Lighting control, power and stands

For how GAV can help with your requirements please contact the hires team by email or on 020 8537 1000.

Lighting offers powerful control over the mood and focus at your event. A combination of different lighting technologies will deliver a variety of dazzling, memorable effects.

Lighting can be complex to specify so please talk to us about the effects being sought and we will be happy to advise on how to achieve these. Depending on the scale of the requirement we often recommend a site survey and risk assessment be carried out in advance by one of our Project Managers.

Control Desks

All lighting needs to be controlled, even if you just want it to be switched on and off. What level of control you need is determined by the effect you are going for and the types of lighting fixtures being used. If the requirement is a straightforward fade in and out, the basic type of Zero88 Level 6 controller will suffice.

A large event needing pre-programmed lighting states with scene changes and light chases, all with a large number of "intelligent" and traditional lighting fixtures, will need a more sophisticated lighting desk such as an Avo-lite Pearl.
