Before the invention of moving lights, if a lighting engineer wanted to give the illusion of movement they would either need to sequence between several fixed lights, or, employ a good follow spot operator.
Also, to set the position of a light, or vary the beam angle, or change the colour of a light would require a lighting engineer to physically access the light.
Modern moving led lights now allow the lighting engineer to do all these things from the lighting controller or console of their choice.

Product listings for Moving Head Lights
All the lighting fixtures in this category have DMX control over pan and tilt, with various DMX modes that allow you to choose how many DMX channels the fixture will use.
The greater the number of channels a moving head is allowed to use, the finer control your stage lighting engineer will have over the unit.
Wash moving heads provide a soft edged illuminated area. Most include multiple coloured LED's allowing colour mixing. Sometimes they will have a manual zoom, however the most useful washes have a motorized zoom. If your lighting bar is pushed for space a wash moving head can replace static par cans.
These fixtures normally include built in patterns and a selection of colours. Avoid manual focus units and go for motorised focus. More advanced units include motorised zoom and prism effects.
LED Beam effects
Popular on TV shows this kind of lighting effect works really well with haze effects allowing the shaft of light from each beam to be seen clearly.
A standard colour wheel will have a number of separate colours and 'clear' or white light, they allow the lighting fixture to be programmed to select a single colour or cycle through a rainbow effect.
You cannot mix colours unless the light unit has more than one colour wheel.
COB Led light source
Instead of multiple individual LED's and multiple lenses the COB led light source has a single lens and a multicolour led light block.
