Why the Pros Are Beginning to Use LED Stage Lighting?

Why the Pros Are Beginning to Use LED Stage Lighting?

10 Oct, 2018  /  by admin

LED lighting has grown in popularity over the past few years for a variety of reasons. It’s cheaper, lasts much longer than traditional lighting, and offers a warm look that’s attractive when it comes to stage lighting. In this blog we’re going to dig deep into why more theatrical productions are starting to turn to LED stage lighting.

Why Use LED Stage Lighting as Opposed to Incandescent Lighting?

Energy Efficient

LED lighting is much more energy efficient compared to traditional incandescent lighting. This allows theatrical productions to obviously save money, but also to reduce the amount of heat that’s produced from their lighting equipment. In addition, not only do LED lights save money, but they’re also able to be used in smaller venues where power constraints may be a real problem.

Reduced Maintenance

One of the key benefits of LED stage lighting is the low maintenance aspect thanks to the long lifespan of LED lighting. Most studies show that LED bulbs tend to last as much as 5 times as long as incandescent bulbs. This means that when you invest in LED stage lighting, you’ll likely save significant money when it comes to any maintenance related to switching bulbs.

Expanded Color Options

Thanks to technology that’s always evolving, LED lights offer a wider array of color options, which can make for a much more entertaining show or event. Most conventional lights will require color filters, while LED lights can typically display an almost endless array of colors without any additional equipment.

Safety First

LED lights have been proven to be much safer than traditional lighting as well. This means that you can ensure your lighting equipment not only lasts longer, but also provides a safer working environment for you and your crew.

Increased Brightness

Today’s LED lights are extremely bright. This brightness can allow you to create a wide array of stage effects and colors that will be sure to wow audiences. Read more about How To Properly Light A Stage.
