How Lighting Can Transform a Room
Event lighting is one of the lesser-known elements an audio visual company can provide that can help make or break your event. Already beautiful events can be amplified with depth and richness to create a truly stunning affair that is sure to be talked about long after it is over. We will discuss how lighting can amplify your design, direct the focus of your audience, add ambiance to your overall décor, and provide any film atmosphere the proper setting to translate back properly.
Using uplighting, event lighting can color your space with textures, patterns, and any color you can imagine. Event specialists and lighting designers can help you choose a theme that will amplify your event space and make it aesthetically pleasing to all in attendance. With today’s technology, you can even add moving lights and projections into your space to create a whole new atmosphere between defining moments and important speeches.
At every event, there are many distractions in the space that can draw your attendee’s attention away. Lighting can easily redirect the focus back to the stage and also allows you to choose the order in which you wish your attendees to see points in a program with spotlight reveals and color shifts to reflect the new mood.
When looking at venues, you will find that almost every space has basic lighting in place, mostly in overhead for path lighting. Your audio visual partner can provide more diverse and creative lighting not only to enhance and reinforce the theme of your event but accent the stationary décor you are using as well. Coloring the pillars or adding a focus on floral arrangements and pieces on your stage with lights will not only be pleasing to the eye but you can correspond your brand colors with your theme and use it as a means of advertising.
Many events are often filmed or live-streamed, and this changes the lighting needs due to cameras being more sensitive than the human eye. Separate lighting for the background and foreground is required in order for the picture to render properly in the camera. If you are planning on broadcasting your event at any point, you will want to speak to your audio visual partner about the right lighting setup to ensure proper image transfer through the camera.
