Kick off the new year with an exciting lunch and learn on theatrical lighting that will lend itself to our follow-up talk in March when we will be touring one of the local theatres.


About the Talk

This presentation is designed to offer an introduction to the technology and design of entertainment lighting. The integration of this type of lighting, its associated power requirements and infrastructure can be intimidating to those not familiar with this part of the lighting world. In this CEU, we break down the topic into easily understandable components. We aim to send everyone away with a solid foundation of information in which to more confidently design and integrate flexible, useful lighting and power.

Subjects covered:

Fixture types and their uses
Power and diversity
Control and integration
Managing scope and project delivery
