Use BeamCalc to calculate the geometry and photometrics of spotlight beams. Place and direct up to three light sources (chosen from the included library) to evaluate and compare lighting characteristics: elevation angle, beam and field pool width, illumination, and shadow length.

Light sources and focus targets can be positioned numerically or graphically. Work in either meters/lux or feet/footcandles.

In Simple mode you only need to select a source and set a throw distance to calculate the beam size and illumination. Quickly compare different sources and distances.

The source library contains over 150 fixtures including ETC Source Four, Strand SL, Selecon Pacific, Altman Shakespeare, Colortran, generic PAR64 and others. Studio and location fresnels from Altman, Arri, DeSisti, Mole-Richardson and Strand. Future updates will bring additional manufacturers and fixtures, both current and out-of-production.

Customer Reviews


Through multiple versions, two handsets, and a few OS updates a glitch has plagued this software making it nearly unusable.

When I pinch to zoom out or try to adjust the view it zooms in and in and in every time I touch the screen. Very frustrating.

A year or two ago I contacted the developer who was not able to come up with a solution.
