Things to Consider When Buying Professional Stage Lighting
When you’re a house of worship that offers professional broadcasts of sermons, live performances, or anything else, you’ll need the right equipment to make it all happen. One of the most important pieces of equipment will always be the lighting for your stage, and how much or how big you need the lighting to be will vary depending on the size of your organization and of course, the size of the stage.
If you’re new to stage lighting equipment, not to worry because most of them have the same features, so your main job will be to determine which of those features is most important to you. Some of the features are discussed below.
While the cost of the lighting shouldn’t be the main consideration when choosing this equipment, it does need to be considered because most organizations have budgets they have to stick to. Stage lighting can cost as little as $400 or as much as $8,000, but companies end up spending somewhere in the middle of these two numbers and can still get just the lighting system they need.
What Comes with Your Lighting?
Some stage lighting comes by itself, while others come with additional accessories you’ll likely find convenient. The more equipment that comes with the lighting, the quicker you’ll be able to get it set up properly. Fortunately, most stage lighting comes with all of the cables, power supplies, and reflectors you need to start setting it up as soon as you get it out of the package. Still, you’ll want to make sure you know exactly what comes with it before you buy it so there won’t be any surprises once you get it home.
Size and Weight
This might sound like a minor detail, but the fact is, the lighter and smaller the lights are, the easier it will be to both set it up properly and to transport it from one location to another should you ever need to do that. Lighting equipment can be cumbersome to work with even when it doesn’t weigh much and is small in size, but the smaller and lighter it is, the easier it will be to work with it from then on.
Yes, lights have “colors” and hues, and they even have a certain amount of dimming power, all of which are important when you’re choosing your lighting equipment. A good omni-colored LED light is what most organizations find they need, and make sure it has some dimming capability as well so you get the special effects you need to make the production great.
