    Intensity effects on Incandescent Edison vs. LED edison bulbs

    Recently, our next event was going to be based around stranger things. Loved the show and since it has become a smash hit, why not pull some ideas from them. We have a ton of incandescent Edison bulbs in our stage design and I am afraid to run any type of intensity effects on them in fear of...

    Looking for Non-Flickering LED Tape solution

    Every month, my Church puts on large scale events, each month themed differently. This challenges me to not always have the same lighting design as the month before it. My first idea is to create a box with LED tape inside and have it powered through a driver so I can control it from my console...

    Changing out transformer in EU fixtures

    Yes those are the specs of the fixtures. I have been using them for so many of our services and events I know fairly well how I can use them. They do have quite a bit of functionality...if they wanted to work for me. They are really good for punching color and doing some cool clipping effects...

    Need recommendations for space upgrade

    It is a space once used for our church's youth ministry, but now is going to be used for our leadership school's services and any interviews/videos that we will be shooting in here.

    Changing out transformer in EU fixtures

    Recently, my pastor asked me to find a solution to the lighting we have at our church. For years we have owned around 20 Stairville 252 Led bars. Some have seen worse days as they sit in disrepair, but that is besides the fact. I have been told that I can simply swap out the 230v 50hz...

    Another question! I know that other GrandMA models have the ability, that once inside a new venue, can center all of their focus palettes in one action. Is that possible with the Dot 2?
