Dynamic lighting that sparks excitement

Moving lights are lighting instruments used to create motion with bright colors, patterns, or textures in your event space. They can be used to set a mood for your event or to generate excitement. You can create captivating light shows and special effects that will leave a lasting impression on your audience. A key tool to enhancing your next function is moving lights for a more dynamic event experience.

There are three main types of moving lights:

  • Wash lights: These LED lights can change color, position, and brightness. They are used to create motion and splash colors throughout the event and can be set up on stage to light up the ceiling, or rigged from the ceiling to hit certain points around the room. 
  • Spotlights: Spots can go beyond the properties of basic wash lights to actually change the properties of the light, such as creating texture. There are many uses for spotlights, ranging from custom gobos that display moving patterns to follow spots that highlight presenters or audience members as they move throughout the room. Spotlights can rotate and zoom to highlight specific people or areas. They can use color wheels, gobos, prisms, strobe capabilities, internal shutters, and motorized focus to deliver a high-end experience for your audience.
  • Beam lights: Beams are popular for outdoor events, concerts, and festivals. They are an affordable option that offers a hard edge and maximum brightness. 

Engage your audience with versatile light effects

Moving lights create excitement and drama to engage your audience. You can deliver a premium experience by investing in moving lights. They can be used for walk-ups, videos, awards presentations, parties, concerts and more.
