need for high-performance LED luminaires in today’s theatrical environments, we are very excited about the introduction of our new AFS-500 and AFS-700 LED followspots,” said Nicolas Champion, Altman Lighting Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “Along with the recently released AP-150 LED Par luminaire, our SIREN Series of cost-effective theatrical solutions were engineered to meet and exceed the expectations of lighting professionals worldwide.”

The most compact of the SIREN Series LED followspots, the AFS-500 is a lightweight, 490-watt, color-changing followspot with a rich feature set. Using the on-board controller, the luminaire’s dimming, color wheel, iris and CTO features can all be controlled manually or via DMX. Combined with an available color boomerang and a manual zoom range from 7-13 degrees, the AFS-500 produces over 10,000 lumens of output for industry-leading power and flexibility in an affordable lighting solution.

Delivering almost 14,000 lumens with range up to 200 feet, the AFS-700 is the maintenance-free workhorse followspot the industry needs. With a precision zoom system that delivers a 7-13 degree motorized or manual beam spread, the luminaire’s 18-facet iris, dimming, CTO, and color wheel can all be controlled via DMX, or on an adjustable control pad that adapts for right or left-handed operators. Additionally, with its quiet 37dBa maximum cooling system, the AFS-700 can be placed anywhere in your acoustically sensitive lighting environment.

“Both the AFS-500 and AFS-700 LED followspots were designed in the traditions of quality and affordability which are known to be a foundation of Altman Lighting,” added Pete Borchetta, Altman Lighting Product Innovation. “While introducing several key, new features, these performance-driven and energy-efficient luminaires are packed with powerful capabilities that will accentuate any theatrical or live event lighting design.”
