Should schools invest in intelligent lighting?

Intelligent lighting fixtures can be controlled remotely—enabling you to choose colours, gobos (patterns), animations, zoom, focus, etc from your lighting console.

The cost of intelligent lighting has fallen substantially and, because it’s much more flexible, fewer lighting fixtures are needed to deliver the coverage and looks needed.

Key benefits include:

  • Little or no working at height as the lights can be focussed from ground level.
  • More than one show can be programmed in the space at the same time without the need to re-rig lights between shows (great when you have multiple assessments in the same space at the same time).
  • Students will be able to learn skills that they need to work in the events industry when the leave education.
What are the benefits of LED lighting for school halls and theatres?

LED stage lighting and house lighting is very popular in both education and professional settings.

There are significant long term cost savings to be made with longer lamp life and energy savings. Less maintenance, and the ability to change colours (and often focus) from you lighting console means less need to work at height.

In terms of short-term cost savings, there’s often less cabling required as part of the installation, and there’s no requirement to install separate dimmers which saves considerable space in your control room or sub stage.

Will we get any kind of warranty?

You will get the full benefit of any manufacturer's warranty and, if you choose to include an Adlib service contract in your project, you’ll be able to predict the ongoing cost of maintaining your installation to ensure it’s as good as it was on day one for years to come.
