Once you begin actually using the Arri Fresnels you quickly realize why they’re found on so many television and film production sets.
Review: Mega-Lite Drama LED W50 with DMX Controller
Considering its petite size and light weight—only 14.5 inches long and less than five pounds—we were blown away by the light output of this little guy.

CPM's reviewer finds the PRG ReNew a cost-effective way for houses of worship to convert their older ETC Source Four’s into power-saving, maintenance free fixtures.
Review: Strand Neo Lighting Control Console
It comes with one DMX universe, but fixtures from the Philips group of lighting companies do not count against your channel count. This is brilliant marketing.

A great rig for a portable church, youth room, or multipurpose room.

The new dot2 is easier to learn and use than MA Lighting's larger grandMA2. The dot2 is designed to anticipate what you want to do and guide you to the correct screens automatically.

It can hold its own alongside name-brand lights like ARRI and Litepanels, and can find its home in many church applications.
Review: Zylight F8 LED Lighting Instrument
Although it draws only 100 watts, its peak output is equivalent to the illumination from a 1,000-watt tungsten light.
Review: Chroma-Q Studio Force V 12 Phosphor LED Fixture
From 12 feet away, one fixture completely washed our test area with a very even beam. Much nicer than what I get out of my higher-end Fresnel fixtures.
Review: Chauvet Professional Ovation ED-190WW Ellipsoidal Spot
What makes the Ovation ED-190WW such a trailblazing fixture is its ability to be controlled off of any conventional dimming and control system.
Review: Jands Stage CL Lighting Console
The Jands Stage CL is a self-contained console designed to operate up to 24 fixture groups (512 channels) of LED lighting. Offers an attractive form factor: large enough so that the controls aren’t packed in too tightly, but small enough to not take up a lot of precious tech booth real estate.
Review: MA LIGHTING GrandMA 2 OnPC Lighting Control Software with Command Wing
The chance of GrandMA2 OnPC not being able to handle your rig and show is pretty much zero.
Review: Chauvet Professional Rogue R2 Spot
It’s bright enough to be used in a larger room and will look spectacular in a smaller room.

We found the console to be ideal for building up a large number of scenes or cue lists, and combining them to get a variety of looks that can be used dynamically throughout a concert or service. It feels very logical.
Review: ADJ WiFly Par QA5 Wash Fixture
Adding the amber LED allows it to mix a nice variety of reds and ambers, as well as punching up the yellows and creating nice warm whites.

It's hard to believe so much light can come out of such a tiny package.

The Tri-7 has 52 features and capabilities that let it keep up with its larger competitors just fine.
Review: Chroma-Q Force Compact LED Lighting Fixture
The color is excellent, deeply saturated, and very bright for the size. They also looked great on video, which can be an issue for some LED fixtures.
Review: Litepanels’ Croma Light
Litepanels’ Croma light is a prime example of a camera-mounted LED light designed to adapt quickly to a variable and changing lighting environment.
