Par 56 is a type of Parcan, the number 56 refers to the diameter of the lamp in 1/8ths of an inch. Parcans use various different type of lamps, which have a fixed beam angle and can't be varied in the way that profiles or fresnels can. Par lamps give out an oval beam, hence why you will usually need to rotate the lamp inside the parcan to achieve the focus you are after.
