What Will You Need From Your Controller?
Before making a purchase, decide on the key requirements expected from your lighting controller, for example is the controller for dimming static theatre lights or for controlling multi-channel DMX effects, or a combination of both? Will you want to fit smaller dimmer or switch packs near the lights to be controlled, or will you want to centralise all the power control in one place? It is a good idea to think of the future when it comes to disco or stage lighting systems. You may only want to control one or two lights now, but if this is likely to expand you may want to consider a bigger controller with more features that can grow with you!
The Styles & Features of Controllers Available:
Showtec offer some modest priced combination lighting controllers, where it's easy to build multi-step sequences for the effects lights while easily controlling the dimming channels. Anytronic produce a popular range of controllers and DMX dimmer packs, these are often selected by schools because of their operational simplicity and sturdy construction.
