    Hi,

    I'm pretty well at the bottom of any lighting credibility heirarchy, and that doesn't trouble me. I don't do this for a living.

    I'm trying to get better (more creative, less repetitive) with my party lighting. I have ~45 fixtures (half led pars, the rest things that blink/spin/move), wireless DMX, ArtNet, and I generally control it with software I write rather than a lighting desk.

    I have a comms (RF and WAN) background.

    Thanks in advance for your advice and patience,

    Lyle

    Welcome to CB.

    Just a note that as we discovered this week on this thread - https://www.controlbooth.com/threads/what-happened-to-pars.41490/

    LED's and movers are already obsolete and you need to start thinking along these lines

    Thanks. While there are always new lights, I'm happy my led pars aren't history yet. :)

    It's a bit like being in the States and saying "I'm from DC", or being in the EU and saying "I'm from Brussells". :)

    Canberra, that little place where all the "decisions" are made for the rest of the country.

    welcome from another Aussie. :)
