Engineering & Technology: Lighting for Theatres & Studios

Illuminating stage and studio for performance and video broadcast and recording.

Technical lighting and theatre technologies are critical systems for TV Studios, auditoria, performance theatres, classrooms, and video teleconference rooms. All require balanced, well planned, infrastructure and systems to support the live event, broadcast, streaming, or recording process, focusing attention on the presenters while preserving the fidelity of displayed information and providing flexibility for set and scene changes. With a focus on sustainable design, careful, experienced selection of luminaires and show controls are essential for energy efficient studio and theatre systems with simple, intuitive operational interfaces.
