Lighting Console Set Up: Hog 4 PC — ChurchTechArts

Last time I told you about our new lighting rig. Today, I thought I would answer the questions I’ve been getting about how we set up our lighting console. I’m going to do this in two parts—first the philosophy of why we set it up the way we did, and the second part on how we did it.

ChurchProduction.com: Under the Hood

Lighting is an important and often costly investment for any house of worship, so regular preventative maintenance should be routine. This will ensure that your lights are in good working order for years of use. Knowing how to handle routine cleaning and basic service is critical to avoid damaging your equipment while maintaining your lighting investment.
