Altman Lighting, aka Altman Stage Lighting Co., is a manufacturer of Stage, Studio, Architectural, and Video lighting products. Previously located in Yonkers, NY, now in Denver, CO, Altman is probably the second most well-known name in stage lighting, following ETC. Before ETC's SourceFour was introduced in 1992, Altman's 360, and from 1974, 360Q, series of ERSs dominated venues from Community Theatres to Broadway stages for about three decades.
