Lighting

There are 96 dimmers, 53 LED lights including 11 moving lights, and approximately 50 standard tungsten instruments.  There are four separate circuits providing non-dimmable power to all LED lights and a separate circuit for the projector dowser and mirror-ball.  There is a separate switched circuit in the front of the booth which controls the power to the V-hazer, and two switchable circuits for the FOH moving lights.  These circuits are controlled by toggle switches in the lighting booth.

We operate using a dual monitor ETC Ion board with 1024 outputs and a 2×10 fader wing.  ETC’s RFR wireless remote is available that can be operated from your iPAD or Android tablet (not provided by DCSS).
