Stage lighting with LEDs: low energy consumption, high performance. A common light bulb turns five per cent of the energy it uses into light. This low rate is hardly topped by halogen lamps which go for only 15 to 30 per cent. An LED in contrast turns 95 per cent of the energy it uses into light. Thus, LEDs are ideal for stage lighting and lighting engineering since they are good for your energy balance and for the environment.
No sweat, no tears: Stage lighting with LEDs. The LED lighting technology has many advantages for artists and lighting engineers. The lights dissipate such little heat that they can be touched by hand while they are used. After the event they can be directly removed and taken away. Common control devices can be damaged because of the developing heat. This is no problem with LEDs.
The limelight can cause sweat – not only out of excitement. This is not the case with this type of stage lighting. Thus, the headlights can be placed very close to the artist or the object.
Maintenance? Not too often with LED stage lighting. LEDs have a much higher longevity than other lighting devices. Some hundred or thousand hours – then the final straw usually comes for common lamps. LEDs last from 50.000 to 100.000 hours. This makes much maintenance unnecessary. And this relieves your budget. Fans are hardly necessary. If there are any, they are light ones. This means, no disturbing sounds and less weight – further advantages of the LED lighting technology.
Strong colours, high luminous efficacy. Stage lighting with LEDs creates bright light and strong colours. You do not need any additional colour-filters. The LEDs create the colours themselves since the RGB colours are part of the LEDs within a headlight. Thus, every colour can be created. You only need a headlight. Smaller locations are the perfect match for the low energy consumption of the LEDs. One concert, for example, needs a lot of energy for instruments, amplifiers or sound effect devices. This is a burden for the electric supply mains. But the LED’s low energy consumption eases it.
