    KISS FM’s annual Wango Tango concert in Los Angeles always draws a galaxy of stars. This year’s concert held at the 27,000-seat Home Depot Center was no exception, with the likes of Maroon 5, Afrojack, Flo Rida, Fall Out Boy, Miguel, Jason Derulo, Demi Lovato, Icona Pap, Will.i.am, Bruno Mara and Avril Lavigne performing on stage. Such a superstar lineup deserves a superstar lightshow, and that’s exactly what LD Todd Roberts (Visions Lighting, Brea, CA) delivered. The spectacular non-stop exciting… View this story

    Many audio companies already own a few lights for a basic stage wash, with the knowledge that promoters are willing to pay a bit more for the added service. Tossing a few stands and lights into the truck, and setting them up at the show, can be well worth the effort for the extra revenue. A good way to go about it is to start small, simply providing a few lights for basic stage illumination, and then building up over… View this story

    When searching for the perfect spot luminaire system to enhance “Vive Forever,” the West End musical based on the songs of the Spice Girls, lighting designer Howard Harrison held a light shootout.  The Martin Professional award-winning MAC Viper Profile was chosen to light the stage. “The Viper is a very good unit, very bright. It’s as simple as that,” Harrison says. “We use Vipers in every scene – they are the workhorses of our lighting rig for ‘Viva Forever.’ “Throughout… View this story

    Calculating Illuminance Most manufacturers of automated lighting provide photometric data showing the throw distance, the beam, and field width as well as the illuminance in lux and foot-candles (fc). (1) By referencing the chart below (Figure 1),  the designer can quickly gauge whether or not an instrument will provide the target illuminance and field width at a given throw distance. A chart like this will get you in the ballpark, allowing you to select lighting instruments and rough in the… View this story

    This article is provided by ChurchTechArts.   Our existing lighting system is pretty bad. When it was installed, money was tight and the church did what churches do; put in the wrong stuff, installed wrong. We have 72 channels of dimming installed, roughly 45 of which work. And some of the “working” channels won’t hold a full load, so we’ll have lights shut off at random intervals. When the electricians came out to survey the system, they spent about two… View this story
