Public Performance Venues
Equipping a live performance venue to handle a variety of performances, takes knowledge and experience. The lighting experts at RDI have extensive experience and training in theatre and stage production lighting. We work with specifiers, consultants, contractors, and end-users, ensuring that your facility has the right lighting system and equipment to enhance your venue and run your live productions reliably and efficiently.

Utilizing advanced design software, our theatrical lighting staff creates the versatility, control, and dramatic effects expected by audiences today. With a vision for the future, we strive to accommodate your future project goals and deliver a lighting system that withstands the test of time. Theatrical lighting services certainly are not just for theaters. Many of today's churches utilize lighting to create the atmosphere and dramatic effects they desire to enhance their message. Other lighting customers include schools and universities, community theater groups, nightclubs, dinner theaters, and public performance venues.
A basic, modern stage lighting system consists of a few main parts - control consoles, fixtures, dimmers, and cabling. Whether a large or small system, our team helps implement and train you to use these basic pieces to ensure that every lighting rig functions as it should. The control console is the soul of a great lighting system. With programmable presets and configurations, our theatrical lighting systems allow users to control where you turn on and off the lights and give instructions for movement. Our lighting systems can also be programmed with playbacks and theatrical cue lists, making it easier than ever to navigate the system for a simple or complex light show.
A theatrical lighting system, when executed properly, take the ideas from the hands of the lighting director and translates them into the protocol to instruct the lights. Our team offers software-based controllers that run off a computer and operate just as a traditional system would. Software-based controllers may have specialized keyboards that can be customized for multiple programming or playback setups, making this system type potentially more easy to implement and more cost-effective.
The most visible part of our theatrical lighting systems is the lights themselves. We work closely with a number of manufacturers to provide our customers with a variety of options when it comes to their theatrical lighting needs. This also enables us to give our customers a greater variety of choices when it comes to price and performance. Whether it’s conventional, moving lights, LED, effects lights, spotlights, or soft-edge fixtures, we engineer a system that’s right for your environment.
