Add light to your event to create instant mood, ambiance and dynamics and take your event to the next level.
Add light to your hall, wedding venue marquee or other venue with washes or moving effects (such as the main page image).
Stage lighting / Live Performances
Consider wash lighting combined with profile spots, follow spots, accent lights and fresnels.
Create interest through lighting from a number of direction, i.e. from both wings of the stage, from overhead, from stage front low, in addition to using accent lighting (profile spots, or tight moving head beams can also be used). We recommend the use of our ShowTec Creator DMX controller to allow multiple scenes, or the use of pre-programmed ‘shapes’ if you are looking for a quick start.
Band lighting – events with up to 500 people
Start with plenty of wash lighting – which you can also vary the intensity in time with the beat – set to light from both sides of the stage, and from behind the stage if possible.
Increase the wow effect and audience interaction by adding in stage blinders and strobes. Consider a little smoke or a faker for some extra atmospherics!
Concerts – events in larger venues with 500+ people
Again, start with wash lighting, but consider adding a lighting rig which will give far greater versatility to how and where you can mount your lighting. Our 290mm box truss will allow you to build podiums, goalposts, and overhead structures for lighting unit suspension. You can event mount a screen to show more dynamic graphical effects or to relay a live image of the group to elsewhere in the venue.
Moving head spots and washes mounted overhead and at stage level in front of the performers add dynamism and versatility.
Add overhead stage blinders to be able to light your audience and bring them in to key moments of the set.
Use atmospherics to show defined lighting beams. Haze machines produce a delicate mix suitable for band use where you want to accentuate your lights but don’t want to obscure the view of your performers.
Lighting a DJ set
Consider moving head effects, strobes and lasers combined with atmospheric effects, i.e. smoke machines, fazers, or hazers. Our Showtec Phantom moving head spots are a dynamic fast-moving head which can be quickly controlled with pre-set shapes via the ShowTec Creator DMX controller (up tp 32 moving heads of 24 channels can be controlled).
Or for a retro glow party, mix UV blacklight with lasers and smoke!
Mount your lighting effects on our range of industry standard box truss podiums, goal-posts, or full lighting truss rigs available to hire separately or combine with our PA hire options to create full event packs.
General venue lighting – washes and ambiance
Wall washes, using wash bars or standard PAR64 washes can really bring a room alive.
Combine some subtle (slow moving, non-pulsing) effects to highlight areas of interest, or another option is to use a moving head spot with prism engaged and a slow gobo rotation to uplight roof and ceilings.
Use lower power accent lights, such as a 20w accent light to light buffet tables, bar areas etc alongside the more generalised wash lighting.
Lighting weddings is all about subtlety and simplicity with classic colour schemes including pastel shades.
Add low output festoon or strand lighting for a star effect and consider subtle accent lighting of centrepieces, tables, buffet and bar areas.
If you have a band or DJ as part of your wedding reception, add in separate lighting capabilities as described from the band or DJ sections, but don’r rely on the more subtle venue lighting alone to get the party started – for this you’ll need FX lights or moving heads to create some movement.
All of our lighting is DMX capable and we are also able to supply a range of DMX controllers.
Our controllers range from basic options through to our top of the range dual DMX universe Showtec controller. This controller is pre-programmed with a wide range of lighting shapes, and cable of controlling up to 32 intelligent effects of up to 24 channels per fixture.
Truss, rigging and stands
To compliment our lighting options, we also supply a wide range of truss systems, and for those needing a complete event solution, we would be pleased to provide you with a quote for a combined sound, light and rigging package.
All of our lighting can be supplied with 290mm lighting truss compatible clamps, and we can also supply safety eyes and safety cables and a range of DMX cables from 50cm right up to 30m in length.
Delivery & hire rates
We can deliver within the Sydney metro area at competitive rates. We can also provide a skilled lighting operator who is also able to design a light show matching your specific requirements.
When hiring, please keep in mind that some equipment is heavy in nature and may require a 2 person lift or assistance to mount on stands or trussing. Always ensure that any lighting fixture mounted overhead is adequately secured. This will require the use of one or more separate safety chains or wires in addition to the main mounting point.
