    Hi all, I have a DMX decoder for RGB LED tape and I want to wire it up for use on a show. Its clear how the tape gets wired in but I have got a bit confused on how the power supply hooks up.

    Are you using the ETC Releve Spot? Would you buy it again?

    I am suggesting some lights to update a small theatre and as much as I want to like the Releve, it seems hard to believe it will be very useful given its low brightness. The type of theatre is exactly what seems to be the market for this fixture, but looking at ETC's own photometrics app it is...

    The Perfect Mover?

    Excuse the dumb question but, are there any moving lights with RGBW color mixing and shutters in the same fixture? Our venue is looking at buying a few movers. Last year we rented a High End Solaframe 750 which was great apart from the CMY mixing and CTO.

    Hello all, I have LED tape that is functioning and programable but the blue and white colors are significantly dimmer than the red or green or any color mixing options. I have tried switching decoders and switching the leads on the wiring but still the blue and white are dim. Any suggestions...

    Focusing Source Four LED Ellipsoidals

    So I'm focusing my first rig consisting of LED ellipsoidals for the area front lights and I'm noticing an interesting artifact that I'm not used to with incandescent ellipsoidals. The LED elllipsoidals are Source Four LED Series 2 Lustr+ with EDLT tubes. Each individual beam field appears to be...

    Budget LED Pars Recommendations

    Hello! Just had my design budget slashed due to a set overspend and so now I'm on the hunt for 9 budget LED pars that will take DMX control. I need them ideally to be RGBW, have strobe capability and be under £150/$180. If they had custom accessories like hats or barn doors that would also...

    Best Way to Mount LED Tape?

    We do a lot of LED tape install on our various sets, and we always question the best way to attach the tape to the scenery/prop/etc. We've used runs of velcro, packing tape over it and stapled down, hot glue, double sided tape, and others I'm sure I'm forgetting about. A lot of the time we are...

    S4 Series 2 Lustr vs Ovation E-910FC

    Has anyone compared these fixtures? Any thoughts? I was thinking about purchasing a mix of them as I hear the Ovations have more saturated colors. I was thinking Ovations for high sides, back lighting, some front lighting and for the stage wash Source Four Series 2 Lustrs. I know buying...

    Birthday Cake Candles LED

    Hey Folks, I am mounting the show Crimes of the Heart and have just been told (the week before tech) that open flame will not be allowed without a fire-watch from the local FD (I should have known this, but hoped the College had an internal training). The scene "requires" that 30 birthday...

    LED Stage Wash good-to-knows...

    Alright, we've decided to go with LED Source Fours or a similar fixture. Is there anything we should pay attention to? Series 2 Lustr or Daylight HD or Tungsten HD or a mix? Any other Source Four LED alternatives? Should we swap out existing lens tubes? How many of each degree of tubes is...

    Replacing ERS Lekos with Moving Fixtures

    A local venue I work at has pondered replacing all ERS (front lighting) Lekos (currently conventional Source Fours) with LED Moving Heads. Obviously doing a 1:1 swap would be insanely expensive. But if we replaced our stage wash with say 4 or 5 Ayrton Ghiblis on each batten. They believe that...

    Mini-Strip MR16 LED replacements?

    Hello; anyone out there ever tried replacing MR16's (EYC) in their L&E Mini-Strips? We're currently researching the best way to get life out of the units - the sockets seem pitted since on a weekly basis we're either losing a unit to burn out or just charred pins; not sure an LED would solve the...
