You have probably heard the term ‘intelligent lighting’ when booking an event entertainer or a DJ. It is important to know what exactly you are paying for. Lighting is critical at any event, in fact, no event happens without it; but not all forms of lighting work at every event. Proper lighting can set the right mood during any occasion, or even provide the necessary impetus to get your guests up and dancing.
Intelligent lighting is essentially a term used in reference to innovative types of stage lights. The lights are automatic, operating using a complex series of mechanisms that allow movements of light to create colorful effects. The resultant lighting arrangements create desired effects that will match your decor or transform the scene in line with your preference. Drama Sounds and Events Ltd takes you through some of the options available to clients.
Moving heads can rotate through 360-180 degrees, changing colours and patterns depending on their motion. The heads can either be tilted, move in a circular or pan motion. They offer quite a wide range of movement and a significantly light output compared to scanners.
Scanners create similar color patterns to moving heads but the mobility of their heads is quite limited. Scanners boast of an additional feature though, a moving mirror that provides enhanced ability to project patterns and colors all across the room. Scanners are faster than moving heads, but the latter tends to have a greater appeal to guests, thanks to the rotational motion.
LED bulbs are rapidly replacing traditional bulbs in entertainment and event circles. LED lighting is more of an additive than a stand-alone technology. These lights have revolutionized both scanners and moving heads, especially since the energy draw involved is pretty low.
