  1. Use LEDs for Your Lighting:

LED technology has completely changed the ways of lighting, making it an invaluable option for your event. Here are a few reasons why you must choose LEDs for your event:

You can control your lighting plays an important role in creating an aesthetic. The ‘intelligent’ head, who employs controllable motorscan move around your lights dramatically.

Another important light idea is the usage of pixel mapping, particularly when it is sent through image source material. The sixteen LED tile projected a singular pixel in a huge image!

Make your audience dance with the the Moving heads, inadvertently making it a truly groovy night.

Animated Effects: Your light show and the visual effects are always complemented with animation!  Your LEDs lighting operator desks can also perform real time editing, once again making the video effects a must have in your party!

  2. Illumination is Crucial: There is a certain speciality in illuminated spaces, and one can never go wrong with an subtle classy white light bar! This illumination, created by a cleverly created lighted glass, allows for it to provide a distinguished and unique look for your event! Make sure to try out different colours to help enhance the look of the bar as well!
  3. Spotlighting! What is a better way to light up your event, than a couple of spotlights to provide humour to your space! By using spotlights, you are not only efficient in energy saving and costs, but also being flexible in creating emphasis and laughter in your event! Spotlights can also vary in colour and intensity, allowing you to truly set the mood for your event!
  4. Go Gobo! if you are looking to try out funky lighting, the old fashioned gobo is your dearest friend. A true kaleidoscope of lights and colours, you can use your gobo (pre cut etched patterns made from glass or metal) to give you an artistic finish, boosting your aesthetics to another level!
