Lighting scenes: Programmed lighting
One building block of lighting management is electronic lighting control. This enables various lighting scenes to be defined and stored in advance and retrieved later at the push of a button.
Programmed lighting scenes for conference and meeting rooms are a classical example of lighting management. The objective is to provide the right light for audience receptivity and thus help ensure the success of the event. Typical settings for this lighting application are: "general lighting", "accent lighting", "lecture", "beamer lecture" or even "video".
Lighting control is also a convenient and practical tool in salesrooms or offices, where lighting scenes might be programmed for "desk work", "monitor work", "meeting" and "presentation". Dimmed lighting or very bright lighting – e.g. for cleaning operations – can also be programmed in advance.
Lighting for individual occasions
Lighting can be specially adjusted to meet individual requirements without re-programming. Cross-fade times are freely selectable between one second and 15 minutes. Most lighting control systems offer the option of incorporating window-darkening and sunscreening into programmes.
