Lighting News (1:20) Before we dive into answering questions I wanted to discuss how to integrate video and lighting together. When you think about lighting and video you realize it’s not a new trend for our industry. At the core, lighting and video are actually the same things. They’re both intensity and color on pixels or in lighting when you really get down to it. The line between lighting and video are starting to blur together and coming together more and more. As we go into the new year Obsidian, is soon set to release it’s new pixel mapper, Dylos, very soon so these are just some new technology being released this year.

With conventional lights, they do use a dimmer or dimmer pack. Those will either plug into the wall or be hard-wired in. It will also get a DMX feed coming from the console. The out of the dimmer will come power through a power cable to the lights. Then dimmer turn on and off lights as the console controls it. With moving lights, it’s a little different because it gets both power and data. In a larger rig, you would most likely see a power distribution board. It’s just like a breaker box you would have in your house. This ties into a large power supply and will distribute the power to your moving lights. To get the power to the moving lights you would see socketpecs which is a multi-connector and allows you to use a breakout at the end of it. This breakout would have 6 ends coming out of it and you can then connect it to your moving lights. With moving light...
