Choosing and maintaining automated lights and consoles can be or become very involved. I have been a technical director for over 30 years and I have really seen the lighting industry change from basic lighting fixtures, dimmers and lighting boards to amazing color changing and moving light fixtures and lighting consoles that really allow you to design a production. Automated lighting fixtures and automated consoles aren’t cheap. Even lower end products have a cost. So, making the right decision will help you purchase the right products for your church.
