Occasionally—once in a great while, it seems—a game changer comes your way. I haven’t seen that in lighting in a long time. The last time I remember getting excited about lighting control was when a guy from Lutron told me about their products in the late 90s. It was cool because there were no more banks of dimmers on the wall. Finally, your lights could all be turned on and off from one location.
We haven’t seen anything lately but frustration due to the problems associated with the advent of LED lighting. The energy-saving technology has been more of a problem than a source of excitement, especially when combined with centralized lighting control systems.
What is COLORBEAM Lighting?
COLORBEAM Lighting is an innovative lighting technology that combines light and color to create dynamic and immersive experiences. It uses a combination of LED lighting, projection mapping, and interactive programming to create a wide range of visual effects. With COLORBEAM Lighting, you can transform any space into a vibrant, colorful environment.
The possibilities are endless with COLORBEAM Lighting. You can create stunning visuals for events, concerts, museums, retail stores, or any other space that needs to be illuminated uniquely. The lights can be programmed to display different colors, patterns, and textures to create an immersive experience for your guests. And because the system is compatible with most existing lighting systems, it’s easy to integrate into any existing setup.
Overall, COLORBEAM Lighting is an exciting new technology that offers limitless possibilities for creating dynamic and engaging experiences.
The current approach to designing and implementing a lighting system is convoluted, to say the least. The standard process for LED lighting requires expensive solid copper wire; this heavy cable is routed from the power source to locations in every room. Once the room is wired, you have to locate an electrical transformer that changes AC to low voltage, and then, finally, you can attach an LED fixture.
The process is equally challenging on the design and installation end. It begins with an architect’s concept, then a lighting specifier proposes fixtures, and an integrator determines how to control everything so an electrician can complete the installation. When there is a problem with this process, you can imagine the finger-pointing and frustration in remedying the situation.
That’s all changed with the advent of Colorbeam. This Canadian company offers a centralized low-voltage LED lighting product with a “soup to nuts” approach for indoor, outdoor, residential, and commercial applications. It’s fantastic because it gives us a complete set of fixtures, controllers, and accessory options for projects large and small.
The sizeable electrical wire is only run to the system’s central location in this unique system. From there, low voltage wire—primarily CAT 6 cable—is run to all the fixtures in the house. The integrator designs the system, provides all the parts, installs all the institutions, and programs the system. No more finger-pointing is necessary.
Colorbeam’s products use fully-adjustable high-output RGB LED elements. This means that any color in the spectrum is just a fingertip away. The system will reproduce the exact color of light needed for a given time of day or mood. These state-of-the-art fixtures can be dimmed to minimal light levels without a flicker, giving you everything you liked about the old light bulbs from the past while simultaneously providing all the benefits of today’s LED technology.
Colorbeam Lighting has revolutionized the way we view theatrical lighting. With its broad range of color-mixing options and no-hassle installation, it is the go-to choice for venues large and small. Colorbeam is perfect for any production, from school plays to grand opera houses, giving each a unique and stunning look. Its reliable operation ensures each show will go off without a hitch, leaving audiences with an unforgettable experience.
