    So I just spent the past two days a the Chicago Lyric Opera at the Vari*Lite Roadshow watching demos of their lights and talking to various people from the company. I was looking at trying to get a demo for a VL1000 at my highschool, and noticed it has what looks like an accessory mount on the fron, in front of the lense. What does/ can it hold, and what is the size of it (Whould a Source4 PAR top hat fit in there?). Thanks.

    Floor Stand does not connect to the front of the unit.

    The VL1000 is only designed to hang "yoke up". The floor stand allows you to mount it on the ground "yoke down".

    You can throw color correction in their, or anything like that. Basically, they "designed" the fixture for the theatre, and theatre people always like their gel frames for whatever, even with the CMY.

    This is why you never buy direct from the manufacturer...always go to a dealer...if you're paying list price...you're getting ripped off.

    To answer the question, any 7.5 in Leko accessory will technically fit. However, anything but a gel frame or a top/half hat will void your warranty. This is per my manufacturing rep @ Genlyte/Vari*Lite.
