Check out these photos from a recently completed project at FBCAlexandria which included a brand new power and control system for theatrical and architectural lighting and new theatrical light fixtures within the sanctuary.

Barbizon Lighting provided all power and control materials to the electrical contractor and then commissioned and programmed the system. Barbizon also worked directly with the consultants to hang and focus the theatrical lighting system.

Rosco Mixbook

Here's a great tool for both in-person and virtual learning of colors. The Rosco MIXBOOK is a digital swatchbook that enables users to pre-visualize their gel and LED colors, and then communicate those color choices with other members of their team. MIXBOOK is controlled by Rosco's myMIX™ app. Through the app, users can generate their desired color by adjusting hue, saturation, and intensity levels, or by selecting xy values, and then send that color to MIXBOOK. Through a Bluetooth connection with the myMIX app, MIXBOOK enables users to actively explore the performance of their color choices in an environment, and continue to modify it through the app. Once the desired color has been achieved, users can save their colors to the cloud and share them with their team.
