LDI exhibitors put their best foot forward in a series of sessions free to all LDI attendees. Topics range from company updates to new product info or the hosting of an internationally acclaimed designer such as Jonathan Smeeton and his take on getting a job and getting it done best!
Learn how 4Wall Entertainment, a major, full-service company that specializes in providing entertainment lighting rentals, lighting systems design, and integration, collaborates with the award-winning design firm, Lightswitch, to create visually compelling projects including Descanso Gardens' Enchanted: Forest of Light in La Canada, CA, and others.
A study of the works of Jonathan Smeeton that addresses the tasks involved of taking original ideas to fruition. Studies the thought process and method that’s involved in successful production design. Using anecdotal stories of three productions—Taylor Swift, Keith Urban, and Sammy Hagar—discussing the physical and mental process that ultimately results in a successful production. CAD VS Drawings VS model miniatures in presentations. The how’s to get a job, keep the job, and maximize on the end result and future work/reputation building. Presented by Elation Professional.
A follow-up to ETC’s well-received Layers of Light presentation, Fifty Shades of R80 continues the discussion of how and why stage lighting is changing with the advent of LED-powered fixtures. New this year is additional material about LEDs. How long do they last…really? And how do we talk about their performance?
Color specialist Wendy Luedtke will explore the theory and sophisticated control that goes into LED-based additive color mixing, with the goal of helping lighting professionals better use the wonderfully variable—but not always intuitive—color capabilities of LED-powered stage lighting.
Innovative new radio technology has the ability to carry much more data while using less radio energy. This will lead to a lighting world where every DMX lighting fixture contains a tiny, inexpensive DMX/RDM receiver chip, and more and more of our shows and permanent installations are run without data wires. This session describes the benefits to lighting users as larger wireless systems are scaled up, how this is possible in an already crowded radio spectrum and the unique advantages to using a wireless system rather than a wired DMX system.
Speaker: Gary Fails, president, City Theatrical
