Online Guides: Effects Lights

Professional standard lighting systems are no longer found solely in large venues.

Welcome to our Effects Lights Online Advisor.

Whether at a club, a corporate event or a concert, you will have seen effects lighting in one form or another. Lighting effects are used to add dynamics to lighting systems, making standard stage lighting more exciting and visually appealing.

This guide will take a look at the basics of effects lighting, the various types of effects lights available, and how they are best used in both installation and touring environments. Throughout this guide we have used some terms that are peculiar to the lighting industry, and you will find an explanation of the most important of these in the FAQ section towards the end.

Our Online Advisor extends to several pages – you can jump from section to section using the index below or the navigation at the bottom of each page.
