DMX512 (Digital Multiplex with 512 pieces of information). Originally intended to standardize communication among lighting dimmers, DMX512 has been adapted to control a variety of stage lighting and effects such as intelligent lights, gobos, lasers, and fog machines. Lighting designers even use DMX512 in many architectural lighting scenarios.

DMX data is typically transferred over an XLR-5 cable, although occasionally, DMX capable XLR-3 cables are also used, especially the lighting fixtures on Amazon. RS-485 only requires 3 lines, ground, Data+, and Data-. However, an additional pair of data lines were added to allow for future growth, requiring the XLR-5 cable. These connectors and their pin-outs are shown below.

At this price, you should not expect much, but this light is just about everything you could have asked for.

Its DMX control is easy and intuitive, the colors are vibrant, and the sound control features are good (as long as your sound source is loud enough)

Something to note is that the light is programmed to have three color combinations (red white and blue, white and orange, and purple violet and green.)

You can control each of those color sets, but not the colors that individually make them up. If you were expecting to just use one color at a time, you’re out of luck; otherwise, the combinations work well together.

This unit is not perfect by any means but for the price and function of a follow spot, it’s earned its merits.

The lights are lightweight themselves, and mobile. They have useful handles to carry and most people can hold them without much strain. When the shutter is opened fully, it covered a majority of the stage, and the only mechanical downfall, or con, of this light is the lack of the ability to close the shutter fully.

If the led bulb had been an RGBA or RGBAW, the color options would be far more flexible and user-friendly. The price, compared to the feel of the unit, may seem slightly high, but the advantages outweigh the lack of these features altogether. The unit is near silent aside from a small fan noise that varies in speed when the light is at 100%.

Overall, if you just need a basic follow spot that’s solid and easy to use, then this unit comes highly recommended. But if you’re getting hired just to be the follow spot technician, then invest in much more pro gear.

4 things may help you before buying stage light

#1 Assign effects and programming

The key to good lighting design is to mix and match fixtures and tones to create the emotions and effects you need. When programming, use complementary or contrasting color schemes depending on the mood you want. The best way to improve your design skills is to visit different venues and shows to see what other designers have done. Pay attention to the elements that make you feel the best and try to imitate and improve them.

#2 Lighting hardware

When setting up lighting, you need hardware that safely and reliably locates and secures the fixtures you need. Increasing lighting can increase their coverage and protect them from accidental contact and vibration.

If you perform at various venues, you may encounter the challenge of setting up lights. A variety of lighting brackets can help simplify setup. A basic T-bar bracket with a tripod mount provides good all-round lighting support.

#3 Lighting cable

The fixture you choose will determine the cable required to connect the system. Typically, each luminaire requires a power cord and a corresponding extension cord (if needed). In addition, if you connect the fixtures via a DMX cable, each fixture requires a DMX cable. The DMX cable uses an XLR connector with 3 and 5 pins.

#4 Lighting case

Once you’ve started building a collection of lighting and stage effects, it’s important to protect your investment. Transporting unprotected gears and improper storage can easily damage fixtures, lenses and controls.

 

Conclusion

Stage lighting LED serves two major functions: visibility and atmosphere. Some lighting fixtures, like spots and pars aimed at the stage, help the congregation stay tuned in to what’s happening onstage.

And atmospheric wash lights and uplights utilized in the background can complement the stage or architecture of your space. So whether it’s sight lines or ambiance you’re after, choosing the right lighting setup can help you create an effective and engaging environment for worship.
