Entertainment Lighting Applications
Entertainment lighting has traditionally been the term used to describe the production lighting for theatres, films, television shows, concert tours, discotheques, exhibitions, awards ceremonies, cruise ships and holiday camps. In fact, anywhere professional lighting equipment is used for lighting entertainment productions, including educational establishments such as schools, colleges and universities, all feature entertainment lighting.
Recently, amateur productions have grown in technical expertise and quality, particularly in the US worship sector. The entertainment lighting used in worship productions is now cutting edge and rivals many high end professional shows.
Whilst LED lighting offers exciting possibilities, it is important to recognise that LED lighting is not currently a complete replacement for all other entertainment lighting sources. Traditional tungsten profile fixtures offer a consistent quality of light that is difficult to replicate with LED fixtures and discharge moving lights offer output and features yet to be achieved with an LED alternative. However, embrace LED technology for what it can do well and it will surely add a new dimension to almost any production lighting system.
