Dj Lighting Equipment - How to Choose DJ Lighting Equipment

The last piece of equipment on the mind of new prospective DJs is DJ lighting equipment. Most DJs are concerned with the equipment they are more directly involved in operating that concerns the music itself. Such equipment includes turntables, mixing boards, digital music players, speakers, and headphones. However, if you are an independent DJ who is hired for private parties, chances are that your customers do not have any house lighting equipment like they might have in a bar or club. Having your own set of DJ lighting equipment, can greatly enhance your show and lead to new referrals and new jobs.

There are a variety of different types of DJ lighting equipment available to enhance the mood and create special effects to enliven the party. No matter which particular types of DJ lighting equipment you buy, you will want to invest in a hazer. If you are working in a room that allows smoking, you will not need it, but if it is a smoke-free environment, the hazer sprays a fine mist into the air that catches light so the effects are more spectacular. Here are the other most popular types of DJ equipment:

Mirror Ball
This is the old standard, and if you have nothing else, a mirrored disco ball can do wonders over a dank, dark room with no lighting. The mirror ball can be large or small and it can be used in conjunction with white beams or colored beams of light for a more modern feel. The mirror ball is made of several small, square mirrors adhered to a spherical ball that is either suspended from the ceiling or upon a motorized stand that rotates the ball. Multiple lights can be used on opposing sides of the ball to great effect.

Strobe
The strobe light is another basic type of DJ lighting equipment. It can be small and portable, but have great power and potential, which makes it. The strobe light consists of a bright white light that flash repeatedly on and off. The timing of the lights can be manually controlled or controlled by the speed and sound of the music being played. When flashing at high speed, they create the illusion of slow motion. Optionally, strobe lights can use colored lights or colored glass overlays to vary the effect.

Split Beam
Split beam lights are the beginning of an advanced system of DJ lighting equipment. These lights can be a show all to themselves, depending on the movement system to which they are attached. These lights cast a narrow beam of light that can be white or one of many colors. An internal mirror system can split the beam into several variations. Some split beams utilize laser light. A series of beams of different colors programmed to operate along to the beat of your music create a “dancing lights” effect that create a full show out of your performance.

Moving Beam
These are basically the same DJ lighting equipment as the split beam lights, except that they are on motorized swivels and tracks that allow for a greater range of special effects. Moving beam lights are great for large rooms because they help to fill the entire space instead of being used to highlight only a single area. The movement can be operated manually, but this could require a partner. It is more common to pre-program the lights for the particular music of your performance.
